Hot weather post!

It is a funny thing this weather, lots of folk struggling with their breathing ?

However it has been the best thing for me, after months of difficulty, the sunshine and heat over the last 3 days have been magic!

I have been able to drop the nebulisers and my lung health has got itself back to 'normal' feeling great and no hyper responsive airways -sheer bliss!

Long may it last!

Breathe easy folks!

Hi Polly,

Glad it's helping you. I'm still keeping going but it does feel like my personal sumo wrestler has put a few pounds on (He's the one who sits on my chest throughout the day & night ensuring that my breathing is a little harder).

Hi Penelope,

Yes good progress here at last!!! New meds working ok and well enough now to pushing on through to resume social activities.

There is a great respiratory exercise group now in Gloucester and pleased to have had the go ahead 3 weeks ago to join that-it makes so much difference!

Hope all is good with you?

Much love,

Polly

Maybe you are low or deficient in vitamin D ?

85% of us here in Uk are either low or deficient in their vitamin D bloods.

Vitamin D3 is anti inflamatory.

Vitamin D is known to help lungs.

Ok, thanks for that information, definitely needed in the winter I think!

Is it something you use? And how much should we take?

My family and friends take a (safe) dose of 5000iu D3 daily along side another anti inflamatory K2 100mcg, they go well together. taking D3+k2 and also vit A (retinoic acidvitamin A) has helped my husband's asthma, he feels he no longer needs his inhalers, last used over two months ago and has also helped my Mum's COPD, she has far less breathing problems.

Not saying these vitamins will help everyone as we are all different.

Ps. Vitamin A the one with retinoic acid in it, in mice trials, helped mice create new air sacs.
