Mushrooms and oats may play a role in the immune function aspect as well. Good luck to you! Anti-inflammatory foods may help some, but you will have to work with your doctor as you start adding them on to make sure it doesn't affect you in unforeseen ways.

Hello I have an issue with my lungs and respiratory system.

I have now developed a very bad cough that rarely seems to go away I know my cough and respiratory problems are related to bad allergies I have. I am allergic to pollen, trees, grasses, dust, mold, pets etc Now my cough keeps getting worse and I have noticed that it gets really bad when I am exposed to air conditioning I really need to get a handle on this as the problem is just getting worse over time I have no idea what I can do to cure this.

Can you please give me some ideas, I have tried everything to cure my allergies Thanks for any help There are some lung disorders that are triggered by changes in humidity and temperature, like Reactive Airway Disease, so the AC and wind may have something to do with it.

It can also be that the AC isn't properly filtered and you are allergic to the dust, hair, or pollen that's being spread. You could also be allergic to one of the chemicals used in air conditioning, like propylene glycol or many more. You may want to talk to a doctor and try to narrow down what allergy you have.

In the mean time, invest in ginger. It reduces inflammation, helps open airways, and can help combat many allergies. I like it as a tea. You may also want to look at turmeric and pineapple. I have suffered from allergies my whole life. I have been developing a cough that comes and goes It gets worse at different times of the year depending on the season Here is the key It always gets worse when I am in an environment that has air conditioning.

I was down south last year and it got so bad I had to return home from my vacation early This problem is getting worse over time and not better I have tried almost everything to cure my allergies I totally feel that my chronic cough is allergy related Can you please tell me what I can do to cure my cough?

I really need to do something it is starting to get out of hand.

I forgot to tell that I undergo and done my medicine more than 6 months??? You may want to talk to another doctor, just for a second opinion and see what can be done for you. There is some risk, but not really much, involved with that procedure, so if another doctor calls for it, you may want to go ahead. It will help them determine your treatment and it may relieve pressure if you do have a lot of fluid building up around your lungs.

In the mean time, maintain a proper weight, eat well, exercise moderately, and good luck. There isn't any cure as of yet, but there are some treatments that help. You will want to work with your doctor on these. There are also some natural treatments that show some promise. Anti-inflammatories may protect the lungs from damage. Think raw garlic, turmeric, pineapple, ginger, cinnamon, and many more.

I would like an outside opinion on my symptoms. Wow, Chelsi, you don't come at me with easy questions. I think you should definitely be looking at probiotics, natural anti-inflammatories, and some immune boosters. With all the antibiotics you've been on, your good bacteria will have been decimated.

You want to resupply them. You will also want to look at ginger, coconut oil, turmeric, garlic, astragalus, and mushrooms. I get sinus infections too, thanks to a bad root canal that likes to gather bacteria to it. I've had good luck with these. I also use a food-safe peppermint oil directly on the roof of my mouth and gums a few times a week. It's amazing how quickly that kicks those out. You may also want to explore some antiparasitics if things don't clear up and you will want to work with your doctors while you try herbal remedies.

I hope something works for you soon. Hi doc, i had a TB history last year. I had my medication for 6 months. And now, some sort of allergy got me and now im having a dry cough. I am worried what if the TB will come back again. Unfortunately tuberculosis reinfection is somewhat common and hard to fight when it happens as the bacteria becomes resistant to the treatment. You will want to work closely with your doctor to see if it has returned or if you are just experiencing allergies or a cold, and then follow what he or she determines is your best treatment options.

May some Essential oils by inhalations and oral ingestion could help. Warning some essential oil can't be ingested or inhaled! Always read the notice or ask at your pharmacist: I use to smoke when I was just Now i m Then I quit smoking. Just tell me what to do..???? It's going to take some time to detox your body and your lungs, Ket. Try to eat well, exercise moderately, and be patient with yourself. Alcohol and lung disease have only recently begun to be linked, Alvin.

More studies need to be done to explore exactly how much, what kinds, and how often you drink alcohol affects you. Alcohol tends to deplete the lungs of vital antioxidants.

Occasional use is probably fine. Alcohol tends to be dehydrating, which is why we have hangovers When you are dehydrated, your lungs dilate, taking in less air. Sorry, Chito, lipomas are pretty resistant to treatment. Sometimes massage and warm compresses help break up the fatty deposit, but that's pretty rare.

Most of the time you must leave them or remove them completely. I have heard some people have some luck with dietary changes away from processed foods and I've heard some talk of apple cider vinegar being helpful. Sage and turmeric may be beneficial as well. Exercise may reduce lipomas too, even though they have little to do with your weight, the oxygen and increased blood flow may break them down more.

Sorry I can't be more helpful. I have infection in one lung. Doctor has given me antibiotic. Will moderate wine oor drink aggrevate. Im Angelie i would like to ask if i have a lung disease cos i learnd smoking when i was 20 bit i started smoking soo bad when i was Smoking can definitely rob you of your breath, Angelie.

You may not have lung disease yet, but you probably want to quit smoking and take care of yourself. Wine or drink interferes with the effectiveness of antibiotics, also, when taking antibiotics you should supplement a probiotic to balance your digestion.

Antibiotics kill the bad AND good bacterium in your system, such as those needed for proper digestion. Sounds like you and your doctor are on the right track. Alcohol can contribute to lung infections, so keep it very moderate and you are probably okay. I am having COPD stage 3. There's always something you can do. Antioxidants are important, Chandran. There are many studies that show improved lung function in people who eat more fresh vegetables and fruits.

Go for the brightly colored ones like greens, pineapple, berries, and orange veggies. Ginger and coq10 could also be helpful. It improves lung function and oxygen efficiency. Breathing techniques like those used in meditation, self defense, and yoga can help you control your breathing better while also eliminating stress.

I used to take those veges and fruits mentioned above.. It makes me worried cause it started last two years ago on and off.. Honestly i am worried right now about my health.. Thanks and more power to you. Work with your doctor while trying to eat well, exercise, and avoid pollutants and allergens. Do you have any of the risk factors for esophageal cancer?
