    1. Thanks Debbie. That days holds great memories for my wife and I. RespirTech is such a welcoming family. Hopefully I will be back one day.

  1. Can you list out your exercise program from beginning to end…your workout plan that got you to where you are. that would be helpful to those of us with CPOD (and I also had pulmonary embolism – 3 events) to sort of following in your footsteps.

    Many thanks.

    1. Hi Michael. I could write a book on how I arrived at where I am today and maybe I will one day. The short answer is consistency. Exercise everyday, follow a nutrition plan which works for you, take your meds as prescribed and set achievable goals.

  2. Hi Russell,

    I think what you have achieved is inspirational.

    I guess I’m after the same information as most of your contacts. I’m 51 years of age, and used to be a fit young man, until COPD caught up with me about 6 years ago.

    I still ride a bike and run (a lot slower, well very slow), and wanted to see if you have any advice or how you manage to run as you do with COPD?

    Do you know of any particular foods that help with lung health, or any that are particularly bad?

    What would you say are the most important measures to take to enable a better quality of life, and to continue being active loving life?

    Really appreciate any advise.

    Kindest regards,

    1. Hi Neil,
      Good to hear your still being active. I started using the Ketogenic diet (KD) about 5 years ago, this has been a game changer for me. It has decreased my breathlessness and mucus production significantly. Last year along with other researchers I published my case study on using the KD for COPD -https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fmed.2021.699427/full

      The types of foods I believe should be avoided if you have a respiratory disease are bread, pasta, rice, sugar and processed carbohydrates in general. There is science dating back decades which show processed carbs should be avoided if you have COPD.
