It seems that more people than ever are experiencing suboptimal lung function and having difficulty breathing, which in turn affects energy output, workouts, and daily functioning. Lung problems have been worsened by the toxicity in our diets, and environments, and by Spike Protein. Now, more than ever, it is important to support lung health with the right supplements and to make better lifestyle choices for optimal lung health.
The Importance of Lung Function
Lung function is of vital importance to overall health and well-being. Here are some key reasons why lung function is significant:
- Oxygenation. The primary function of the lungs is to facilitate the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide between the air we breathe and our bloodstream. Oxygen is essential for the functioning of every cell in our body. Adequate lung function ensures efficient oxygenation, allowing cells, tissues, and organs to carry out their functions optimally.
- Respiratory Health. Healthy lung function is crucial for maintaining respiratory health. The lungs act as a filtration system, helping to remove pollutants, allergens, and pathogens from the air we inhale. They also produce mucus to trap and eliminate harmful particles and microorganisms. Good lung function supports the proper clearance of mucus, reducing the risk of respiratory infections such as pneumonia and bronchitis.
- Physical Performance. Efficient lung function is essential for physical performance and endurance. During exercise or strenuous activities, the demand for oxygen increases, and the lungs need to deliver oxygen to the working muscles at an accelerated rate. Optimal lung function ensures an adequate oxygen supply to the body, allowing for improved athletic performance and endurance.
- Quality of Life. Healthy lungs contribute to an improved quality of life. With good lung function, activities such as climbing stairs, walking, and participating in recreational activities become easier and less exhausting. Maintaining healthy lung function enables individuals to lead an active and fulfilling life, participating in various physical and social activities without limitations.
There are several common lung issues that can affect individuals. Here are some of them:
- Asthma. Asthma is a chronic condition characterized by inflammation and narrowing of the airways, leading to recurring episodes of wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and coughing. Triggers for asthma attacks can vary from person to person and may include allergens, histamines, inflammatory foods, exercise, respiratory infections, and irritants like smoke or strong odors.
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). COPD is a progressive lung disease that includes conditions such as chronic bronchitis and emphysema. It is typically caused by long-term exposure to irritants like cigarette smoke and results in the gradual obstruction of airflow. Symptoms include persistent cough, shortness of breath, wheezing, and excessive production of mucus.
- Pneumonia. Pneumonia is an infection that causes inflammation in the air sacs of the lungs. It can be caused by various microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Common symptoms include cough, fever, chills, chest pain, shortness of breath, and fatigue. Pneumonia can range from mild to severe, and complications can arise, especially in older adults and individuals with weakened immune systems.
- Pulmonary Embolism. A pulmonary embolism occurs when a blood clot (typically originating from the leg) travels to the lungs and blocks a blood vessel. This can lead to a sudden decrease in blood oxygen levels and cause symptoms such as sudden onset of shortness of breath, chest pain, rapid breathing, coughing up blood, and sometimes fainting.
- Tuberculosis (TB). Tuberculosis is an infectious disease caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis. It primarily affects the lungs but can also affect other parts of the body. Symptoms of active TB include persistent cough (sometimes with blood-tinged sputum), weight loss, fatigue, fever, night sweats, and chest pain.
- Lung Cancer. Lung cancer is a malignant tumor that starts in the cells of the lungs. It is strongly associated with smoking but can also occur in non-smokers due to other factors such as exposure to secondhand smoke, occupational hazards (like asbestos or radon), environmental toxins, and genetic predisposition. Symptoms may include persistent cough, coughing up blood, chest pain, shortness of breath, unexplained weight loss, and recurrent respiratory infections.
Causes of Poor Lung Function
There can be numerous reasons lung health issues occur. Some of the most common causes of lung issues include:
- Spike Protein. Spike Protein associated with the virus affects the ACE2 receptor in the liver; this is known to affect the lungs and cardiovascular system among other essential areas of the body. When there is a building up of Angiotensin 2 in the liver from the Spike Protein, the following issues occur:
- increased vasoconstriction;
- increased fibrosis;
- increase in Antidiuretic Hormone (ADH);
- increased Aldosterone;
- increased water and sodium retention;
- increased oxidative stress;
- increased inflammation in the lungs and body;
- increased over-exaggerated histamine response;
- increased amount of fibroids;
- increased insulin dysregulation;
- increased hormone imbalance; As a result of the inflammation, vasoconstriction and oxidative stress, lung function can be compromised, making breathing more difficult and labored.
