How to Prevent Respiratory Disease

Updated on August 21, 2011

Respiratory Disease!

Preventing occasional or serious respiratory diseases requires some changes to your lifestyle. Although occasional respiratory diseases such as colds, flu and infections caused by allergies are not life threatening. There are far more serious respiratory diseases such as asthma, cystic fibrosis and tuberculosis fibrosis that would require further medical treatment. Nevertheless, this article contains a brief list of changes you need to make to maintain a healthier lifestyle.

1) Smoking

Smoking is a major cause of respiratory diseases. Failing to quit smoking before the symptoms of respiratory diseases appear will result in serious respiratory diseases. If you can stop smoking now, you’re going to save yourself, your family and friends from any sort of serious illness in the future.

2) Rest

Rest is essential to help your body’s immune system battle against bacteria and diseases that invade the body. Constant running around and busy work could prevent this from happening, resulting in regular respiratory diseases such as colds and flu.

3) Stress

Stress is another major cause of several health issues. Worries and concerns eventually lead to health issues such as heart problems and stroke. It is important that you avoid as much stress as you can to help your body fight against any sort of disease.


Overall, respiratory diseases can be prevented if you allow your body to fight for your wellbeing. However, preventing your body from doing its job will only worsen any illnesses and your going to fall ill almost all the time.
