The natural lung cleanse protocol below is designed to cleanse the lungs of excess mucus, phlegm, and toxins, with the best lung cleansing foods, drinks, juices, recipes, and lung cleansing herbs.
The lung cleanse protocol is based on safe traditional medicine that has been practiced for centuries as well as modern science, which supports it.
How To Clean Lungs
You can clean your lungs and support the health of your respiratory system with these easy steps.
The protocol lasts between 1 and 5 days.
Lung Cleanse Drinks
Many studies were able to find a strong connection between certain foods to lung and respiratory health . For this reason, many researchers and health experts recommend to include lung cleansing foods as a part of the diet.
The lung cleanse drinks are designed to help you get many of the lung cleansing foods you can make at home. You can see the amount of vitamins, minerals, and lung health nutrition you get by looking at the links below.
As a part of the lung cleanse 1-5 day protocol, we recommended to drink at least one of these lung cleansing drinks every day: juice, smoothie, tea.
Lung Cleanse Juice
The lung cleanse juice is the first thing you need to do to cleanse your lungs. Many lung cleansing foods that have a long history of traditional use that is supported by modern science are included in this juice.
Out of these nutrients, the juice is high in iron (60%) and magnesium (35%) that according to research, may play a key role in the health of your lungs.
See the complete recipe.
- There are carrots, apple, kale, romaine lettuce, cucumbers, pomegranate, ginger root, and raw local honey.
- If you drink first thing in the morning, you can drink up to two times a day. You should drink the juice on an empty stomach if you didn’t eat solid foods that day.
Lung Detox Smoothie
Another potent lung cleansing drink we recommended to include in the lung cleanse is the lung detox smoothie. The consistency of the smoothie is much thicker than the lungs cleansing juice, which many people enjoy.

The smoothie provides you with much more fiber than the lung cleanse juice. Around 50% of the recommended dietary allowance (RDA). As research suggests, a diet rich in fiber-containing foods may play a role in improving lung health .
In addition to its high fiber content, the lung detox smoothie also provides your body a few unique lung cleansing nutrients with potent lung detoxifying properties such as pineapple bromelain, apple quercetin and berries anthocyanins .
- The ingredients are water, lettuce, fruit, and an ingredient that tastes like stevia.
- If you drink first thing in the morning, you can drink up to two times a day. You should drink the smoothie on an empty stomach if you don’t eat solid foods that day.
Lung Cleanse Tea
The Lung cleansing tea recipe is designed to support normal lung and respiratory system function, using natural lung cleansing foods and herbs you can easily find at your local store.
See the complete recipe.
During the winter, the lung cleansing tea is one of the most popular home remedies to clean lungs. There are two versions of the tea you can make, the original and the golden milk with coconut milk, based on the many suggestions and comments we have received over the years.
- The ingredients are water, ginger, root, turmeric, black pepper, cinnamon, coconut milk, raw local honey, and stevia.
- If you want to clean your lungs and support your respiratory health, you should drink the tea whenever you want during the day.
Lung Cleansing Herbs
Some lung cleansing herbs have unique properties that can help improve the lung cleanse.
Peppermint (mentha piperita) for example, has a long history of traditional use to support respiratory health. A few studies suggest that peppermint essential oil can improve respiratory function, increase brain oxygen concentration, and may help to relax the airway and bronchial smooth muscle tonicity [4,5].
Plantain leaf (Plantago major) is another example of a popular lung cleansing herb, that is commonly used to treat respiratory diseases . Research data suggests that Plantain leaf may have a safe and effective anti-inflammatory effect against upper respiratory tract infections .
If you want the best results, always get your lung cleansing herbs from a trusted source. You want to make sure that the fresh herbs you use are high quality and suitable for the purpose of cleansing and detoxifying lungs.
None is the lung cleanse herbal spray we use in our lung cleanse protocol.
- Lemon Balm leaf, Plantain leaf, Chapparal leaf, Elecampane root, Lovage root, and Menthol are ingredients.
- If you follow the directions, you can spray into mouth, inhale deeply and then swallow the remaining liquid. During your lung cleanse, you should repeat three times daily.
Breathing Exercises & Lung Cleansing
The connection between exercise and better lung health is well known and supported by the medical community [8, 9]. What is even more interesting, is that the research data also suggests that a simple breathing exercise such as balloon blowing, can increase the respiratory muscles strength and promote better lung function .
This is important to us. Most people don’t breathe deep enough, that’s according to health experts. During the lung cleanse, we highly recommend addressing shallow breathing because it is very common.
A few minutes of deep breathing can be done two to three times a day.
- There is a good flow of fresh clean air in a quiet place.
- Close your eyes, sit comfortably and focus on breathing.
- Allow the air to fill your lungs and stomach while slowly inhaling through your nose.
- Slowly exhale until all the air is gone.
- For one to two minutes, repeat.
Many of our members like to use Dr. Group’s Allertrex Lung Cleanser when they complete this exercise.
Lung Cleansing Foods
The research data on foods for lung function and respiratory health is quite remarkable. Certain foods have the ability to cleanse your body and lungs. The diet you eat can help you breathe better, repair lung damage, and decrease your risk of lung disease.
You don’t have to eat all of the lung cleansing foods. It’s best to choose the ones you enjoy the most, because they will agree with your body and taste buds.
You can find the list of common foods for lung health at your local store.
- Fruits: apples, berries, pineapple, pomegranate.
- Cruciferous vegetables: cauliflower, cabbage, kale, garden cress, bok choy, broccoli, brussels sprouts.
- Other veggies: carrots, tomatoes.
- Spices: turmeric, garlic, ginger.
- Sweeteners: raw local honey.
To help you choose the best foods for your lung cleanse, we wrote an entire guide on this topic. We also included all the relevant science and suggestions.

Foods That Are Bad For The Lungs
During the lung cleanse, we highly recommend to limit problematic foods that are known to increase mucus production or to introduce more toxins into your body.
Large meals and over eating can stress your lungs and body, so try to avoid them.
During the lung cleanse, you want to limit or avoid some of the main foods.
Excessive milk consumption can increase the production of mucus in the respiratory tract . According to the U.S. national library of medicine, 65% of the human population has a reduced ability to digest lactose after infancy .
During the lung cleanse, we highly recommend to eliminate all dairy products.
Allergens such as peanuts, tree nuts, soy, dairy, eggs, wheat, gluten, fish, and shellfish can cause a response in the body that can affect the respiratory system.
If you suspect you have a reaction to these foods, we highly recommend that you eliminate them from your diet.
Sodium & Salt
If you notice that you have water retention issues, you may want to switch to a healthier natural salt such as himalayan pink salt and reduce the amount of salt that you consume.
