'The lungs bring oxygen into the cells, help detox the body and they can heal you when functioning correctly. To cleanse the lungs means to eliminate toxins in the body that could be affecting the function of the organ and body itself.
Is a detox really necessary? In short, yes. The large number of pollutants we encounter every day complicate the body’s detoxification efforts, which in turn leave the body more vulnerable to illnesses and disease, not to mention hormonal imbalances.

But supporting the lungs improves the results of any liver detox and in turn reap the benefits of better health. '
