If you've recently quit smoking, congratulations!

You've taken a monumental step towards reclaiming your health and well-being. The decision to break free from the clutches of nicotine addiction is a sign of strength and determination. However, the journey towards restoring your lung function and undoing the damage caused by years of smoking can be taxing. You've battled cravings, embraced therapies like patches, gums, and nasal sprays, and summoned every ounce of willpower to reach this point. But now, as the smoke clears, you may find yourself wondering, "What's next?"

This is where Ayurveda can offer a guiding light, towards a path of healing from the inside out. 

By incorporating Ayurvedic practices into your daily routine, you can accelerate the process of cleansing, strengthening, and revitalizing your lungs.

1. Pranayama

The Art of Breathwork Pranayama, the ancient practice of controlled breathing exercises, is a powerful tool for enhancing lung capacity and improving respiratory function. Imagine sitting in a quiet, serene space, focusing your mind on the rhythmic flow of your breath.

As you practice techniques like Anulom Vilom (Alternate Nostril Breathing) and Kapalbhati (Skull Shining Breath), you'll begin to feel a sense of clarity and ease in your breathing.

With each deep inhalation, you're inviting fresh, life-giving oxygen into your lungs, while each exhalation releases the toxins and impurities that have accumulated over years of smoking. Regular practice of Pranayama can profoundly impact your lung health, allowing you to breathe more freely and deeply. Watch here.

2. Herbal Remedies

Ayurveda offers many herbs that specifically target lung health and detoxification. Imagine sipping on a warm cup of herbal tea, infused with the potent properties of tulsi (holy basil), licorice root (mulethi), and pippali (long pepper). These herbs work in synergy, soothing inflammation, breaking down mucus, and promoting efficient respiratory function.

One such powerful Ayurvedic formulation is Amrutam Lozenge Malt, a meticulously crafted medicinal recipe that harnesses the goodness of tulsi, vasa, mulethi, pushkarmool, and tribhuvan

This unique blend is designed to detoxify the lungs and respiratory system, accelerating the healing process and supporting your journey towards optimal lung health. 


3. Nourishing from Within 

The Power of Diet As the saying goes, "You are what you eat." Ayurveda places great emphasis on the vital role that diet plays in overall well-being, including lung health. Imagine filling your plate with a vibrant array of fresh, whole foods, each bite infused with the nourishing properties of nature's bounty.

Turmeric, with its potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, can act as a natural detoxifier for your lungs. Ginger, with its pungent aroma and warming properties, helps break down stubborn mucus, clearing your respiratory passages. 

And let's not forget the importance of incorporating fresh fruits and vegetables, especially those rich in Vitamin C, like citrus fruits, which boost immunity and aid in lung repair.

By mindfully selecting nutrient-dense, whole foods and avoiding processed and toxin-laden items, you're providing your body with the building blocks it needs to heal and thrive.

4. Aromatherapy and Steam Inhalation

Breathing in Healing Imagine the soothing sensation of warm steam enveloping your face, infused with the therapeutic aromas of eucalyptus and peppermint essential oils. As you inhale deeply, you can feel the decongestant properties of these natural remedies working their magic, clearing your respiratory tract and soothing your airways. Ashtagandh, chandan, dhoop cones

Steam inhalation, coupled with the power of aromatherapy, is a time-honored Ayurvedic practice that can provide immediate relief and support the healing process. By incorporating this simple ritual into your routine, you're creating a nurturing environment for your lungs to rejuvenate and thrive.

5. Yoga and Movement

Nurturing Mind, Body, and Breath In Ayurveda, the concept of holistic well-being extends beyond the physical realm. Yoga, with its harmonious blend of physical postures, breathwork, and meditation, offers a comprehensive approach to nurturing the mind, body, and spirit.

Imagine flowing through a sequence of asanas (postures) like Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutation), Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose), and Ardha Matsyendrasana (Half Spinal Twist). Each movement is synchronized with your breath, allowing you to deepen your connection with the present moment and cultivate a greater awareness of your body's innate wisdom.

As you practice these poses, you're not only improving lung capacity and efficiency but also releasing emotional and physical tensions that may have accumulated over time. By integrating yoga and physical exercise into your routine, you're fostering a sense of balance and harmony, creating an environment conducive to healing and rejuvenation. 

6. Detoxification

Cleansing from Within: Ayurveda recognizes the importance of regular detoxification to eliminate accumulated toxins and support optimal organ function. One such powerful detoxification process is Panchakarma, a traditional Ayurvedic treatment that includes therapies like Vamana (therapeutic vomiting) and Nasya (nasal administration of medication) to cleanse the respiratory system.

For a more gentle approach, you can incorporate herbal teas made from ginger, tulsi, and licorice root, which act as natural detoxifiers for the lungs and respiratory tract. Try Amrutam Kapha Key Herbs for an easy solution. 

Imagine sipping on these warm, soothing elixirs, feeling the renewal and rejuvenation from within as the toxins are gently flushed from your body.

However, you can consult with an Ayurvedic practitioner here before embarking on any detoxification program to ensure it's tailored to your specific needs and health conditions. 

7. Lifestyle Modifications

Creating a Supportive Environment: Healing is not just a physical process but a holistic journey that involves nurturing your mind, body, and soul. Ayurveda emphasizes the importance of creating a supportive environment that fosters well-being and prevents further harm.

Imagine making conscious choices to minimize your exposure to pollutants, air pollution, and other environmental toxins. Invest in an air purifier for your home or workplace, creating a sanctuary where you can breathe freely and deeply.

Prioritize self-care by staying hydrated, ensuring you drink plenty of water to keep your respiratory tract lubricated and support the expulsion of mucus. Adopt the restorative power of sleep, allowing your body to rest and rejuvenate during the night, preparing you for the journey ahead.

Restoring healthy lungs after years of smoking is a journey that requires patience, commitment, and a holistic approach. By taking the Ayurvedic path you harmonise the mind, body, and spirit altogether. 

Remember, healing is a process, and each step you take towards incorporating these Ayurvedic practices into your daily routine will bring you closer to reclaiming your lung health and overall well-being. Accept the power of breath with open arms, nourish your body with wholesome foods, and cultivate a nurturing environment that supports your journey towards optimal health and vitality.

Amrutam Face Clean Up Reviews

Currently on my second bottle and happy with how this product has kept acne & breakouts in check. It doesn't leave the skin too dry and also doubles as a face mask.

Juhi Bhatt

Amrutam face clean up works great on any skin type, it has helped me keep my skin inflammation in check, helps with acne and clear the open pores. Continuous usage has helped lighten the pigmentation and scars as well. I have recommended the face clean up to many people and they have all loved it!!

Sakshi Dobhal

This really changed the game of how to maintain skin soft supple and glowing! I’m using it since few weeks and see hell lot of difference in the skin I had before and now. I don’t need any makeup or foundation to cover my skin imperfections since now they are slowly fading away after I started using this! I would say this product doesn’t need any kind of review because it’s above par than expected. It’s a blind buy honestly . I’m looking forward to buy more products and repeat this regularly henceforth.
