7 Foods to Detox the Lungs


The lungs are a vital organ to the overall health of one’s body. Oxygen is the main element which helps to detoxify the entire body. If the lungs are not fully cleansed and functioning at 100%, then the amount of oxygen that the body takes in will not be enough to keep the body strong and healthy. Once a person cleanses the lungs, then the entire body will experience an increased immunity and build a protective shield against the negative elements and toxins all around.

Spicy Foods – Mexican Dishes

Spicy foods are well known in helping to eliminate colds and coughs, which always seem to spread out to the lungs. Eliminating toxins from the lungs can be as simple as eating spicy foods every other day for a few weeks. Include red and black pepper in the foods you make as well. You can also make other spicy foods like chili, tarragon chicken, or even add other spices such as turmeric, which is a well known spice that is used to detox the body.


Garlic has been used for ages to help cleanse the entire body of all types of bacteria and is very effective. Making garlic tea mixed with honey and lemon on a daily basis will help you get it down as garlic can be very potent. You can also find garlic supplements at the nutrition store. Garlic is used against infections such as the cold and flu.

Pistachios – Vitamin E

Pistachios are a great source of Vitamin E and may even help protect against certain lung cancers. Nuts of any kind are healthy and do not promote weight gain despite the high fat content. The body needs this healthy fat content anyhow.


Ginger is a great spice and herb that can be found in many herbal teas, or can be added to your daily juicing regime. It’s also great for digestive issues and physical pain on top of increasing the body’s overall immunity.

Licorice Root

Licorice Root is another herb that is found in many herbal detoxes and teas because of the great benefits it provides. You don’t have to worry about the pungent taste when drinking it in tea form or taking supplements. If you like the taste of licorice root, then you can consume it in any form and reap the benefits.

Cruciferous Vegetables

Green vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, and kale can help to cleanse the lungs. Any vegetable has very high contents of both vitamins and minerals of many types which help to increase the immune system function.

Lemons and Limes

Lemons and limes may feel acidic going down, but overall they actually increase the PH levels in the body. This alkalizing effect brings strength to the body and helps to detox every organ, including the lungs. A higher PH level also pushes the flow of lymph which helps to cleanse the blood. An overall detoxifying effect takes place when drinking healthy mineral water and adding a few squeezes of lemon and lime.

