Ali Sparkes and Maria, from the Medicine Centre in Neath, talked at length about lung health both the traditional and a more holistic approach.
Ali spoke mostly about all the different inhalers available and the different jobs they do, whether they are short acting or long acting. Also she made sure we all knew how to inhale the medications properly - as we all know, different ways foe different inhalers.
Maria's interest is in Chinese medicine. She brought along various seeds for us to try which could supplement our diets.
We learned that all dairy foods (milk, yoghurt, chocolate etc) are bad for mucus, whilepumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, quinoa, black kale and pot barley are so full of nutrients, we only need sprinkle a little into our food, especially when appetite is poor due to general ill health.
If you don't have a health food shop close by, most of these things are avialable now in your local supermarkets. So, why not give it a go and give yourself a boost ?
