Love for your lungs

Tuesday, July 28, 2020
Your lungs are susceptible to damage from things like ills and chills, cigarette smoke, air pollution and allergens, including dust and pollen.  In Traditional Chinese Practice (TCP), your lungs are seen as a key part of defensive qi, helping to prevent nasties from getting into your system and helping to remove waste. 

Your lungs allow fresh oxygen into your body and remove carbon dioxide and other waste gases. At the end of your lungs’ smallest airways are the bronchioles; these are tiny air sacs - like small balloons - called alveoli. Alveoli allow oxygen to enter your bloodstream and waste gases from your bloodstream are 'exchanged' and breathed out.

Lung Qi

In TCP, healthy lung qi helps to ensure a defence against external pathogens, whereas a deficiency in lung qi might produce frequent ills and chills or symptoms that, to a Western way of thinking, might seem unrelated to your lungs, such as dry or troubled skin or breakouts. 

Lung qi is strengthened by avoiding things like smoking, wearing protective equipment in industries that require it, regular physical exercise and breathing exercises, to name a few. Traditionally, white foods such as cauliflower or almonds, leafy greens and warm drinks might also be recommended, along with key herbs to support respiratory health and easy breathing without feeling congested.
