The Health Coach
Of all the exercises and massages, detoxification therapies and alternative modalities, New Age techniques and Integrative protocols, there is none so effective at thoroughly cleansing the lymphatic system as a vigorous 20 to 30 minute walk … in nature.
There are some very important qualifications for those who intend to do it right.
First of all, we ought to acknowledge the Creator for designing the human body so that it can be so easily cleansed simply by walking. What a great idea! Cleanse as you walk…any time, any where, as long as you can get off the couch.
The secret behind the cleansing process lies in the pump, or rather the lack thereof.
When you walk at a brisk pace your legs provide a natural pumping action which serves to move the lymph through the lymphatic system. This is significant because the lymphatic system has no pump as the circulatory has a heart to pump blood. Therefore, we understand that the upper half of the body also requires some assistance.
