LungShield for lung health and protection

LungShield Herbal Tonic

There are two tonics for the lungs and respiratory system:
1. LungShield Tonic - for serious disease of the lungs, where the healthy cells are losing the battle against imbalances in cellular structure, overactive irregular cellular growth in the lung.
2. LungShield-COPD Tonic - for general health and protection of the lungs to improve breathing, detoxification, lung defenses, especially for COPD and similar conditions e.g. emphysema, asthma.


Dear Alan, thank you very much for your advice. I am now taking the COPD tonic after having eaten and it works a treat. I am going to order today the next bottle, because I really find it wonderfully effective, it lets me breathe easier.
Best regards, Carin


These tonics contain ... (sorry we cannot publish unlicensed claims) ... but you can send me an email and I'll give you the full list.
Specialist Medicinal Herbs to help improve lung function and health

It is important to strengthen your system to fight off imbalances in cellular structure, overactive irregular cellular growth in the lung; parasites, microbes, viruses and toxins.

LungShield (general tonic) can also be taken as a preventative at any time or for the support and restoration of healthy lung function, and improving your immune system.


Nitric Oxide to fight Abnormal Cells - latest research

Nitric Oxide (NO) is a “substance of interest” for slowing and even stopping tumor growth. Researchers are getting closer to discovering the specific conditions which can trigger NO-related and NO-inspired tumor suppression − making it potentially one of the strongest yet little-known cancer-fighters.

Nitric Oxide is a water soluble, free radical gas produced by the body’s own cells. It is critical to many key biological processes, including neurotransmission, immune system function, and vascular health.

NO is also a promoter of cell growth, which can make it both a cancer tumor promoter under certain circumstances, as well as a cancer suppressor. One of the most powerful ways it can help heal cancer is by encouraging the growth of healthy cells.

Although it’s unknown the exact “low point” at which NO may increase cancer tumor growth, what is clear is that Nitric Oxide at a high level is a tumor suppressor.

Being proactive with prevention by upping your NO levels naturally may help prevent and even heal cancer.

Studies have also found that increasing Nitric Oxide can help in:

reducing inflammatory response
boosting the immune system
reducing the impact of harmful bacteria, fungi, and parasites
improving exercise efficiency and endurance
reducing infection and healing time
improving bone density
Upping your consumption of L-arginine is likely the best way to increase Nitric Oxide production for cancer-fighting and overall health. Here are a few other tips:

Eat veggies that contain healthy nitrates such as organic greens and root vegetables.
Promote healthy gut and mouth flora.
Organic dark chocolate is an excellent source of L-arginine. Other good sources of L-arginine include organic turkey and chicken, pumpkin seeds, and spirulina.
Sleeping on a device such as a Biomat, which uses Far-Infrared light and negative ions to promote healing, is also said to increase NO levels and the restoration of healthy cells in the body.

Dear Alan, This LungShield works very good. My doctor recently said after a test that the lung function has become better.
With best regards,

Dear Alan,
Your LungShield Tonic definitely saved my father.
Thank you so much.

Dear Alan,
I would inform you that seven years ago I was diagnosed at my local hospital that I have COPD. I have several times over the years been hospitalised because of severe breathing difficulties, and I’m on a list of medication including three different inhalers.
Last week when I received my trial order of Lungshield it was very obvious to me from the very first teaspoon that there were some magical properties with the tonic, which was a wonderful golden clear liquid. During the first four days my breathing improved, and I had an overwhelming sense of well being combined with an improved mobility. I started coughing up flam and on one occasion I coughed up half a cup size lump of clear jelly which had a very firm consistency. One the third day several of my neighbours commented that I was walking a lot better than normal. On the fifth day the consistency of the Lungshield suddenly changed from a lovely golden clear liquid to a muddy brown full of grainy bits. It was then that I realised that I should have shaken the bottle to mix the ingredients. The dregs in the bottom of the black bottle didn’t agree with me although I continued to drink them, and I felt very unwell and I was eventually sick. So I learnt a very valuable lesson – shake the bottle.
To day I have started on my new bottle of Lunshield, and yes I made sure that the bottle well shook before taking the tonic. I can say that the feeling of well being has immediately returned and I’m looking forward to allowing the magic to happen.
Many thanks
Kind regards, Peter

General advice to consumers on the use of herbal remedies from the Medicines Healthcare products Regulatory Agency

From the website of the Medicines Healthcare products Regulatory Agency ( Department of Health, UK

