Here are 5 ways how to improve your lung health naturally:
Smoking destroys the cilia that help in removing pollutants and impurities from the air we breathe. It ages the cells prematurely and reduces the oxygen intake. Smoking is directly linked to lung cancer. This is due to the high amount of toxins inhaled during smoking. Smoking is a bad habit – fight it for your lung health!
Minimize indoor air pollutants by reducing the use of chemical based products. Air fresheners and cleaning products contain harmful chemicals. Use natural cleaning products and avoid places with high pollution. Use air cleaning devices to clean the indoor air.
Use Home Salt Therapy to maintain a good hygiene over the whole respiratory system. It helps to clear clogged airways and reduces inflammation. It strengthen the respiratory immunity and fight pathogens. The salt aerosol particles also clean the indoor air. The negatively charged particles of salt stick to the positively charged particles of pollutants, dust and allergens; kills bacteria and fungi.
Have a healthy diet with nutrients that improve and protect lungs. These are beta-carotene and antioxidants from carrots, berries, apples, citrus and greens. Ginger, garlic, onions, turmeric are also very good to reduce inflammation and clear mucus. Reduce the intake of fatty foods, meat and dairy products.
Breathing exercise is another tool that can help. Sit straight on a chair in a ridding position, slightly press your abdomen and slowly lower your body forward; put your hands onto your knees and relax; breathe slowly only through your nose, so that neither your abdomen nor chest moves, for about 10 minutes.
