“An apple a day keeps the doctor away.”
As the saying goes, having healthy habits does wonders for your lifestyle. However, many of us may find it challenging to recover from our vices and move forward. I’ve been in that situation and discovered that smoking had affected my health and the community in more ways than one. With proper guidance, support, and thorough research, I learned that even the briefest lifestyle changes could improve our lives.
In the UK, our government aims to reduce the number of smokers down to 5% of the general population. Smoking is dangerous, not only to the smoker but even to the people around them. People who smoke and those exposed to secondhand smoke are at risk and may develop severe lung and heart health conditions. Some of which are tuberculosis, bronchitis, lung cancer, and circulatory system diseases.
Even children as young as 15 years old smoke regularly and grow up to be long-term smokers. According to a survey, 81% of children have tried to smoke their first cigarette before the age of 18. This fact leads us back to the problem of accessibility. If people had access to professional support and guidance, less of the younger generation would be persuaded or pressured to smoke.
Together with the government and various organizations, we continue to make plans that will eventually create a smoke-free community. One of the best solutions is providing targeted products or services that encourage good lung health practices.
At Herbal Tea Therapy, we’ve been promoting the benefits of Mullein and how these aid respiratory ailments and tremendously improve cardiovascular health. In the morning, you could brew a warm cup of Mullein Tea and read today’s paper. The radiant green leaves and flowers of Mullein have been used as a natural medicine for thousands of years. If you prefer chewable tablets, we suggest the Mullein Capsules. There’s always another option in our shop as Mullein has been developed into all sorts of consumable products.
We can achieve a smoke-free community even with proper choices and active coordination. Then, we can trust the people around us and leaders to follow suit.
