North Central Washington has now experienced over a week and a half of poor air quality.  The term “poor air quality” doesn’t quite cut it though-especially for people living in Cashmere or Wenatchee, particulate counts have been high enough that it feels like living in a campfire.  All. Day. Long.

We all know the smoke is bad for us but how do we cope, other than donning masks and staying inside?  Cascade Wellness has tips for helping to clear the toxins that accumulate:

Consume lots of greens: 
– Kale, Swiss Chard, Collard Greens, Broccoli and sprouts.

Eat sulfur containing foods
– Onions, garlic, mushrooms, cauliflower.

Drink tea!
– Mint tea clears lung heat. Green tea helps move toxins out by supporting phase one and two detoxification.
