Our lungs are always taken for granted. But it serves as the first line of defence to fight against infection.
When it is working fine, we hardly notice that they are there. Only when something happens to it or becomes hard for us to breathe, we suddenly become aware of it.
We already know that outdoor air plays a major role in the health of your lungs. But the most common and dangerous substances are tar and nicotine. These are found mainly in cigarettes and second-hand smoke.
With repeated exposure, these poisons can accumulate in the body and build-up in the lungs, eventually turning them toxic completely.
Nicotine is a toxin that occurs in tobacco leaves and it causes an immediate and severe rise of blood pressure by constriction of the arteries.
Tar is a viscous compound that is found on the leaves of the tobacco plant. Tar coats the air sacs in the lungs, preventing them from functioning properly.
Tar and nicotine are directly responsible for COPD, emphysema and lung cancer.
If you have recently quit smoking or have moved into a less-polluted environment, then going for a lung cleanse is important.
The natural remedy that we have mentioned here is made out of natural ingredients.
- 1 litre of water
- 400 grams of onion
- 2 spoons of ginger and turmeric
- 400 grams of honey
Combine the water with the onion and bring it to a simmer. Add two spoons of grated ginger root and turmeric. Make sure to use fresh roots instead of the powdered ones.
Let this mixture simmer for ten minutes and then add the honey. Stir until it blends well. For a thicker mixture, you can stir it well until it reaches the desired consistency.
Take two spoons in the morning on an empty stomach and at night before bed.
