The New Year, Resolutions, And Lung Health

A New Year Is A Great Opportunity

I know it sounds a bit clichéd, but the New Year really is a great opportunity to start doing something positive to help YOU – and quite possibly your loved ones – live longer, better, and more comfortably.  Some people might turn their noses up at a New Year’s Resolution, especially one made in a drunken stupor at ten seconds to midnight on Dec 31, but… if you take it seriously, and understand that there are many others out there doing the same thing (striving to improve themselves), then you won’t feel so alone in this effort.  Also, we as humans often need some sort of point to know when to start things.  New Years is often a good opportunity for this; a New Year, a new calendar, and often time off work, giving you the opportunity to read, learn and start preparing for your healthy change from a clean slate!

I am certainly making some Resolutions and sticking to them.  What about you?

Resolve To Make A Change

Change is often considered quite hard, but the fact is that change is one of the few true constants in our lives.  We keep getting older, people come and go, we change jobs, roles, clothes, even cells in our bodies – every day.  Change is always there, so we might as well embrace it, and make it work FOR us for a change! Yes OK, that is a rather circular statement – but it’s very fitting.

Change comes in two main flavors, like most things; positive and negative.  Negative change tends to happen regardless after we hit our mid 20’s; we get older, our bodies tend to become less highly-tuned, and we have to work harder to maintain them.   We have to put the effort in to effect positive change. It is always hard to star these thingst; there is a theory floating around that every person has an ‘activation energy’ to start something – akin to reaching the motivation needed to start on a new activity or course in your life.  This is always the hardest part; actually starting.  However once you get started, it gets easier.  You still need to focus on it, but it does come more readily as you go along.  Look back at all the skills you have mastered during your life so far, a common example is driving.  It was hard at first to learn, but eventually you did, and as you got better at it, it got easier.  Making a Resolution and following it is much the same.  Get past the start, and you’ll be well on your way, but that’s not all there is to know.

Knowledge Is Power

There is no truer statement.  Know what you are doing and prepare well before you start, and your chances of success skyrocket.  That is what our flagship product, The Complete Lung Detoxification Guide Series is all about; giving you the knowledge you need, and the preparation tips to maximize your chances of success with a straightforward lung detox, or a quit program and lung detox.  It’s all included.

Now the Guides themselves contain a wealth of information for you to utilize to make your Lung Detox quick and highly successful (several months rather than up to 10 years), as well as a mass of Quitting smoking help, Stress Reduction tips, and Motivation methods that should hold you in good stead as you make a grand, positive change in your life.  However, there are two new angles we are covering with our updates based on user feedback:

  1. We have added in a raft of worksheets, designed to help tailor your Lung Detox to your own situation.  We have included a ton of information in the Guides, not all of which will be relevant to your specific situation.  The worksheets will help you discover which ones will work best for you, and guide you on your personalized path to Lung Health.
  2. Some users have said there is so much good stuff in the Guide they were not sure where to begin!  Fair comment, so in the update we’re including a Step-by-step Success Guide/Wall Planner, that will help you draw the information from the four Guides together and make it work for you, with a minimum of fuss.

These are really exciting editions, and we know you’ll get a lot out of them.

6 More Days!

We are closing in on the release of the updated Guides for 2011!  Over the first six days of the New Year, we’ll have a series of New Year’s Resolution Lung Detox posts, all related to the new release and to starting the adventure to a healthier new you.  Check back tomorrow for the first topic in the series; Your Quit Date – Why It’s Important To Get It Right!

Until tomorrow,

Happy New Year, stay well, stay quit, and lung-toxin free.

Merry Christmas From The Team @ Lungdetoxification.com

A Christmas Message

On behalf of the team at lungdetoxification.com I’d just like to wish all our readers, customers and potential customers, affiliates and anyone willing to put the effort in to improve their health now and in the New Year, a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and all the best during this festive season and beyond.

