How are your lungs?

Have you been told it’s impossible to cure that cough?

Do you have to hold your breathe sometimes hoping beyond hope that you aren’t going to explode into a full on loud, messy, spraying coughing fit that turns peoples heads because they think you are dying, totally and dangerously contagious and just that little bit scary to be around.

Do you get a sore throat and freak out because you think ….”that’s it, I’ll be getting pneumonia before you know it” double pneumonia if you are lucky! There’s nothing there to protect you from the bugs lurking in the nooks and crannies of your surroundings and your loved ones. Double pneumonia if you are lucky! There’s nothing there to protect you from the bugs lurking in the nooks and crannies of your surroundings or your loved ones.

I know just how you feel….I’ve been there and know it all backwards.

And just to top it all off…have you been told you have an “Incurable Lung Disease” with a prognosis of some hellish proportions that will stop your life from being anything near what you envisioned when you were in your young, wild and free years that have now been thrown into outer orbit by your local GP or Specialist. The life you envisioned when you were in your young, wild and free years that has now been thrown into outer orbit by your local GP or Specialist.

Well, bugger them.

I was told the exact same thing. My “condition” was incurable and would have to be treated by antibiotics for the rest of my life. There was no way around it, I was totally stuffed  and may as well get used to it, was what I was told.

I’ve never agreed with people who have said “you can’t do that” and after several medical tests ranging from many sputum tests, Asthma, Cystic Fibrosis, Scratch Test for allergies, blood tests, x-rays and finally a bronchoscopy (which I refused to have because I thought it was an unnecessary load of rubbish that would traumatise my already worn out and exhausted body – let alone the discomfort it would cause) I was diagnosed with Bronchiectasis at the ripe old age of 26. At this stage I had already completed my Registered Nursing Course and had an idea of how the medical system worked. I remember thinking – clear as day – when told I’ll have to rely on antibiotics for the rest of my life ….”just watch me”.

I’ve managed to Cure that Cough

It has taken me many years of trial and experimentation, many infections, many antibiotics, super expensive herbal supplements, many ridiculously priced consults with naturopaths, many arguments with Drs (and being thrown out of one particular Drs rooms), many different diets, many different sporting activities, a total direction change in  work, several businesses, one 23 yr marriage and six sons to figure it out.

Now its 30 yrs later, no antibiotics for years, no coughing for ages, no infections for years, great energy and an awesomely enthusiastic grip on my life.

Join me to find out how I have done it and I’ll take you through this epic journey of recovery.
