The Lungs' Multifunction

Say hi to your lungs, smile.  Be grateful that your lungs allow you to inhale and exhale;  the lungs make you feel alive.


Our lungs, which are part of our respiratory system, have 3 major functions?

1. Supply oxygen to our blood.

The lungs, through the alveoli or air sacs, supply oxygen to the blood so that it can be delivered to our body system.

Imagine what we are doing with our lungs if we don’t protect it from the toxic chemicals from cigarettes and other air pollutants.

What would happen to our body?


2. Help remove waste products from our system.

Let’s go back to basics.

As we inhale, oxygen goes in and as we exhale, carbon dioxide goes out.

Imagine if we don’t keep our air clean. What kind of gasses do we put in our body system?


 3. Act as the body's defense system.

Have you experienced coughing?

Well, thank your body for that.

It’s the body’s way of expelling the irritants and toxic substances out of the body.

So it’s not really advisable to self medicate just to stop coughing.

Cough medicines like expectorants, mucolytics, and antitussives have different uses and effects on the body.

The key is not just to stop the cough but to address the reason why you are coughing.

So better talk to a medical expert if it’s not resolved within three days.


How amazing that the different body parts are made in coordination with each other.

Furthermore, the body has inherent ability to heal on its own.

Which is why I’m so inclined to use alternative treatments when it comes to taking care of myself.


One evening, I attended an online session of an Integrative Medical Doctor, answering all the inquiries of everyone participating in.

He said that applying Virgin Coconut Oil on the back lung area can be an adjunctive or complementary therapy for people with respiratory problems.

At that time, I was in quarantine with a high-grade fever and cough due to post-nasal drip. I was on prescribed medication at that time but we don’t have virgin coconut oil at home.

Good thing that I have OLEIA Oil on hand which contains virgin coconut oil.

Not only that.

It has essential oils, olive oil, moringa oil, virgin coconut oil, pomegranate seed oil and other premium oils, synergistically formulated by a Biochemist to allow fast transdermal delivery of healthy nutrients to the blood vessels and tissues of the body, helping the affected cells to heal and regenerate properly.

I applied OLEIA Oil Peppermint on my sinus area, back lungs, chest and throat to provide myself respiratory relief.

I’m so grateful for having this natural remedy to help my body get back to its normal function.
