In order to prevent and strengthen the lungs that have already undergone covid, experts recommend "strengthening" the body from five sides. Experts advise paying attention to nutrition, in particular vitamins, physical activity, as well as hygiene and avoiding bad habits.
Foreign scientists have found that human lungs have the ability to heal themselves. Reported by RIA Novosti.
“First, the damage is healed. Over time, the tissues heal. It can take three months, a year or more to return to a pre-illness state,”the source quoted researchers from the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center as saying.
It has been learned that proper nutrition and plenty of fluids help the body to better protect the mucous membranes of the respiratory system, which will increase resistance to infection and tissue damage. Russian experts note that it is also important to provide complex vitamin protection of the body. In particular, it is necessary to consume foods with omega-3 fatty acids, the researchers note.
In addition, physical activity is an equally important element in strengthening. Researchers have found that when exercising in the human body, the number of special enzyme molecules that help fight pathologies increase.
For patients who have suffered pneumonia as a result of infection with coronavirus, at the moment, many breathing exercises and physical education complexes have been developed. Among them are Buteyko's methods, full, chest, abdominal breathing.
As for giving up bad habits, first of all, experts advise paying attention to smoking. According to American experts, smoker's lungs are much less likely to recover from covid.
At the same time, experts advise turning to hygiene. Prophylactic rinsing of the nasopharynx at the end of the day will help restore the mucosa. Brushing your teeth and washing your hands more often will also help protect your body.
