We put our bodies through so much and we're exposed to so many damn toxins on the daily… don't even get me started! It's almost impossible to avoid the toxin load with everything going on in the world right now.
Luckily our bodies work overtime to filter out all the garbage, but who do we have to thank? Our trusty lymphatic system! The lymphatic system is the very tool that's protecting us from toxins.
Think of the lymphatic system as the "piping system" of our bodies. A clog in your lymphatic “drains” can lead to the accumulation of toxins which the body initially tries to remove.
The lymphatic system practically runs through the entire body! The arms, legs, abdomen, colon, intestinal tract, stomach, pancreas, liver, thyroid, neck, brain (in certain areas), jaw, back and even the back of the head.
It's only fair we take some extra time to help the body get rid of the toxin load and clear the pipes.
Unlike your blood, your lymph does not have a pump. Your lymphatic network relies on the contraction and relaxation of the muscles and joints to keep things flowing. YOU are the pump. The lymph system needs help!!!
Here are 5 Ways To Help Our Lymph System Expel Toxins:
1.Dry Brushing. Dry brushing aids the removal of toxins that have built up on our skin. Dry brushing involves using a coarse brush to gently be moved along the skin in the direction of the heart. This technique boosts lymph flow by stimulating sweat glands and supporting circulation below the skin.
2.Drink lemon water. The lymphatic system is primarily composed of water and must be hydrated to function at the highest level. Drinking purified and mineralized water and water with antioxidant extracts such as lemon water is an excellent detoxification strategy to push toxins from the body.
3.Jump on a rebounder. A fun way to exercise is by bouncing on a mini trampoline (called a rebounder) which is often used in sports therapy to help athletes heal from injuries. Lymphatic fluid is completely dependent on physical exercise to move, and the up-and-down rhythmic gravitational force caused by jumping on a trampoline causes the lymph system’s one-way valves to open and close, increasing lymph flow.
4.Practice Yoga. Yoga works in multiple ways to increase the flow of the lymph, relieving congestion and encouraging its detoxification. To start, inversions such as handstands, headstands and shoulder stands, and even placing the legs up the wall, reverse the effect of gravity. This helps to drain the lymph towards the heart, escalating the rate in which it’s cleaned and filtered.
5.Infrared Sauna. This simple treatment is one of the best ways to naturally detox the body and support an overall healthy immune system. Infrared sauna therapy works by increasing sweat production so more toxins are removed from the tissue. It can also improve blood flow and help with tissue healing, which is critical for lymphatic health.
6.Anti-Inflammatory Diet. The more nutrient-dense your diet, and the fewer chemicals entering your body, the better your lymphatic system can work. Foods that put stress on the digestive, circulatory and immune systems include common allergens (like dairy products, eggs, gluten, soy, or nightshades, for example), low-quality animal products, refined vegetable oils and processed foods that contain chemical toxins.
7.Massage.Massage improves immune function and can relieve symptoms of chronic fatigue and pain. Massage techniques promote the flow and drainage of lymph through the body. We love doing daily lymphatic drainage massage using our BFF tool that uses sonic vibrations to really get things flowing.
8.Alternate hot and cold in your shower. Lymphatic vessels contract when exposed to cold, and dilate in response to heat. A hot and cold shower is a type of hydrotherapy that uses the properties of water temperature and pressure to move stagnant lymphatic fluid, increase circulation, boost immune function and metabolism.
9.Herbs. Herbs are a great source which we can utilize to detoxify the lymphatic system and remove toxins. Some of the most popular herbal treatments to help the lymphatic system heal include the following: Manjistha tea, Milk Thistle, Ginger Root, Garlic, Red Root and many more.
10.Avoid tight-fitting garments. It's best to avoid tight fitting garments such as underwire bras to prevent any unnecessary restriction on lymphatic vessels. Lymph nodes are highly concentrated around the chest region to drain fluid from breasts, arms, and the chest.
