Salt Therapy for Bronchiectasis
Bronchiectasis is an abnormal widening of one or more of the airways and that can lead to increased mucus in the enlarged airway which becomes prone to infection.
Treatment can include regular physiotherapy and courses of antibiotics and even inhalers and this treatment can continue for lengthy periods of time.
The symptoms of bronchiectasis include:
* Coughing up lots of sputum is the main symptiom but the amount of sputum can vary
* Tiredness and poor concentration
* Wheeziness is common
* Some people become breathless … particularly when exercising or exerting themselves
* Some people can cough up blood because the airways become inflamed
* Some people with bronchiectasis also suffer from sinusitis
* Recurring chest infections are also common because the extra mucus that is difficult to clear becomes a breeding ground for bacteria.
The severity of symptoms varies greatly. Some people have only mild symptoms and become used to an intermittent cough. They may have the occasional chest infection, but a diagnosis of bronchiectasis is never made, or is made years after symptoms begin.
At the other extreme, some people have severe symptoms with an almost permanent chest infection. Many people with bronchiectasis fall somewhere in between these extremes.
