Saddleworth Moor fire smoke a serious irritant for those with respiratory conditions

The smoke could seen and inhaled for miles beyond Saddleworth Moor. Today in my area of Heaton chapel, there was strong smell of charred undergrowth in the air. So I thought I would highlight the fact how such environmental pollution can be irritating to the lungs but in particular to those with existing respiratory conditions.

Take extra care on days such as today make sure you have your inhalers to hand if use them and wear a protective face mask if you find your self in a heavy smoke area.

A key lung herbs we use in Western Herbal Medicine are  Lungwort, Eucalyptus, Plantain and oregano. There are many more..