- Leaky Gut. Leaky gut causes systemic inflammation, including in the lungs, in addition to causing new food allergies to arise that can also lead to lung allergies and asthma.
- Increased Exposure to Toxins. With an increased exposure to heavy metals, radiation, GMO’s, glyphosate, and other toxins in the environment, our detox pathways, especially in the liver, become backed up, leading to systemic inflammation and oxidative stress. This will inflame the lung tissues as well, causing more lung issues.
- Increased Allergens. With gut issues and autoimmune issues on the rise and the increase in toxins in our food and environment, many more people are experiencing allergies. Histamine levels may increase causing inflammation throughout the body including the lungs. The most common allergens are casein, shellfish, peanuts, soy, eggs, corn, and gluten. Other triggers could be dandelion, sunflower seeds, melons, and zucchini.
- Moldy Food. Foods that contain mold can trigger inflammation in the lungs. These foods include grapes, mushrooms, lentils, honey, corn, peanuts, berries, peas, grains, beans and more.
- Histamine Intolerance. Histamine is a chemical compound that is naturally produced by the body as part of the immune response. It plays a crucial role in various physiological processes and is involved in allergic reactions and inflammation. Here are some key points about histamine:
- Immune Response. Histamine is released by certain immune cells, such as mast cells and basophils, in response to injury, infection, or allergens. It acts as a signaling molecule, triggering an inflammatory response to defend the body against potential threats.
- Allergic Reactions. In individuals with allergies, histamine is released in response to harmless substances, such as pollen, pet dander, or certain foods. This release of histamine leads to the symptoms associated with allergies, including sneezing, itching, runny nose, watery eyes, and skin reactions like hives.
- Inflammatory Response. Histamine is involved in the inflammatory process. It causes blood vessels to dilate, making them more permeable, which allows immune cells and other substances to reach the site of inflammation. This increased blood flow and permeability contribute to redness, swelling, and warmth that are often observed during inflammation. Excessive or dysregulated histamine release can lead to allergic reactions and related conditions like asthma, allergic rhinitis, and hives. Eating high histamine foods makes the problem worse. Furthermore, eating foods with sulfur can trigger a histamine response, causing asthma or lung issues.
How to Improve Lung Health
As a certified supplement expert with my own award-winning supplement brand for more than 10 years, I’ve come across great supplements for lung health (and some you should stay away from).
In recommending supplements for lung health, I’m particularly looking for supplements that will not only stabilize any existing lung conditions but also help to support optimal lung health and prevent poor lung health.
Accelerated Scalar Silver®
Accelerated Scalar Silver® not only helps devitalize the foreign pathogens that can inhibit lung function, but it also helps reduce inflammation in the lungs. Nebulizing Accelerated Scalar Silver® into the lungs targets the lungs directly and effectively.
Accelerated Scalar Silver® is the only nano particle silver enhanced with Scalar frequencies and treated with water implosion technology to improve its efficacy beyond any other silver supplement.
Acceleradine® Iodine is known to devitalize all foreign pathogens that could inhibit lung function including viruses, bacteria, candida, parasites, and fungus. Acceleradine® is also anti-inflammatory, helping reduce the inflammation in the lungs that could be causing suboptimal breathing. Nebulizing Acceleradine®, diluted in water, helps target lung health specifically and effectively.
Acceleradine® Iodine also helps optimize thyroid function and metabolism, both of which affect lung function. Lastly, Acceleradine® Iodine may reverse the damage to the DNA by the mRNA and Spike Protein, which has been connected to suboptimal lung function.
