Who Are the Key Players in Natural Body Detoxification?
4 of 5
Lungs are primarily involved with respiration. As part of the process, they also help maintain blood pH and expel chemical vapors under specific conditions.
One example is the sweet smell of a diabetic person’s breath in ketoacidosis, a severe condition. The excess ketones in the blood are partially expelled in the exhaled breath and can be picked up by their distinctly sweet smell. Keeping the lungs working well helps keep the detoxification processes working smoothly. In addition, conscious control of breathing patterns stimulates the immune system.
