The lungs are vital elimination
organs as they facilitate the exchange of carbon dioxide (a waste product of
the body's cells) and oxygen in the blood, which carries oxygen to the
cells to produce energy. Unfortunately, today's ever increasing pollution
problems are causing untold damage to not just our lungs but to our quality of
life and overall good health. |
When any of the first three detoxification areas (liver, kidney's, gallbladder) are clogged or closed down
with waste materials, the lymphatic and blood systems become
saturated with toxic poisons. When this occurs, acid and other waste materials become trapped
tissue and cells and begin the rotting/putrefaction process. The putrefaction
process exponentially increases toxicity levels (toxemia) potentially leading to many
degenerative health and rapid aging problems. Most begin life with a pair of bright and healthy pink lungs, but an adult
city dweller can eventually develop dull, pink-gray lungs complete with black
patches, indicating the negative effects of poor air quality with respect to respiratory
Lungs function by bringing in blood from two primary sources, pulmonary and
bronchial vessels (support respiratory tissue). Deoxygenated blood flows through
the pulmonary arteries to the lungs to be re-oxygenated and remove toxic waste gas
(carbon dioxide). Then pulmonary veins carry oxygenated blood to the heart then
through the arterial system to the entire body. This process plays a critical role since the lungs are the first detoxification organ to
come into contact with airborne toxins, chemicals, viruses, bacteria, and many other
foreign body irritants.
We should enhance our lungs ability to detoxify us by increasing the simple process of breathing.
It is important to note that smoking and breathing in toxins is not in the best interest
of health as it introduces large amounts of toxic chemicals into the body and damages the lungs.
Regular deep breathing of
clean air helps on two fronts. It keeps the lungs clear and remove damaging toxins from the body
For an effective cleansing of our lungs, we must learn to breathe the right way which is using
the diaphragm when breathing. This allows air to penetrate deeper into the lungs,
absorb more oxygen and release more carbon dioxide. This is done best by taking
long deep breaths to encourage the air to flow deep into our diaphragm where the belly
blots up slightly. Then hold for as long as comfortable before exhaling. Deep
breathing should become a regular habit, especially for those who don't
exercise. It is prudent to deep breath several times daily to encourage optimal
health and wellness. Deep
diaphragm breathing can be performed almost anywhere while releasing damaging
toxic gases and providing a wide range of positive health benefits.
It is best to practice deep breathing by avoiding areas of high air pollution. Areas around natural
water like lakes, rivers and oceans are likely to be less polluted than
industrial areas. Also areas where there are lots of natural greenery where
plants and trees provide more clean oxygen.
Lung Cleansing Foods:
It's important to avoid consuming fatty, highly refined foods with artificial additives
(chemical toxins) during

Lung, Cleansing Herbs:
Rosemary Leaf - An aromatic herb used to promote increased blood and
lymph flow while helping to reduce mucous production (congestion). Also acts as a
circulatory and nerve stimulant. It is considered one of the most powerful
natural remedies to strengthen the nervous system. This herb contains calcium
and vitamins A and C, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and zinc
all of which promote lung health.
Scutellaria (Root/Aerial Portion) - This herb is a powerful immune
booster, especially for the upper body. Traditionally used to help speed
recovery, relax nervous tension and renew the nervous system.
Bitter Melon Fruit - Used to help nourish the lungs. This herb is a natural
Honeysuckle Flowers - This herb has broad-spectrum immune system supporting
properties. Wonderful for nourishing the lungs and spleen. Honeysuckle's
cleansing properties are greatly enhanced when used in conjunction with
chrysanthemum flowers next.
Chrysanthemum Flowers - This herb has excellent immune system supporting properties. A
great herb for nourishing the lungs. Most effective when combined with Mulberry
White Mulberry Twig - Helps to strengthen the bronchial tubes.
Along with the herbs mentioned above, one should begin a cleansing diet at the
same time. Before starting a cleansing diet, one should consume ample amounts of
liquids (hydrate), distilled water, fresh fruits, vegetables and juices will help prepare the
body for an effective cleans.
