Signs of a congested #lymphaticsystem
Some of the signs that lymphatic fluid is not moving effectively and that #toxins
may be building up in your body are:
Puffiness in eyes or face
in the fingers (tight rings) or ankles
or holding on to water
Skin issues, such as dry or itchy skin
Soreness or stiffness upon waking
Weight gain and extra belly fat
Breast swelling or tenderness
A sense of fogginess in the brain
Increased colds or flu
Here are some easy activities that you can incorporate into your day to help “move” and drain lymph, so that it doesn’t accumulate in your body’s cells. The best activities to encourage lymph drainage are movement, deep breathing, rebounding, #massage
and skin brushing, .
To optimize lymph flow, it is important to incorporate a few other lifestyle changes:
Eat a clean, whole foods diet, as organic as possible, and drink lots of clean water each day to continually flush toxins.
Limit tight fitting clothing that may cause redness or indentations on the body. Remember, the lymph vessels sit directly beneath the skin surface, so they are easily compressed. According to lymph drainage therapists, women need to limit their time in all bras—regular, underwire, or sports bras—as these impede the flow of lymph. Go braless as much as possible and never sleep with a bra on. The arm, breast and chest area all drain into the armpit lymph nodes, so excessive pressures here will restrict drainage and lead to a buildup of toxins.
Use cosmetics and skin care products that are free of chemicals and perfumes. Your skin is an organ of elimination and absorption, so adding more chemicals to your body will increase the overall toxic load.
