Just like many people today, are you also worried about getting sick or having cold or flu because you don’t want to be mistaken for having infected with COVID-19? Then the best thing you can do is to protect and take care of your lung. Aside from strengthening your immune system, it is crucial for you to make extra effort to improve your lung’s health so that you don’t get mucus or cough and other respiratory issues. You can do this naturally or without using any chemicals by preventing and eliminating toxins and by detoxing your lung using various techniques to be provided through links in this article.

The reason why we will provide you with links is because this process takes a lot of effort and we want you to have the best and most extensive information available from the internet for you to be able to do it effectively. However, before we will give you the links, we will first provide some few tips here for you to start with. First, it is important for you to learn how to prevent or lessen the toxins from hurting or affecting your lung. Some of the best effective ways to do it is to eat foods that are not only healthy for your lungs but also to your immune system in general. Examples of these are foods that are rich with antioxidants such as vegetables and fruits containing high vitamin C (citruses, apple, pumpkin, apricots, broccoli, lemons, etc.). Foods that are high in omega-3 fatty acids are also helpful. 

Another thing you can do is to have a regular exercise as it helps your lungs function well through enabling it to work and efficiently clean itself. You can learn different breathing exercises (part of the info that we will be providing below) as this is also very essential for your respiratory health. You must also avoid or lessen (if it’s impossible to totally avoid) your exposure to harmful chemicals and other substances such as cigarettes, hard liquor, synthetic fragrances, and most especially avoid places which have so much smog and other air pollution. Another way is to have enough rest or sleep. Remember that your lung is one of the most vital parts for your overall health. 

Pollutions and other toxins cause lung congestion and attract pathogens and harmful microbes through mucus. This is why illness like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a lung disease that causes obstruction of lung airflow, including with bronchitis and emphysema, develops. To avoid or prevent this and other types of lung problems, it is important to always clear the lungs of mucus and to remove irritants that cause chest congestion. So without further ado, here are great articles that would deepen your knowledge and provide you with complete details on how to naturally protect and take care of your lung:
