Lungs detoxification is very important nowadays because in the polluted environment, they are affecting more than other organs and results into various harmful health disorders. Lungs are defined as a pair of spongy, air-filled organs located on either side of the chest. The main function of the lungs is the process of gas exchange called Respiration. In this process, the oxygen from incoming air enters the blood, and carbon dioxide, i.e. waste gas from the metabolism, leaves the blood. Nowadays, Lungs detoxification is so important in maintaining the proper functioning of the lungs to get rid of various harmful infections.
Every cell in the body needs oxygen to live. The air we breathe contains many tiny particles that must be removed before the air reaches the air sacs deep in the lungs. Our nose, trachea, and other respiratory organs act as an air-cleansing system and filter out harmful toxins, dust, bacteria, and other substances.

Impact of Environmental Factors on Lungs:
In our industrialized developed world, we are daily immersed in a sea of toxic chemicals and lungs are one that is exposed to various environmental agents directly. It is estimated by the Environmental Protection Agency that half a million chemicals are in use today and over 5000 new chemicals are introduced yearly. Thus, Detoxification of the lungs should be done by every individual in day-to-day life to remove harmful and poisonous chemicals from the deep tissues of the respiratory tract.
Intake of toxins in any form leads to upper respiratory problems like pharyngitis, laryngitis, and rhinitis, and lower respiratory tract problems like chronic bronchitis, asthma, pneumonia, COPD, etc.
Lung health has been affected adversely by air pollution as a serious environmental challenge. Outdoor air pollution mainly results from human activities such as heat generation, industrial pollution, fuel combustion, etc. Upon inhalation, the air with its components enters the human body through the respiratory system, thus the particles like silica, organic compounds, and metallic dust have toxic effects on the respiratory system. This leads to various respiratory diseases and in that case Lungs detoxification is mandatory.
Role & Importance of Ayurveda in combating Lungs-related disorders:
According to the Ayurvedic point of view, aggravation of the Kapha dosha along with Vata dosha results in various respiratory-related disorders. According to Ayurvedic acharyas, excess intake of dry, cold, heavy, incompatible food, irregular intake of food, exposure to dust, smoke, and wind, intake of cold water, cold climate, smoking, and other addiction leads to disturbance in the functioning of doshas and hence results in various symptoms.
It was believed that in Ayurveda, every herb is a medicine and is rich in multiple medicinal properties. Also, many therapies are described by Acharyas for the detoxification of the body, boosting immunity, rejuvenation, and maintain the functioning of all organs.
Some most common therapies for Lungs Detoxification are described below:
Kavala (Gargling): Gandusha or Kavala is a process of gargling with oil, usually sesame oil is recommended for this therapy. This process cleans the obstructed passage by expelling the accumulated mucus, clears the sinuses, and reduces the risk of allergic reaction in the respiratory system, and results in natural Lungs detoxification.
Applying of Ghee in Nose: The application of ghee in nostrils effectively works in clearing the nasal congestion and balancing Kapha Dosha. Dip the little finger in liquid ghee and massage each nostril for few seconds. By applying a thin layer of ghee to the inner wall of the nostrils will prevent the entrance of pollutants present in the air. Also, it clears the nasal passages and prevents a person from congestion and other associated symptoms.
Inhale Steaming: In Ayurveda, it is termed as Vaap swedana. It is an Ayurvedic process that keeps the mucosal layer healthy and clears it from smoke, dirt, and other pollutants. This therapy can be used daily for the detoxification of the lungs because it expels excess phlegm, dust particles from the tract and improves the functioning of the lungs.
Pranayama: Pranayama is the best therapy recommended from ancient times for respiration. It helps in the detoxification of the lungs, reducing airway inflammation, and increases chest expansion. It is believed that Kapalabhati helps in clearing the mucus, relieves congestion, and improves the lung’s capacity. In studies, it was determined that 6 weeks of practicing pranayama for 1 hour a day could have a significant effect on lung function.
Detoxification process and why it is important?
In Simple language, detoxification refers to the natural removal of toxins from the body and then feeding it with healthy nutrients. The human body has a natural ability to detoxify itself because the body has a few frameworks set up for evacuating waste. The most evident activity of the framework is urination and defecation. The fundamental organs that form the excretory framework are the skin, lungs, liver, kidneys, and internal organs.
Lungs are self-cleansing organs that will begin to heal themselves once they are no longer exposed to pollutants, but due to various factors when the lungs got infected it is quite difficult for the lungs to detoxify itself and it results in various symptoms like chest congestion, difficulty in breathing, mild pain in the chest region, common cough, cold, sinusitis, etc. In that case, the detoxification of the lungs is very important to prevent them from secondary infections and further complications.
Nowadays, due to busy work schedules and irresponsible behavior, people are going towards chemical-based products even in the condition of the common cold and cough. They are not able to realize what they are taking just for temporary relief. They don’t want to stop the causative or trigger factors but are willing to take poisonous medicines. After that, the result is side effects, complications, organ damage, operations, etc.
Why don’t people understand, our body is natural and everyone is needed for detoxification and natural herbs because we are habitual of taking unhealthy diet, wrong lifestyle, heavy pollution, industrial work, etc.
