Indoor #airquality may not be something most people think about. Here are 3 reasons it’s important for #copd patients to pay attention to the air quality in their home. . 1. Poor #indoorairquality Can Make Symptoms Worse Particles, chemical fumes and other airborne irritants can easily enter the #lungs, and this means they can also increase the irritation of your #lung tissue. . 2. Poor Indoor Air Quality Can Lead to More Exacerbations This is especially true if there is lots of dust, mold spores and other particles in the air of the home; even common household cleaners can leave behind fumes that can trigger an #exacerbation.  3. Poor Indoor Air Quality Can Increase Risks of Secondary Infections A common effect of COPD is that the immune system is weakened, and when a weaker immune system is combined with poor indoor air quality, COPD patients can be at greater risk of secondary infections. These infections are often caused by airborne bacteria and viruses in the air of your home, and they can lead to more serious conditions like #pneumonia. . .

I have a story for you. 📖 . I don’t think I’ve ever felt as bad as I’ve felt for the past few weeks and for as long as I’ve felt bad...EVER. I don’t remember a time at least. . Enter Symphony of the Cells. Cue the... . :::Angels singing ::: 👼 . I did the respiratory protocol for my Emmy-bean and I taught John how to do it for me. We both are two days out from the protocol and are 98% back to normal again. I also did a mini version for baby E and his coughing has ceased as well. He and I still have a tad of a runny 👃 but other than that...good as new! . I’m in awe (which, why?! Bc I know these oils work!!) and gratitude and I want to share this with every person on the planet. . This is the second protocol I’ve done this week (the other for a friend) that had profound results. . Oils are powerful plant medicine you guys. I’m so happy I have them. . . . . . #plantmedicine #soc #symphonyofthecells #oilwell #synergistic #maketimeforoils #familyhealth #respiratorywellness #lunghealth #coughbusting #happydance

HEALTHY LUNG MONTH – OCTOBER 2019:HOW MASSAGE CAN HELP (Part 5) Massage for COPD Massage treatments will vary according to the stage of COPD. Massages will help you to relieve stress & reduce pain, just be aware of which type of massage will suit you best based on the stage of your COPD.  Stage One ·  occasional bouts of shortness of breath &  coughing ·  you can choose from many different types of massage eg. you could start with Swedish massage & then move on to Thai massage or deep tissue massage, which could include some myofascial release therapy to work on the connective tissue between muscles which can get tight & restrict movement  Stage Two ·  involves breathing difficulties upon exertion ·  all types of massage can be selected since there is no exertion involved. Thai massage may be problematic in that you will be actively moving into positions you may not be used to, potentially causing exertion & breathing difficulties  Stage Three ·  more difficult to do simple daily activities ·  only massage where you allow the massage therapist to do everything for you eg. Swedish, deep tissue, hot stone massage, reflexology foot massage, lymphatic massage  Stage Four ·  severe reduction in air flow & difficulty moving ·  massage must not require active participation. If you can’t lie face down the massage in a scan be done in a seated position.  Aromatherapy massage using oils such as peppermint, eucalyptus & wintergreen can help to clear waste from the lungs & sinuses  Things to remember about massage for COPD:- ·  benefits of massage can be felt immediately, but the benefits will increase with regular massages so ideally make weekly appointments or 10 weeks minimum. Then evaluate your progress ·  be fully hydrated for your massages & ensure the same for 2 full days after your massage to assist your body in detoxification  #massage #massagetherapy #lungs #respiratoryproblems #lunghealth #respiratoryhealth #respiratorytherapy
HEALTHY LUNG MONTH – OCTOBER 2019:HOW MASSAGE CAN HELP (Part 4b) Massage for cystic fibrosis Common Signs and Symptoms of CF:- ·  salt laden skin ·  persistent productive cough ·  frequent bouts of pneumonia, bronchitis, similar lung conditions ·  shortness of breath ·  wheezing breath ·  bowel challenges ·  poor weight gain efforts  Massage Considerations for CF Patients:- ·  thoroughly clean & sanitize your massage room space before seeing a CF patient due to increased risk of infection  #massage #massagetherapy #lungs #respiratoryproblems #lunghealth #respiratoryhealth #respiratorytherapy #healthylungs #breathing #deepbreathing #cysticfibrosis  #cysticfibrosisawareness  #lungfunction #cysticfibrosislife #cysticfibrosisproblems
HEALTHY LUNG MONTH – OCTOBER 2019:HOW MASSAGE CAN HELP (Part 4a) Massage for cystic fibrosis ·  affects approximately 30,000 children & adults ·  approximately 1,000 new cases of CF diagnosed each year ·  average life expectancy as of 2017 has increased to the mid-40s ·  a genetic condition which effects breathing & digestion, due to thicker than normal mucus forming in both the lungs & pancreas ·  usually given oxygen to help with the symptoms, but massage can improve breathing, when focused on the respiratory muscles, potentially reducing the need for oxygen therapy ·  being unable to breathe properly, for long periods of time, has heavy physical, emotional & mental implications, so by easing breathing difficulties, massage can reduce anxiety & improve general mood, promoting better life management & pursuit of goals ·  fluid formation prevents the body from utilising chloride, a component of salt, in cellular fluid osmosis, causing the fluid to become a thick, sticky secretion which blocks the airways. This reduces air ventilation,  making breathing difficult, & can increase infections, inflammation & respiratory complications ·  cardiovascular exercise where possible should work alongside massage to improve lung capacity ·  research shows significant reduction in pain, & improved breathing, both in the acute & clinically stable clients ·  myofascial release on muscles around the rib cage can be beneficial with breathing difficuties ie.Rectus Abdominis, Oblique muscles, Scalenes, Intercostals, Serratus anterior & posterior, Quadratus Lumborum & Erector Spinae muscles ·  vigorous styles of massage, such as sports massage, vibration & tapotement techniques can encourage movement of phlegm & fluids  #massage #massagetherapy #lungs #respiratoryproblems #lunghealth #respiratoryhealth #respiratorytherapy #healthylungs #breathing #deepbreathing #cysticfibrosis  #cysticfibrosisawareness  #lungfunction #cysticfibrosislife
Autumn in the Middle Palace ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With the shift into autumn, I’ve witnessed myself being drawn to this point. The Lung is the Yin official of the autumn season. It teaches us about purity. We breathe in the Heavenly Qi, allowing the oxygen to mineralize our blood and body. With every exhale the Lung teaches us to let go the way leaves do, honoring our change and maturity. This manifestation of self-knowledge requires self worth and the letting go needed to receive your richness ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ◉ L U N G  1 - M i d d l e  P a l a c e “One enters through the middle palace into the inner palace, the place where “God” resides. It contains their essence. Brings security and inspiration, restoring the connection with “God” and Nature. For people who are out of touch with the breath of heaven, where there is no quality or essence. The richness and joy of the palace should be felt every time we breath in. The spirit bathes every breath with the quality of being able take in.” - PLN
“By The Grace Of God I Am What I Am”  1 Corinthians 15:10  Since I had my Bilateral Lung Transplant and had to be in bed to rest up it has given me time to reflect on my life and the setbacks I have had in my life. I am grateful for those setbacks because they have made me a stronger person. I know that it is by the grace of God that I am what I am and that he has a special plan for me. May you find peace in knowing God is on your side.  #breatheforsheila  Please go to my website at: BreatheForSheila.org

