Lung Health Immunity – An interdisciplinary discussion with Craig Williams LAc and Dr. Christie Smirl.

Today I had a great multidiscipline discussion with Craig William LAC on the topic of pulmonary health and longevity. We presented important concepts surrounding lung health from Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medical models. This presentation also tied together relationships between lung health, the immune system, food as medicine, zinc, vitamin b3, agni, digestion, rasayana and  breath practices.
