I lived in on the Big Island of Hawaii for almost three years.
Little did I know when we first moved there that I was doing some serious damage to my lungs.
In the story below I’m going to tell you how our lungs were getting damaged and I’m also going to tell you how I healed that damage just recently.
Most people don’t know this but the Big Island has a major source of pollution called VOG.
Yes it makes the skies hazy, especially on the western side of the island.
But the damage to the lungs will hit you in just about any place on the island if you live there long enough. I found out there is an epidemic of asthma and COPD on the island.
We have a friend of ours who was living there for 14 years end up being diagnosed with COPD and yet she didn’t smoke.
But if you’re in Hawaii, you’d be smokin da volcano daily.
Kilauea has been erupting daily since like 1983 or so. And the toxic fumes are really bad for the lungs.
Many a sensitive person has had to move off the island because of the poor air.
We even met such a person and heard many such stories.
After a while I started getting headaches when the SO2 and other pollutants started registering as high.
Karmyn ended up being diagnosed as having asthma “for the first time in her life.”
No doubt asthma caused by constantly breathing in air with very high particulate matter.
Andrew was coughing all of the time.
We thought he was sick.
We thought he had whooping cough.
But he didn’t. It was the really bad air. Once we got him an air filter for his room he stopped coughing the very next day.
At one point we had four different air filters for our house.
So when we moved from Hawaii last August we thought we’re going to be in the land of fresh air and no more headaches in Oregon.
But the very day we landed the air quality was as bad as it can possibly get. It was rated as hazardous to breathe.
That was because of forest fires.
When we got out of the plane the sky was completely whited out by what looked like clouds.
But it wasn’t clouds.
It was a thick layer of smoke from the big forest fires nearby.
On our first day back Karmyn was so sick she wanted to go to the emergency room.
Luckily we kept on driving and found a place with relatively cleaner air.
I remember screaming out in joy when I could finally see the sky for the first time since arriving in Oregon.
Turns out Hawaii cursed us.
Because now we were always getting headaches and no one else around us would even notice a problem with the air. So we moved to Arizona to get some better air.
We went to a town that specifically had good air quality ratings.
(Much of Arizona actually has horrible air.)
And it was much better than the air in Southern Oregon (when there are fires or in the wintertime).
But still there were days when we’d get headaches. Often I would get them on different days than Karmyn.
And I NEVER used to get headaches prior to moving to Hawaii. I’m just not “normally” susceptible to headaches.
Of course, for Karmyn it was much worse.
She would get quite nauseous and tired as well as getting headaches. In fact, I think she had other symptoms as well.
So then this summer we decided to take a trip back to Oregon and enjoy the summer months here.
At first the air was quite good.
Even better than what we were breathing in Arizona.
But then as usual forest fires started happening all around us. And Karmyn being very sensitive felt it first.
We consider ourselves high quality air monitors because we often seem to detect air problems better than the government sponsored air monitoring stations. And we know it because we get headaches and other symptoms.
A few days ago the air started getting really bad in the area of Southern Oregon that we were staying in.
Had I breathed that same air last year I’d have definitely been suffering with headaches.
And I know because we monitored the Oregon air quality map daily. Even mid to high levels of the green or “safe” level was enough to give me and Karmyn headaches. For Karmyn all it took was medium levels (actually even just moderately above zero was enough for Karmyn) of green and she was feeling sick.
But this summer I barely felt it even though the air was now in the yellow or so called “moderate” air quality.
For us anything in the yellow was already out of the question.
And driving through California is out of the question too. I have no idea how people can live in the horrible air in large parts of California.
Yet most people don’t even notice any problem whatsoever.
My father was able to breathe the bad Oregon forest fire air and never have any problems. And he’s be living here for like 20 years.
Again, we were damaged from our almost 3 years smoken da volcano in Hawaii.
So you may be asking… why did I stop suffering from bad air quality?
It’s because a little over two weeks ago I started doing the Youth Restorer Exercise daily.
Even though I’ve done the Youth Restorer Exercise on and off for years. I had barely done it since moving back here from Hawaii.
Then when I read that a doctor with a similar exercise program was having patients who reversed years of damage from cigarette smoking… well you could say it CAUGHT MY ATTENTION.
Then I found out he had patients who healed their asthma and even COPD by doing his exercise program.
It got me thinking that maybe this could help me with my headaches.
So I was really motivated to do the Youth Restorer Exercise daily so that it would increase the size of my lungs and also my heart at the same time.
And now to my utter surprise I can hang out it in what used to be horrible air for me and not have any headaches at all for hours.
Yes I did feel a little tiny headache briefly.
But it was nothing compared to what I would have felt if I were breathing the same bad air just a few weeks ago.
So if you’re one of those rare people (or someone who lived on the Big Island of Hawaii for too long) that gets headaches from bad air well here’s your solution.
Do the “Youth Restorer Exercise” at least 3 or 4 days a week and watch as your lung capacity increases so does anything and everything related to your body’s breathing apparatus. In fact, you’ll be able to detoxify a lot better as a result.
How about no more headaches.
No more tiredness and listlessness.
And no more nausea.
And if you have asthma or COPD well I’m pretty sure you’ll be feeling a whole lot better real soon.
The great news is that you can get a phree copy of the Youth Restorer Exercise as a special bonus during our Lightning Speed Fitness Program [Dime Sale].
But once the DIME SALE ends (and I’m close to ending it) I’ll be pulling that bonus from the LSFP members area.
In fact, the Youth Restorer Exercise is so incredible that I’m almost certainly going to turn it into it’s own product.
