Smoking a pack of cigarettes a day is people's favorite leisure. “I'll go and have a smoke” - this phrase became a reason to interrupt work, a necessary waste of money and not only. However, it is always time to pay bills. In the process of smoking, tar and nicotine, which together with other harmful substances, cause irreparable harm to health, enter the body.
Preparation and precautions
Full recovery takes from four months to a year, depending on the individual characteristics of the organism. The main criterion in the purification of the respiratory tract is the availability of free time. It is necessary to act gradually, step by step. If the accumulated sputum is discharged quickly, its even more secretion is not excluded, which is fraught with impaired lung patency, and, over time, can lead to the development of oncology.
From the point of view of medical practice, treatment begins with folk remedies. Homemade drugs gently affect the body and do not have side effects. Of the many recipes, each will choose the best option. A balanced diet will also shorten the recovery period of organs damaged during smoking.
It is not necessary to start abruptly to intensive sports training, because during a long run, the load not only on the heart muscle, but also on the bronchopulmonary system, increases several times.
Why clean the lungs
Self-cleansing occurs in people who consume the minimum amount of cigarettes. In other cases, the mucus produced by the cells, which helps remove nicotine, tar, carcinogens and irritants from the respiratory tract, becomes more viscous and sputum secretion becomes more difficult. When this happens, the vessels are blocked and gas exchange is disturbed, as a result of which an insufficient amount of oxygen enters the blood.
Cleaning the lungs helps the respiratory system to remove harmful substances, to clean the walls of the bronchi, to enrich the blood with oxygen. All this helps to restore damaged areas, improve metabolic processes and improve immunity in general.
