Deep Breathing and Stretches Opens Your Lymphatics
Posted on 02 March 2016
Oxygen is essential at the cellular level in the production of energy. Exhalation reverses this order as the waste product of oxygen metabolism, carbon dioxide, is exhaled from your lungs. Don't wait another minute! The brain uses 20 percent of the oxygen in your body. As your body heals it requires all the oxygenation possible. In addition to oxygenation, the beauty of deep breath work is its effect on the lymphatic system. As the body goes from inhale to exhale there is a change in intra-abdominal pressure. This change creates a vacuum which helps push sluggish lymph fluid up the Thoracic Duct on its return to the Venous Angle where it will connect with the venous system.
