Tips to Improve Your Lung Health

The very first thing we do when we are born is breathe! However, do you ever wonder how your lungs function or how you breathe?


As we breathe, our body inhales oxygen and exhales carbon dioxide. The diaphragm is a set of muscles linked to the lower part of the lungs that regulate our breathing. When it expands (together with other lungs and rib muscles), it drives air into the lungs.  


The body has a natural defense mechanism intended to keep germs and other particles out of our lungs and there are several key tips that patients may follow additionally to lower their risk of respiratory illness. 


Follow these simple tips to keep your lungs in good shape. Not only will these tips benefit your lungs, but they will improve your overall health as well!


Eat Healthy

It's no surprise that eating a balanced diet has several health advantages, one of which is enhancing your respiratory system. Here are some foods that keep your lungs healthy naturally. 

·        Ginger contains anti-inflammatory qualities and is one of the best foods to improve lung health.

·      Pomegranate: known to suppress tumor growth, this fruit is high in antioxidants such as ellagic acid, which is making breakthroughs in cancer research.

·       Flavonoids, vitamin E, and vitamin C are all found in apples.

·       Grapefruit: the flavonoid naringin, present in white grapefruit, inhibits cancer-causing enzymes, and pink grapefruit is high in lycopene which is good for.

Quit smoking

Avoiding cigarettes at all costs is one of the best ways to protect your lungs. Tobacco use can cause lung illness and even cancer over time, so the sooner you quit, the better. Even though there are obvious benefits to quitting, after only five years, your risk of cancer in your esophagus and mouth is decreased by half!


Exercise regularly

We are all aware of the great impact that exercise has on your heart, and as a result, your heart can pump blood to your lungs more effectively. Your lungs absorb more oxygen, which contributes to an increase in total lung function. One should try to work out for 30 minutes, 4-5 times a week. 


Reduce your exposure to air pollution

The air quality outdoors varies from day to day and might be hazardous to one's health at times.  Changing climates and natural calamities can also have an immediate impact on lung health. Understanding how polluted air impacts your health and effective techniques for reducing long-term exposure can help you and your family stay healthy.


Schedule a routine check

Even if you are feeling healthy, regular checkups can help avoid illnesses. This is particularly true for respiratory illnesses, which often go unnoticed until they are severe. During a visit, your healthcare professional will listen to your breathing and address any concerns you may have. You can learn more about potential solutions if you require healthcare equipment from your healthcare provider.
