Respiratory System Support
Breathing. Most of us don't give it a second thought. However, our respiratory system is crucial to life, carrying life-sustaining oxygen into our bodies while exhaling carbon dioxide.
The respiratory system includes our nasal and sinuspassages, windpipe and lungs. For our lungs to function at their peak, all systems must be clear. But ask an allergy or asthma sufferer, someone with chronic rhinitis or sinus congestion, bronchitis or COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), and the word 'clear' is not how they would describe their breathing.
There are many natural, herbal products that have been used in traditional medicine that provide respiratory support, such as turmeric, borage oil, ashwagandha, medicinal mushrooms, and even a cleansing steam with eucalyptus oil scented hot water. Vitamins such as D3 and minerals such as magnesium, zinc and selenium may help play a role in respiratory and general immune system support. Nasal irrigation products like neti pots and nasal sprays can also keep upper respiratory systems clear.
Traditional Chinese Medicine offers many natural, herbal tonics that have been used traditionally to tonify and strengthen the lungs and immune system. Learn all about TCM for Lung Health, and become an expert!
