The lung detox system begins with the size, shape and location of our lungs, which is cone-shaped and found inside the thoracic cavity. It is attached to the heart as well as other organs and our ribs offer it its needed protection.
Our body has two lungs. The right lung is quite bigger in regard to thickness and width than the left lung; this is in order to give room to our heart. But it is also smaller in length than the left lung so as to provide enough space for the liver beneath.
Our lungs work by making blood available from two sources, namely: the pulmonary vessels (which support non-respiratory tissue) and bronchial vessels (which support respiratory tissue).
De-oxygenated blood is carried through the pulmonary arteries to the lung where it is re-oxygenated and carbon dioxide with other toxic wastes removed. From here it is taken to the heart through the pulmonary veins which take the same oxygenated blood to the arterial system.
The lung plays a vital role since detoxification begins here. Consequently, the lung is the first organ of the body to come in touch with viruses, allergens, bacteria, chemicals, toxins. This is why taking in enough air which aids detoxification should be encouraged.
Deep relax breathing, a simple exercise which aids this process that results in lung cleanse is not common among most people. Oftentimes, what we do is take in breaths of air that are short and just sufficient enough to make us stay alive.
However, for an effective lung cleanse, we need to know the proper way to do it, which involves using our diaphragm when we breathe. This makes air penetrate deeper into our lungs which makes us go into a longer breathing process.
Taking long deep breaths allows air to come into our diaphragm, making our belly blot up slightly. This should be done with us holding our breath for about two minutes, and then releasing it thereafter. By doing this simple process, we are making available a more intense cleansing breath for our lungs. This should be practiced often throughout the day to clean our lungs. And it must be done in places where you have little or no pollution.
It will be unwise to do this in an industrial area or when in heavy traffic because you will only breathe in polluted air that is not good for the body. Places where it is advisable to do this are environments where you have trees, plants or a lot of greenery which provide you the much needed oxygen in abundant quantity.
