“Breathe easy.” Even though many take this for granted in Beautiful British Columbia, some of us have lung conditions that compromise our ability to enjoy a nice, deep breath. Whether you suffer from asthma triggered by poor air quality, or you have had lung operations, or you are an ex-smoker, Omega Alpha’s trusted pair of oral supplements, “Resprit” and “Lung Flush”, can give you the boost you need to get through a bad pollen season or forest fire season.
If you are having trouble breathing, you should seek the advice of a physician ASAP or use a telemedicine service like CloudMD (available anytime at our in-store Kiosk, or on your phone, tablet, desktop) to assess whether you need to go to the Emergency. Omega Alpha’s “Resprit” and “Lung Flush” are 2 liquid herbal formulas based on Traditional Chinese Medicine theory that could help ease your breathing whether it is due to seasonal allergies or periodic air pollutants. Resprit’s soothing herbs such as chrysanthemum, peppermint, and Japanese honey suckle can nourish the airways and facilitate breathing. It can work quickly and, thus, is great for asthma sufferers and can be used in conjunction with prescription inhalers. The long-term effects of chronic inhalation of air pollutants is discerning. Lung Flush’s Luo Han Guo, skullcap, and mulberry leaf, among others, can help maximize the lungs’ capacity to detoxify the polluted air, and minimize the chances of toxins depositing in your lung tissues. It is meant for chronic therapy and can be used safely in an ongoing basis. Both herbal liquids can be used as preventative measures, as well. Resprit and Lung Flush are definitely options to look into if you are after a “one, two” punch to refresh your breathing. Both have been available for years at CLOVERDALE PHARMASAVE and PHARMASAVE STEVESTON VILLAGE. Come chat with integrative pharmacists, Christine Cheng and Fred Cheng, to see if these integrative supplements are viable options for you.
