Clean Up Your Lymphatic System

lymph system

Your lymphatic system rids your blood of waste, it is an extremely important process. Without it, your cells, tissues and organs would be overloaded with toxins and eventually the body creates a weakness in the immune system and the next thing you know you have a disease that can be quite serious . The only problem with the lymphatic system is that it doesn’t have its own pump; you have to stimulate its circulation. Here’s how:

1. Use a dry body brush: Start with your arms and legs and use long strokes, brushing towards your heart. Aim for five minutes before your morning shower.

2. Bounce on a rebounder: Vertical motion exercise smoothly opens and closes the lymphatic system’s one-way valves. Jumping on a rebounder, even gently, increases lymph flow by as much as 15-30 times.

3. Try lymphatic massage: This stimulates the lymph nodes and promotes fluid movement in lymph vessels.

4. Practise deep breathing: It oxygenates the lymphatic system, and moves fluid through it.

5. Eat clean: Foods for a top-notch lymphatic system include organic fruits and veggies, especially leafy greens for their detoxifying chlorophyll content. Essential fatty acids – found in flaxseed oil, spirulina, walnuts, almonds and avocadoes – are necessary for proper lymphatic function. Avoid preservatives, artificial sweeteners, refined grains, excess sugar, chemicals, and processed foods.

6. Drink up: The lymphatic system requires a constant supply of fluid, so chug a lug!

7. Move your ass: When your muscles move, they massage the lymphatic system and promote the flow of lymphatic fluid.

Be Healthy Be Beautiful – Hand Pressure Points

I found this book called “Zone Therapy” many years ago in fact the first book which is the one I have, was printed in 1990 and I have referred to this book many times.
I was watching a program on hand massage and remembered how helpful and easy this type of pressure point massage is.
Massage of the hands has the advantage of being inconspicuous and you can give yourself a Zone Therapy workout in public without anyone noticing.
When you are treating the hands use the thumb of one hand to treat the other hand. Start massaging the hand at the tip of the thumb and work with pressure all over it, including the sides and the back. Work down into the webbing g part of the thumb also.
Be systematic and leave out none of the pressure points in the chart.
Work for 10 seconds on each point. Always return to any sore spots.
Do the same with the fingers. Work over each finger from the tip, applying pressure to underneath, sides and the back and down to the webbing of each finger.
Remember if you apply pressure over the top joints of your thumbs and fingers it will give the entire body a good toning up.
Pressure over the fingers will help prevent many conditions. A daily work out with the fingers and toes (show that another day) will help stimulate the nervous systems and build up the nerve strength in the body. Help relieve many symptoms such as nausea, travel sickness also it is said to be good for neuralgia, neuritis or cramps and circulation.
The author of this book and many other books says “Zone Therapy help keep a mental image of the youthful, beautiful healthy you.

Say to yourself ” I will succeed” and your life will be a daily miracle.

This chart is of the right hand. The left hand is duplicated. 

Once you have done the right hand with your left thumb and fingers repeat on your left hand with right thumb and fingers