- First - is a cleansing diet to eliminate all processed foods,
saturated fats, coffee, white sugar, high fructose corn syrup, alcohol, tobacco, and red meat.
- Second - add some cleansing herbs mentioned above either in single or combination
formulas made to cleanse the bodies systems.
Caution: Keep in mind that herbs are very powerful remedies and
can produce undesirable side effects.
There can also be herbal interactions with prescription drugs. If you're taking any drugs, be
sure to do thoroughly research or discuss this with your health care
professional before taking any herbal
It's wise to discontinue use of a product if you develop any negative side
excessively loose stools, or discomfort of any kind). If you develop nausea, vomiting,
diarrhea, cramping, joint pains, headache, rashes, irritation
or just plain don't feel good, you may be cleansing too quickly and your body is
not capable of dealing with excessive toxins in the blood adequately. Discontinue use if this occurs until
you feel better and then resume cleansing at a slower pace.
1. Quart jar (glass) with rubber seal lid (Mason is excellent)
2. Blender (any blender that blends fruits and vegetables will work - it's
more important to blend regularly than to have a designer blender)
3. Juicer (electric is best)
Drink at least 8 oz. of blended formula each day to start and increase up to 32-64 oz. (1 qt. or liter) each day for best results.
Lung Detoxification Program:|
The following are prudent steps to a successful lung cleansing
1. Cleanse your lungs with prudent respiratory exercises in combination
with a high water content diet filled with raw, fresh fruits and vegetables along
with a selection or combination of herbs listed above to clean out the lungs and
respiratory system. The herbs chosen will depend on the amount of lung dysfunction
and the length of time these problems has been present.
2. While cleansing the lungs and respiratory system, you should replenish the beneficial bacteria
to flora balance with a probiotic supplement, which in turn helps the immune system operate at maximum
3. Once the lungs and respiratory system are clean, a whole body
cleansing/detoxification maintenance program should be ongoing to maintain total
internal body cleanliness.

"Illness and disease are
optional, choose not to participate" ~ Dr. Skip Hellen
It’s important to understand that optimal health can only
be achieved and maintained when nutritional, physical, and mental requirements
are met resulting in systemic biological balance (homeostasis).
The following are the cornerstones of success with anything
in life, make these qualities an important part of your life strategy and you
will achieve excellence in anything you do.
character requires personal
commitment advances positive
tenacity promotes success
~ Dr. Skip Hellen
OPTIMAL HEALTH ACTION STEPS
1. (Develop) a strong sense of self respect and discipline
2. (Pledge) Take the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledge
3. (Test) Complete the health assessment test (establish a personal health baseline)
4. (Decide) Set a goal to achieve personal health excellence (optimal health)
5. (Education) Learn health principles how to achieve optimum health
6. (Heath Compass) Buy a pH litmus test kit, start testing frequently – keep a test result log
7. (Manage/Adjust) Change behavior habits for best results
8. (Commitment) Stay the course until achieving personal health excellence
9. (Mentor) Help another achieve personal health excellence
Since behavior habits and nutrition are critical components of human health and longevity,
denial, shortcuts and misguided beliefs can be very costly not only in terms of lost monetary
wealth but in compromised health leading to rapid aging, illness, disease and death.
DON’T TAKE YOUR HEALTH FOR GRANTED. IF YOU DON’T TAKE PROPER CARE OF YOUR
HEALTH, WHO WILL?
The important thing to remember is consumptive habits (foods) will form the foundation of
either optimal health or illness and disease. The old saying "you are what you eat" is absolutely
true when it comes to health.
Developing strong personal character (respect, belief, knowledge, discipline, commitment)
are the cornerstones of all personal excellence accomplishments.
Taking the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledges and adopting the behavior principles
solidifies a vital first step on the road to optimal health success. These pledge
commitments not only help develop the skills required to accomplish the goal but better define
the path to personal health excellence. The second step is purchasing a litmus test kit to
accurately monitor health progress. (see below for event test kit sale)
Perhaps the hardest part of achieving optimal health is changing
unhealthy behavior habits to
