A number of lifestyle changes, most of which are recommended for everyone, not just for those with flint disease, can help to alleviate symptoms. If you smoke, find a smoking cessation program that works for you. Maintaining a healthy diet is imperative, and eating more frequent, smaller meals can prevent your lungs from laboring under extra weight and digestion. Do not attempt regular exercise until you talk to your doctor. A pulmonary rehabilitation program run by an expert is a good way to treat the whole disease, through moderate exercise, nutrition, breathing techniques, and managing the psychological toll that flint disease can take on your life.
