Having a chronic lung disease can make exercise difficult. Depending on the severity of your condition, even walking across the house may be difficult. And yet, you know that you have to exercise and move in order to improve your health, and to maintain a certain quality of life. So, what do you do when you can’t breathe enough to move around, but you know that you need to move around?
You practice strengthening your lungs from the couch.
At the Lung Health Institute, we believe that your quality of life should not be determined by your lung disease. That is why we are going to walk you through this process of improving your lungs from the couch, and then we will continue to help you fight the inflammation in your lungs with our wellness plans and our cellular therapy treatment.
The Center for Disease Control recommends at least 2.5 hours of exercise each week to maintain a healthy lifestyle. And while that is one of the ultimate goals of our treatment, it’s not a good place to start if your COPD is keeping you confined to the couch. Instead, we need to start exactly where you are right now: sitting down.
Read through this plan to improve your lungs from the couch, and then follow along with one of our Anti-Inflammatory Initiative™ plans to start living a healthy lifestyle, full of anti-inflammatory recipes, breathing exercises and gradual physical activity.
As you continue to improve your lung function from the couch, you may notice that you have more energy to do more things around the house. We’d love to help you recapture some of the quality of life you lost to your lung disease. Our Lung Restoration Treatment™ has helped many patients Breathe Easier™. In fact, 91.6% of our patients* have reported a significant improvement in lung function and quality of life within three months of receiving treatment.
