Detox from smoke inhalation! Been breathing lately? Regular oxygen exchange, known as “breathing”, is a requirement for mammalian life. With the fires raging all around us in recent times, our air quality has been extremely compromised for weeks on end.
Have you noticed feeling tired, anxious, edgy, easily irritated? Perhaps a dull headache, or stiff neck? A bit of a sore throat? Maybe is your chest feeling heavy? Even some heart arrhythmias?
These are signs of smoke inhalation.
Smoke, in and of itself, is an alarm signal. As the old saying goes, “where there is smoke there is fire”. Even though man has tamed and contained fire for his own purposes, uncontrolled fire is a hard-wired, red button in our reptilian brains…yes, we all have a “reptilian brain“. It’s the source of our instincts, our strongest motivations (survival and reproduction), and our deepest fears; one of which is fire.
In addition to hi-jacking our nervous system and throwing us into “fight-flight” mode, smoke infers other liabilities as well. The kind of smoke we’ve been breathing lately isn’t just organic materials like trees and brush. It’s smoke from houses, mobile homes, and outbuildings full of stuff like carpet, PVC pipe, electrical components, insulation, drywall, foam, and plastics. Imagine what people keep in storage buildings; fuel, insecticides, chemical fertilizers, paint,…try not to think about the meth labs!
ALL OF IT going up in smoke, into your lungs, and ultimately into your internal organs.
I foresee tough times ahead for a lot of folks who’s systems are bogged down with the garbage they have been breathing. Nasty toxins that will draw down their immune systems like leaving car lights on overnight will drain the battery. This opens the door to opportunistic microbes causing illness like influenza, bronchitis, pneumonia,.. Ick! Danger!
I don’t know about all of you, but I’m thinking DETOX!
Yes, detox and immune building; along with respiratory (lungs and sinus) tissue support.
If you’re thinking what I’m thinking at this point, give a call and get lined out on a plan of action to save yourself some misery.
We have an easy and effective 21 Day Detox Program that gets the garbage out of your system gives your immune system a big boost.
You can detox individually, bring friends and family, or join a group of like-minded people.

Breathing is non-optional and life sucks when you’re sick.
