Functions of the Lymphatic System
Lymphatic drainage therapy is one of the most effective ways to get your lymph system working properly. Among the various functions of the lymphatic system is its ability to carry waste away from the cells and bloodstream to the body’s organs of elimination. The system is comprised of veins and capillaries, with one-way valves, that contains a clear fluid called lymph. This fluid also surrounds cells throughout the body and collects cellular debris before draining it into the lymphatic system. Lymph carries the waste on a one-way path toward the heart and passes through many filters (lymph nodes) where special white blood cells attack and eliminate foreign molecules. (Source)
So what does this have to do with Lymph Drainage?
If you suspect, have the symptoms or have been diagnosed with adrenal fatigue, and want to help your body rid of toxins faster–I am glad you are here. Here is what I found:
The Best Way to Detox & Lymphatic Drainage Therapy
Dry brushing stimulates the body’s circulation and lymphatic systems. Corbin says that many naturopathic doctors use dry brushing to help with bloating because massaging the lymph nodes helps the body shed excess water and toxins. One of the immediate effects of dry brushing is smoother skin, but it can also help improve digestion, kidney function, and more.
Another effective ways to maximize lymph drainage — exercise. Walking, running, aerobics, and pretty much any exercise is a great way to get your lymphatic system going.
I like the Chi Machine and Rebounding: (See Chi Machine in menu tab)
Rebounding on a mini trampoline is perhaps the most efficient and forceful means of flushing the lymph while stimulating the immune system and defending against cancer and other ailments. During rebound exercise the forces of the upward and downward bounces – acceleration and deceleration – are vertically aligned on the same plane with gravity.It was proven by Albert Einstein in 1911 that the aligned forces of acceleration, deceleration and gravity result in an increased gravitational load. What this means for the body is that during rebound exercise cells adjust to the increased load by becoming stronger. Rebounding strengthens virtually every cell of the body at the same time and is equivalent to resistance training for the cells.
Diet , Juicing and Herbs
Another way to detox is by juicing specific vegetables, using herbal tinctures and of course detoxing herbs such as (dandelion root, milk thistle, wild indigo) and plants. One of my favorite herbal supplements– especially for us women– that I use and recommend is Ashwagandha.
A herb going to help me detox and balance hormones? Here is how it works:
Ashwagandha is a natural source of energy and vitality. Being a super powerful adaptogen, Ashwagandha supports adrenal and cognitive function by balancing cortisol release induced by physiological, mental, emotional and environmental stress. Hence, I love the way it makes me feel– especially after experiencing stress. Plus, this is one of the best herbs to help balance hormones. Overall a get a sense of well being.
Good News for Both: Men and Women
If you have been having issues in the sexual performance department, I have phenomenal news for you. Ashwagandha builds stamina– known for male sexual endurance–and supports adrenal health. How cool is this? A safe, effective super herb that you can both enjoy.
Ashwagandha has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine to promote longevity, energy, and vitality. Ashwagandha can be beneficial for men and women with a safe and standardized ashwagandha extract that provides active withanolides, alkaloids, and saponins.
