What are holistic herbs?

Herbal herbs have a place in modern medicine, as demonstrated by their wide use, especially in integrative and holistic practices. Herbal supplements are derived from plant sources and can come in a variety of forms. You can get herbal medicines in the form of:

  • Powders
  • Pills
  • Tinctures
  • Teas
  • Topical creams or lotions
  • Bath additives

People have relied on herbs as medicine for thousands of years. Although modern pharmaceuticals are typically the go-to treatments for various conditions and ailments, herbal medicines offer a natural alternative. Still, you should talk to a medical professional before using herbal medicine to treat or manage any medical condition. 

How do holistic herbs fit into pulmonary rehabilitation?

PRO Mizizi-Group specializes in pulmonary rehabilitation and stress relief. You might be surprised to learn that holistic herbs can play an important role in pulmonary rehabilitation. PRO Mizizi-Group often recommends them alongside breathing exercises, medications, and personal training.

PRO Mizizi-Group evaluates your health and wellness during an initial consultation and helps you set goals for rehabilitation. Many holistic herbs can improve symptoms of chronic lung conditions like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). 

While they shouldn’t take the place of pulmonary rehabilitation or any necessary medications, holistic herbs can complement your treatment and improve your breathing due to their anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and immune-support properties. 

You can get the best possible results from taking holistic herbs when you use them within a broader pulmonary rehabilitation plan that includes breathing techniques, assistive devices, and personal training. 

Which herbal medicines benefit lung health?

There are many herbs that people rely on to improve their pulmonary health and function. By taking certain herbs consistently, you can lower lung inflammation and reduce airway obstructions that prevent you from breathing well.
