Herbal Remedies for Weak Lungs
Lung weakness is often a result of hereditary factors or chronic lung ailments, such as asthma, bronchitis or pneumonia, or chronic exposure to airborne pollutants or smoking.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the lung corresponds to the metal element and is nourished by the earth element. It is thought that by tonifying the earth element, which is also associated with the digestion, one can also indirectly strengthen the lungs. Use digestive stimulants and lung tonics. If possible, remove lung irritating factors such as smoking, dust, or chemicals.
