How movement increases our immunity


Role of Lymph Nodes in keeping us healthy

  • Tissues put all their waste, dead cells, dead virus/bacteria in the blood.
  • Lymph nodes act like a filter and collect all the waste.
  • There are about 700-800 lymph nodes in our body, from foot upto the neck.
  • These nodes drain into the big lymph node in the navel region which drains into the colon.
  • The 2 fluid systems in our body
    • Blood, has a pump i.e. Heart
    • Lymph, no pump. Lymphatic fluid moves when we move.
  • So movement is very important, if we don't move disease is unavoidable.

Exercise which drain the lymph nodes fastest

Lymph nodes keep the blood healthy and increase our immunity.
