2 days ago · Turbocharging the body's healing efforts in MAC & Bronchiectasis

I read the "beating bronchiectasis" book also and am adjusting my diet accordingly. Not sure of "Terry Wahls" diet. Am trying to incorporate all of Daniel's suggestions as much as possible. Doubt I do the acupuncture. But healthy eating can't be bad! I think my percussion vest is helping also along with nebulizing. I guess time will tell for all of us.

Hello! Loved ready this. I too purchased and read "beating bronchiectasis" and am applying a lot of his advice and what you have said to a new lifestyle. I have a repeat CT scan next August and my goal is to have a great improvement in the results. Have not tried the kimchi yet though. Hope it tastes ok 🙂

Terri, Hello and Happy Thanksgiving! I am new to MAC and this forum and the information has helped tremendously. I just recently received my diagnosis but am presently on no meds. I feel I am doing pretty well. I just received a percussion vest and nebulize twice daily. I have a complication of colitis so am very nervous about taking any antibiotics. I have a follow up appointment with my pulmonologist this Monday and have many questions after seeing all the precautions that everyone takes. My doctor did not cover anything like the gardening, hot tubs etc. It seems logical to me that this is a disease that could easily reoccur since as you said the circumstance to get it has not changed. Your information is always helpful. THank you for that.

THank you! I was worried constant inhalation of saline might make it moist and increase problems. That is good to know.

Thank you so much for this information! It is encouraging to hear about your MAC improving without the treatment. So far I still feel pretty well with this and the treatment sounds somewhat dubious so have not started antibiotics yet. I have found out so much information from all these posts. Head back to the doc on Dec. 3rd and have lots of new questions for him. I am still pursuing getting through all the red tape to obtain my vest. Now it seems it will be covered but they are still looking into it. Fingers crossed.
