5 Tips to Increase your Blood Oxygen Naturally

For those suffering from low blood oxygen levels due to lung disease, every little bit counts. Increasing one’s oxygen intake any way possible seems like a good idea. If your blood oxygen level is low and you’re finding it difficult to breathe, try these five tactics for increasing the amount of oxygen your body absorbs:

  1. When the weather allows, open your windows. Access to fresh air is essential for breathing more easily. However, remember it’s important to monitor your local air quality. If you live in an urban area and can’t open the place up because of smog, consider investing in an indoor air filtration system, or items which purify air at home naturally. But Choose electronic air purifiers carefully—many of them produce lung-irritating ozone.
  2. Grow green things. Introducing live plants into your home will increase available indoor oxygen. Ferns are a great option for extra oxygen production in the home. They are relatively easy to keep alive and don’t require a lot of sunshine.
  3. Exercise. Check with your doctor about the type and amount of exercise you should be doing each day. As your breathing rate and depth increases, your lungs absorb more oxygen, and that means you’ll feel better.
  4. Practice mindfulness. Begin a daily meditation or prayer routine that emphasizes deep breathing. Five to ten minutes per day of relaxed and focused breathing can improve your oxygen intake and reduce stress.
  5. Eat fresh, iron-rich foods. Your diet can, to some extent, influence your blood’s ability to absorb oxygen. Certain foods can help improve your oxygen levels in the blood. Focus on iron-rich foods such as meat, poultry, fish, legumes and green leafy vegetables. These dietary choices can correct an iron deficiency, which could increase your body’s ability to process oxygen and make you feel more energetic. Stock up on green vegetables like kale, broccoli and celery.

If you or a loved one suffers from chronic lung disease, contact the Lung Institute at (800) 729-3065 to speak with a patient coordinator about improving your quality of life.

    Dear Ray,

    Thank you for your comment and question. We are not familiar with Nutri O2. We advise you to do research about this product, talk to people about it and use caution whenever a company claims to cure illnesses with their product. We strongly recommend talking with your doctor about Nutri O2 and seeking his or her advice. Unfortunately, pulmonary fibrosis and other chronic lung diseases do not currently have a cure. However, there are a variety of steps you can take to help you feel better, including natural ways to improve oxygen levels and using plants to increase oxygen in your home. Remember to discuss any questions or concerns you have with your doctor. We would be happy to answer any questions you have about stem cell treatment, so feel free to call us at (855) 313-1149. We look forward to speaking with you soon.

    Kind Regards,

    The Lung Institute

    I have pulmonary fibrosis diagnosed 9 years ago. I received an e-mail about Nutri O2, it suppose to increase oxygen in blood. I have a feeling it is a scam but wondering if anyone has any experience with it. I have been taking two 600 mg capsules of NAC for last 9 years and it has stayed pretty much the same. What can I do help with my pulmonary fibrosis?

    Hello Shirley,

    Although we cannot speak on stem cell therapy for cancer, we do offer stem cell therapy for the treatment of COPD and other lung diseases. In response to your second question, the length of the procedure depends on the treatment type. However if you’re looking for more information, please give us a call at (855) 313-1149 to speak with one of our patient coordinators.

    Is stem cell therapy for COPD the same as stem cell therapy for cancer? How long a process is it?

    I have COPD due to Alpha one protein or the lack of it. I understand the you use the patients stems cells in the treatment. My logic tells me that in my case the treatment benefits would not apply due to my natural lack of this protein. Is that a fair asumption?

    I had stem cell therapy July 29th to July 31 at Pittsburg Pennsylvania..I am doing all the follow up suggestion given to me at that time…My Cardiologist has examined me and plans on following up on pulmonary function test in 5 months.My breathing has improved and I seem to be getting better each day. Be sure to give your lung stem cell information to your family Doctor and he will follow your improvement. Good Luck and God bless you

    Hello, Ms. Bennett. Thanks for your questions. Please navigate to this page to see bios on our medical personnel: http://lunginstitute.com/about/ (Just click on each doctor’s name to see information on that person.)
    As for real people who have received therapy, we have a “Testimonials” webpage here: http://lunginstitute.com/testimonials/. I’m not able to give out patients’ personal contact information, however, I encourage you to contact one of our patient coordinators, either by calling (855) 621-1526 or submitting your own contact information on our “Contact” page found here: http://lunginstitute.com/contact/. Another option is to attend one of the Lung Institute’s periodic seminars, where you can meet medical personnel and receive pretty much any information you desire in person, from the staff who would be conducting treatment for you or your loved one. Here is a page that shows upcoming seminars: http://lunginstitute.com/?s=seminar. I hope this information is helpful.
    Best wishes.

    I discovered I had a 30% Scolious Bend ….went to Spine Center of the Rockies which uses the corrective system from the Clear Institute (non-profit) (they have a website) and by going 2 times a week for 6 months they moved my spine back to correct position and as they did it, they were moving the spine off my lung cavity and I was breathing better each time. I still have copd but not as badly.

    I have COPD and my daughter saw a special on TV about going into the salt mines for breathing and asked me to check on it. I did check and it was to far away to do me any good. I did find a salt machine called Saline Plus and I do believe it helps. My oxygen seems to be up higher than before. It is a little pricey and the filters are kind of expensive and they aren’t made here, and that is why they are high. However, I won’t do without mine. I bought it used and bought new filters. I would advise to buy used first to see if it will help you. Check Ebay, that is where I found mine.

    I use a flutter. You blow it and sound waves go into your lungs.This helps bring mucous up.

    Good morning to you, Patsy, and to the “Right Side of Texas.” The Lung Institute will be opening a new clinic in Dallas in the Fall. As far as the Houston area, you might be interested in reading about research being conducted at the Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) : https://www.uth.edu/media/featured/stemcells.htm. Perhaps UT could inform you as to volunteer opportunities. We wish you the best.
