Herbs for Lung Health and Clear Breathing

Herbs for Lungs, Sinus, and Respiratory Tract

Prana, the vital life force, is essential for sustaining life, and our respiratory system plays a crucial role in delivering this prana to every cell in our body. When sinus problems arise, they can disrupt this flow of prana and affect our overall well-being.

The respiratory system consists of the airway, lungs, and respiratory muscles, with the nasal cavities and sinuses forming the upper respiratory tract. Healthy sinuses are vital for proper respiratory function, and issues like congestion and sinus pressure can signal an imbalance in this system.

Thankfully, nature provides us with herbs and supplements that support lung health and provide relief for sinus-related issues.

Herbal Supplements for Lung Health

Ayurveda offers a range of supplements and herbs tailored to promote optimal lung function and alleviate sinus discomfort:

  1. Lung Formula: A blend of soothing and warming herbs designed to expel excess kapha from the system, clearing the lungs and chest for easier breathing.

  2. Licorice Root: Known for its ability to soothe and tone mucous membranes, licorice root also helps liquefy mucus for easier elimination.

  3. Pippali: With warming qualities, pippali supports healthy circulation, particularly in the lungs.

  4. Vasaka: This bitter and astringent herb promotes bronchodilation, aiding in the removal of excess pitta and kapha from the respiratory tract.

  5. Tulsi: A lung-supportive herb that also offers calming properties, beneficial for mood and stress levels.

  6. Sitopaladi: A traditional Ayurvedic formula for lung cleansing, it removes excess vata, pitta, and kapha from the head and chest.

  8. Nasya Oil: Recommended for daily sinus health maintenance, it supports clear breathing and a calm mind.

  1. Pranayama: Breathing exercises help oxygenate the body, tone respiratory muscles, and increase lung capacity.

  2. Exercise: Aerobic exercise strengthens the lungs, heart, and respiratory system, encouraging deep breathing.

  3. Drinking Lung-Supportive Tea: Herbal teas like Tulsi Fields tea nourish and soothe the respiratory tract, promoting relaxation and deep breathing.
