The relationship between sleep and lungs is closely linked, lungs are not good, and people with lung problems in sleep will have several different performances.

The lungs are located in the thoracic cavity, covering the five internal organs, the highest position, so there is a “Huagai” name. However, the lungs are directly connected to the mouth and nose and are very vulnerable to disease and external evil.

External evil invading the body, whether through the mouth and nose inhalation or skin invasion, is very easy to invade the lungs and cause disease. Sleeping well is directly related to the health of the lungs, therefore, in life, we must pay attention to protecting the health of the lungs and not neglect it.

People with bad lungs and lung problems will have three abnormalities when they sleep.

1. Coughing intensifies before going to bed

Lungs, the main breathing, breathing. If you breathe normally during the day and often cough at night, coughing very badly and getting worse, it means that the lungs have been damaged and need prompt attention.

2. It is easy to get up at 3:05 in the morning

At this time, the lung meridians are in order, and the body should enter a deep sleep. Once, often wake up at this time, indicating insufficient lung qi, or insufficient qi and blood.

3. Chest tightness and midnight suffocation

Sleep, chest tightness aggravated, and even choking wake up, alerting the heart and lung function, has been seriously impaired.
If the heart is adequate, the lungs are strong and the lung qi is sufficient, then the heart and blood can run properly. A good heart and lungs, in order to ensure good gas exchange, so that smooth breathing, and chest developed. If the heart and lungs are damaged, it will affect breathing and lead to chest tightness and suffocation.

Bad lungs, away from two kinds of breathing

1. Away from the “tobacco gas”

Smoking hurts the lungs, no doubt about it. Whether it is active smoking or passive smoking “second-hand smoke”, will damage lung health.

Cigarette in burning, nicotine, sulfur dioxide, and other harmful substances are inhaled into the lungs, and at the same time, the lungs will be attached to some dirty things, damage to lung health.

Therefore, people with bad lungs must stay away from tobacco poison gas.

2. Away from “grease gas”

In addition to smoking, kitchen fumes are also one of the reasons for the high incidence of lung cancer.

Benzo(a)pyrene is a strong carcinogen released from oil smoke.

A study found that long-term exposure to high-temperature fumes increases the risk of lung cancer by 2 to 3 times.
When frying, try to avoid high-temperature frying and choose a good range hood to minimize the fumes.