    Have studied nutrition over 50 years have not been sick since , Thank God along with wise Doctors who follow Hippocrates as Dr. Otto Warburg & Joel Wallach This website just recently found appears the most comprehensive in understanding big picture! Understanding seeds full of life, will now incorporate avocado much more thank-you Natural News ,personally have appreciated Mercola yet Otto shows benefit of steam distilled water , Dr. Emoto’s work with water very informative ( PS water for gas is easy to verify unfortunately the gas industry may frown upon losing customers ,already in Columbia they sell motorcycles that run solely on water ,increasing the amperage here in America reveals large trucks running solely on water at 60 miles an hour with fuel conversion to spare) though Doctors common condemn distilled water for pulling out minerals what should be examined in urine is these minerals are non bioavailable and don’t belong for they clog the system. Now if one has access to Glacier melted water how wonderful, or the known places on earth where people attribute their centurion health to ….energized mineral water, one people for example Himalayan…
    Now steam distilled water is very dead thus incorporate 528 frequency easy to find , Thanks to Dr. Len Horowitz had privilege to converse with exclusively on several occasions very enriching. Thus water for food is achievable… usually best in fasting situations! Oxygen for inspiration, (Barbados densos aloe Vera highest amount of Oxygen found in any plant),element 8 = Rebirth and Resurrection in Hebrew language thus inspiration , {Jesus in Greek =888 such a beautiful story for another time but for Absolute confirmation see The Ultimate Assertion by Vernon Jenkins download for free guarantee infinitely more interesting then this mear comment! } While food is usually broken down for it’s hydrogen content (energy) ….It is propagated by sciencetist that the vast majority of the universe is now comprised of Hydrogen Element 1 yet they say they really don’t understand it comprehensively hmm the real problem is the spin is wrong as Einstein wrote the true value of a human being is determined primarily by the extent and measure in which he has attained liberation from SELF. paraphrased [ we are caught mentally, willfully, emotionally somewhat spiritually in a black hole of self relating] as the statement There are NO Absolutes ! In itself darkened psychology taken from Genesis 3:1 to divert to self reasoning deciding for oneself what is good and evil.
    No Absolutes is self deception being in itself an Absolute statement …blaming something or someone else is immaturity the cyclical History of civilizations* repetition! Of course maturity begins with accountability in thought word and deed , ultimately speaking our response to His His ability, or how can we understand Hydrogen or anything without truth which changes NOT !
    It would appear the thought/word/deed/ matter/energy/ galaxies revolves around a center ???? If this is True then one may extrapolate that ALL Things are related as they correspond to the CENTER of ALL centers? There is such enormous amount already known about Hydrogen, but not taught in schools thus will not uncover the simplicity of Hydrogen or little of anything else we think we understand…. again concerning hydrogen see Tesla and Walter Russell for a beautiful summation and far clearer understanding .Len’s website is tetrahedron as in molecular structure of water how fascinating as structure of infinite snowflakes magnified .Ray Anderson wrote “Never Be Sick Again” Brilliant book but like other books could be distilled from Otto Warburg’s extensive writings all on line for exam basically only ONE DIS/EASE Cellular Malfunction think it was Milton Green who said there are no incurable diseases just incurable ignorance! 1 disease 2 causes Ray points out 6 pathways can personally think of one more. Concerning 2 causes 1) Deficiency… Too little of something Vital. 2) Toxicity ….Too much of something harmful This balance appears to coincide with Solomon’s statement ONLY by Pride comes contention but with the Well Advised Wisdom It is written Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the SIN (singular,as Selfish Independent Negation)
    Thus Gene 3:1 again Questioning the Goodness of God! Has God Said ? You shall not eat (how interesting originally only one taboo you can touch, examine, investigate, meditate,concerning The Tree of Knowledge
    (Independent, as obtained by grasping for oneself) but not eat it’s fruit (assimilate) into your being, ( the mysterious 5… I Will’s starting at Isaiah fourteen: fourteen and Ezekiel twenty eight: fourteen… Thus SIN is written missing the mark, what is the mark
    Psalms 37:37 ReMarkable Gene1:26 vessels
    Made honorable through Character Development to Radiantly display His Wisdom and Honor and Glory and Power from communion, cooperation partnership, Intimacy into his mind will and Purpose ever expanding unfolding into infinite dimensions surly this does not but scratch the surface of what awaits those who overcome Deficiency and Toxicity remember Eve was not well informed by Adam since she was yet to be surgically removed from floating rib being the only bone in body that can regenerate ,for she said touching was prohibited ( interesting to Two The. chapter two may explain why floating ribs no longer present in human anatomy along with Why all personal ancient and current copies of KJV bible no longer say Heavens but Heaven along with such other passages which have been changed Personally rejoice for such events are foretold …. Alas Ecclesiastes 7:8 The Preacher points to Thee Glorious Divine Completion combined with hundreds of prophecies as the world grows darker thee light reveals more clearly
    There is basically only one SIN “unbelief” Matt 4:4. Thee answer Jn six:sixtythree to avoid sixtysix Eve was Deceived, not well informed It appears Adam Disobeyed, was over confident (pride) resulting in spiritual malfunction instead of spirit ruling soul and body , soul and body would rule spirit Thus our greatest challenge is this balance of knowing and doing that is relinquish our only possession (see three Brain’s of the body) the policy Maker {the heart} Ezk. 36:26 Pro. 4:23 by 3:5,6,7 dismantling Genes/is 3:5-7
    Thus the great importance of Jn. 3:3 spiritual rebirth One Peter One:Twenty-three
    Put more simply Our Greatest Test is whether or not we trust and rely upon His love letter signed in blood**
