I was born with Asthma because my french mother smoked 2 packs/day during her whole pregnancy! Yikes! In TCM, the mother of Lung is the digestive system, having a healthy diet can strengthen the Lung and boost the immune system. Today, I am free of asthma. I keep my immune system and Lung system strong with good foods, acupuncture and deep breathing exercises.

You’ll find everything you wanted to know about the TCM Lung, right below.
Enjoy 🙂

Keep Rocking it using TCM!
