6 Herbs for lung Support

When we breathe

Our inhale receives life

And our exhale shares it back to the world


This sounds so easy but for much of my life inhaling and exhaling came to me with great difficulty. I had severe asthma as a child that followed me up through adulthood. I relied on inhalers and antihistamines to keep breathing and suffered several lung infections every year.

Of course “receiving” and sharing back life is connected to more than just our physiological lung function.

Our lungs are the seat of our grief. Grief is one of our most precious living emotions. Grief is the one of the gifts of being alive and it is in our lungs that we gather it to be breathed into and inspirited by the elemental matrix we call air.
