Lung Detox that actually Works, against all odds

Can you cleanse your lungs?

Many of us have fallen into the smoking trap and are desperately looking for a viable way to detox our lungs. Here’s a lifesaver tip that worked wonders for me. A bold confession: I smoked cigarettes for over 14 years, heavily so in my late teens, and came to the alarming realization that vaping, which was advertised as a healthier alternative, was more addictive, leading to an endless and vicious nicotine cycle and reducing my cardiovascular ability.

My Smoke-filled Journey

My journey into smoking began when I was about 15 or 16 years old — my poor parents. My smoking habit intensified during my tenure at JetBlue and Chase Bank and got even worse when I joined the UN. Consequently, I was vaping every few waking seconds because it was convenient: no need to step outside to smoke, no resulting bad smell to offend the girlfriend, etc.

The increased vaping gradually had adverse effects on my health. I suffered a drastic decline in my cardiovascular ability. No longer could I jog for more than three minutes, walk without discomfort or climb stairs without being gasping for breath few steps up. My lungs were laden with hard mucus, leading to incessant dry coughing, with nothing expelled.

Understanding the Smoking & Vaping Impact

Nicotine paralyzes the small fibers in your lungs that expel hard mucus. It’s like creating your very own poison and inhaling it!

Starting Your Lung Detox Journey

An effective lung detox can help manage or reverse the damage done, and you’re in a better place if you’ve never smoked or have quit earlier. However, achieving this isn’t a walk in the park; it requires grit and consistency, so brace up!

1. Take n-acetylcysteine (NaC) regularly

N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) is an amino acid that can help with lung health and detoxification.

Detoxification: NAC helps with the formation, scavenging, and detoxification of radicals and DNA damage and repair.


NaC is usually found combined with selenium, a beneficial compound we usually don’t have plenty of in our diets. It’s needed for the thyroid to function properly.

NaC does some sort of magic in our body – it’s converted into the world’s most powerful antioxidant, glutathione, a thousand times more potent than any other. Shocked? Me too!

Why not take glutathione orally instead? The liver metabolizes and destroys most of the consumed glutathione before the body absorbs it. Consuming NAC, which the body converts into glutathione, bypasses this issue.

2. Pair NAC with Mullen

Get loose Mullen leaf, boil it in water for about five to ten minutes, let it cool down, and drink it. This, together with NAC, will help break up the hard mucus faster.

Note: Your condition will seem to worsen before it gets better.

3. Engage in Non-strenuous Cardio

Cardiovascular exercises, like running, swimming, cycling, and brisk walking, can help clear out your lungs after quitting smoking.


Start with walking to expedite the detox process. Cardio exercises your heart and lungs, making you healthier, faster.

4. Use Saunas

Saunas have been employed in therapeutic regimens for respiratory conditions for an extended period. Certain studies indicate that saunas might provide benefits for individuals dealing with asthma, COPD, pneumonia, allergies, and COVID-19.


Saunas help stimulate blood flow and the body to expel mucus faster. I recommend a 15 to 20-minute session, three times a week. They can even help prevent cardiovascular issues.

With commitment, consistency, some NAC, Mullen, and cardio, an effective reboot of your lungs is achievable. This combo is like having a second chance at a healthier life.

The human body is amazing; though it can go through literal hell but with some tender love, it can always bounce back to normal.

Here is a in-depth video I put together on how to detoxify your lungs.
