Atelactasis: Treatment, Diet and Home Remedies

Food and Nutrition

Foods to be taken
  • Drinking at least 8 glasses of water or other fluids daily may help to thin lung secretions making them easier to cough up
  • Garlic has anti-inflammatory as well as antibiotic properties which can be made use of in healing the lungs
  • Consume 3 to 4 dried figs every day in the mornings as dried figs are good to strengthen the immune system
Foods to be avoided
  • Refined and processed foods
  • Fatty and junk foods

Yoga and Exercise

  • Improve your pulmonary function and reduce the risk of a collapsed lung with deep-breathing exercises.
  • Practice pursed-lip breathing to help conquer a shortness-of-breath feeling that is common to people with lung disease and to improve lung function.

Home Remedies

  • Encourage movement and deep breathing in anyone who is bedridden for long periods
  • Position your body so that your head is lower than your chest (called postural drainage). This allows mucus to drain better from the bottom of your lungs
  • Encourage coughing
  • Clap (percussion) on the chest to loosen mucus plugs in the airway
  • Change positions often if on bed rest. Shifting to a different position can help promote drainage of mucus in the lungs
  • Take several deep breaths every hour to help expand your lungs and treat atelectasis
