2 hours ago

1. Don't Smoke. Cigarette smoking is the major cause of lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema.
2. Avoid Exposure to Indoor Pollutants That Can Damage Your Lungs. Secondhand smoke, chemicals in the home and workplace, and radon all can cause or worsen lung disease.
3. Minimize Exposure to Outdoor Air Pollution. The air quality outside can vary from day to day and sometimes is unhealthy to breathe. Knowing how outdoor air pollution affects your health and useful strategies to minimize prolonged exposure can help keep you and your family well.
4. Prevent Infection. A cold or other respiratory infection can sometimes become very serious. There are several things you can do to protect yourself: Wash your hands often with soap and water.
5. Get Regular Check-ups. Regular check-ups help prevent diseases, even when you are feeling well. This is especially true for lung disease, which sometimes goes undetected until it is serious.
6. Exercise. Whether you are young or old, slender or large, able-bodied or living with a chronic illness or disability, being physically active can help keep your lungs healthy.

9 Tips for Healthy Lungs Rush System

6 hours ago

1. Diaphragmatic breathing. Among the many things you can do to keep your lungs functioning properly are some simple breathing techniques, according to Mollie Brinkman, RRT, a pulmonary rehabilitation therapist at Rush Oak Park Hospital.
2. Simple deep breathing. Deep breathing can help you get closer to reaching your lungs’ full capacity. As you slowly inhale, consciously expand your belly with awareness of lowering the diaphragm.
3. 'Counting' your breaths. You can also increase your lung capacity by increasing the length of your inhalations and exhalations. Start by counting how long a natural breath takes.
4. Watching your posture. Since the lungs are soft structures, they only take up the room that you make for them. “You want to occasionally sit tall and reach overhead to make more room for your lungs,” Singh says.
5. Staying hydrated. Getting enough water is as important for the lungs as it is for the rest of the body. “Staying well hydrated by taking in fluids throughout the day helps keep the mucosal linings in the lungs thin,” Singh says.
6. Laughing. “Laughing is a great exercise to work the abdominal muscles and increase lung capacity,” Singh says. “It also clears out your lungs by forcing enough stale air out that allows fresh air to enter into more areas of the lung.”
7. Staying active. “Regular, moderately intense activity is great for the lungs, and when you increase your daily activity you get three things done at once: healthy lungs, a healthier heart and a better mood,” Singh says.
8. Joining a breathing club. “If you can’t be active because of lung problems, you can join a breathing club,” Brinkman says. These are support groups for people with lung and breathing problems.
9. Pulmonary rehabilitation. For those with chronic lung disease such as asthma, post-COVID-19 lung disease, or lung cancer, the Rush Oak Park Hospital Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program can help you return to a more active lifestyle.

5 Ways to Keep Your Lungs Healthy and Whole

1. Author: Colleen M. Story

Estimated Reading Time: 7 mins
2. Don’t smoke or stop smoking. You probably already know that smoking increases your risk of lung cancer. But that’s not the only disease it can cause. In fact, smoking is linked to most lung diseases, including COPD, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, and asthma.
3. Exercise to breathe harder. Besides avoiding cigarettes, getting regular exercise is probably the most important thing you can do for the health of your lungs.
4. Avoid exposure to pollutants. Exposure to pollutants in the air can damage your lungs and accelerate aging. When they’re young and strong, your lungs can easily resist these toxins.
5. Prevent infections. Infections can be particularly dangerous for your lungs, especially as you age. Those who already have lung diseases like COPD are particularly at risk for infections.
6. Breathe deeply. If you’re like many people, you take shallow breaths from your chest area, using only a small portion of your lungs. Deep breathing helps clear the lungs and creates a full oxygen exchange.

7 natural ways to cleanse your lungs Medical and health

8 hours ago

1. Steam therapy. Steam therapy, or steam inhalation, involves inhaling water vapor to open the airways and help the lungs drain mucus. People with lung conditions may notice their symptoms worsening in cold or dry air.
2. Controlled coughing. Share on Pinterest. Controlled coughing can help send mucus through the airways. Coughing is the body’s way of naturally expelling toxins that it has trapped in mucus.
3. Drain mucus from the lungs. Postural drainage involves lying in different positions to use gravity to remove mucus from the lungs. This practice may improve breathing and help treat or prevent lung infections.
4. Exercise. Regular exercise can improve people’s physical and mental health, and it decreases the risk of many health conditions, including stroke and heart disease.
5. Green tea. Green tea contains many antioxidants that may help reduce inflammation in the lungs. These compounds may even protect lung tissue from the harmful effects of smoke inhalation.
6. Anti-inflammatory foods. Share on Pinterest. Eating cherries can help fight inflammation. Inflammation of the airways can make breathing difficult and cause the chest to feel heavy and congested.
7. Chest percussion. Percussion is another effective way to remove excess mucus from the lungs. A healthcare professional or respiratory therapist will use a cupped hand to rhythmically tap the chest wall to dislodge trapped mucus in the lungs.
