The lymphatic system is an important system in the body, made up of fluids and tissues that flow throughout the body. Unlike the circulatory system, the lymphatic system does not have cardiac assistance to keep it moving. Therefore, it is important to make sure that you are giving your lymphatic system care so that it can release and clear fluids efficiently.
When the lymphatic system becomes congested, it causes the lymph nodes to swell, which in turn leads to pain throughout the body. In addition, it will cause your kidneys and liver to become toxic, as toxins and other harmful chemicals are not removed from the lymphatic system as intended. Consequently, you will experience hormonal imbalances, digestive issues, poor circulation, weight gain, and more.
1. Eat raw fruits
Eating raw fruit on an empty stomach is one of the easiest and tastiest ways to encourage detoxification as you are basically allowing the acids and enzymes in the fruit to have a detoxifying effect on the body. Lemon, lime, and grapefruit are some of the best choices, so feel free to add a few pieces to your morning water.
2. Drink water
The body needs plenty of water to filter the lymphatic system and remove any toxins and chemicals. It is recommended to drink water throughout the day to ensure proper hydration of the body.
Massage, especially deep tissue massage, helps move the lymphatic tissue by compressing the lymphatic system to release any impurities and make room for the beneficial nutrient. Thus, it keeps the system up and running.
Rebounding is the simple act of jumping up and down the trampoline to increase heart rate and gravity to stimulate the lymphatic system to detoxify cells.
5. Skin cleaning
Skin brushing is a simple technique that can be done before taking a shower by taking a brush and massaging the body towards the heart. This helps exfoliate the skin, remove any dead skin cells, and stimulate the lymphatic system.
6. Hot and cold shower
Switch from using hot water to cold. This change in temperature helps cause the lymphatic fluid to move.
It doesn’t matter whether it’s a short walk or intense exercise on a daily basis. In fact, every form of physical activity stimulates the lymphatic system and lymphatic fluids circulate in the liver and kidneys so they can be released and filtered out of the body.
Laughter causes you to take a deep breath, which in turn causes the circulation and lungs to work in synergy with the lymphatic system.
