I am a health and fitness educator with a Master's in Public Health from Yale University. In 2017, I was diagnosed with bronchiectasis (BE) and a Mycobacterium Avium Complex (MAC) infection. Here, I provide important information about bronchiectasis and share professional and personal insights in my blog. Most importantly, I want you to know that you are not alone.
The goal of the BE CLEAR Method is to sustain lung health while building a stronger body and mind to meet the daily and life-long challenges of our disease.Through dedicated practice, the BE CLEAR Method becomes not just a road map but a travel companion for those living with bronchiectasis.
The two key elements of the BE CLEAR Method are exercise and airway clearance both of which help remove harmful mucus from the lungs. The method also employs a broader approach including effective breathing and meditation practices to deal with the anxiety and depression that is common among people with chronic health conditions. In addition, better relaxation and sleeping habits are discussed as well as the importance of a nutritious diet to maintain a sound body and mind.
