Here are some natural approaches to treating lower respiratory disease
First you should look at your diet. Nutrition, nature's health insurance, must be a priority for anyone wanting to treat their ailments and heal properly. A diet low in fruits and vegetables and high in red meat and prepackaged foods is linked to lung weakness.
Ginger, cabbage, radish, seaweed, watercress, garlic, onions, and leeks, in contrast, help with bronchitis. Make sure to cut out items that will worsen your respiratory condition. Alcohol, sugars, fruit juice, and dairy products should be avoided.
Another good approach is to steam with essential oils. Many essential oils have strong antiviral and antibiotic properties.
- Eucalyptus essential oil: Effective decongestant effect. Good for steaming or adding to a sauna or bath.
- Basil essential oil: Useful as an antispasmodic and for chest infections.
- Thyme essential oil: Strengthens body's resistance to infections and useful for respiratory infections.
