Why you should think about the lymphatic system

The first time that I heard about the lymphatic system, was from a client who was in tune with her body. She would regularly see a massage therapist and the therapy that was applied by the therapist, helped drain the lymphatic system.

The lymphatic system is part of your immune system. It consists of lymph, lymph nodes, and vessels. This system maintains body fluid levels, absorbs digestive tract fats and, removing cellular waste.

To help this system in your body, there are a few things you can do. 

– Drink enough water so that the system can move the lymph easy;

– Maintain a health diet; and

– Exercise.

There’s a lot of information out there that certain exercises like the rebounder, are great for the lymphatic system but any exercise that makes you breathe heavier is good. This includes any cardiovascular exercises like brisk walking, cycling, running, rowing and, rebounder (small trampoline).

My aim as a personal trainer is not only to help you reach your goals but also to help you realize that exercise plays a bigger part. So many things in your body need you to move your body daily. In the current (2021) society, we are very sedentary, and healthy eating isn’t something many of us want to do but please consider it.
