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 An,

    Unfortunately, there’s no cure for chronic bronchitis at this time. However, because stem 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 stem cell 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,

    The Lung Institute

    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 stem 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
