#18 - Using a Chi Machine for Lymphatic Drainage
Lymphatic drainage is important when cleansing. As you take herbs and eat a cleansing diet, stored toxins are released into the body. Your body naturally sends these to the lymphatic system for transporting these toxins out of the body. Knowing this, it is imperative to ensure your lymphatic system is moving efficiently.
When the lymph doesn't move as it should, we start storing toxins and fat and toxins in and around our excess fat. As this process is allowed to go on, the excess fat and fluids can cut off oxygen to the same areas, causing less blood to the area. This can become a vicious cycle. In some, cellulite is created. Most of the time, we attribute these processes to age instead of what it is: unhealthy lifestyles due to a build-up of toxins over time.
A simple way to overcome the this is by using lymphatic drainage. This can be accomplished in a number of ways. The first that comes to mind for many is paying a massage therapist to do this type of massage. But this can be expensive.
A Chi Machine is an easy way to accomplish lymphatic drainage at home at a reasonable price.
These types of machines help bring oxygen into the entire body by increasing blood flow. Once you use it, you can feel the spine and other muscles loosen up and open up which allows more blood to flow in. As the blood flow increases, so does the oxygen intake, as blood cells carry oxygen throughout the body.
Some doctors around the world have studied the chi machine on post-surgery patients and have found fluid build-up in the legs to lessen and even proof of increased lymphatic transport.
If you decide to try - start at just five minutes per day and work your way up. The cost is a small investment compared to the investment of a regular spa massage.
