Detoxing your lungs the Natural Way
The functions of the lungs
The purpose of our lungs is to take in oxygen. As we inhale our lungs takes in this oxygen which is carried by the blood to cells that are in our bodies if our lungs cannot carry out its functions the rest of our organs will not function properly which will cause a breakdown and that spells bad news. While this post is not on the anatomy of the lungs we will be discussing ways in keeping our lungs healthy and strong.
Maintaining a healthy lung in this day and time is a challenge because there are factors which we can’t control. The environment, as well as our homes, are filled with toxins and pollution.
This is a growing concern that has been going on for many years and what is even more disturbing is there seems to be an increase of pollution so the question is how can we counter-attack to keep our lungs healthy and strong?
Strengthening your heart and lowering your cholesterol
The health industry is bombarded by many persons that are having issues with their health and the scary part is these issues are growing at an alarming rate. Both public an private hospitals in many cases having staff work overtime to meet this ever-growing demand.
While it is true we need these medical professionals the number of patients that pays a visit to the doctor’s office can be far less if only we would obey the laws of good health but sad to say many had rather indulge in self-gratification by eating and drinking that which is not good for their health than to exercise self-control when it comes to poor dieting.
Many years ago I read a statement that says” with our fork and knives we dig our graves” sad to say but I must agree. Many are dying at a young age because of putting the wrong things in their bodies.
It’s like putting diesel in an automobile that requires gasoline or putting coolant in the engine when it should go in the radiator. It all comes down to knowledge and educating ourselves of what is good, not so good and that which is really detrimental to our health.

Affording the best on a low budget
We’re living in a day and time where many persons are becoming health conscious. At every turn, it seems as if there is a call to change our lives by making decisions that will promote our health.
The airwaves, books, magazines, newspapers and other sources are sounding the alarm to take control of our health for longevity. Health stores are popping up everywhere, Food stores, pharmacies and many others are stocking their shelves with products that promise to have us looking and feeling years younger.
Many are hitting the gym, joining workout groups and so on from every age and gender, also there are programs that are creating workout systems that promise to help us get in the best shape ever. While all of this may be good for promoting one’s health there is a concern of affording a healthy lifestyle.
I have visited Food and health stores an have been blown away by their high prices. Living healthy is costly and for many, living a healthy life same to be impossible or is it.
The building blocks for healthy living
There is a saying that “we are what we eat ” which is so true. A statement that I have also used a few times in many of my posts, is a statement that I read many years ago which says, “with our forks and knives we dig our graves”.
Many health-related issues can be traced back to poor dieting. What we consume can work against us causing much harm. It’ is sad to see that so many adults are living unhealthy lives and what makes it worse is they are teaching their children to do the same by being a poor example.
The importance of a healthy diet
Notice what I said, the importance of a healthy diet. Not just any diet but the right diet will have our children healthy. The primary school that my children attended many years ago made it clear that no junk food was to be given to any of the children only healthy foods such as fruits and other healthy snacks.
Obesity in children has grown and is continuing to grow at an alarming rate which is so scary. Many kids are facing all sorts of health-related issues such as high cholesterol, diabetes, heart problems, trouble breathing etc…
It is a fact that children with poor diets are more likely to develop many of these long-term health issues that can affect them in a great way.