• Remember that herbal remedies are medicines. As with any other medicine they are likely to have an effect on the body and should be used with care. • Herbal remedies may sometimes interact with other medicines. This makes it particularly important to tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking a herbal remedy with other medicines such as prescribed medicines (those provided through your doctor or dentist). • Treat with caution any suggestion that a herbal remedy is '100% safe' or is 'safe because it is natural'. Many plants, trees, fungi and algae can be poisonous to humans. It is worth remembering that many pharmaceuticals have been developed or derived from these sources because of the powerful compounds they contain. Any medicine, including herbal remedies, which have an effect on the body should be used with care. • Treat with caution any herbalist or other person who supplies herbal remedies if they are unwilling or unable to provide written information, in English, listing the ingredients of the herbal remedy they are providing. • If you are due to have a surgical operation you should always remember to tell your doctor about any herbal remedy that you are taking. • Anyone who has previously experienced any liver complaint, or any other serious health complaint is advised not to take any herbal remedy without speaking to their doctor first.


Pregnant/Breast-feeding mothers

Few conventional medicines have been established as safe to take during pregnancy and it is generally recognised that no medicine should be taken unless the benefit to the mother outweighs any possible risk to the foetus. This rule should also be applied to herbal medicinal products. However, herbal products are often promoted to the public as being “natural” and completely “safe” alternatives to conventional medicines. Some herbal ingredients that specifically should be avoided or used with caution during pregnancy. As with conventional medicines, no herbal products should be taken during pregnancy unless the benefit outweighs the potential risk.

Volatile Oils

Many herbs are traditionally reputed to be abortifacient and for some this reputation can be attributed to their volatile oil component.(6) A number of volatile oils are irritant to the genito-urinary tract if ingested and may induce uterine contractions. Herbs that contain irritant volatile oils include ground ivy, juniper, parsley, pennyroyal, sage, tansy and yarrow. Some of these oils contain the terpenoid constituent, thujone, which is known to be abortifacient. Pennyroyal oil also contains the hepatotoxic terpenoid constituent, pulegone. A case of liver failure in a woman who ingested pennyroyal oil as an abortifacient has been documented.


A stimulant or spasmolytic action on uterine muscle has been documented for some herbal ingredients including blue cohosh, burdock, fenugreek, golden seal, hawthorn, jamaica dogwood, motherwort, nettle, raspberry, and vervain. Herbal Teas Increased awareness of the harmful effects associated with excessive tea and coffee consumption has prompted many individuals to switch to herbal teas. Whilst some herbal teas may offer pleasant alternatives to tea and coffee, some contain pharmacologically active herbal ingredients, which may have unpredictable effects depending on the quantity of tea consumed and strength of the brew. Some herbal teas contain laxative herbal ingredients such as senna, frangula, and cascara. In general stimulant laxative preparations are not recommended during pregnancy and the use of unstandardised laxative preparations is particularly unsuitable. A case of hepatotoxicity in a newborn baby has been documented in which the mother consumed a herbal tea during pregnancy as an expectorant. Following analysis the herbal tea was reported to contain pyrrolizidine alkaloids which are known to be hepatotoxic.

Breast-feeding mothers

A drug substance taken by a breast-feeding mother presents a hazard if it is transferred to the breast milk in pharmacologically or toxicologically significant amounts. Limited information is available regarding the safety of conventional medicines taken during breast-feeding. Much less information exists for herbal ingredients, and generally the use of herbal remedies is not recommended during lactation.

Paediatric Use

Herbal remedies have traditionally been used to treat both adults and children. Herbal remedies may offer a milder alternative to some conventional medicines, although the suitability of a herbal remedy needs to be considered with respect to quality, safety and efficacy. Herbal remedies should be used with caution in children and medical advice should be sought if in doubt. Chamomile is a popular remedy used to treat teething pains in babies. However, chamomile is known to contain allergenic sesquiterpene lactones and should therefore be used with caution. The administration of herbal teas to children needs to be considered carefully and professional advice may be needed.

Perioperative use

The need for patients to discontinue herbal medicinal products prior to surgery has recently been proposed. The authors considered eight commonly used herbal medicinal products (echinacea, ephedra, garlic, ginkgo, ginseng, kava, St John’s Wort, valerian). On the evidence available they concluded that the potential existed for direct pharmacological effects, pharmacodynamic interactions and pharmacokinetic interactions. The need for physicians to have a clear understanding of the herbal medicinal products being used by patients and to take a detailed history was highlighted. The American Society of Anaesthesiologists (ASA) has advised patients to tell their doctor if they are taking herbal products before surgery and has reported that a number of anaesthesiologists have reported significant changes in heart rate or blood pressure in some patients who have been taking herbal medicinal products including St John’s Wort, ginkgo and ginseng. MCA is currently investigating a serious adverse reaction associated with the use of ginkgo prior to surgery. In this case, the patient who was undergoing hip replacement experienced uncontrolled bleeding thought to be related to the use of ginkgo.
