How to Clean Lungs Naturally

...

Your lungs are a vital part of your respiratory system, which is in charge of breathing. Their function is to bring in oxygen so it can be distributed throughout your body. Every day, your lungs are bombarded by toxins, such as environmental pollution, allergens, dust, cigarette smoke and microorganisms. These substances can scar your lungs, reduce your body’s oxygen intake and weaken your breathing. Natural remedies can help clear your lungs of these harmful toxins.

Step 1

Perform yoga deep breathing exercises for 30 minutes every day. Doing yoga breathing regularly can help your lungs flush out impurities such as those from cigarette smoke, according to naturopathic doctor and licensed acupuncturist Dr. Leia Melead. She also recommends getting plenty of fresh air and outdoor exercise such as brisk walking.

Step 2

Take one 500 mg rosemary capsule daily to help clean your lungs. According to botanist Dr. James Duke, rosemary herb contains antioxidants which can stimulate the flow of blood in the tiny blood vessels called capillaries in your lungs. This helps your lungs eliminate stagnant pollutants from your lungs into your general blood circulation where they can be filtered and eliminated.

Step 3

Drink one cup of honeysuckle tea every day. Honeysuckle herb can help your lungs dislodge phlegm and thereby aids drainage of your lungs, according to pharmacognosist (natural product pharmacist) Dr. Albert Leung.