Additional Supplements for Optimal Lung Health
Accelerated Keto™ kicks the body into ketosis, which is where the body is burning fat and ketones for energy. Not only does this increase ATP, or cellular energy, but it is a cleaner burner fuel with less “waste”. As a result, less oxygen is needed to breathe and less oxidative stress is released in the body– both factors take the pressure off of the lungs.
Lung function becomes easier and more efficient.
Furthermore, inflammation in the lungs and throughout the body is minimized with the combination of Accelerated Keto™ and Intermittent Fasting, and autophagy is triggered which helps “clean up” the damaged cells and foreign pathogens that could be leading to poor lung function.
Accelerated Scalar Copper™
The air we breathe is 19 percent O2, or dioxygen; copper is able to negate the oxidizing power of dioxygen. Copper also may limit the side effects of free radicals which could be leading to suboptimal lung function.
Accelerated Scalar Copper™ is the only liquid form of copper that can be nebulized directly in the lungs. It is 99% bioavailable, enhanced with healing scalar frequencies, and “energized” through a water implosion technology system; all factors that increase its efficacy beyond any other copper supplement.
Serramend is Serrepeptase, or proteolytic enzyme, that helps break down the Spike Protein which has worsened lung function for most people.
The Spike Protein has both protein and lipid components; Serramend breaks down proteins and fats and acts as a vacuum for the Spike Protein fragments leftover. Furthermore, it is anti-inflammatory and helps lung function. It has also been shown to help with limiting the ability of biofilm to form in the body, minimizing bacteria, considering 80% of bacterial infections are caused by biofilms.
Lifestyle Changes For Optimal Lung Health
Incorporating lung supplements into your health routine will help support great lung health; however, making the following lifestyle changes goes hand in hand with creating optimal lung health, and therefore achieving a higher level of overall health and wellbeing.
Eliminate Processed Foods and Seed Oils. Processed foods and seed oils ie. Canola oil, sunflower oil, safflower oil, peanut oil, rice bran oil, are extremely inflammatory to the body, and may cause inflammation in the lungs. As a result, breathing becomes difficult and oxygen utilization is hindered.
Processed foods include most any food that comes in a package and usually include ingredients like high fructose corn syrup, fake sugars, canola oil, peanut oil, and rice bran oil. Not only are these foods inflammatory, but they strip the gut of its mucosal lining, causing Leaky Gut.
Leaky Gut is directly related to allergies and many autoimmune issues that can affect lung health.
Focus on Eating Wild Animal Protein. Most people can safely eat wild animal protein without any allergies or intolerances. Wild animal protein provides more dense nutrients than any other food without any common allergens. These high protein, preservative free foods help support all muscles, tissues and organs including the lungs. Bison, lamb, wild fish, deer, elk and cornish game hen are great examples of these meats.
Eliminate Amyloid Proteins. Chicken, conventional beef, pork, and even turkey can be inflammatory due to the GMO’s, glyphosate, and inflammatory foods the animals are eating. Furthermore, due to the crowded conditions the animals are raised in, these meats have Amyloids, or misfolded proteins, that can trigger gut pathogens like E. Coli, Salmonella, and H. Pylori to wreak havoc and cause an inflammatory and allergic response. This may lead to suboptimal lung function as well.
Eliminate Foods with Mold. Foods with mold can trigger inflammation in the body including the lungs. These foods include grapes, mushrooms, lentils, honey, corn, peanuts, berries, peas, grains, beans and more.
Eliminate High Histamine Food and Beverages. Food and beverages with high histamines can trigger inflammation in the lungs, causing asthma or labored breathing. High histamine food and beverages include:
- Fermented foods
- Aged foods
- Fish and shellfish
- Bone broth
Eliminate Sulfur Foods. Foods high in sulfur could be triggering a histamine response in addition to backing up your liver. When the liver is backed up, no toxins can be processed and eliminated out of the body, which may further an exaggerated inflammatory response.
Foods high in sulfur include, but are not limited to:
- Egg yolks
Some medications, and supplements like MSM or glutathione also may contain sulfur.
At the end of the day, the lungs are a major organ, we require them to function at optimal levels to support our overall health. Making lifestyle changes and adding the right supplements to your health routine can make a dramatic impact to your overall lung health.
