Health experts say that more than 1 billion in the world are smokers and 5 million die or get cigarette linked diseases, as World Health Organization said. So, one person dies every 6 seconds!
Smokers and non smokers both have lung issues.
One thing is certain, the smokers have more damaged lungs than non smokers. First, stop that habit but until then cleanse the lungs. This recipe is effective and easy to do.
Experts found that people smokers longer than 5 years have more often bronchitis.
- 1 cup organic onions
- 2 teaspoon organic turmeric root powder
- 2 teaspoon organic ginger root powder
- 1/2 cup organic coconut sugar
- 1 liter filtered water
- In a big pot let the water get really hot (but not to a boil) and put the coconut sugar and stir until it melts.
- Add the rest of the ingredients.
- Lower the heat after 5 minutes.
- Stir for 5 more minutes and put in the refrigerator for storage after it cools down.
Drink before breakfast and at night, 2 hours after the meal. For even more effective result, do workouts too.
If you can, enjoy a nice bath only for 20 minutes. This way toxins get out of the body more easily, and incorporate some inhalers with eucalyptus too.
Lung Cleansing with Peppermint Oil
The expectorant action of peppermint oil can help clear symptoms of upper respiratory congestion that may stem from allergies, asthma, cold, flu, bronchitis, and the like. This allows for vapors to be almost directly inhaled through the nasal passages and cut through congestion.
You can use a diffuser to vaporize the essential oil.
Unlike prescription medications and even certain OTC therapies, peppermint essential oil is not associated with drowsiness or other common adverse side effects.
Research Shows Peppermint Can Benefit Lung Health and Respiratory Ailments
The Complementary and Traditional Medicine Unit in the Department of Family Medicine at Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Israel investigated the clinical effects of aromatic essential oils in patients with upper respiratory tract infections.
Working with 60 study participants, a spray solution of aromatic essential oils, including peppermint oil, was administered. It was concluded that the spray application brought immediate and significant improvement of upper respiratory ailment symptoms.
Research at Germany’s University of Ulm Department of Otorhinolaryngology conducted a study to determine the impact inhaling peppermint-sourced menthol has on nasal temperature and obstruction.
It should be noted that, although inhaling menthol produces a cooling sensation, researchers did not record any change in nasal temperature after inhalation of menthol. Menthol stimulates cold receptors and merely gives the feeling.
However, 16 of the 18 study participants reported improved nasal breathing after menthol inhalation.
