Gasp! Smokey times, Here's what will help
If you are breathing wildfire smoke here are some things that can help you!
Vitamin C: Smoke causes inflammation via oxidative damage so antioxidants will be very helpful during this time. One of our best antioxidants is Vitamin C. You can increase your dose up to bowel tolerance (too much will cause loose stools). Recommended: 3000 to 6000mg/day in divided doses.
Vitamin D3: Recommended: 5,000 to 10,000 iu/day with meals
Glutathione: Liposomal glutathione can detoxify toxins found in smoke and has great potential benefit to preventing damage from smoke inhalation. Recommended: 1 teaspoon of liposomal form twice daily or 2 sprays twice daily, OR if you can't get Glutathione...
N-acetyl cysteine (NAC): is a precursor to glutathione and can be used if glutathione is not available as a supplement. NAC is a powerful mucolytic, breaking down and eliminating accumulated mucus from the lungs. In addition to facilitating breathing, toxins and germs threatening the lungs are also removed. People with various lung disorders such as bronchitis, asthma, and emphysema may greatly benefit from NAC.
Selenium: As an antioxidant, selenium helps fight free radical damage and reduces oxidative stress.
Herbs: Green tea, ginger, and turmeric can be highly effective in inhibiting the activation of carcinogens in environmental smoke. Use in cooking or as a tea.
Neurofeedback: Do Neurofeedback for help with anxiety, insomnia, depression, PTSD. Sessions available at the clinic in Bellingham or machines for rent are available to use at home - we ship anywhere in the country.
Breathe well, Be Well,
