Walking Exercise to Stimulate Lymphatic Cleansing

Walking is one of the best lymphatic exercises we can do. It is low impact enough to work well with your cleansing program while at the same time helping your body to move waste out, bring oxygen in and stretch your legs, hips and abdomen muscles all at the same time!

Where's the proof that it moves out waste? A study from Harvard found that regular walking lowers the risk of needing gallstone surgery. Waste must move out of the gall bladder so that stones do not form.

Walking also has been proven to lower the risk of stroke, breast cancer and type 2 diabetes. It has also proven to help reduce the bad cholesterol in the blood which causes plaque buildup in the artery walls.

The pumping of the calf muscles while walking moves the lymphatic system. This is especially important when cleansing. When using a colon cleansing program, toxins are taken out of storage. They must go to the lymphatic system or the blood so your body can remove them. The lymphatic system does not have a pump of it's own and relies on these muscular contractions to help waste move out.

A steady, brisk walk at least three to six times a week for 30 minutes each session will give you the most benefit. If you live in a high pollution area, you might invest in a treadmill for easier breathing. These are also nice if you live in a noisy or populated city area.

If you use the chi machine or rebounder you can alternate walking with either of these for variety. For easier weight loss walk in the morning and use a rebounder in the evening. This will help you sleep more soundly as an added benefit!
