Whole Body Vibration Machine Exercises For A Congested Lymphatic System

The lymphatic system is one of the two circulatory systems in the body, its main role being to remove the debris from the organism so as to maintain a strong immune function. Generally speaking, nutrients are carried to cells through the lymph vessels, which then carries the cellular waste to the bloodstream, from where it is transferred to the kidneys, lungs and colon for elimination.

When this system is not working the correct way, the lymph vessels and nodes can become clogged and this can lead to a number of symptoms such as:

  • Fatigue

  • Weight gain and excess fluid retention

  • Constipation

  • Back pain

  • Depression and others

The lymph is a clear fluid and the vessels are very comparable to blood vessels, but have thinner walls, are much greater in number and compared to veins, they have more valves and a less sinuous course through the body. Lymph vessels are connected by lymph nodes which are discovered at various intervals, and drain the lymph from the extracellular spaces to the arteriovenous circulation.

The capacity of the lymphatic system is of 2 liters of lymph, while the veins can carry 3.7 liters of fluid. As for lymph nodes themselves, a casual, adult body contains around 450 lymph nodes, most of them being distributed in the abdomen and pelvis.

Since the lymphatic system contains no pump, the movement of lymph depends on the contractions of the surrounding muscles. And even though the contractions of blood vessels can also stimulate lymph drainage, most of the movement results from skeletal muscle contractions.As a result, the most efficient solutions for stimulating lymphatic drainage, in case of a clogged system, are those that cause muscle contractions, such as conventional exercise or a Whole Body Vibration Machine.

Whole Body Vibration Machine Routine For A Congested Lymphatic System

Ideally, each of these exercises should be performed for one minute, so you’ll need at least 10 minutes to perform the complete routine. If you’re not used to a Whole Body Vibration Machine, you may prefer to take short breaks after each exercise. If you feel as if the frequency is too high during some of the movements, decrease it to a level that feels comfortable and increase progressively, as you get used with this form of exercise.

Now keep the back straight, knees slightly bent and abs contracted throughout the workout. This routine is not meant to strengthen your muscles but to promote lymphatic drainage, however you can benefit from the additional effects of a Whole Body Vibration Machine.

To increase the intensity of the exercises and get more stimulation for your muscles or bones, you can increase the frequency or the amplitude. To decrease the amplitude, bring you feet or hands closer to the machine’s center.