HEALTHY LUNG MONTH – OCTOBER 2019:HOW MASSAGE CAN HELP (Part 3)  Massage Therapy For Asthma ·  relax your muscles & open up your lungs, encouraging good breathing technique ·  stress & anxiety are treated like an allergen & can cause spasm & constriction of airways & difficulty breathing. Massage manoeuvres the muscles to relieve stress & anxiety ·  massage for asthma not only helps to treat the symptoms, but also improves circulatory, muscular & nervous systems ·  remove the substances that contribute to asthma attacks. Cold, dry air causes the bronchospasms & airway constriction, so massage can help to decrease symptoms by providing warmth through friction, while easing muscle tension & decreasing the production of mucous in the lungs, thus improve breathing . A massage in warm, temperate air will not only relax the body's response to these substances but also offer mental relaxation  Massage does not replace the need for inhalers, but may reduce their usage. Peak flow measurements can be used to assess the effectiveness of the treatments.  #massage #massagetherapy #lungs #respiratoryproblems #lunghealth #respiratoryhealth #respiratorytherapy #healthylungs #breathing #deepbreathing #asthma  #asthmaawareness  #lungfunction #asthmasucks #asthmatic #asthmarelief #asthmatreatment #asthmamanagement #asthmaattack #bronchospasm

HEALTHY LUNG MONTH – OCTOBER 2019 HOW MASSAGE CAN HELP (Part 1) It is a common belief that massage is for stress & tight muscles but it can also highly beneficial in respiratory problems, whether due to a medical condition, allergies, pregnancy or as part of post surgical rehabilitation. When the accessory respiratory muscles at the front & back of the body are tightened, normal breathing becomes restricted but specific massage techniques can lengthen & relax these muscles to improve breathing capacity & function. Restricted breathing is a common sign of stress, & shallow short breaths replace a natural breathing pace, due to the muscles around the rib cage & abdomen tightening, constricting air. In this state it is almost impossible to reach a relaxed state, bringing about issues such as panic attacks.  Massage can retrain the body to relax & consequently improve breathing, by relaxing the muscles, & also helping to improve awareness stress levels.  Examples of respiratory issues that may be improved through massage include:- ·  allergies ·  sinus problems ·  asthma -  airways are persistently inflamed, & may spasm, causing wheezing and shortness of breath ·  bronchitis - A sudden infection of the airways, usually by a virus, sometimes with a chronic productive cough, as in chronic bronchitis which is a form of COPD ·  bronchiectasis - a long-term condition where the airways become abnormally widened, leading to a build-up of excess mucus, making the lungs more vulnerable to infection ·  pneumonia ·  cystic fibrosis - a genetic condition causing poor clearance & accumulation of mucus from the bronchi, resulting in repeated lung infections ·  chronic obstructive pulmonary disease(COPD/COAD) - lung conditions defined by an inability to exhale normally, which causes difficulty breathing ·  emphysema - lung damage allows air to be trapped in the lungs in this form of COPD, resulting in difficulty exhaling ·  lung cancer  #massage
I had more time this Sunday afternoon to explore the SIAS #university campus here in #china. Today was a higher air quality advisory than normal (sadly), and I really felt it. I had purchased this #mask prior to leaving the 🇺🇸 and I was grateful for it as its particulates filtering rating is 99%. It made an immediate difference. It fascinates me that something like this mask is an everyday and "normal" sighting. Since I've been here, I've had more "looks" by the #chinese because I am clearly a foreigner, than any "looks" I may have received today wearing this mask. #necessity #lunghealth #breathing #pollution #airquality #sustainability #environment #lungs #swallacesings #jazzflygirl
