View Full Version : sore lungs from smoke
06-14-2011, 09:56 PM
We have had smoke in the area from local brush fires. I had to work out in the heat and smoke today and by evening my lungs were really hurting. I finally recalled what I do for stuffy nose and the invigorating feeling it provides the lungs, and tried it. Within a couple minutes I began to feel relief.
I took about 2:1 of cinnamon/honey and felt much relief. Feeling much better as more time passes too.
You may want to give it a try if you are in range of brush fires, or ever overwhelmed by campfire smoke during this summer camping season.
I hope your lungs are feeling better today?

Haha, welcome to Flagler county, that's where I live! Smoke's been awful, we are having to cancel our Father's Day boat trip this weekend because of it! :( Hope we get some relief soon so you can enjoy your time here!

1:1 is a good ratio I guess. I just went heavy on the cinnamon that first timem for an extra kick at the start. A couple times a day helped around the clock. Today I mixed in some almond butter and cocao nibs and made more of a snack out of it. Lungs are mot hurting any more. We had measurable rain three days in a row and that has helped clear the air, and hopefully has done good for the fires.

I had no idea about cinamon and honey together. We had a forest fire last year that was affecting us, i could have done this trick.
Glad you are feeling better, thank you for sharing!
