Lungs

SYSTEM: Respiratory

CATEGORY: Organ

NUMBER: Two

SHAPE: Soft, spongy and coned shaped (see Lungs Title Page)

SIZE: The right lung has three lobes and is larger, wider and shorter than the left.  The left lung is smaller, narrower and longer with 2 lobes. The average lung capacity is 750 ml or 1 quart.

LOCATION: Enclosed by the diaphragm (upper chest) and thoracic cage (ribs) and are separated by the heart, heart vessels, thymus, trachea and esophagus.

FUNCTION: Intakes Oxygen to oxygenate the blood, eliminates waste and carbon dioxide and controls air flow for voice activity.

KINESIOLOGY: There are 2 test zones located in the soft tissue depression 2 inch below outer 3rd of the clavicle (collarbone) on both sides. Touch/tap (see lungs Page 6)

IRIDOLOGY: In both eyes.  Right eye at 9:00 to 9:50. In the left eye at 2:10 to 3:00 neither touch the autonomic nerve wreath (see Lungs Page 7).  Also check out medulla.

REFLEXOLOGY: About 1 inch below toes on ball of foot (see Lungs Page 8)

HELPS TO IMPROVE FUNCTION:  Breathing clean air, deep breathing exercises, exercising, staying away from mucus or acid forming food, eating fresh fruits and vegetables.  If bowels are congested the mucus does not drain properly.

DETRIMENTAL TO ITS HEALTH: Smoking and second hand smoke. Pollutants, hidden gases, excessive heat or cold, dust, milk, all dairy products but butter. Red meats, chemicals, animal dander, asbestos and working in the mines (black lung), clothing factories (brown lung) and in bakery (white lung)

POSSIBLE SYMPTOMS/HEALTH CONDITIONS:  

Chronic cough, bluish lips or nails (cyanosis), pain in chest, difficult or painful respiration, coughing up blood, shortness of breath, gasping, congestion and rattled breathing.

HYPERACTIVITY (OVERACTIVE)

HYPOACTIVE (UNDERACTIVE)

MAIN MINERALS: All especially calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, copper, fluorine and silicon.

MAIN VITAMINS: C reduces inflammation and moves mucus, A maintains healthy mucous membranes and E antioxidant protects lung tissue.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:

Most people have respiratory problems because of their ingestion of milk products, i.e.: milk, cheese, ice cream, yogurt.

Red meats and sugar also contribute to mucus problems.

The herb (Ma Huang) contains compound ephedrine. Caution: Do not take Ephedra with caffeine products (it can cause heart attacks or stroke); avoid this herb if you have thyroid disease, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes or enlarged prostate.  Ephedra is found in Sinus Support (formally SN-X), Chinese Breathe EZ (formally AL-C), LH and Nature's Chi.

Drinking plenty of liquids helps ensure lung secretion and helps keep mucus thin.

Vaporizers help with needed moisture, but make sure they are cleaned thoroughly often to prevent airborne bacteria.

Don't suppress cough if it is productive unless you are losing entirely too much sleep.
