There are many medically-approved treatments available these days for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, also known as COPD. However, you may not know that there are also natural treatments you may be able to use at home to supplement the treatments prescribed by your doctor.
One natural COPD treatment that may help you Breathe Easier™
COPD is a progressive and chronic lung disease that may make it more difficult for you to breathe easier. However, there are a variety of drugs and other medical treatments that may be used to treat your condition. While these treatments may be helpful for you, there are also natural treatments that you can use at home that may help you manage your COPD symptoms.
One of the most important natural treatments you can use is to improve the air quality in your home. You may not have considered the factors that can lower your home’s air quality and make it harder for you to breathe. For instance, paint fumes from a newly-painted room may make breathing more difficult. Even more common things like cleaning chemicals, dust and pet dander may also have negative effects on your breathing.
To help yourself breathe easier, there are several things you can do. One thing you can do is arrange to stay in a hotel or with a friend or family member if your home is being painted. You may also want to ensure your house is aired out to remove all the paint fumes before you return. Also, there are a variety of air filtration systems you can purchase, and these systems range in size and can keep the air cleaner in one room or even in your whole house. By filtering out common lung irritants like chemical fumes, dust and pet dander, these filtration systems may help you breathe easier. However, you do want to make sure you clean your filtration system regularly. Otherwise, lung-irritating mold and mildew may begin growing in your system.
