(Post # 32) The Silent Lymphatic System

The lymphatic system is part of our immune system. It is composed of lymph vessels, nodes, glands and lymph fluid. It is always working in silence removing toxins, carcinogens, bacterias, viruses, pesticides that we get from foods, etc. It's one of our best tools against cancer and disease, but it needs to circulate, move and drain to work properly, and since it does not have a pump like the cardiovascular system, it relies on muscle contractions, body movements and breathing.

So how can we help our lymphatic system to work at its best?.

Here are some suggestions:

  • Exercise for at least 20 minutes a day or 10 minutes twice a day every day (walking, biking, swimming, working out or whichever activity you enjoy).
  • Drink plenty of clean water.
  • Get plenty of rest.
  • Eat healthy proteins, organic vegetable and fruits.
  • Reduce stress by practicing silence.
  • Get massage therapy.
