Respiratory Clinic


Respiratory health is integral to our overall health and wellbeing. Quite simply we need our lungs to breathe! Our lungs deliver oxygen to our tissues every minute of the day. Having a chest infection or a chronic lung issue can be debilitating at least, scary and life threatning at worst. Air pollution, smoking, chemical off-gassing from housing and furniture, mouldy homes, lack of exercise, flu-like illness and industrial pollution can affect our lungs in a myriad of detrimental ways. Genetic tendencies along with environmental triggers can start an inflammatory cascade in our lungs which can be hard to stop. Lung function also affects our cardio-metabolic health as we have seen with Covid-19.

The good news is that many herbal remedies can help in treating lungs. We have a vast array of herbs that have among them the following actions:

  • Expectorant – herbs that promote mucous excretion
  • Bronchodilator – herbs that open the bronchial tubes
  • Antispasmodic – herbs that relax the bronchial muscles
  • Anti-inflammatory – herbs that reduce inflammation
  • Demulcent – herbs that loosen mucous
  • Antitussive – herbs that supress a cough
  • Antimicrobial – herbs that kill bacterial, fungi & viruses

Our Respiratory Clinic can help with the following:

  • Chest infections & cough
  • Tonsilitis
  • Asthma
  • Emphysema & Chonic bronchitis {COPD}
  • Quitting smoking

We do this with evidence based solutions and with a full and thorough treatment plan. There are many techniques that can help with strengthening lung function from breathing techniques, to relaxation techniques and forest bathing as well as exercise and fitness regimes that work for you. These lifestyle recommendations help you in the long term to improve lung function. Good nutrition is an intergral part of our treatment – from addressing deficiencies in key nutrients required for lung health as well as addressing general immune health at the same time. Avoiding respiratory illness is a beneficial approach to many chronic lung issues. It is often surprising to people that lung function can be modified with herbal, nutritional and lifestyle treatments.

In your appointment we go over your symptoms and diagnosis. We start to develop you a plan with recommendations based on up to date herbal research and your confounding factors. We initiate your treatment plan alongside your medications and write to your GP if needed. We start the journey of working together to improve your health outcomes.

A Respiratory Clinic consists of the following appointments:

  • 1 hour and 15 minute initial appointment ~ We go over your diagnosis and develop you a plan with lifetyle based treatments, dietary changes, supplementation and herbal remedies that can help your lung condition
  • 30 minute follow up ~ We define what works, assess your symptoms and add to the plan
  • 15 minute follow up ~ Once your main treatments are developed we set you on a path to maintain your lung health over the long term

Further ongoing follow ups can be booked depending on your health issues.
