One issue that many COPD patients may be struggling with is a way to detox your lungs. The health care team at the Lung Health Institute may be able to help you find ways to detox your lungs that may also help you breathe easier™.
Three natural lung cleanses that may help you with lung detox
A lung cleanse may be defined as any procedure designed to detoxify and refresh your bronchial passages and lungs. These cleanses typically work toward these goals by helping you remove things such as environmental toxins, harmful bacteria and other irritants from your lungs. At LHI, our health care team recommends three natural cleanses that may help detox your lungs and improve your COPD symptoms.
One type of lung cleanse that may help you is daily deep breathing exercises. These breathing exercises include methods like huff coughing, pursed lip breathing and diaphragmatic breathing. Our LHI health care team knows that any of these breathing exercises may help you in several ways. For one thing, they’ll help you to provide high quantities of oxygenated blood to your body, and this higher blood oxygen level may help promote healing. Another benefit that deep breathing exercises may have for you is helping to reduce stress.
Another type of lung cleanse that you may want to consider is using essential oils. Our health care team at LHI is aware that some essential oils may help you detoxify your lungs. This is because essential oils such as peppermint, oregano and eucalyptus oils contain substances that may help your lungs remove harmful microbes. By helping to remove microbes such as viruses and bacteria, essential oils may also help to reduce the inflammation that these microbes may be causing in your lungs.
A third type of lung cleanse that our LHI health care team often recommends involves your diet. In fact, there are certain foods that you can add to your daily diet that may help to detoxify your lungs and reduce your COPD symptoms. Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, brussel sprouts and cauliflower, for instance, may help your body get more antioxidants. These antioxidants may, in turn, help your body to fight your lung tissue inflammation. Other antioxidant-rich foods you can add to your diet that may also help cleanse your lungs include organic honey and fresh ginger.
