Recovery help for breathing??? Recovering from astma attack and pnumonia.

Other than the stuff the doctor gives, I'm looking for advice on what to do to help feel better and recover faster. I have had some really bad astma attacks over the last couple weeks and ended up with pnumonia. It's getting better, but I'm still weak and recovering. I can't loose time working, as I'm a single parent. (Bad economy and all) So I've been trying a quart of cranberry juice a day, and suff like that. What else can I try?

  • I have found with my asthma the only thing that helps me to recover after a bad bout is to rest as much as you can when you come home. I don't know if it is possible but with the lack of oxygen your muscles get fatigued and have to regain the energy level they once had.

  • Eat well. Take vitamins. Get as much sleep and rest as you can. Drink lots of water. Get some fresh air. Make sure your home is as dust free as you can. Just general health things that will help you recover your strength.
