It is important to cleanse and detoxify your lymph glands for overall good health. Keeping the lymphatic system functioning properly should be a part of your regular health regimen.
Our bodies collect a large number of toxins daily from food, water, soap, lotions and even the air we breathe. As the toxins are taken into our bodies they move through our lymph glands, causing toxic overload. Our lymph glands are most important because they cleanse our blood. Since our lymph glands do not have a pump like the heart it is up to us to help the glands clean out the toxins. This is why it is beneficial to cleanse the lymph glands frequently.
Here are a few quick and easy methods you can use to stimulate the glands:
A method called “dry brushing” is an excellent way to exfoliate your skin and cleanse the lymph glands at the same time. Dry skin brushing stimulates the lymph glands and helps them drain the toxins into the colon to be expelled.
You will need a natural bristle brush which can be purchased in the cosmetic department of most retail stores for about three dollars. The dry brushing method only takes a few minutes and is best performed in the morning before your shower.
You will be using your brush “dry” and beginning at your neck, sweep the brush across your skin under the ears, down the neck and onto your shoulders. Brush up both sides of your arms from the hands to shoulder. Brush gently, across and down your chest to your abdomen and as much of your back and buttocks as you can reach. Brush up from your ankles to your thighs both inside and out and end by vigorously brushing the bottoms of your feet and around the toes.
After brushing you can shower or relax in a tub of warm water with Epsom salts or apple cider vinegar added to help cleanse and detoxify your skin through your pores.
Jumping or Rebounding
You can also have fun while cleansing your lymph glands by jumping rope, doing high-impact aerobics or bouncing on a mini-trampoline, also called a re-bounder, for at least ten minutes a day.
Mini trampolines or re-bounders can be purchased at sport shops and retail stores in the sport equipment section for about thirty dollars. They are safe if used properly and easier on joints than jumping on a hard surface.
Dr. Houston’s Method
According to Hanna Kroeger there is another simple way that she calls, “Dr. Houston’s Method,” to flush the lymphatic system. It can be performed at anytime is as follows:
“Spread the fingers of your left hand and place on the back of your neck. Cup your right hand and place it under your left armpit. Hold this position for three to five minutes.”
When the lymphatic system is functioning properly, other bodily systems work better and you will feel more energetic. A healthy lymphatic system helps your immune system, aides in the flushing of toxins from the body, helps reduce cellulite, increases circulation, helps digestion and improves the functioning of the nervous system.
