In brief: No

No meditation nor any natural known substance has proved to improve lung function.
Meditation as any associated maneauver can help the persons to understand their inner energy. Also to be calm & rational on responses as well as learn to understand your body better. Also to improve your response to different reactions, your limitations & attributes.
