Boosting the immune system - lymphatic draining

Post 1

Zarquon's Singing Fish!

I had my first lymphatic drainage yesterday, which was an interesting experience. I was surprised to find out how much lymph we have in our bodies - about the same amount as blood, but doesn't have a pump, so it relies on exercise and movement to flow round the body. It's a sort of screening and disposal system for all the rubbish that builds up in the body and empties it back into the bloodstream. They include T-cells which kill invaders and destroy abnormal body cells.

It was a more extensive process than I had initially thought - massage with oil, starting with the stomach, then progressing to other parts, including legs, arms, chest, back, neck and face. An early effect was a headache, but this morning when I got up, I noticed that my ankles were slimmer and had lost some of the puffiness they had gained. I've also got a programme of self-care to follow daily.
