The Best Remedy for Your Lungs (Infection, Asthma & COPD)

Lung Health Support: Vitamin D, Light Therapy, and the Power of the Sun

If you struggle with lung infections, asthma, or COPD, consider these natural approaches alongside your doctor-recommended treatment:

Why these conditions overlap: Inflammation, constricted airways, and immune system challenges are common threads. Over time, standard medications can lose effectiveness.

Vitamin D: A Potential Helper

  • Benefits: Fights microbes, modulates immunity, reduces inflammation, and supports lung muscle function.

  • Note: Some people have genetic variations affecting vitamin D absorption ("polymorphism"). If standard doses don't seem to help, talk to your doctor about testing and potentially increasing your intake.

Light Therapy: Promising Research

  • Infrared Light: May relax airways for easier breathing, combat inflammation, potentially reduce scarring in COPD, and even help filter air pollutants.

  • UV Light: Can kill airborne germs, reducing the burden on your immune system.

The Ultimate Lung Remedy: The Sun

Sunlight delivers a powerhouse combo: UV light, UVB light (for vitamin D production), and infrared light. This natural exposure directly benefits your lungs, inflammation levels, and immune function. Plus, sunlight boosts melatonin, a potent antioxidant that may even reduce coughing.
