Rodger Murphree How to Create Healthy Lungs

How Do You Create Super Healthy Lungs?

Just how important are our lungs?

We don’t pay much attention to our lung health, but the lungs are one of the crucial organs in our body.

Whether you’ve only had a mild symptom or you’re still struggling with the long-term effects of COVID, you may have gotten present to the vital role your lungs play in your overall health.

So today, we’re going to explore what we can do to keep our lungs healthy.

Dr. Rodger Murphree is going to give us some insights as to improving our lungs and our breath.

You will learn:

    • Why “Survival Paradox” is keeping your body from completely healing
    • Use this sneaky technique to buffer the stress response in your body
    • The simple yet overlooked strategy to overcoming any illness
    • The quickest way to stimulate your parasympathetic system for deep relaxation


One of the ways that we can buffer the stress response in our system is to intentionally put our bodies in a parasympathetic state. This shifts your body from being in this constant stress state into a less stressed state.

There is nothing more powerful than the body's innate restoration system to actually help us to heal.

About Misty Williams
& Healing Rosie

Misty Williams spent years struggling to reclaim her health and vitality after surgery to remove an ovarian cyst, life-threatening complications and an endometriosis diagnosis sent her into a brain fog and fatigue tailspin.
Her doctor told her that the only remedies for her issues were drugs and surgeries, that her labs were “normal” and she could “google” to learn more about what was happening to her body.
At 35 years old, Misty embarked on the fight for her quality of life, enduring many more challenges on her road to healing, including an unexplained 45-lb weight gain, debilitating brain fog, fatigue, hypothyroidism, and premature ovarian failure.

She founded HealingRosie.com to provide high-performing women with the resources an community to successfully confront the unexpected chronic health issues that women often experienced as they age.
