These days lot of people are more aware than ever before of the dangers of bad food and bad habits.
Yes, we all know that obesity is an epidemic, but folks are beginning to turn the tide on it and the diseases that come with it. One of the most important systems in your body is the lymphatic system.
The sewer system of the body is the lymphatic system. Gut associated lymphatic tissue, or GALT, accounts for 80% of our immune cells. These cells are stored and made in the thymus, spleen, appendix, bone marrow, and lymph nodes throughout the body.
Signs that there may be something wrong include swollen fingers and bloating, stiffness and soreness in the morning, constipation, swelling or soreness of lymph nodes, poor circulation, and brain fog.
How can we keep our lymphatic system healthy?
Drinking plenty of water helps your lymphatic system, as well as all your organs, function correctly. Sugary drinks and sweets overwork the system.
Here are some simple tips to get the lymph flowing again, incorporated from Ayurvedic science:
- Diaphragmatic breathing
- Diet is imperative
- Dry brush in the morning
- Drink lots of lukewarm water
- Iodine medication
- Red foods
