Is there any way by which tar can be removed from our lungs of a person who smokes?

MBBS

After you quit smoking body starts healing on its own and so does your lungs. After 15 years of not smoking your chances of lung cancer and smoke induced illnesses reduce to less than half of that of a smoker.

Pulmonary Function Tests
Pulmonary function tests (PFT’s) are breathing
tests to find out how well you move air in and
out of your lungs

Lung function tests can be used to:
■ Compare your lung function with known
standards that show how well your lungs should
be working.
■ Measure the effect of chronic diseases like
asthma, chronic obstructive lung disease
(COPD), or cystic fibrosis on lung function.
■ Identify early changes in lung function that
might show a need for a change in treatment.
■ Detect narrowing in the airways.
■ Decide if a medicine (such as a bronchodilator)
could be helpful to use.
■ Show whether exposure to substances in your
home or workplace have harmed your lungs.
■ Determine your ability to tolerate surgery and
medical procedures

What is spirometry?
Spirometry is one of the most commonly ordered
lung function tests. The spirometer measures
how much air you can breathe into your lungs
and how much air you can quickly blow out of
your lungs. This test is done by having you take
in a deep breath and then, as fast as you can,
blow out all of the air. You will be blowing into a
tube connected to a machine (spirometer).
The spirometry test is often repeated after
giving you a breathing medicine (bronchodilator)
to find out how much better you might breathe
with this type of medicine. You will be asked
to repeat this test two or three times to get an
accurate measure of your lung function. It can
take practice to be able to do spirometry well.
The staff person will work with you to learn how
to do the test correctly.
It usually takes 30 minutes to complete this test

What should I know before taking
this test?
■ You may be asked not to take your breathing
medicines before this test.
■ Instructions will be given on how to do this
test. If you do not understand them, ask the
technician to repeat them.
■ It takes effort to do this test and you may
become tired. This is expected.
■ If you become light-headed or dizzy during
this test, immediately stop blowing and let the
technician know

Am 21 yrs old female weight: 46 height: 5.2. I have tb disease since 1 month 15 days. Doctor said that the complete course is 6-9 months. Now, iam using 10 tablets a day. I wanna know that is there any another way to cure my disease in a short time period.

DAA, DNB
Pulmonologist, Bangalore
Hi. I can understand your concern. Any organ can involve with tb. Pulmonary tb usually presents with chronic cough more than 2 weeks duration, loss of appetite, loss of weight, evening fever. If you are having pulmonary tb and have not taken treatment for tb before, then you will require 6 months of anti-tb medicines. Along with that you will require nutritional supplements. If taken regularly your tb will be cured. This is the best and only way to treat tb. Don't worry, you will be alright. Hope I have solved your query. Wish you good health. Thanks.

Either you do not tolerate the kind of oil you consume change to a different oil. Oil may be contaminated. Go for quality and observe. Temporarily avoiding oil alltogether to confirm it is oil related will be good.

Avoid cold, sour, spicy and fried food. Avoid cool air, smoke and dust. Do pranayam for 30min daily. Keep your digestion fit and avoid constipation and hyper acidity conditions. Boost your immunity, start with ayurvedic immunoboosters. According to my experience ayurveda treatment for at least three months can treat your problem completely.
