Bronchiectasis is a form COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) characterized by damage, thickening, and widening of the bronchi. Mucus tends to build up in these widened airways that allow bacteria to flourish there and lead to frequent lung infections. Bronchiectasis can arise from any lung injury. Homeopathic medicines for bronchiectasis can help prevent further progress of pathology but cannot reverse the damage that has already occurred in the airways. Most cases arise from damage from a condition known as cystic fibrosis. Other conditions that can lead to bronchiectasis include repeated lung infections, abnormal immune system function, an allergic reaction to a fungus known as allergic aspergillosis, alpha 1 – antitrypsin deficiency, HIV, autoimmune diseases and primary ciliary dysplasia. It can also develop in cases of inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis) and rheumatological diseases (rheumatoid arthritis and Sjogren’s disease).
