When monitoring blood oxygen for COPD regularly and your readings look stable and pretty good, you may have a question - what to do next? This article will discuss some methods to make your blood oxygen level even better.
You can increase the amount of oxygen in your blood naturally. These methods are not all proven by research, and are not a replacement for medical treatment. For people with COPD, they may not be easy to incorporate, but you could try:
- Areca Palm (Chrysalidocarpus Lutescens)
- Mother-In-Law Tongue (Sansevieria trifasciata)
- The Oxygenating Money Plant (Epipremnum aureum ← Use the scientific name when searching)
- Gerbera Daisy (Gerbera Jamesonii)
- Chinese Evergreens (Aglaonema modestum)
You can use a pulse oximeter to check your blood oxygen level at home, and use some of these natural approaches to increase your blood oxygen level on your own. Whether you are suffering from a low oxygen level, or your oxygen levels have already stabilized, you may still improve them further by improving your environment at home. And while these are no replacement for medical treatment, they may help you make living with lung troubles that much easier.
