Home remedies for COPD: 11 natural treatments

3. Practice breathing exercises

Practicing breathing exercises aim to improve the symptoms of COPD by improving the muscles a person uses to take breaths and improve their ability to exercise.

A 2012 Cochrane systematic review compared groups of people with COPD who used breathing exercises with people who did not for 4–15 weeks.

Breathing exercises included:

Pursed-lip breathing . This is when a person inhales through their nose and exhales through tightly pursed lips. Diaphragm breathing . This means contracting the diaphragm in order to breathe more deeply. The belly visibly expands while breathing in, and it deflates when breathing out. Pranayama . This is a controlled breathing technique common in yoga practice. Pranayama involves concentrating on areas of the body involved in breathing.

The researchers found no differences in symptoms such as shortness of breath and quality of life, but people who used breathing exercises experienced improved exercise tolerance. Breathing exercises may help people with COPD who have difficulty exercising.
