If you want to move lymph around in your body, you need to be exercising...The lymphatics work
on a pumping mechanism but you've got to be moving for lymph to flow.
My yoga teacher gave me two lymphatic flow options.
One is to lie on the floor with your legs up against the wall....get as close as you can to the wall....
your butt, ie. Way to do that is to sit next to the wall sideways....picture this...your entire right leg
is touching the wall while you're sitting facing another direction. I wish I could draw you a picture...
This isn't easy to explain. I guess you're at a right angle to the wall....legs in front of you....So then
you sort of swing your legs around from the side and get them up the wall....Your butt should be
as close to the wall as you can get it. I sometimes just do this close to a sofa's back and put my
legs up the back of that. OK....so now after your legs are up against the wall....hold your arms
up in the air....not behind your head....but straight up in the air. And just lie there...legs up,
arms in the air....stay as long as you can... This is rather a reverse pumping of your lymphatics....and when you stand up again, you'll get better lymph flow.
Jumping would give you good lymphatic flow. This is why I like my rebounder. I know you returned yours. So don't imagine you're going to be jumping on the bed....
Maybe just hold onto something and take a few small jumps if you can manage it.
Another way to get lymphatic flow going is to just pump your arms. Stand up straight....put your
arms out in front of you....and just whip them downwards to your sides...Then start swinging them
rather violently....up, down....making sort of whooshing sound with your hands and they pump
downwards. Does this make any sense? You can actually tire yourself out because this is quite
energizing....but it does get lymph fluid flowing.
Hope one of these techniques works for you.
