Q: What constitutes good lung health?
A: Good lung health means being able to breathe easily and without feeling fatigued. Lung and chest ailments can be devastating to sufferers and their families.
Many are life-threatening and gradually result in a slow decline in health.
There are numerous lung diseases including asbestosis, bronchitis, bronchiectasis, bronchial asthma, emphysema, chronic cough, cystic fibrosis, pulmonary fibrosis, pneumoconiosis and pulmonary tuberculosis to name but a few.
Q: Is It Possible to Reverse Lung Disease?
A: I prefer not to use the word "cure" when talking about lung disease since many are related to lifestyle problems, unless they are the result of a gene dysfuntion.
Cure is a popular medical buzzword, although the medical field cannot provide cures. (Many people argue that this is on purpose since it would put the medical
establishment out of business.)
Every health condition has a cause. When you take away the underlying cause and follow the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Plan, your body will have the support it needs
to repair itself, in many cases.
When you remove the cause and support your body with healthy lifestyle choices and nutrients, your lungs will often grow healthy again.
You may call this a cure, but I believe it to be making healthy lifestyle choices.
