Airborne pollution and particulates are widespread. These irritate the sinuses and lungs and can lead to serious respiratory issues.

When particles enter the respiratory system via the nose or the mouth, the body turns on its cleansing mechanisms, and the immune system is put on active duty. So we are in constant alert mode from the great amount of pollutants in our air.

The routine spraying of toxic agents in the air from jet airplanes in what is called "stratospheric aerosol geo-engineering" has been generating increased respiratory ailments. Beyond that the many airborne poisons in our homes and environment cause respiratory problems.

When the sinuses get irritated and inflamed, mucus is be released from the sensitive linings of these nasal cavities. The mucus can clog the airways, especially if it dries and hardens.

The lungs, organs crucial to survival, can also be irritated by pollutants and impaired by mucus in the bronchials. Our respiratory system is also effected by tension. 

A deficiency of oxygen is at the root of much disease. There are herbs and breath techniques that can help the lungs and improve breathing, as well as supplemental oxygen for better health.
