Learn How to Dance With a Lymph
With cold and flu season here the lymphatic system sure is a popular subject. I don’t know about you, but it seems as if companies assume that we all know what a lymph is and how it works in the body. Let’s put on our dancing shoes and discover this magical system and how it dances with our health.
The lymphatic system literally dances with our bodies by filtering out good and bad bacteria that helps the body’s defense system against disease, colds and flu’s. I want to make this clear and simple for you. I created a list below.
- Lymph nodes may be found singly or in groups. And they may be as small as the head of a pin or as large as an olive.
- Groups of lymph nodes can be felt in the neck, groin, and underarms. Lymph nodes generally are not tender or painful. Most lymph nodes in the body cannot be felt and act as filters or traps for foreign particles.
- They are important in the proper functioning of the immune system.
- They are packed tightly with the white blood cells. The lymph nodes filter lymph fluid as it flows through them, trapping bacteria, viruses, and other foreign substances.
- If your lymphatic system is clogged, you will feel sick, sluggish, tired and perhaps sore in the areas where there are groups of lymph nodes such as the neck, armpits and groin areas.
- Our digestive tract is where the health of our immune system lives. About two-thirds of lymph is normally derived from the liver and intestines.
- Our lymphatic system helps clear proteins and large particles that are too large to be absorbed into the blood capillaries. Removal of proteins in this fashion is imperative; if that were not done we would die within 24 hours.
- If circulation is weak it tends to congest the liver. Having a congested liver definitely contributes to weight gain, frequent colds and flu’s and swelling of the arms and legs to name a few. Our liver is also associated with the emotion anger. If you feel this emotion on a regular basis, take a look at the health of your liver.
- By cleaning out your lymphatic system you will automatically help clean out your liver.
Can you see the picture I am painting? It is very important to be aware of the dance sequence of the lymphatic system. There is no central pump for the lymphatic system and is not a closed system, meaning it is always flowing slowly and sporadic. Therefore it is so important for you to consciously participate in this dance.
Dance moves that can save your life.
- Exercise can increase the lymph flow ten to thirty fold. Regular exercise is the most important factor in keeping this system healthy.
- Conscious breathing, meaning taking in breaths with focus and intent will move your lymphatic system nicely.
- Quality foods high in fresh vegetables with a balance of protein, fats, complex carbohydrates and some fruit daily will keep the lymphatic system very healthy.
- Daily consumption of fresh, clean water is also essential.
- Supplements are imperative in healing the lymphatic system as well as preventing it from clogging up.
