I hope everyone is keeping as well as they can and keeping out of the cold. I have not been around so much of late as my work has been mega busy, plus my new lady also takes up a lot of my time, but I just wanted to say I do pop in and read all the stories and news. Since my lung collapsed I have stayed pretty healthy and think it may be down to the weird and wonderful things I have researched to be very benifical in being anti-inflamotory for the body and generally good for our conditions. I am not a doctor or medically trained but I do read a lot of medical papers in this area and find that my body feels a lot better for it. I do of course excercise as much as I can. My yearly spirometry read I have mild obstruction, although my CT say both moderate emphysema and bronchiactesis. My lung age is 49 although I am 36, I hope to see a slight improvment as I have only stopped smoking since my diagnosis 1 year before. But anyway I digress, here is my list of things I hope it helps.
sulforaphane- Broccoli Extract
Curcumin- 95% curcuminoids
D & Calcium
Cod Liver Oil
Cloves - (most anti- inflammatory ingrediant you can get) taste awful but well worth it
Beetroot juice- good for your lungs, I drink this most days
Natural green tea - full of antioxidants
Raw garlic (Nights I am not with my girlfriend)
I could go on but this is the crux of my daily diet and additions.
I hope you may find it of some use
All the best
