Lung Detox and Preventing Lung Cancer Due to Smoking
Lung cancer is just one of the serious illnesses that can be contracted through smoking and tobacco. Although it is possible for non smokers to get lung cancer, 9 out of 10 people who die of lung cancer are smokers. Obviously quitting smoking is a step in the right direction for avoiding getting lung cancer but it is still no guarantee against it. The main reason for this is that many of the chemicals and toxins that cause lung cancer through smoking can remain present in the lung tissue for many years. One estimate is that it can take up to 10 – 15 years for the body to remove these toxins naturally in your average smoker.
This was the worry for me when I quit after 25 years of heavy smoking. As happy as I was at managing to stop, I was more than aware of the damage I must have already caused to my lungs and so at the back of my mind I just had this fear that I was still at high risk of dying of lung cancer. So much so that I almost began to think ‘well what’s the point. It’s probably too late for me now.’ I almost started smoking again after a few weeks.
It’s at this low point that I decided to take some action and do something positive to not only help my body but also mind. My wife had quit smoking about a year before me, and to her credit had never once put any pressure on me to quit, just saying that I would quit when I was ready. Well one step that she had taken was to do a simple lung detoxification to help remove the toxins from her lungs & body. It was just something that she did at home and I remembered her following a guide for a few weeks which she swore by. So that’s what I decided to do too.
This method clears out the lungs at a much quicker pace which not only helps with the quitting smoking process but also helps to prevent lung cancer. Lung Cancer actually can begin as soon as the lung cells are exposed to the cancer causing chemicals in smoke, so a major factor with contracting it is the length of time you have smoked. The toxins actually create abnormal cells which over time can turn cancerous. If the toxins are removed then this allows the cells to begin to be replaced again by normal healthy cells and so decreases the chance of cancer. Removing these toxin quicker allows the cells to replace themselves quicker.
Since doing the lung detox, I have to say I haven’t looked back. I feel healthy, I don’t smell of stale smoke, my skin is bright and clean looking, not grey and lack luster like it used to be. Life is so much better now.
