COPD is mostly caused by smoking but may be inherited as well. Some may be susceptible to chronic bronchitis and need preventive care, however, an evaluation from your primary physician is recommended as they will know your body and any restrictions you may have. Dietary help such as eating more fruits and vegetables and high quality protein is recommended. Avoid alcohol, refined sugars, processed foods and fried foods. Try to improve diaphragm strength with exercises recommended by a pulmonary physician. Low impact regular exercise with walking can also help.
