Protecting Your Lymphatic SystemMelissa Dugan
The human body is effortlessly fascinating. Without our direct instruction, and often without our understanding of the complexities, it works on our behalf to cleanse, protect, and defend us from every potential harmful invader.
One important system working to keep the body healthy and free of pathogens and toxins is the Lymphatic System. The vital system of organs works to filter unwanted, unhealthy substances out of the bloodstream and tissues. This is done by the unique pathogen-destroying cells located within the spleen, thymus, and tonsils.
While this complex system works in the background to keep us safe, there are several things we can do to keep our lymphatic system working optimally, helping to increase our resistance to harmful pathogens and bacteria.
Four Functions of a Healthy Lymphatic System
Maintaining a healthy lymphatic system is an important way to advocate for your own health and well-being. The intricate system functions to keep the body free of dangerous pathogens that diminish your overall health. Here are the four main functions of the lymphatic system.
- The lymphatic system actively removes impurities and toxins from the body, like carbon dioxide, sodium, and more. This organic cleansing cycle takes place through natural perspiration, bowel movements, urine, and breathing.
- The lymphatic system works to collect excessive fluid, especially lymph fluid, which surrounds organs and tissues and returns it to the bloodstream. Without this process, fluid buildup in the body would lead to swelling.
- Acting as a filter, the lymphatic system engages your protective white blood cells to attack viruses and bacteria that pass through your lymph nodes.
- Constantly creating special white blood cells called lymphocytes, the lymphatic system works to defend the body against illness-causing bacteria, fungi, and viruses. The lymphocytes produce beneficial antibodies that combat infection and trigger immune responses to protect the body.
Protecting the Lymphatic System: Healthy Habits to Implement Today
Because the lymphatic system is an important part of a healthy body, it has never been more crucial to implement habits to support and protect it. Especially now, when many people are doing everything they can to avoid getting sick, keeping your lymphatic system functioning properly is an easy way to keep your body functioning at its best.
Here are six easy-to-implement tips for supporting a healthy lymphatic system.
- Maintain a healthy diet. Diets rich in healthy fats, vegetables, and dense with many nutrients, vitamins, and minerals are great for maintaining your lymphatic system. In fact, many individuals increase their intake of leafy greens, low-sugar fruits, garlic, avocados, walnuts, and cranberries as a natural way to cleanse the lymphatic system.
- Stay properly hydrated. Because the lymphatic system works to release pathogens through fluids, your system thrives when your body is well-hydrated. This means that you should drink approximately 8 full glasses of water each day, at least.
- Stay active. When you exercise on a regular basis, you are helping your lymphatic system work properly. Exercise helps maintain a healthy heart rate, keeps fluids moving through your body, and it aids in the lymphatic system‘s efforts to drain harmful substances out of your body through those fluids.
- Avoid toxins and pollutants. When possible, try to reduce the amount of pollutants you expose yourself to, as the inhalation of those harmful toxins will immediately trigger your lymphatic system to work in overdrive. Excessive emissions, fuels, and even artificial scents in your home can be hindering your lymphatic system. To keep the air clean and pure in your home, consider replacing all unnatural scents with natural essential oils, and using allergen-reducing air filters.
- Utilize healthy stress-management techniques. Like with many other things in the body, stress can cause a disruption in the effectiveness of your lymphatic system. When the body experiences high stress, it sometimes enters “fight or flight” mode, diverting energy that would normally be used for maintaining normal, healthy functions to other areas of the body in preparation for emergency response. Without a highly effective solution to stress, the lymphatic system simply cannot function at its best.
- Incorporate deep breathing exercises. Remarkably, the body contains three times more lymph fluid than blood. In order to keep the fluids circulating effectively so the lymphatic system can function optimally, you can engage in simple breathing exercises. Deep breathing prompts the healthy cycle of filtering toxins to the liver so they can be properly destroyed.
