Lung Disease Treatment

Lung Care is A Combination of Things

In most traditional settings, lung disease treatment involves taking medications and using breathing machines. Lung care, however, involves much more. Your body works like a multi-part machine and each part relies on every other part in order to function correctly. When one part is not working as it should, it causes stress on the other parts and eventually they become ineffective. With your lungs and your heart, this is even more true because the oxygen from your lungs travels throughout every cell in your body, as does the blood in your heart. The heart and lungs, in turn, are directly connected as one can't function at its best without the other.


Lung disease treatment needs to take this codependency into account. Lung care involves medication, but it also involves eating a diet that offers the most nutritional value to your body. It involves activity that optimizes your heart health so your heart can help compensate for the lesser functioning of your lungs without becoming overly burdened. It also involves brain health. This includes your psychological well-being.


Your mind is a powerful thing. If you allow things like despair, depression, or anger to rule, this sends negative messages throughout your body. Your body becomes tense, functions slow down, the blood becomes sluggish, and you feel an overall general dis-ease. When you keep positive, you are allowing your mind to send messages to the rest of your body that all is well, or at least it will be. This allows your body to continue working without restraint. It behaves in a manner that all is indeed well. True lung disease treatment requires complete body and mind treatment.
