Over the last 2-3 decades, Lung Cancer and Lung Diseases are on an unprecedented level of increase. In my clinic I’m seeing a lot more Lung related conditions than ever before. In the United States alone, bowel cancer has usually been the #1 type of cancer, lately Lung Cancer is becoming more prevalent. I have done a lot of research over the last 20 years on this topic. The Lungs absorb everything we breathe in from our environment. Deeper Lung tissue (alveoli) are extremely vulnerable and sensitive to airborne toxins. Because the Lungs are very moist, everything we breathe in from the environment adheres to the sensitive lung tissues. I have been aware of atmospheric aerosol spraying (chemtrails), pollutants, chemicals, herbicides, and pesticides causing adverse lung conditions. Household cleaners, air purifier sprays, fabric softeners, first and second hand smoke, all contribute to Lung conditions. I am so concerned over the heavy use of chemtrails in our environment, I am going to dedicate an entire post on this topic. This is only a small example of some of the irritants. Depending on your lung condition, I’m going to suggest at least 4 types of home remedies for lung cleansing.
Proper daily hydration of at least 3-4 liters of purified water per day, is beneficial for lung function, and lung detox. There is no specific food diet for lung cleansing, however, all types of spicy food are beneficial for reducing lung mucus.
Essential Oils can be taken orally, or can be used in a portable misting device (humidifier). I recommend the handheld humidifier for the best results, these types of portable humidifiers come with a small water container built into them. You can add the following essential oils with purified water. Using a diffuser or handheld personal humidifier, with essential oils of eucalyptus, peppermint, rosemary, thyme, pine, and other oils, will help to cleanse the lungs of toxins and mucus. This procedure can be performed 2-3x per day, or as needed, as there are no harmful side effects. Please see review post on handheld personal humidifier and diffuser, as well as recommended oil products.
- Two drops of Eucalyptus Oil
- Two drops of Peppermint Oil
- Two drops of Rosemary Oil
- Two drops of Thyme Oil
- Two drops of Camphor Oil
- Two drops of Oregano Oil
- Two drops of Tea Tree Oil
Instructions For Using Handheld Personal Humidifier and Diffuser
Using the two products I have recommended in my Reviews post, is very simple and easy. Please use distilled water in the water chamber tank until it is full, and add essential oils dosages I outline in my Reviews post. I suggest using these two products for home and travel.
The handheld steam inhaler can be used 2-3x a day safely, which will automatically turn off after a preset duration. The diffuser can be used throughout the night, which is perfect for using in your bedroom while you sleep.
Lung Cleasing Soup
Watercress soup has been used for thousands of years by the Chinese to detoxify the lungs. This soup can be made quickly, and easily at home. I recommend making a small batch to be used instantly. If you refrigerate it, I have found it reduces its potency…fresh is best!
This Lung cleansing soup is extremely beneficial for people who have quit smoking, and are attempting to rejuvenate their lungs. This soup is also beneficial for chronic obstructive pulmonary conditions.

Lung Cleanse Tonic
I usually make this tonic in a 1-gallon glass bottle. It seems like a lot, but trust me, you can use it up very quickly. I use this tonic more in the winter & spring, due to atmospheric inversion, and springtime pollen. I recommend taking 1-2 ounces per day, first thing in the morning before food.
Ingredients for Lung Cleanse Tonic
- 8 cloves of Garlic
- 4 teaspoons Turmeric
- 4 ounces fresh organic Ginger Root
- 4 organic Jalapenos
- 1 large yellow Onion
- 3 quarts organic Apple Cider Vinegar
- 4 ounces of Vodka or Everclear
Instructions for Lung Cleanse Tonic
- In a blender or food processor, combine Garlic, Turmeric, Ginger Root, Jalapenos, and Onion with 1 quart of Apple Cider Vinegar and blend until vegetables are in small fine pieces.
- Pour all contents into 1 gallon glass bottle, and add remaining 2 quarts of Apple Cider Vinegar.
- Let sit in fridge for 30 days, while shaking / stirring daily.
- After 30 days, strain ingredients to separate liquid from pulp (save pulp if desired for cooking).
- Add 4 ounces of Vodka or Everclear as a preservative.
- Store at room temperature.
Lifestyles and stress contribute to poor breathing techniques. There are a multitude of beneficial breathing techniques which help to infuse the lungs with much-needed oxygen. I recommend doing a beneficial breathing technique first thing in the morning upon waking, to help infuse the lungs with oxygen. These techniques will also will put oxygen into the brain. Breathing techniques can be done throughout the day, in just about any type of situation, or at work. These techniques are not only beneficial for the lungs, but also help to reduce stress and fatigue.
Instructions for Breathing Technique
- In a laying position face up, place both hands on the lower abdomen lightly.
- Fully breathe in slowly through the nose, so you can feel your diaphragm drop down, and you will notice your hands will slightly move upward with the diaphragm. This is important for a complete, full breath.
- Hold for a count of 2 seconds, and slowly exhale out of your mouth, feeling your hands slightly drop into your abdomen as the diaphragm moves upward.
- Repeat the inhalation breath in the nose, again feeling your hands move upwards as your diaphragm drops.
- When you feel that you’ve fully inhaled, purposely do 3 or 4 quick small inhalations to fully fill up the upper lung fields.
- Hold for a count of 2 seconds, and slowly exhale. Again your hands will slightly drop into your abdomen, as your diaphragm moves upward.
- Continue repeating the breathing technique to your comfort level of approximately 5-10 minutes. This technique is very beneficial for infusing the lungs with oxygen, which in turn supplies oxygen to the vital organs, and the central nervous system.
- This technique can also be done in a sitting position, either at home or at work at a desk.
Conclusion for Breathing Technique
Almost every patient I’ve demonstrated this to, comments on slight light headiness. This is a good thing, as it indicates a rush of oxygen into the brain, and improves brain function on all levels. This includes enhanced awareness, clarity, focus, and energy.
