Move it in March!
#1 Sign of Good Health
Most people want good health. Rarely, do you meet someone that says, “I want to be sick and tired every day.” Yet, few know about a system we are going to talk about today- our lymphatic system. It has been said that if you want good health then you need to have a healthy lymphatic system.
What is the lymphatic system?
The primary function of the lymphatic system is to cleanse toxins and protect against harmful invaders. It works by carrying our body’s waste away from the tissues and into the bloodstream. It tackles toxins that are introduced to the body like environmental toxins, toxins in our food, in the products we put in our body and on our body. Medications are toxic and pretty much too much of anything can be toxic to our bodies.
This makes our lymphatic system our key detoxification pathway. Once the toxins enter the bloodstream, they are purified through the largest lymphatic tissue in the body, the spleen. The spleen is our main immune defense, fighting infection, holding a reserve of red and white blood cells and destroying worn-out red blood cells in the body.
Through lymph nodes and the lymphatic network, your immune cells can travel around fighting pathogens, such as bacteria and mold, and prevent disease and infection. This is why keeping your lymphatic system functioning properly is directly related to the overall health of the body: a stronger lymphatic system means a more resilient and reactive immune response and defense.
The problem is that, unlike blood, lymph does not have a pump. It relies on the relaxation and the contraction of the muscles and joints to move it. Your lymphatic system can easily become stagnant, especially when it becomes overwhelmed with toxic debris.
What if our lymphatic system is not healthy?
If our lymphatic system is not working optimally then we need to get it to start moving. It’s like we get the plumber to come in and unplug the drain or the garbage man to take out the trash. We must get the lymph moving.
Is there a drug to fix the lymphatic system?
According to Dr. David Williams no drug exists that has the ability to improve lymphatic flow. That means it is up to each one of us to start getting our lymph moving.
How do I know if my lymphatic system could use some work?
If you have any of these symptoms your lymphatic system may need some help. There are several ways you can help stimulate your lymphatic system. Dry Brushing, Rebounding, Drinking Water and the X’Tract Technique are just a few.
