Medical Medium: tips for poor air quality
If you or someone you love has been exposed to smoke, soot, and poor air quality from the fires in California or elsewhere, there are some simple ways you can help protect your health that I want to share with you. Exposure to toxic air can be a trigger for other underlying health conditions, resulting in a worsening of symptoms or new symptoms appearing for the first time. Below I have included a list of different options and ways you can support your health and the health of your family and loved ones. My prayers and love are with you and everyone who is being affected by the fires or any challenging circumstance.
A high quality mask can help protect your lungs from soot, debris, pollution, and toxins. The N100 mask I recommend is especially effective and is also comfortable to wear. N100 Masks
A good filter can clean the air, including from smoke, and lower its toxicity significantly.

There are some great supplements that can help strengthen your health during exposure to toxic air, smoke, and soot and protect your lungs.
Mullein Leaf helps strengthen the oxygen sacs of the lungs.
Ester C is an expectorant which helps to loosen and remove debris from the air passages.
Lomatium Root is highly effective at aiding respiratory ailments and also helps the body detoxify.
Herbal teas can also be a great way to support your health during this time (and beyond.) The below teas help to open the bronchial tubes and passageways and reduce inflammation.
HERBS & SPICES
Garlic, rosemary, sage, and thyme are especially helpful for improving blood flow into the lungs allowing for detoxification of poisons. The fresh herbs are the most potent and effective to include but dried herbs can be used when fresh is unavailable. They can be added to salads, soups, dips, juices, smoothies, teas, and more. Here is a recipe for thyme tea and water that could be easily interchanged with rosemary and/or sage.
Staying very well hydrated is critical for protecting your health in situations like these. Drinking plenty of lemon or lime water, cucumber juice, coconut water, and other fresh fruit and vegetable juices will enable your body to detoxify whatever toxins you’re exposed to as best as possible. It will also keep your blood thinner to help your heart provide adequate blood and oxygen to your brain and other organs. It would also be helpful to keep your diet based on as much fresh produce as possible at this time, versus eating too much cooked, dehydrated, or processed food to minimize dehydration.
