An Easy Way to Move Lymph
The Lymph is the body’s sewer system. Your 100 trillion cells all poop and these wastes are carried by the lymph to the lymph nodes and to the kidneys for disposal. If this system backs up acids form and destroy tissues which is the cause of man’s suffering. Lymph is also your main immune system. White blood cells in this system recognize and destroy unwanted pathogens like viruses, fungus, parasites, etc. Backed up lymph also leads to inflammation which causes swelling and pain (and eventually tissue degeneration). Keeping lymph moving is essential.
The lymph system does not have a pump like the heart. It mostly relies on muscle contractions to move it but sometimes this is not enough. You can assist the body in moving lymph by simply taking alternate hot and cold showers. Hot water expands lymph vessels while cold water constricts them. This will create a “pumping” action like an accordion to get tough lymph moving and improve overall health.
Use a shower water filter that removes chlorine, fluoride, heavy metals, etc. (less than $30 @ Home Depot)
Start with a comfortable water temperature.
Slowly turn up the hot till you can barely stand it. Expose the entire body including the head and face.
Get every part of your body nice and hot.
Now slowly turn down the hot water and turn up cold. Go as cold as you can. It will be uncomfortable but it won’t hurt you. Get everywhere nice and cold. Burr! Your muscles will naturally constrict helping move lymph fluids.
Now repeat this process 2-5 times going as hot and as cold as you can stand.
Congratulations! Remember to always start with hot and end with cold.
You can use a skin brush or loofa (or just rub your skin) to stimulate lymph movement even more, especially during the cold water rinse.
Pay extra attention to painful areas(neck, shoulders, knees, back, etc.) – this can be a sign of stagnant / acidic lymph.
If you feel dizzy or too uncomfortable just take a break for a minute. Listen to your body.
You can do these 2 or 3 times a day. They wake you up in the morning and help you sleep at night.

Did you know that pineapple juice is 5 times more effective than cough syrup at helping you to stop coughing? Well, believe it because it’s true, and it’s all because of the fact that fresh pineapple contains a substance called Bromelain, a specific type of enzyme that can combat infections and eradicate bacteria because of its anti-inflammatory characteristics.
One glass of pineapple juice contains nearly half of the amount of vitamin C that is required per day. Vitamin C is essential for the body, despite its many different effects, it also enables your body to metabolize certain vital enzymes that manage your energy and regulate your metabolism.
It is also assumed that the body directly absorbs certain amount of Bromelain from the pineapple juice, and that it lessens the inflammation relieving conditions like arthritis. In many countries for example Germany Bromelain is specifically approved for the treatment of inflammation and swelling of the nose, especially after a sinus surgery.
