Herbs For Cleaning Your Lungs
Your respiratory system is constantly working. All day, every day is the vehicle for oxygen to enter your body.
Unfortunately, it can also be a point of entry for contaminants, irritants, dust, mold, fungi, harmful organisms and other toxins.
Unless you’re living in a bubble, the constant assault of impurities can take its toll.
Fortunately, whether you experience the negative effects of inhaling toxins or
simply want to make sure your lungs are always at peak performance, nature has provided a series of herbs
and botanicals that provide deep nutrition for the respiratory system.
It contains vitamins and nutrients that stimulate the immune system, the main benefit of oregano lies in its decongestant capacity.
The contents of Carvacrol and rosmarinic acid are high, and both are histamine reducers that have direct benefits in the airflow of their nasal passage and in the respiratory tract.
The flowering plant has long been used as an herbal remedy for respiratory diseases, such as asthma, pneumonia and tuberculosis.
The Austrians traditionally drank it as tea or added it to ointments and baths for external use.
Nowadays, extracts are often derived from their flowers and leaves to create medicinal herbs.
But you can still use mullein in more practical ways to cleanse your lungs.
As the name implies, this herb is effective for the lungs and its use to promote better lung health dates back to the 16th century.
It helps clear up congestion and improve the health of the lungs in general.
It can also help reduce diseases that affect the lungs because they contain compounds that have the ability to fight foreign invaders
that can lead to lung conditions, such as an infection of the upper respiratory tract.
The Greeks, the Romans, the Chinese and even Indian Ayurvedic medicine have cited elecampane as a respiratory support and,
since the 19th century, cough lozenges and pills have been produced from the root of elecampane.
The reason? Elecampane has a relaxing effect on the smooth tracheal muscles.
There are two active compounds in the root of elecampane that provide the beneficial effect:
inulin, which relieves the bronchial passage, and alantolactone, an expectorant with antitussive action.
Used in Appalachian folk medicine, lobelia is known as one of the most valuable herbal remedies.
The extracts contain lobeline, an alkaloid that helps fight drug-resistant tumor cells,
loosen phlegm and stimulate the production of epinephrine, which when combined relaxes the airways and allows you to breathe easily.
