Throughout the year, we often hear about the need to do a cleansing cure for the liver, kidneys, skin, or even the intestine from time to home. However, why don’t we ever hear about doing a lung and bronchial cleanse? After all, these organs suffer from the external consequences of pollution and the accumulated toxins every day.

In this article, we’ll explain how you can do a lung and bronchial clearance to improve your respiratory system and overall health. Don’t worry; these are natural, inexpensive, and very simple solutions to put into practice!

What is a lung and bronchial cleanse?

Lung and bronchial cleansing is different from those that focus on other organs, as it requires major life changes, and its effects are a little slower. For this reason, instead of doing it for 15 days or a month, it’s more about incorporating these changes gradually and according to the possibilities of each person.

According to traditional Chinese medicine, the state of our lungs is reflected in our skin. This organ performs its maximum regeneration work from 3 to 5 in the morning and is affected very negatively by the feeling of sadness, according to this belief system.

Next, let’s take a look at some tips that will help us to perform a proper cleanse of the lungs and bronchi naturally. In a short time, you will notice how your overall health improves markedly!

Move and sweat

Exercise is a crucial part of any cleanse.

Exercise can’t be missing from any type of cleanse. However, in this case, it’s essential that we perform a medium-intensity exercise at least two or three times a week.

It doesn’t need to be long duration. Just 20 or 30 minutes is enough if you can start sweating in this time.

If you’re one of those people who don’t sweat easily, you can get used to consuming ginger every day to enhance this mechanism. This can be consumed in infusions, in drinks and smoothies, or as a condiment, among other possibilities.

Get in contact with nature

People who live in natural environments have a great advantage over those who live in cities, as urban air pollution greatly harms lung health.

Since it’s difficult to change where we live overnight, however, it’s advisable to try to escape to remote places in the mountains or at the beach every now and then. This allows us to breathe cleaner air. We can also do exercise in these places to improve our lung work.

Try cayenne to break down mucus

Spices
Cayenne pepper has countless health benefits and can also help the body to break down mucus.

Cayenne pepper is a hot spice with many beneficial health properties. These include improving circulation, providing warmth, and helping to remove mucus. For this reason, it’s a good addition to the purification of the lungs and bronchi.

It’s best to start consuming it in small amounts – for example, with just a pinch added to daily meals. Over the days, you can increase the dose a little if the body doesn’t have adverse reactions to this spicy ingredient.

Have some Potus plants in your home

Having plants in your home can help to purify the air naturally.

Although we often live in the city, we can also make small changes to breathe cleaner air. A simple tip to achieve this is to put indoor plants that can help to purify the air of toxic substances in your home, as is the case of Potus.

Potus can even be placed even in the bedroom without any risk. This plant will eliminate the particles of formaldehyde, xylene, and benzene that accumulate in homes. These are toxins that, when we breathe them, can cause us many types of discomfort.

Another of the great advantages of this plant is that the Potus plant doesn’t require a lot of care. However, it’s important to bear in mind that it’s toxic for pets.

Learn to breathe consciously to do a lung and bronchial cleanse

It seems obvious, but it’s also necessary to learn to breathe properly. If we live in polluted environments and also breathe using only part of our lung capacity, our lungs will have a very limited function and end up atrophying.

For this reason, a great solution to purify the respiratory system well is to learn to breathe properly. In fact, this is about becoming aware of this vital act that most of us do without thinking and do so incorrectly.

Often, it’s only at specific times when we feel the need to breathe deeply. In general, we tend to breathe very discreetly. In addition, many situations generate anguish, fear, or anxiety, which further limits our breathing. For this reason, from time to time, it’s very important to take a deep, conscious breath.

In short, the purification of the lungs and bronchi is a gradual process, but one that will provide excellent results for our overall health. Moreover, it requires nothing more than a change of habits, commitment, and perseverance.
