Foods to eat & foods to avoid for lungs burdened by smoke & fire

Your lungs and sinuses like to be cool & moist.  Smoke & fires tend to cause them to become dry and hot.  Often people experience increased mucous as the lungs work hard to clear particulates.  This results in coughing, wheezing & congestion.  What you eat & drink plays a big part in supporting your lungs & sinuses.
  • AVOID: Spicy & fried foods, alcohol, excessive dairy
  • INCREASE: Simple, whole foods
  • ENJOY: Pears, cucumbers, coconut, lime, apples, grapefruit, pumpkin, sunflower and flax seeds

Hydration is more than drinking water

Hydration not only occurs from what you drink but from the air around you.  When your dehydrated your body seeks moisture through your nasal passages.
  • AVOID: Alcohol, soda and sugary beverages
  • OUT THE GATE: Begin each morning with a large glass of lemon water
  • STEAM: Hot showers to inhale steam
  • 50:100 RULE: For every 1 cup of a caffeinated beverage you drink double your water intake
  • NASAL PASSAGES: A solution of salt and water to gently mist into the nose keeps the osmotic hydration balance so your body doesn’t need to absorb moisture droplets from the air. Use 1-2 sprays in each nostril every 2-3 hours a day.
  • HYDRATION CHECK: Is your urine clear?  Are you peeing often?  Are your lips moist? Then your hydrated!

An essential oil is a concentrated, volatile, aromatic liquid that is obtained from the fruits, seeds, flowers, bark, stems, roots, leaves or other parts of a plant. There are over 10,000 substances with essential oils on Earth.  These oils have been used for centuries for both their healing and aromatic benefits.
  • DIFFUSE: Essential oils are placed in this device, usually with water (be sure to read the directions), and sometimes with heat so they evaporate. This is a good way to add the scent of an essential oil to a room. Never be directly burn an essential oil as it changes the chemical structure.
  • STEAM: Add a few drops of essential oil to a bowl of steaming water.  Place a towel over your head and over the bowl of water with essential oil drop(s) and breathe deeply. Use 1-2 drops of oil as this method is potent. Avoid eye irritation by keeping them closed.
