Phlegm & Mucus: How to Clear Lungs Naturally with Chinese Medicine

You think you have hay fever, when actually it turns out to be a summer cold or flu. Being full of phlegm and mucus in the lungs can be uncomfortable and hinder your daily activities and those middle-of-the-night coughing fits are far from pleasant. There are many herbal supplements that may offer a variety of natural remedies to potentially clear the lungs and improve respiratory health. At Aura Nutrition, we understand the power of herbal supplements and teas to potentially promote well-being.

Here, we explore some short term solutions but also long term solutions with potentially effective TCM (Chinese Herbal Medicine) formulas and teas which may help you breathe easier and feel better and helping you clear your throat and lungs effectively to optimise your health going forwards.

Understanding Phlegm and Mucus: The Basics

Phlegm is a type of mucus that forms in the lungs and lowers the respiratory system. Whilst mucus plays a crucial role in maintaining a healthy body, an excess can lead to significant discomfort. The usual suspects behind excessive mucus production include infections, allergies, digestive issues, smoking, and various lung conditions.

Short-Term Solutions to Combat Phlegm and Mucus

Incorporating different practices into your daily routine could help unblock your channels, revitalising your body and spirit naturally. Embrace these simple yet effective strategies to clear phlegm and mucus, allowing you to breathe easier as you welcome the vibrant energy of spring through to summer.

1. Stay Hydrated:

Drinking plenty of fluids helps thin the mucus, making it easier to expel.

2. Clear Your Airways:

Regularly expelling phlegm from your body is essential. Don’t resist the urge to cough; it's your body's way of clearing out the excess.

3. Elevate Your Head:

Keeping your head elevated can promote better blood flow and reduce mucus build-up, especially when you’re sleeping.

4. Stay Warm:

Warm environments can soothe your airways and help loosen phlegm, making it easier to clear out.

Long Term solutions:

Herbal Formulas to Clear Lungs

1. Ban Xia Hou Pu Tang

This formula is renowned for its potential ability to resolve phlegm and regulate qi (energy). It is particularly effective in possibly addressing a sensation of fullness and congestion in the chest, potentially helping to clear phlegm from the lungs and ease breathing.

2. Bi Yan Pian

Bi Yan Pian is a popular remedy for potentially clearing nasal congestion and phlegm. It targets the upper respiratory tract, which may alleviate symptoms of allergies and sinus issues, aiming to promote better airflow and lung function.

3. Mai Men Dong Tang

Mai Men Dong Tang is used to potentially nourish lung yin and moisten dryness. It could be especially useful for chronic dry cough with scanty, sticky phlegm, which may help to soothe and hydrate the respiratory tract.

4. Sheng Mai San

Sheng Mai San aims to replenish qi and generate body fluids. It’s an excellent potential formula for treating chronic cough with phlegm, especially could be helpful when accompanied by fatigue and shortness of breath.

5. Chai Hu Shu Gan San

This formula regulates the liver and relieves stagnation. By promoting the smooth flow of qi, it may help reduce the production of phlegm and mucus.

Herbal Teas for Respiratory Health

Cleanse your body with Detox T

DetoxT could help to cleanse the body and may support the immune system, which is crucial for maintaining clear lungs. The ingredients work together to potentially reduce inflammation and could promote the expulsion of toxins, including phlegm.

Concentrate and decongest with FocusT

FocusT not only aims to sharpen mental clarity but also contains ingredients like peppermint and ginger, which could have natural decongestant properties. This tea could help clear nasal passages and may reduce mucus.

How Long Does Each Formula Last?

Each bottle of Aura contains 60 tablets, designed to support your wellness goals. By following the recommended intake of 4 or 6 tablets per day (as indicated on the label), one bottle will last you 10 days. If your Chinese medical practitioner advises a lower dosage, the bottle could last up to 2 weeks.

Concentration Ratio Explained

Understanding the concentration ratio might seem confusing at first, but it’s actually straightforward. Our supplements have a standardised concentration ratio of 5:1. This means a single 36g bottle of Aura is equivalent to 180g of raw herbs.

For instance, taking the recommended dose of 2 to 3 tablets twice daily provides 3.6g, equivalent to 18g of raw herbs. We extract all herbs using water or alcohol to ensure the highest quality and purity.

When to Expect Results

Patience is key with herbal supplements. Typically, you can expect to see and feel results within 3 months of regular use. However, this may vary depending on individual dosages and personal health conditions.

The Special Touch of Herbal Supplements

Our herbal supplements are crafted with traditional Chinese pharmacopoeia in mind, using precise decoction methods to maintain the authenticity and effectiveness of each herb. This careful process ensures you receive the purest and most potent product available.
