If a physician recommends oxygen therapy, it is important to try it and see if it makes being active easier and sleeping more comfortable. It is important to see whether it makes life better overall, because if it does oxygen therapy users typically do not care as much about how using the equipment looks. Most importantly if someone needs to receive oxygen 24 hours a day, it is the one therapy that has been proven to improve survival in COPD sufferers.
It is important to avoid processed foods. Your plate should contain lots of color. This means you should have blues, reds and dark green foods when you consume your daily meals. You want to avoid a lot of brown and white foods on your plate. If you notice this, this often means you food is highly processed. Another thing that is helpful is to sometimes to have a food diary. This means simply that you write down everything that you eat and consume for that day. It will help you calculate the number of calories you have consumed and subsequently keep your calorie number right where it should be.
