Resource Guide Series: Recipes for a Lung Healthy Meal

Enjoy our recipes? We’ve put a meal together just for you.

Eating a balanced and healthy diet is important, but for people with chronic lung diseases, not all foods are created equally. Foods such as cured meats, dairy and cruciferous vegetables can cause symptom flare-ups, such as wheezing, increased mucus production and shortness of breath. While avoiding foods that can cause your symptoms to flare is important, it can be difficult to think of foods you can eat. Even with all of the alternatives, fatigue can make feeling up to cooking a healthy meal challenging.

At the Lung Institute, we want to help you feel better and breathe easier, so we’ve created Exhale: A Mini-Meal Recipe Guide as the first in our resource guide series. This interactive and downloadable recipe guide is a complete meal. It can be printed, so you can store it with your other recipes and use it whenever you want.

Resource Guide Series: Recipes for a Lung Healthy Meal

We hope you enjoy our recipe guide, and keep checking-in with us to see updates to our blog and for news about our resource guide series.

It’s time to enjoy eating, so call your family and friends, and invite them over to try cooking this lung healthy meal together.

Let’s eat!

    Dear Sir,
    I have had Copd since 1999, I have been diagnosed with emphezyma for over 10 years. I have had a double lung reduction done in 2013. Do you think this cellular treatment would help me in any way?

    Dear Carol,

    As with any treatment, including medications, cellular treatment success is based on a variety of factors. For some people, treatment may help them quickly, and for others it may help them over time. Feel free to contact us at (855) 313-1149 to discuss your questions.

    Kind Regards,

    What is the success rate with cell therapy for IPF? My husband has had it for almost 3 years. Is taking Espriet tab 9 daily. Contacted you in 2014 & was told he had to be cancer free for 5 years. Was dx in 2013 w/prostate cancer. PSA continues close to zero. Is hard to wait 5 years when prognosis is so poor for this disease. Lung transplant is not An option we want to take right now being hebis 69 1/2.

    Dear An,

    Unfortunately, there’s no cure for chronic bronchitis at this time. However, because cells can promote the healing of lung tissue, they can help people with chronic lung diseases potentially improve lung function and promote better breathing. For more information about cellular treatment options and to have your questions answered, feel free to contact us at (855) 313-1149. We look forward to hearing form you soon.

    Best Regards,

    Dear Doug,

    We’re sorry to hear that you’ve been going through such a difficult time with COPD and that you’re finding it difficult to afford your prescriptions. We recommend talking with your doctor and explaining that you’re having trouble affording your prescriptions. Most doctors can help you find patient assistance programs and low-cost generics. Also, we did some research to see what patient assistance programs are available, and here’s what we found. Because you’re on Medicare, you may qualify for their pharmaceutical assistance program. To learn more about the Medicare Pharmaceutical Assistance Program click here. It’s important to remember to always discuss these options with your doctor. If you’re interested in learning more about cell therapy at the Lung Institute, feel free to contact us today at (855) 313-1149, and we would be happy to answer your questions.

    Best Regards,

    The Lung Institute
