5 Steps To Protect Yourself
The environment is now a major part of our health issues. To trek from doctor’s office to doctor’s office looking for solutions to your health problems, without addressing your environment, is sticking your head in the sand and could be preventing you from getting or staying well.
Many of us live under urban “Pigpen” clouds. In the air, although you cannot see it, is a fine particulate matter that you inhale. That cloud of tiny particles hammers your respiratory health and adversely affects your intestinal lining and brain tissue. So part of being healthy, or recovering from health issues, means you have to find a way to address and minimize the potential damage from these inhaled molecules.
Gasses are emitted around the clock from vehicles and incinerators. These gasses contain metals such as copper, iron, and manganese, which interact with the already acidic sulfate-rich particles in the air. This produces a toxic aerosol that we walk in, drive in, or sit in, like at an out door restaurant near busy streets.
These toxic gasses linger over roadways and get blown across town by the wind, so no matter where you live, there is air pollution. In fact, mini-whirlwinds carry particulate matter overhead from other countries and deposit them in what you thought was your pristine backyard.
It’s like inhaling an “oxidative storm” right into your lungs and body. The National Science Foundation and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency collected samples of particulate matter in two locations in Atlanta. They found a significant mixture of ambient (it’s just there in your air) sulfate along with metal particles on an ongoing basis, which the citizens of Atlanta are walking around breathing. Other samples far from busy highways had less of this mixture but still enough to cause oxidative lung damage and more. These oxidative inhaled mixtures were statistically associated with hospital admissions in Atlanta for asthma and wheezing.
What to do?
1. Consider a car air filter.
2. Put high-end air filters in offices and homes, as this is where you spend most of your time.
3. Take antioxidants as a precaution to offset the oxidative stress.
4. Exercise to keep your lung tissue healthy, even in the face of 24/7 assaults.
5. Find professionally designed and monitored detox methods and incorporate them into your life style several times a year.
When you are ill today, you and your practitioners must consider the environment as part of your differential diagnosis: meaning you look at all the possible issues that could be contributing to making you sick: mold, infectious agents, nutritional deficiencies, microbiome imbalances, and on and on. But you must go to practitioners that make sure to add in the very air you breathe.
PS. Regular healthy intimacy has been shown to boost the immune system of the lungs for better pulmonary protection!
