A healthy lymph system is a key for a healthy body. This system serves to remove toxins from the body and transmits white blood cells needed for t fight against infections. If its work is hindered, the body doesn’t get the needed support.
Exercising is one way to improve the health of the lymph system. Jumps or jumping on a small trampoline are a good way to restart the lymph system. Other ways are lymph drainage and dry brushing.
The lymph system works to remove the toxins and proteins from the brain. Malfunction of the lymph system can lead to diseases like Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, ALS, and chronic traumatic encephalopathy.
In a study published by the Stony Brook University, published in the Journal of Neuroscience, a group of scientists studied the lymph system during sleep and found that one’s sleeping pose can have a tremendous effect on the amount of liquid removed from the brain.
Hence, the ones who slept with their heads raised, had the smallest amount of moving liquid from the brain, whereas the ones who slept on their sides and without a pillow, had an excellent removal of liquids.
According to the study, the best way to sleep is on the left or right side, and, if possible, without a pillow. Even though some people may find it difficult sleeping without a pillow at first, it is certainly worth the effort.
Pillows are not good for our head and neck. Not only do they cause pain in the neck, but they also hinder proper blood flow to the brain during sleep. Therefore, in order to maintain the health of the lymph system, try sleeping without a pillow.
