bronchiectasis

Bronchiectasis

Bronchiectasis is a long-term condition where the airways of the lungs become abnormally widened, leading to a build-up of excess mucus that can make the lungs more vulnerable to infection and a breeding ground for bacteria. And infections can spread to the air sacs, reducing lung function.

The most common symptoms of bronchiectasis include:

  • A persistent cough that usually brings up phlegm (sputum)
  • Breathlessness

The disease can be progressive and can lead sufferers becoming too ill to work as time goes on.

Once started on the Buteyko Method, bronchiectasis sufferers can find their breathing improves in just a few weeks, giving them more energy to do normal things such as simply running upstairs more easily.

They can also become more resilient to winter infections allowing them to be less dependent on medication.
