This year, buy something really useful for your loved ones. Developed for a family member with breathing problems, the Pulmonica is a pulmonary harmonica designed for nonmusicians that exercises the diaphragm and chest muscles to improve breathing. The low tuning is meditative and soothing, and provides a pulsing that helps loosen lung and sinus congestion. After congestion is cleared, breathing is easier.
“This makes a great gift for anyone who has ever been a smoker or exposed to second-hand smoke, letting them know that you want them to stay around for a long time. It really is the gift of better breathing, but it’s fun too. And best of all, we have taken a high-quality harmonica and tuned it so everyone can benefit from deep breathing exercises,” says Dr. Keller, inventor of the Pulmonica.

“Important for everyone, but essential for the millions of people with COPD, asthma, or other breathing problems, deep belly breathing delivers more life-sustaining oxygen to our cells,” says Dr. Keller. “The result is simultaneously relaxing and energizing.”
In a recent study at the Sarasota Senior Friendship Center with nine volunteer COPD patients, who met for a rolling eight-week program that included education about COPD, diaphragmatic breathing, mild exercise, diet, and medication. “All of the patients received a Pulmonica and instructions to inhale and exhale using long, slow, deep and complete belly breaths on the lowest holes manageable for at least five minutes every morning and evening,” says Dr. Keller.
Before and after lung function testing and quality of life assessments showed remarkably consistent results. All nine patients improved, and 91% of their pre-test post-test scores improved, which is a dramatic outcome. All of the patients credited at least some of their improvement to the Pulmonica.
“Adults often lose about 50% of their lung function by age 70, and smokers lose lung function even more quickly, so the Pulmonica can help almost everyone breathe better,” says Dr. Keller. “Many people with shortness of breath or a chronic cough think those conditions are a normal part of aging, but they’re not.”
Handmade in Germany by the world’s oldest harmonica manufacturer, the Pulmonica has stainless steel cover plates and smooth edges that make it a joy to play.
