It can be a frightening experience to hear from your doctor that you have a chronic lung disease, such as COPD. Many of these diseases are not curable, and they grow worse over time. Without treatment and care, they can progress rapidly and negatively affect your quality of life.
However, a lung disease diagnosis is not the end of the world. It’s challenging for sure, but know you are not alone, and that modern medical treatments can help you breathe and control the symptoms of lung disease.
Your physician will walk you through treatment options and discuss a plan with you after your diagnosis. At the Lung Health Institute, we understand you may want to know more, though, so we want to provide some tips about what you should do after you’ve been diagnosed with a chronic lung disease.
Some simple steps to take after a lung disease diagnosis
- Don’t panic — Nobody wants to be diagnosed with a chronic lung disease, but it happens. This doesn’t mean your life is over. There are treatments and methods that can help you live a good quality of life despite your lung disease.
- Treat your whole body — Keeping your lungs healthy and strong can benefit from more than just medication and lung treatments. You must get your body the nutrition it needs for its cells to be equipped enough to heal damaged tissue and keep your lungs strong. At the Lung Health Institute, we offer three Anti-Inflammatory Initiative™ (AI²™) plans to help you get the nutrition your body needs to help resist inflammation and infection.
- Explore your treatment options — Your physician will recommend treatment for your lung disease, and you should follow his or her instructions, but you should also look for other options. Your physician may not know about cellular therapy since it’s relatively new to the medical field.
This is a treatment that uses your own cells in concentrated forms to target lung infection and reduce inflammation. At the Lung Health Institute, we offer this as part of our Cellular Therapy™, which has helped more than 85 percent of 6,500 patients Breathe Easier™.
