Hi, I have had bronchiectasis for 63 years and so think that I have been around the block many times in relation to drugs,diet, supplements, and alternative therapies. If any of it actually made a huge difference, somebody would be very rich and we would all be well. However, having said that, I find nebulising saline (0.9% for bronchs) helps loosen the secretions. Also, a registrar who went on to be a respected CF consultant told me years ago that saline is very effective against pseudonomas but that it is so cheap that no proper reseach has been funded to confirm it. Drug companies preferring to pay to test expensive drugs. There is some evidence that people who live or go to stay in the region of Spain where there are salt mining caves have very little lung infection problems or find an improvement in their condition. We have a few artificial salt caves in this country. They are expensive and quite far from me and there does not seem to be an overwhelming positive result from using them. Salt pipes are easy to obtain but reviews don't appear to justify the price. Also, with inhalors and nebulised antibiotics I am reluctant to irritate my lungs more than necessary. Having said all of that, everybody with bronchiectasis is very different, withdifferent toleration and reaction levels to treatments. If it helps you, go for it. I would very much like to know how youget on..
