Move it! That's what your lymph needs you to do in order for it to do it's job. Our lovely lymph is responsible for removing toxins & protecting against harmful invaders. But it does not have a pump so it's up to YOU to move.
The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that help rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. The primary function of the lymphatic system is to transport lymph, a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells, throughout the body. The lymphatic system primarily consists of lymphatic vessels, which are similar to the circulatory system's veins and capillaries. The vessels are connected to lymph nodes, where the lymph is filtered. The tonsils, adenoids, spleen and thymus are all part of the lymphatic system. (from Live Science website: www.livescience.com)
Good ways to move your lymph is walking, rebounding, drinking sufficient water, dry skin brushing, massage and of course, REFLEX THERAPY! I recently enrolled in a online course from Lone Sorensen's International Reflex Therapy school on performing lymphatic drainage on your face.
Using face lymphatic drainage is ideal for those on a weight loss program, while undergoing a cleanse, if you have an infection or are on medication, have cancer, edema, sinus problems and so much more. The special technique uses a light pumping action and is very relaxing as it invokes our rest & repair response (aka the parasympathetic system).
