Spring Time is Cleanse Time!
(courtesy of Alo Health)
If you don't clean the water in the fish bowl, the fish will be swimming in it’s own waste. If your body is not efficiently eliminating waste products, your body is a dirty fish bowl. We want you to have a "clean fish bowl" so that your body can work efficiently! The lymphatic system is the sewer system of the body where waste products are carried away and eliminated. The fluid coursing through the vessels becomes congested and waste products accumulate when your stress increases and your activity level decreases. Pain and inflammation is a common result. Health can't be obtained or maintained with a clogged system!

WHERE do those waste products come from? First, the trillions of cells in your body eat nutrition and excrete waste, which is toxic. Next, everything you breathe, put on your skin or into your mouth has the potential of containing waste products. If you live in an industrial environment, for example, chemicals are released into the air, so it’s inevitable they get into your body through your lungs. Non-organic and processed foods contain chemicals or hormones that need to be detoxed by the body. Body products, like lotions, deodorants and perfumes, also contain similar ingredients that get absorbed directly into the bloodstream through the pores and can be even more toxic to the body as a result. (We’ll get to the good news in a bit; no need to get depressed!).

HOW does this system become congested? Unlike the circulatory system, which has a heart to pump the blood around, the lymph system has no pump. It’s called a “passive system.” Proper breathing, stretching, and activity provide the pumping action. Back in the days of planting and harvesting our food by hand and washing our clothes using a washboard, we created plenty of pumping action daily. Since we’re more sedentary now, it’s no wonder the fluid stays pretty stagnant in our vessels. Second, when we breathe correctly, our diaphragm actually moves up and down and provides a lymphatic pumping action. Proper breathing involves our abdomen moving in and out upon inhalation and exhalation. How many people do you know like to stick their bellies out when they breathe? Hence our lymphatic problems!

The great news (finally) is that we can successfully and easily decongest and clean this system through “physical medicine” techniques and supplementation. Some “physical medicine” techniques include daily lymphatic breathing, dry brushing, rebounding and lymphatic massage. Supplementation allows natural ingredients to get into the lymphatic vessels, liquefy the thickened fluid, and release toxins into the bloodstream. From there, it is eliminated from the body. That’s a beautiful cleanup process! Finding a practitioner who can suggest the right detox products will be helpful, to ensure safe and “sick-free” body cleansing. Some products may include enzymes or herbs, so checking with your doctor or pharmacist will also be important. Happy spring body cleaning!
