WHY DO YOU NEED TO DETOX AND CLEAN UP YOUR LUNGS?


Everyday, our lungs are at constant attack from killer pollutants and microbes that get deposited from the air you inhale. 

Yet, we continue to ignore this important organ in our body. 


Your lung is made up of 90% space and balance 10% tissues! Diseases ranging from asthma to sinus infections are caused due to mucus that your lungs build up. 

Mucus builds up in your lungs as a natural defence mechanism to prevent certain bacteria and pathogens from causing issues. 

But this mucus causes a whole lot of other infections as well!

When you can’t breathe, nothing else matters!

One of the primary functions of your lungs is respiration. 

Respiration refers to the process of movement of oxygen from the outside air to the cells within tissues, and the outflow of carbon dioxide in the opposite direction which is a metabolic waste gas from tissues. 

This is a process that allows the inflow of oxygen into your lungs and distribution to billions of cells all over your body. 


You are better off as long as you allow the respiration process to function efficiently, and for that to happen, you need clean lungs. 

The importance of oxygen reaching the billions of cells is completely proportionate to your immunity.

Why you should practice deep breathing?

Take a deep breath and allow your lung to expand to the fullest, and that’s the amount of oxygen you need when you breathe in. 

Now, if you observe closely how you breathe, you would notice that you are not breathing enough to expand your lungs to its full capacity. 

This shows that you take less oxygen in and remove less carbon dioxide from your body, and allow the waste gas to stay in your tissues. 

This compromises your cellular health. 

It makes your body more acidic; it doesn’t allow you to lose weight; it doesn’t allow you to heal. 


Getting in pure oxygen and removing carbon dioxide as quickly as possible is the key. 

In most lung disorders, you will find that the carbon dioxide levels in the body builds up and that’s what creates most of the issues. 

A healthy lung is pink and a smoker’s lung is black. 

Despite graphic warning, most of us continue to smoke and many more start smoking. 

By now, most of us know what health problems arise from smoking, with lung cancer and heart disease being the most life threatening. 

However, you can quit and regain healthy lungs if you are willing to stay the course.

Rejuvenate your lungs!

Regular detoxification of lungs will help in smooth functioning and  expulsion of toxins. 

So, what does it take you to clean out your lungs? 

Quit Smoking: Chemicals that you inhale through smoking interfere with your body's method of filtering air and cleaning out the lungs. Further, it irritates your lungs and causes overproduction of mucus. 


Breathe deep: To exercise the lungs, you need to inhale slowly and deeply so that the tissues oxygenate well.

Eat raw honey every day: Honey brims with antibacterial and antiseptic properties.

Get rid of mucus producing foods: Processed meat, dried & frozen convenient foods, fast foods, and dairy & non-dairy confections trigger mucus production.

Eat more alkaline foods like root vegetables, leafy greens, garlic, lemon, and raisins.

Eat sprouted seeds & nuts.


Get a massage:  It distributes lymph evenly throughout the body. It also promotes deep breathing which is essential to exercise your lungs

Drink plenty of warm water to drain out toxins

WHY IS IT BETTER TO SIP WATER?

As there is art of eating, there is an art of drinking water as well. Human body consists of about 37.2 trillion cells and 75-80% of these cells live in water. 

They require water for strong immunity, metabolic activity, weight loss, and cellular function. 

The way we drink water is extremely important to our health. We hear everywhere the benefits of drinking water and we see people trying to drink more water, but there is a way to drink water.


Sit and sip your water slowly!

When you sip your water slowly, it mixes with saliva. 

Your saliva is alkaline in nature while your stomach is acidic in nature for all the right reasons because your stomach requires a certain amount of acid to digest your food and that’s great, but too much acid with excess amount of food or bad food is a cause for worry. 

So, we want our saliva get into our stomach so that the alkaline effect of saliva can stabilise excess acid in the stomach. One way to get the saliva into your stomach is the way we drink water.

YOUR WHOLE BODY WANTS YOU TO LAUGH!

We have always been told that the laughter is the best medicine, but there’s more to it than just raising your spirits for a couple of minutes. You go to a park, you see children running around, laughing away and living every moment of it. On the other hand, you see their parents stressed, tired, or rushed and that’s what you get from the busy, modern life.


In fact, laughter gives you many amazing beneficial effects. When you laugh, your brain releases endorphins. Endorphins are responsible for making you feel happy, they create the feelings of joy and euphoria, and they bring down your stress levels in the process.  So, never turn away from a person who helps you put a smile on your face. A good laugh reduces the level of cortisol, epinephrine (adrenaline) and dopamine, and increases the production of serotonin and endorphins which reduce effects of stress, and helps you stay relaxed. 

When you laugh, as many as 15 facial muscles gets their act together and provides you a full-blown wo…
