Lung Health

Lung Support Protocol:

We often take breathing for granted. We do it thousands of times a day without even thinking about it. But, when the lungs aren’t working optimally, this moment to moment function becomes a source of stress. Our lung health protocol uses herbs and nutrients to support optimal lung function along with nutrients to reduce overall inflammation.

Following an anti-inflammatory diet will also help lung function:

  • Avoid all processed foods, especially sugars and simple starches. Sugar creates inflammation and suppresses the immune system.
  • Avoid grains of all kinds (wheat, rye, spelt, corn, and rice). Grains can cause inflammation.
  • Eat plenty of healthful fats, including: butter, coconut oil, olive oil, avocados, walnut oil, flaxseed oil, fish oil, etc. Avoid all hydrogenated fats and processed oils like: Crisco, margarine, soybean oil, cottonseed oil, corn oil, “salad” oil, etc. Avoid eating fried foods in restaurants as these are mostly prepared using low quality oils that are highly inflammatory.
  • Eat quality protein like wild seafood, pastured meats, wild game, pastured eggs, organic poultry, etc. Quality counts!
  • Eat plenty of vegetables! Healthy vegetables include: leafy greens, asparagus, broccoli, cucumbers, artichokes, green beans, carrots, lettuce, cabbage, etc.
  • Avoid the nightshade vegetables as these can be very inflammatory: tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, peppers
  • Eat low sugar fruits like apples and berries.
  • Dairy, especially pasteurized dairy, can be very inflammatory. Consider going dairy-free (except for butter). Healthy dairy-free milks include: almond, hemp and coconut milks.
  • Eat nuts and seeds, but avoid peanuts.
  • Avoid soy in all its forms
  • Drink plenty of pure, clean water. Being fully hydrated will keep the lungs moist and make breathing easier.
