Research News from Bronchiectasis News!
Anybody else with bronchiectasis have a family connection with Ehlers-Danlos? It's just come to my attention they're borth a connective tissue condition, and hereditary.
My experience of bronchiectasis.

Having suffered multiple chest infections since childhood I was diagnosed with bronchiectasis aged 45 years. Only now, aged 60 years, do I appear to have defeated my ailment.

It is well known now that the stomach & digestive process is integral to health, is an important part of the immune system & even affects mental health. This is why I never take antibiotics & never will unless my actual life is threatened.

I believe that the profusion of antibiotics prescribed to me from an early age enfeebled my natural defences by wiping out the natural stomach biota & perhaps weakened the efficacy of the medicine.
I have always, until recently, suffered stomach ailments - I was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome - & also suffered depression though, in my case, drinking too much alcohol was a major exacerbater for both, & all my other problems!

I gave up alcohol totally - it had always amplified my chest mucus - &, red meat & chocolate, to make digestion easier & I eat lots of fruit & veg.
I exercise as much as possible but especially when my sputum becomes discoloured. Even when well & my lungs feel completely clear, a stint of running, especially in cold air, brings up quantities of mucus & ‘clears the tubes’.

After around 3 years of this regimen I was a lot better but the final eradicator of my problem – time will tell - was to 'make' a salt-vapour inhaler, details of which I found mentioned on sites like this one.

I purchased one ‘Pond Fog Machine Atomizer Ultrasonic Mist Maker Humidifier’ from eBay for £1.99, plonked it in a glass of slightly salted water, inhaled the mist & now my sputum is clear most of the time &, though I have often felt I might fall ill on the morrow, I have not suffered any chest problems since.

I do hope my experience may benefit my fellow suffers,
Good luck,
Patrick Baker
