The bloodstream is our own inner river of life! Which like any other watery body can become clogged and polluted.
We can become informed of actions we can take and lifestyle choices we make to keep our blood strong clean and vital throughout our life.
We need also to recognize what contributes to causing symptoms of blood toxicity and bring ourselves back to an optimum level of well being.
Exercise is a very important tool for circulation and heart health. It also gives the lymphatic system a great boost. Increasing the heart rate helps the body regulate and pump blood through the body replenishing the oxygen in the cells.
Walking Yoga, stretching swimming is all great safe ways to de-stress and keep active in a way that will not be too much for the body to cope with. Rebounding on a trampoline works very well when it comes to helping the lymphatic system. This is due to the gravitational force experienced during this particular choice of exercise, which allows trapped blood protein to be removed so the lymph flow is better.
