Breath is the life force for all living beings and feeling cut off from it is one of the worst helpless feeling ever. Yet many people, especially smokers, put up with persistent cough and shortness of breath not knowing that their lungs are ailing from emphysema, which is only going to get progressively worse, unless they take corrective action. Some people wrongly attribute their troubled breathing to stress, aging or some other factor, and postpone meeting the Doctor. If you have taken the wise step of approaching a doctor to get emphysema diagnosed, you have opened yourself to opportunities to treat it and lead a healthier life.
Doctors point smoking as the most common root cause of emphysema. If you are a smoker, we aren’t judging you; but many do regret after being addicted to it. Once emphysema has seized their once pink and flexible lungs, even a short walk makes them feel exhausted. They find it embarrassing when their raucous coughing and wheezing disturbs those near them. They unwillingly give up their favorite foods or desserts at parties, fearing it might worsen their condition. They’re constantly scared that their loved ones might catch their infection. It’s certainly tough to live your whole life that way.
There’s no rocket science involved in determining that you need to cleanse your lungs for them to function normally. This article will show you how you can do that and fortify your system such that nothing comes in the way of you breathing easy again.
The first step towards taking control of your symptoms is to stop smoking. From our experience with patients who smoke, we agree that it’s easier prescribed than done. A smoker, no matter how strong-willed, always promises himself that the one small cigarette in his hand is going to be his last one; after all, doesn’t he deserve one last time since he’s going to begin some therapy soon? Unfortunately, that’s a trap set up by the mind to keep postponing the idea of giving up smoking. Our subconscious mind is afraid of any big changes, even if for our betterment and want to keep us stuck in the same rut, no matter how self-destroying. This is the same reason why many lose the fight against their own addictions. Their subconscious keeps them in the dark, afraid of light, afraid of how powerful we are to take charge of our lives. When an old habit dies, a lot of negativity dies along with it, which is precisely what the darker powers residing inside us don’t want.
Fortunately, there are remedies that help quit smoking and combat the effects of long term smoking. Look for Freedom Kit with Smokease 30 that is sold by Biogetica, and you might find it to be your best friend throughout your struggle against smoking.
So once you feel supported by these supplements, start some breathing exercises or pranayama. There are many easy-to-follow videos available online, but if you are a novice we would suggest you to practice them under the guidance of a teacher. True, that will take some extra effort, but it would be worth it. They are recommended to improve the strength of your lungs and their capacity to intake more oxygen. With regular practice and combined with Biogetica’s supplements, you will start experiencing noticeable improvement in less than two months*.
Apart from this, there are some other herbs that are suggested to emphysema patients depending on their symptoms. The herbs include:
- Ginger, mullein, thyme, Borage (or Starflower) and cysteine – they are natural mucolytic and expectorant.
- Thyme, mullein, elderflower, tyrosine and phenylalanine derived from natural sources – they work on broncodilation and ease breathing mechanism.
- Rosemary, thyme, turmeric, propolis and copper – they are natural antibotics for bacterial infections.
- Echinacea, turmeric, propolis, ganodermalucidum, thyme and rosemary – they are good for immune-modulation
- Calendula, zinc and beta-carotene – they work on rejuvenation and restoring respiratory epithelium
You might find this list overwhelming, and perhaps you don’t have the time to shop for each ingredient and make a formulation. In that case, you might want to check out Biogetica’s Freedom Respiratory Support Kit. You will find that a lot of the research and hard work has already been done for you, and these pure and potent herbs are actually available in ready-to-use kits.
If you have very mild symptoms and want to try something simple, make licorice tea infused with any ingredient of your choice from rosemary, clove, pepper, basil, thyme. You might even want to try ginger and garlic with honey to help you manage coughing.
Anveucus elder flower and clove are highly recommended to detoxify the system. In fact, recent researches reveal that clove can clean some of the oldest nicotine and tar debris from the lungs. You can make a mouth freshener by mixing coarsely ground cloves, dried ginger, fennel seeds, cardamom, nutmeg, black cumin and crystal sugar. Pack this in a small box and carry it with you wherever you go. Whenever you feel like having a smoke, put a spoonful of this mouth freshener in your mouth and try to delay the urge to smoke. This simple trick can be effective in managing your temptations to smoke.
Of course, these ingredients might not be available in your region. Luckily, there’s a homeopathic alternative. Anti-Smoking Remedy 30 is traditionally believed to help your body to recreate the endorphins created by smoking, thereby, helping you overcome cravings and symptoms.
We also highly recommend Biogetica’s supplements Aerovent, Aerosolve, CB9 200 to help you re-balance your constitution and negate the effects of smoking. You’d be smart if you chose these natural supplements; after all healing yourself is more empowering than riskier and costlier options such as lung transplant.
