Lots of focus has been put on the cleansing and detoxification of the colon, liver, kidneys and skin. However, we often overlook our most important organ responsible of eliminating the waste from the body. The organ is the one of the most vital organs required for breathing: The Lungs. We overlook it until we face difficulty in breathing. Upon getting the breathing difficulties, we get to realize the importance of lungs for our life.
The lungs get rid of the poisonous gases and clear up all manners of toxic substances.They perform these vital tasks with every cell of the body throughout the life. Lungs operating efficiently contribute to the health of every organ of the body, including the other elimination organs.
Since the lungs have no muscles, it is important to keep the muscles of the body that activate breathing in perfect shape and function. This is probably the most important thing to consider when thinking about the health of the lungs. Breathing too low weakens the lungs. Therefore focusing on breathing deeply is the most important thing towards keeping the lungs healthy.
Steam inhalation is another way to soothe stressed and congested lungs. It relaxes them, opens them up, and brings relief. Never underestimate the power of steam for a good lung detoxification.
Herbal decongestants can make breathing better quickly. Onions, hot peppers, peppermint, and eucalyptus are all effective natural lung decongestants. They liquefy thickened mucus in the airways and not only enable better breathing but allow unwanted fluid and toxins to be more easily coughed up.
Another thing the lungs need is plenty of liquids to keep them hydrated. Dehydrated lungs will put a strain of lung function and complicate any existing problems.
Don't overlook the lungs. If we take care of them and they will take care of us. Every day can be a good day for lung detoxification.
