Not everyone wants to live to be 100 because there are visions of wrinkles, pills, tubes, and adult diapers. There was a time when people lived a simpler life, lived long, and were healthy until their last days. Even if you don’t want to live to be a hundred but want to live longer and healthier you can do so with the help of your lymph nodes. The fewer toxins in the body, the better health you’ll have. Moving lymph through the nodes to be filtered by the lymph nodes will keep the cells in the body healthy and clean.
#1 REDUCE INFLAMMATION IN THE BODY
When there is inflammation in the body the nodes are working harder to fight off pathogens and remove toxins. Inflammation from injury is often temporary but illness, disease, and infection (More about Infections – TheMRSA.com) can cause chronic infection.
#2 DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Massage can encourage the lymph to move through the body. This will allow the nodes to filter any pathogens out more quickly and feed the cells. Special training is necessary to do this type of message correctly and effectively.
#3 DEEP BREATHING
Doing vigorous exercise can do this or it can be done doing deep breathing exercises or yoga. Oxygen is important to cellular health.
#4 PHYSICAL MOVEMENT AND PHYSICAL EXERCISE
The muscles that are used during exercise will stimulate the lymphatic vessels to push the lymph through the nodes so that they can filter the pathogens. While the lymph washes over cells and cleans them it will also make sure the cells have the necessary nutrients.
#5 LAUGH AND LAUGH SOME MORE
A good laugh from deep in the belly will cause the lymph to be pushed through the vessels into the nodes where it can filter out any debris by causing pressure on the central lymphatic vessels. If you want to help make people laugh, check out “20 Ways to Make People Laugh!”
#6 HAVE HEALTHY BLOOD VESSELS
Blood vessels are located along side of the lymphatic vessels so when the blood vessels pump blood through the body it stimulates the lymphatic vessels. Moving lymph prevents fluid buildup.
#7 AVOID STRESS
Stress can cause the lymph to move sluggishly through the lymphatic system and the lymph nodes. The chemistry can cause lymph congestion.
#8 DRINK PLENTY OF WATER
Since the lymph is a fluid that goes through the body, hydration is very important. Dehydration can cause the lymph to move slowly from node to node.
#9 EAT FOODS THAT ARE HIGH IN ANTIOXIDANTS
Antioxidants will help keep the body free of pathogens and reduce the debris in the body that must be filtered through the lymph nodes. A good diet provides more nutrients for the body to use to maintain cell health.
#10 INCREASE CIRCULATION IN THE BODY
Brushing the limbs with a dry brush in the direction of heart before a shower can encourage circulation. This should be done for about 5 minutes.
To find out more about lymph nodes can be found at TheLymphNodes.com. When lymph doesn’t move through the body toxins can build up in the cells and aren’t nourished properly. Healthy cells contribute to a long and healthy life. When inflammation is present it can cause a large number of health issues that can shorten a person’s life span and quality of life, which makes it harder to make it to 100 years old.
