The lymphatic system can be described as the body’s sewage system. In order for everything to function properly, it has to work well. It is responsible for getting rid of the body’s waste and if it malfunctions, the result is the building up of the toxic material inside of the body. According to the author Ann L. Gittleman, about 80 percent of American women suffer from sluggish lymphatic systems. There are several methods for the improvement of your lymphatic system’s functioning, and in this article, we shall discuss ten.
Breathing. Taking deep breaths helps the body transport the toxins to the blood which relieves the flow through the lymph system.
Regular movement. Exercise is excellent for the circulation and helps the lymph system flow more easily.
Water. Proper intake of water is crucial. This does not include other beverages that are too sugary to help you achieve the healthy level of hydration.
Fruit. Eat raw fruit on an empty stomach in order to boost the lymph function.
Vegetables. The green, leafy foods purify the blood, so make sure to consummate them more in your daily diet.
Nuts and seeds, unsalted.
Herbal teas. Choose between goldenseal, astragalus, Echinacea or any other, especially if you have an opportunity to consult with a herbal specialist.
Dry skin brushing. Use a natural bristle brush on your skin in circular movements, from feet to torso, and fingers to the chest. Do this before showering.
Hot and cold showers. Combine hot and cold showers for several minutes. The heat dilates the blood vessels and the cold causes them to contract. Note-Avoid if you are pregnant or have heart issues.
Massage. Massage can help stagnant lymph back into circulation. You can choose a special lymph drainage massage, aimed at better function of the lymph system.
