I am recovering from being so sick I just wanted to die for the second time. I am very sensitive to chemicals , especially perfume. Which will bring me to my knees, so to speak. I’m changing my diet. No more dairy. I’m tired of chocking on thick mucus. Immune system down. Reading books on COPD. Lots of new information. Herbs. And listening to my Dr. I’m recovering go back to work next week.

The foods you eat will cause a lot of your problems. I gave up blue cheese dressing first , MOLD. Dairy , heavy mucus. Breads, yeast. Yes it’s hard to give these things up. I love cheese and . But I want to breathe.

The biggest and most impactful food changes that I found are eliminating sugar, dairy, wheat/processed food and simple carbs like potatoes, pasta and breads and all oils except olive and coconut. In their place I added fresh vegetables, berries, / , almond milk, good fats like and lots of cruciferous veggies like , , and . If you give your body good nutrients, it responds with energy. Have faith…and set goals that are tough but reachable as being able to measure positive progress raises your spirits and your courage to keep pushing forward. Learn to put yourself first…because if you don’t care for you, you can’t take care of anyone else.

My partner has also found the no sugar/no wheat/no dairy/no starch the best way to improve his lungs. Incredible results although tough at first. I support him in this and we have found lots of other foods we can eat instead. Luckily, grocery stores are catching on and providing gluten-free and dairy-free products. It takes 14 days for the improvement to start.. and not a day less. It is well worth two weeks of your life and you’ll never want to go back to harmful foods when you can breathe so much better. to all!

80% of your immune system is in your gut. Therefore your ability to fight off infection depends a lot on what you are fuelling your body with. Take heaps of vit C, and any other fermented food that you can get hold of. Lay off processed, packaged food, including breads and grains, exercise every day, and your body will protect itself.
DMH January 15 at 6:20am Just one issue I have with your post and it’s logic is that the flu or a cold are not lung infections nor do they make your lungs weaker..actually as your immune systen gets stronger through support, you no longer need the shots to help you avoid everything. Instead of a shot that has dubious reward, add a probiotic, Vitamin D3 and a/ / supplement to boost your immune system and help those lung get stronger and heal.
