You’re probably thinking… singing? Really? But studies have been focusing on how our bodies respond to music and how they can use it to treat lung diseases. There are five major benefits of singing, like reducing shortness of breath or even increasing your lung capacity, among others.
I love singing! It is my go-to therapy. I used to sing a LOT, but I noticed that I was short of breath. That should have told me that something was wrong. After my PH, then later CTEPH, diagnosis I noticed that as I sang I would get dizzy. I stopped singing thinking I would never sing again. That was several years ago. I became depressed and didn’t want to do anything. After reading this article, I decided to resume singing, just not as energetic as I used to. It feels so good to sing again! And I notice that my lung health is happier for it as well! Thank you.
I’m glad that this article was able to help you find that you can sing again in some way ! It’s good to know that not every goal is out of reach with PH. I love singing too , although I’m not great at it!!! Country is my go to 🙂 keep singing!
I’d love to know the apps too! I used to have a game on the Wii called “sing it” and you could sing along to it and get points. Kind of like the game Guitar Hero or Rock Band but for singing . Check it out on youtube to see what it is.
