3 Ways to Boost Your Lung Power

By David Blyweiss, M.D., Advanced Natural Wellness

Take a deep breath.

For most people, it’s not a big deal. But if you suffer from chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD), breathing may be one of the most difficult things you do.

COPD is a group of conditions that includes emphysema, chronic bronchitis and asthma. Smoking is the most common cause of COPD. But pollution and chemical fumes can also set you up for respiratory problems later in life.

COPD causes permanent damage to the lungs. It also limits the amount of air you can breathe in. If you try to take a deep breath or exert yourself too much, you might experience shortness of breath, wheezing, chest tightness and mucus coughed up from the lungs.

Luckily, I’ve found 3 very effective ways you can strengthen your lungs, even if you have chronic respiratory problems or COPD. Use them individually or combine them for even more lung power.

N-acetylcysteine. NAC has been used for years to safely treat emphysema, bronchitis, asthma and cystic fibrosis. Because it thins mucus, NAC reduces coughing and improves oxygen saturation in the blood.1 It also supplies antioxidant protection to lung tissue by boosting glutathione levels. For ongoing lung support, I recommend taking 200 mg of NAC three times a day.

Ivy Extract. This trailing vine isn’t just a decorative accent to your back yard. Recent clinical research shows that ivy leaf extract reduces both mucous and bronchial spasms. Several double-blind studies show that ivy extract improves lung function and reduces asthma attacks. One of these studies found that ivy leaf was just as effective as prescription drugs for treating the symptoms of chronic bronchitis. Take 100 mg once or twice daily.

The World's Quickest Solution for Ending Prostate and Urinary Misery

This has recently been revealed to be one of the only real breakthroughs in prostate health.

The seeds of a strange fruit (sometimes called "Chinese Apples") hold powerful phytonutrients that are a revolution in prostate health.

In fact, UCLA and Veterans Administration research have now proved this to be true.

Not only that, but it may be the worlds quickest solution for ending prostate misery.

Simply stated, these phytonutrients represent a huge step beyond beta sitosterol, saw palmetto, and other phytosterols alone.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids. The omega-3s in fish and fish oil can reduce inflammation in the lungs and airways. They can also improve the ability to exercise in people with COPD according to Japanese researchers. Among the 64 patients they followed, those who took an omega-3 supplement were able to walk farther without becoming breathless. Add fish to the menu and start taking 3,000 mg of a high quality fish oil supplement every day to support healthy lung function.

Not being able to breath isn’t just inconvenient, it can be downright scary. And, while these 3 supplements can help support lung function, it’s important to see your doctor if you experience chronic breathing problems, a persistent cough, difficulty sleeping or you simply can’t keep up with your friends the way you used to.

Catching respiratory problems early can help you control your symptoms before they become debilitating.

    I’m 59 years old and female. I was diagnosed a couple of months ago with COPD and I was beyond scared! My lung function test indicated 49% capacity. After having had flu a year ago, the shortness of breath, coughing and chest pains continued even after being treated with antibiotics. I’ve been smoking two packs a day for 36 years. Being born without a sternum caused my ribs to be curled in just one inch away from my spine, resulting to underdeveloped lungs. At age 34 I had surgery and it was fixed. Unfortunately my smoking just caused more damage to my already under developed lungs. The problem was having is that I enjoy smoking and don’t want to give up! Have tried twice before and nearly went crazy and don’t want to go through that again. I saw the fear in my husband and children’s eyes when I told them about my condition then they start to find solution on their own to help my condition.I am an 59 now with moderately severe COPD emphysema which I know was from my years of smoking. I started smoking as a teen in high school when smoking was socially acceptable. I remember when smoking was permitted in hospitals. It was not known then how dangerous cigarettes were for us, and it seemed everybody smoked, i was able to get rid of my COPD lung condition through the help of total cure herbal foundation my husband bought, totalcureherbsfoundation .c om has the right herbal formula to help you get rid and repair any lung conditions and cure you totally. I wish anybody who starts smoking at a young age would realize what will eventually happen to their bodies if they continue that vile habit throughout their lives.
