      How do you naturally cleanse your lungs?

      There are various things that can affect the lungs such as cigarette smoke, air pollution and chronic diseases of the respiratory system such as Asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and cystic fibrosis. Here’s how you can naturally cleanse your lungs.

      Steam therapy

      Steam therapy is a good method to clear the airways, it also helps to drain mucus. Steam also brings warmth and moisture to the air which helps to improve breathing.

      Yoga

      Certain yoga poses are great for clearing the lungs. Bridge, Cobra, Wheel, and Upward-Facing Dog are asanas that open out and stretch the chest besides stimulating the lungs. They can even help asthmatics.

      Green tea

      Green tea has many benefits for the body and is rich in antioxidants that which reduces the inflammation in the lungs. It also helps in protecting the lungs from the ill-effects of smoking.

      Chest percussion

      This is a method used to clear mucus. It involves a healthcare professional or respiratory therapist rhythmically tapping the chest with a cupped hand which helps remove mucus in the lungs.

      Controlled coughing

      This method is quite effective to clear mucus in the lungs and it’s recommended by doctors for those with COPD. To do this correctly, sit down on a chair with the shoulders relaxed and place both feet flat on the ground. Gently fold your arms around your stomach and inhale slowly through the nose. Next, lean forward and slowly exhale while pushing the arms against the stomach. Cough twice or thrice while exhaling while keeping the mouth slightly open. Next, slowly inhale through the nose and repeat as needed.

      Exercise

      Exercise is really good for the lungs. This also forces the muscles to work harder which increases the body's breathing rate pushing up the supply of oxygen to the muscles.

      anti-inflammatory foods

      When the airways are inflamed, this can make it difficult to breathe and the chest is likely to feel heavy and congested. Consume anti-inflammatory foods such as cherries, olives, walnut, beans, lentils, leafy greens, turmeric and so on to help relieve this.
