How to detoxify lungs? When it gets effected by smoking. Please give some suggestion to detoxify my lung.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Perhaps it means that you are already afraid that you have damaged your lungs from years of smoking. The tobacco tar, which is the carcinogenic substance in tobacco smoke, lines your lungs with patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. The carbon monoxide in cigarette smoke affects the oxygen carrying capacity of the hemoglobin or red blood cells to make you gasp for breath. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Because smoking uses the respiratory system it gives you a faster kick. The lining of your throat is also affected and damaged over the years that you begin to experience the smokers’ cough. Obviously this tobacco tar is the cancer causing agent and that is horrible way to end your life. There are a host of other dangerous substances in tobacco smoke (in fact 7000 of them) that it is difficult to put the whole list here, and it is not enough to focus on only the effects to lungs. Because cigarette smoke is ingested through the respiratory system, it is the lungs which are directly affected. So you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. You need to now bring improvement to your lungs by doing a lot of aerobic exercise while breathing through your nostrils only. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health.

Virus In Your Body Can Cause Tonsillitis!

ENT Specialist, Noida
Virus In Your Body Can Cause Tonsillitis!

Tonsillitis is a disorder of the tonsils present on the back of your throat. The tonsils acts as a defensive mechanism in the body as they prevent the body from infections. This is a contagious condition and can occur at any age. It is widely prevalent among school going kids.

Tonsillitis may be classified into two types:

  1. Chronic tonsillitis: This type of tonsillitis tends to last for an extended duration with symptoms of bad breath and tenderness in the lymph nodes.
  2. Recurrent tonsillitis: This is a form of acute tonsillitis which repeats itself over a year.

Causes: Tonsils prevent various virus and bacteria from entering the body through the mouth by producing antibodies. The tonsils, however, may become vulnerable to these infections. A virus that causes common cold or the bacteria that causes strep throat may result in tonsillitis. The most common cause of this disorder is the strep bacteria. School going children are especially vulnerable to this disorder because they are most prone to various infections.

The various viruses that may cause tonsillitis are:

  1. Enterovirus
  2. Herpes simplex virus
  3. Epstein-Barr virus
  4. Influenza virus
  5. Adenovirus
  6. Parainfluenza virus

Common symptoms: 
The various symptoms of tonsillitis are

  1. Swallowing difficulties
  2. sore throat
  3. The sore throat may result in bad breath
  4. You may experience fever and chills
  5. Pain in the head, ear and stomach
  6. You may experience stiffness in the neck and the jaw
  7. Swollen tonsils with possible redness
  8. Changes in voice
  9. Symptoms of cold

Treatment: The treatment for tonsillitis is usually antibiotics and in some cases, tonsillectomy. The antibiotics help in getting rid of the bacterial infectionSurgery is only done in cases where tonsillitis is chronic in nature. It is important that you drink fluids and restrict smoking to prevent tonsillitis.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am suffering from sinus. What should I do? Is there any permanent solution for this.

Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, Take Schwabe’s Alpha-SH, Alpha-NH and Biocombination-05 - all of them thrice a day for 4 weeks. Use Bakson's Nasal-Aid spray/ 1-2 sprays after every 4 hours. Management: - Avoid cold drinks and fried food, take healthy food. -Avoid exposure to Air-conditioner or cold air. -Take steam-inhalation once before going to bed. -Take enough sleep and rest. Home-Remedies: -When turmeric is combined with spicy ginger root and brewed for hot tea, this combination can help loosen mucus from clogged nasal passages, alleviate sinus pressure, and make you feel better all around. -Two or three tablespoons of raw, unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar added to a cup of hot water or tea taken three times daily will help thin out excessive mucus relieving congestion an sinus pressure. Mix with lemon and honey to taste. - Vitamin C (available in form of chewables) helps the body to resist immune system deficiencies and improves overall health.
