More about the Lymphatic System
The Lymphatic system transports lymph, a fluid which contains infection-fighting white blood cells all around the body. It also helps the body to eliminate toxins, waste and other unwanted materials from the body through its network of tissues and organs. The primary organs involved in this detoxing are the Thymus, Spleen, Tonsils, and Adenoids, and the multiplicity of lymph nodes around the body.
Winter Lymphatic Detoxing
At this time, we will need to give our Lymphatic system a boost in preparation for the Winter months ahead. We can support our Lymphatic system by doing activities such as Qi (Energy) cultivation exercises, bouncing and tapping, dry skin brushing, to ensure that we are keeping lymph flowing throughout the body.
Dry skin brushing allows us to stimulate the surface of our skin to improve the circulation of lymph which may be sluggish. When this system is not working at its best, toxins are likely to accumulate, and the white blood cells cannot be effectively transported to key areas of the body. This can leave us with a lowered immune system, making us vulnerable to getting sick.
Here are just a few activities to get your started!
3 Ways to Detox your Lymphatic System
1. Try Lower Abdominal Breathing
When we don’t breathe deeply, and from the lower belly, we can starve the body from oxygen, and this impacts greatly on the circulatory systems. Lower Abdominal breathing engages the whole diaphragm, and gets the muscles contracting, which in turn, starts stimulating the lymphatic system. You may want to attend one of my Mindfulness online classes to learn how to breathe fully as this also helps to reduce the stress response, which is linked to over-toxicity, hormonal imbalances and congested lymphatic system.
2. Take an Epsom Salt and Rose Geranium Oil Bath
Epsom salts is a great way to assist your lymphatic system. Just run the bath and drop half a cup of Epsom salts in. With its high levels of Magnesium which is a mineral with anti-inflammatory properties, and the Mineral salts, it has been known to help stimulate lymph circulation in your body. You may also wish to speak to an Essential oil practitioner, and add a 3-4 drops of Rose, Clary Sage or Frankincence oil.
3. Dry Skin Brushing
Dry skin brushing is an effective way to stimulate the lymphatic system, as well as your overall circulation. You can purchase a natural body bath brush and, starting from your feet upwards, start brushing your body in upwards strokes while the skin is dry, and before a bath or shower. Stroke towards the direction of the heart, and work in a clockwise direction when brushing the stomach area. After your bath or shower, apply a natural body moisturiser with a few drops of a soothing essential oil to soothe the skin. Watch the skin glow after a few weeks of doing this.
