Yes: Take care to avoid all respiratory irritants (smoke, cold air, mold and dust) even if you do not think you have allergies. Try a anti-inflammatory diet, lower carbohydrates, fruit and vegetable rich. Learn yoga breathing, the inversion postures may be very helpful. Enhance your vitamin d , a, and c levels to fight infection, inflammation, and heal. Good luck with your lifestyle exploration.
