“For how can the servant of this my lord talk with this my lord? for as for me, straightway there remained no strength in me, neither is there breath left in me.” Daniel 10:17.
The lungs are constantly throwing off impurities, and they need to be constantly supplied with fresh air. Impure air does not afford the necessary supply of oxygen, and the blood passes to the brain and other organs without being vitalized. Hence the necessity of thorough ventilation. To live in close, ill-ventilated rooms, where the air is dead and vitiated, weakens the entire system.
It becomes peculiarly sensitive to the influence of cold, and a slight exposure induces disease. It is close confinement indoors that makes many women pale and feeble. They breathe the same air over and over until it becomes laden with poisonous matter thrown off through the lungs and pores, and impurities are thus conveyed back to the blood.” Ministry of Healing, p. 274.
The immune system needs oxygen in which to fight its battles to destroy germs, because when they engulf bacteria they produce certain poisons with the oxygen, which destroy the germs. When the body does not get enough oxygen, cancer cells thrive in that environment, and the immune system has more of a battle to fight those cells. Cancer is caused by a weakened immune system. We have cancer cells in our body all the time; however, the reason we do not get cancer is because the immune system is able to do its job effectively in engulfing them. Pure fresh air is very important. That means good air with negatively ionized particles from forests and oceans. Do deep breathing exercise daily (three times a day is best). Be sure to do this the first time early in the morning before breakfast. Take a deep breath to full expansion, hold, exhale, and hold that. Repeat this 20 times. This helps the circulation and gets toxins out of the system. Breathe fresh air while sleeping (open windows). Even on cold winter nights, keep window cracked. Air the bedrooms daily with the open windows. A good time is in the morning so that the room can warm up again if it’s cold. Do not smoke tobacco or breathe second-hand smoke. Avoid smog and all chemicals, cleaning solutions, solvents, paint removers, insect sprays, deodorants, hair dyes, disinfectants, pest strips, etc
