Respiratory System

Blood cells need oxygen to survive.  The lungs perform the vital function of drawing fresh air into the body and expelling air that has been used, and airborne toxins.  This system consists of:

  • Lungs

  • Trachea

  • Throat

  • Mouth

  • Sinuses

The lungs are a "gas exchange" unit.  The blood that enters the lungs is dark red in colour.  After being re-oxygenated, blood leaves the lungs regenerated and the colour changes to a bright red.

Imbalances of the respiratory system often affect the immune, circulatory and nervous systems.

LH-C

LH-C is a Chinese combination which helps strengthen the lungs and immune system by enabling the body to recuperate from illness.  LH-C is especially beneficial for dy, weakened respiratory conditions and poor digestive function.  LH-C contains herbs which improve circulation, dilate the bronchioles for easier breathing, increase the production of mucosal fluids to moisten dry and inflamed tissues, and relax muscle spasms to suppress coughing.  LH-C also promotes expectoration, reduces fever, calms the nerves, and fights infection, particularly where there is chronic respiratory weakness.

Caution:  Pregnancy and nursing.

AL-J

AL-J is an excellent respiratory formula for relieving sinus and upper respiratory congestion associated with allergies.  AL-J contains herbs that help stimulate perspiration and the production of mucosal fluids to remove allergens and other toxins.

Lobelia Extract

Lobelia is an indigenous North American annual plant.  It is sometimes called Indian tobacco because the American Indians smoked it for various benefits, and has been shown to contain a substance called lobeline, similar to nicotine.  The plant is beautiful as well as useful.  Lobelia is among the most beneficial herbs for the respiratory system.  It is a very good respiratory stimulant and bronchodilator.  It is also a very effective expectorant.

SN-X

SN-X is an herbal decongestant and expectorant which helps soothe lung and sinus inflammation and fights infection.  SN-X combines herbs which help clear sinus congestion, expel excess mucus, shrink swollen tissues, lower fever, and relax muscle spasms to control coughing.  SN-X does not cause drowsiness like many over-the-counter decongestants.  SN-X is effective for allergies, asthma, bronchitis, colds, coughs, pleurisy, rhinitis, sinus headache, sinus infection, sinusitis, and sore throat.  This combination is a natural source of magnesium, potassium, silicon and zinc.  It is also a source of vitamins A, C and thiamin.

Caution:  Pregnancy and nursing.

Fenugreek & Thyme

Fenugreek & Thyme is a popular combination for nutritionally supporting the respiratory system.

Fenugreek & Thyme is an herbal decongestant and expectorant which helps relieve symptoms of respiratory congestion and constriction, including allergies, asthma, bronchitis, colds, hayfever, and sinus/lung congestion.

The herbs in this combination help to relax muscle spasms to reduce coughing and stimulate expectoration, and have been shown to help soothe inflamed tissues.

HistaBlock

HistaBlock is a bioflavonoid-rich combination designed to block the release of histamine to help control allergic reactions and breathing disorders.  Specifically, HistaBlock helps to support mucous membrane health; minimize the effects of irritants and pollutants; and, maintain open nasal passageways.

Stinging Nettle has a long history of use as an anti-inflammatory and histamine blocker.  The majority of participants in one study felt that stinging nettle provided better relief from allergy symptoms than their conventional drugs.  The bioflavonoids quercetin, bromelain and fructus aurantia immaturi (rind of an immature orange) have all demonstrated significant anti-inflammatory activity due to their ability to block the release of histamine.  In addition, bromelain assists in the absorption, and therefore the effectiveness, of quercetin.
