9. Maintain Proper Hygiene

People who are more susceptible to lung infections, which can lead to breathing difficulties, must practice proper hygiene. Proper hygiene helps prevent common infectious respiratory diseases like colds and the flu.

  • Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water.
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer when you do not have access to soap and water.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or handkerchief while coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid crowded places during the cold and flu season.
  • If you get sick, stay home from work or school until you are feeling better.
  • Vacuum your home, especially the rugs and carpets, more often. Consider using high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) vacuum cleaners.

10. Get Regular Health Checkups

Regular health checkups can help keep your lungs healthy and functioning properly. Remember, when it is about your health, prevention is always better than the cure.

Most lung diseases go undetected until they are serious. However, during a health checkup, doctors can easily examine the condition of your lungs and pick up any trouble signs early.

Always consult a doctor if you experience symptoms of lung problems, such as shortness of breath during simple activities, pain when breathing, dizziness with a change in activity, or a persistent cough.

Take any medicines prescribed by your doctors timely and do not stop your medications on your own, as it can lead to serious consequences.

  3. I have never smoked, I exercised my lungs by dancing ballet, I live in a National Forest and have the best oxygen, those around me who smoke make sure to do it in the garage or outside, I studied classical singing and received voice lessons from age 14 to when I was 30, I sang at nearly every funeral and wedding my large family ever had, and at church, I exercise my lungs four times a day and can hold my breath for 30 seconds. I still got asthma and have to take treatments four times a day and sometimes my lungs hurt. I take my medicine faithfully and rightly. I got a good bit worse later in life because I got really sick from something that wasn’t my fault and it hurt me. I’m now an old lady and my asthma could be really bad, but isn’t because I take care of myself. My asthma is hereditary, but how bad it is depends on me, and I won’t be like an ancestor who died from one asthma attack. It all depends on me and what I do to protect myself.

  4. RJS, hello, I brought my brother to the doctor yesterday(December 14,2017). My brother had a cancerous tumor on his kidney. They took his kidney out. His doctor told him to sing for 20 minutes every day. His doctor is Chinese & he said he sings “God Bless America” everyday. It’s very good for the lungs.

  5. I smoked for seventeen years, from ages 40 to 57. Now I’m 65 and I have excellent lung health, except for a recurring cough. I have maintained a running program since I was 25 (maybe 30 miles a week when I was young, and about 5 miles a week now, as my legs are not as strong as they once were), and this has left me with good wind, and a healthy heart. That is, if you exercise in such a way that you end up breathing heavily, you can beat the harms of smoking. That is my experience. Probably a certain amount of genetic luck is at play here, since obviously some people have bad lung health even in youth.

  6. Really this page is very very important for the Asthma patient and I am very grateful to this site. Today i have learnt that how to increase the strength of Lung, oh beautiful, I will follow the each directions and exercise regularly from today. and from today I will start again singing .
