1 day ago · Mac + lung cavity in MAC & Bronchiectasis

I have a doctor who specializes in preventive medicine. One of the three I have – GP, lung specialist and preventive. I stopped horrendous coughing I had for over a year, three days after she got me to take 400 mls of celery juice that was a miracle for me. She supported my 18 months of antibiotics with a few supplements and probiotics on alternate days. After 12 months of antibiotics, she asked me to go plant based basically, and I could also have 2 eggs per week and wild caught salmon 3 times per week – 70 gram portions. At 12 months the cavity was reduced by a quarter. 6 months later the cavity has gone. Still have to see final results 2 years down the track in November. I cannot believe how well I have felt considering I have been taking 11 antibiotics – 3 days per week for 18 months now. Eyes ok, health good, a shock to find the cavity, and surprising to have it gone. I'm also on a spiritual path – but who knows which or may all have contributed to my good health at 77 years. I believe my preventive health doctor has assisted my system to cope with all the antibiotics. My lung doctor says 'it was the antibiotics'. Who knows?

stopping 4/8. Check again in November to see how I am going. I feel sure giving up dairy, reducing protein, moderate plant based eating and celery juice as well as the meds. 17 months down and 1month to go. No eye issues with the medication. I am retired so can live the easy relaxed life. I'm 77. A young 77.

online to stop on 4/8. Visit lung specialist again November to see how I'm going – not sure about the mycobacteria. For what it is worth, my coughing stopped 16 months ago after being advised by preventive medicine doc to drink celery juice. After 12 months of coughing, the cough stopped 3 days after drinking the celery juice. I still take it, however with apple beetroot ginger and little garlic. More palatable.

I stop the antibiotics early August, and do not see my lung specialist again until November, so time will tell what happens then. Will stay plant based, with minimum 200 grams seafood per week, plus 2 eggs outside the plant based guidelines.

Hi thumper guy – My lung specialist was straight down the line with antibiotics. My alternative doc gave me supplemeents which she gets from New Zealand probiotics the days I am not taking antibiotics, and several hi quality others. I have used oil, and even though the main eating plan is vegan, she recommended salmon/seafood 70 grams 3 times per week and up to 100 grams, and two eggs, the rest is mostly plant based, which I have been experimenting with, some fails (taste) and others work. Salads, root veggies, lots of berries and nuts, almond milk (formerly loved dairy). I have only been on that style of eating for 9 months. The cavity had diminished by 3/4 8 months back, but closed over 4 weeks back. Also doing a fair bit of Spiritual reading and audio. on youtube.

I would try a complementary medicine doctor – my doctor is on the ball, and she does not use over the counter stuff – but the best researched quality – specially tailored for me and my situation.
