How to Manage COPD, Lung Congestion and Emphysema Symptoms
COPD, Lung Congestion and Emphysema
October 16th, 2017 MagniLife

COPD, lung congestion, and emphysema are all serious issues that lead to a lot of discomfort. People experience tightness in their chests and often feel short of breath when they have these health problems. The symptoms seem to intensify during flu season, when phlegm buildup and chest congestion tend to get worse.

Fortunately, there are ways you can relieve many of the symptoms you experience. While these techniques won’t cure COPD or emphysema, they will make you feel much better and improve your quality of life. Use all of the techniques to get the best results.

Get Regular Exercise

When you have emphysema or COPD, the last thing you feel like doing is exercising. However, you need to get your exercise in if you want to breathe better. Exercise can actually increase your lung capacity. That will allow you to take in more air and breathe much more comfortably.

If you get your exercise in at the gym, be careful. Gyms are full of germs, making it easy to catch everything from the common cold to the flu. Wipe your machine down before you get on it to kill all of the germs. Also, change out of your gym clothes and take a shower as soon as you get home. That way, you will get all of the benefits of exercise while mitigating the risks of going to the gym with COPD or emphysema.

Drink Lots of Water

Water is a natural COPD and emphysema remedy. It can even help with lung congestion that comes from the common cold. When your lungs are congested, they contain a lot of mucus, so you end up coughing and hacking all day long. Water thins the mucus out, making it easier to get out of your lungs. Get your eight glasses of water in every day to reduce the symptoms that come with phlegm buildup.

Alleviate Stress

Stress makes lung problems worse. When you are stressed, you can become even shorter of breath and your airway inflammation can become worse. Practice mindfulness and meditation to alleviate your stress. You will be amazed by how much better you feel when you aren’t as stressed.

Use a Lung Cream

A lung cream, like MagniLife Breathe Easy Chest Cream, doesn’t just soothe away the aches and pains that are associated with chest congestion and phlegm buildup. It actually helps control the buildup on the inside, too. Your mucus will break up, and you’ll start feeling better. You’ll breathe better and won’t feel as achy or tired.

Avoid Triggers

Dealing with mucus and phlegm buildup is never easy, but you can make it a bit easier by avoiding triggers. Certain things will make your condition worse, such as smoke; smog; hot, humid air; and cold, dry air. You should also avoid high altitudes, as that can make your condition worse.

Use an Incentive Spirometer

You need to learn how to take deep breaths, but that’s not an easy task if you have COPD or emphysema. An incentive spirometer will help. Practice using the spirometer so you’ll learn how to open up your lungs and breathe deeply. Just don’t push yourself too hard. You don’t want to feel lightheaded. Stop the exercise if that happens.

If you suffer from chest congestion as a result of COPD or emphysema, you might feel as if all hope is lost, but that is hardly the case. Use these tips as a guide to open up your lungs. From lung creams to breathing exercises, you have lots of great options to help you feel better.
