Yes, being unaccustomed to the air makes you less tolerant of it. For the same reason you can't throw a fish from a pond into the sea.
Take my advice and you should feel much better.
I'm sure there is an herb merchant somewhere near your house who can procure some Solomon's Seal for you, and get the highest proof rice wine you
can find. Use about a pound or two of Solomon's Seal (no more than two pounds), and soak for at least 3 months in a cool, dry place (in a closed jug
or barrel). You may be able to just buy the wine infusion, I'm not sure. In the meantime, try the bird's nest. It works wonders for the lungs.
I KNOW you can find somewhere to buy bird's nest soup. Just make sure you get it at a nice restraunt, or make it at home, and don't be fooled by
imitations. Get Golden Thread bird's nest, (it's a grade, not a brand name), soak for maybe 20-30 minutes in clean water - remove any debris on the
surface, like feathers and what not. Rinse and strain, then simmer in a double boiler for about 3 hours (with more clean water). If you like sweets,
make the soup with some brown sugar, if you like savory, add a little soy sauce and maybe some sliced, cooked chicked.
Rabbit with soy, wine, and ginger will also build vitality, cook in an earthenware pot for a couple of hours.
