Why is lung health important?

Lung health is important for 3 reasons:

  1. First, healthy lungs are essential to fuel every cell in our body with oxygen, and to remove metabolites, such as carbon dioxide (CO2).
  2. Second, breathing directly connects to mind and emotions. Awareness and control of the breath is a resilience shield against chronic stress, anxiety, and mental overload.
  3. Third, the upper airways are also a very important part of the immune system, as they are often the first barrier to viruses or other pathogens.

Keeping your lungs healthy is a vital part of supporting your immune system (for more information, watch the webinar https://www.pnmedical.com/breather-university/flu-covid19-part1/). 

Healthy lungs do more than to just keep you breathing.
