Here are a few dietary suggestions for healthy lung function, and for the prevention and treatment of respiratory infections:

–          Consume lots of Vitamin A and carotenoid rich fruits and vegetables such as carrot, beet, red pepper, orange, mango, cantaloupe, peach, nectarine and tomato (just naming a few).

–          Juicing is an excellent way to get all these varied carotenoid compounds in one juice. Many of our juice recipes include red, orange and yellow fruits and vegetables to ensure an excellent array of nutrients.

–          Ginger is a gentle circulatory stimulant and its warming nature is perfect for alleviating respiratory congestion and reducing inflammation.

–          Garlic & onions have mild anti-inflammatory actions and are shown to be anti-microbial. They can help fight infection, reduce congestion, inflammation and allergies.

–          Drink plenty of fluid, herbal teas and soups.

–          When you have a respiratory infection it can be helpful to avoid dairy products, sugar and refined flours and processed foods.

–          Juices or salads containing horseradish and/or radish are helpful for respiratory congestion.

–          Include natural anti-microbial herbs such as thyme, rosemary & oregano in your juices, soups and meals.

–          Apply warm heat packs to your chest to alleviate pain, inflammation and congestion.

–          Use essential oils, burn or place a few drops on a tissue to inhale such as eucalyptus, tea tree, peppermint, thyme, citrus oils and/or lavender. Another excellent idea is to drop a few drops of essential oil on the shower floor before a shower, the hot water will encourage the oil to evaporate.

–          If you have allergic asthma an elimination diet may be helpful to identify food allergens.

–          Fruits and vegetables also offer significant protection against the development of lung cancer. There are a large number of studies that indicate the importance of a diet high in plant foods such as the cruciferous family, apples, grapefruit, berries, pomegranate, garlic, onions in the prevention of lung cancer.

_  Eucalyptus leaves is very effective in it. Just boil some leave and inhale the steam through nostril.
