Stimulating Your Lymphatic System
Last but not least is keeping the lymphatic system moving optimally. The lymph system's main job is to move waste out of your body. It does this by pushing gravity through its vessels all the way to the heart area in the thoracic duct, where it dumps waste into the bloodstream.
The best ways to cleanse your lymphatic system are to exercise regularly, do daily deep-breathing exercises, and get massages once a month.
Also, skin brush your body dry for five minutes each morning before showering. Buy a vegetable fiber brush from your local health food store and brush with short strokes, starting from the bottom of your feet upward to your heart. Your lymph fluid is right under your skin, so you dont need to dig deeply into your skin with the brush. Gently stroke up your back and down your shoulders to the center of your chest. Softly brush down your neck to your heart and around your breasts into the center of your chest. Brush your fingers and up your arms into your chest. You'll feel your circulation increasing, and you may feel a tingling sensation. Skin brushing helps your skin to bring up new cell growth. After your shower/bath when your skin is still moist self massage coconut, almond or jojoba oil into the skin.