Updates For The New Year

Speaking of the New Year, I did promise I’d let slip a few more details about what improvements we are planning for our flagship product, The Complete Lung Detoxification Guide Series, for 2011.  Now research into – and the understanding of – the mental and physical aspects of smoking addiction, best practice for lung detoxification and ways of improving motivation and reducing stress does not stand still, and neither have we.  Over the past year we have brought you a cornucopia of useful information in this very blog, and we’ve collected and sorted through a mass of hints, tips and methods in this field, to bring you the best updates for the past twelve months.  Now the posts here account for only a part of this new information, the best of which is being included in the 2011 version of our product.

For example, do you need motivation to get you ‘with the program’ and keep you focused on your goals of getting healthy and detoxifying your lungs?  If so, we’ve got that covered in our new ‘Motivations’ booklet.  Through a series of thought-provoking ‘question and answer’ exercises, you’ll explore what you have to gain from quitting, staying quit, and detoxifying your lungs, and with that kept firmly in mind, you chances of reaching your health goals will be that much better.

Our ‘Quit Smoking’ guide gives you a deeper understanding of why you smoke, why you took it up in the first place, and how knowing why you did something, gives you a much stronger basis from which to leave it in the past.  In this case, knowledge really is power.

Our ‘Lung Detoxification’ booklet is the meat and potatoes of the product.  Full of highly effective methods for getting that black tar and toxins out of your lungs, ramping up your immune system action, getting your chest open and working more effectively again, and as a flow on effect, improving the health of the rest of your body.

Rounding out the Guides, our “De-stress and Mental Fortitude’ booklet will give you a ton of tips and ideas to reduce your stress levels, and give you that chance to really kick the smoking habit, and to improve your lung detoxification experience.  Added to this, is a highly informative section outlining how your mind works, and how you can take control of it.  This synergizes nicely with the motivation section, and ties the four booklets together.

More To Come…

Keep an eye out for our New Year’s message, where I’ll let you in on the new additions to the ‘Guides’ product.  They really will help your chances of successfully following our guide program, and clearing your lungs of toxic cigarette tar – fast!

So again, Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays, and remember to keep us in mind as 2011 begins, as you realize you’ve overdone it a bit in the silly season, and it’s time to do something positive for your health.  It would be hard to do better than clear years of toxic smoking deposits from your lungs, and breathe easier in the New Year.

Until next time,

stay well, stay quit, and lung-toxin free.

Good News In Several Forms – New Lung Cancer Treatment And Lung Detox In The New Year

I have some good news. Firstly, it was announced this week in the Australian Herald Sun that researchers at St Vincent’s Hospital in Melbourne, Australia, have made a breakthrough in lung cancer research. They have identified a gene that makes squamous cell lung cancer tumors (that account for 30 – 40% of all lung cancers) grow and spread. From this discovery, they are working on a pill that will be trialed in humans next year (2011).

Associate Professor Gavin Wright, lead researcher of the team that is responsible for the discovery, has said…

This is possibly the most significant finding in lung cancer, full stop. The drug, which would be taken daily as a pill, could be standard treatment within three years. Hormones bind to a receptor on the FGFR-1 gene in the cancer cell, making the tumour multiply and spread around the body. If we block the FGFR-1 receptor on the cancer cell, it undergoes the normal programmed death that tired or diseased cells are supposed to.

Two drugs, which in the past had not been identified as useful, have now been shown to block the gene. The drugs have been shown to cause squamous cell lung cancers in mice to disappear in early trials. Human trials will be held in Melbourne at St Vincent’s and at the Max Planck Institute in Cologne, Germany. So if you are near either of these two places, and have been diagnosed with squamous cell lung cancer, you could do a lot worse than see if you can get into the trials.

This is indeed good news for some cancer suffers, however, here at lungdetoxification.com we are hoping you never get to the stage of needing these sorts of drugs. So to make it even easier for you to follow our comprehensive program for quitting and detoxifying your lungs, removing damaging tar and built up toxins from smoking so you considerably reduce your chances of developing cancer, we are adding new components to our product. This will initially be at no extra charge, and will help you with motivation to ‘stay the course’ of quitting and lung detox, and will make it even easier for you to follow the comprehensive information in our Guides.

So stay tuned to the blog, as I’ll be introducing you to the new additions to our product in the lead up to the New Year.

Until next time,

stay well, stay quit, and lung-toxin free.
