The human body functions at a very delicate temperature balance of 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. This is usually the measure for finding out whether you are in “normal” health or not. However, the most accurate measure of health is your blood chemistry or more specifically the alkaline/acid balance in your blood stream, which for a healthy person is at 7.365.
However, most of us lead unbalanced lives and our dietary habits are anything but healthy, which leads to a buildup of acidity and toxicity in the body. The system which cleans out the toxicity is the lymphatic system. But it only works when the muscles of the body move — it does not have a pump like the heart, so it relies on muscular movement and breath. Deep breathing and active movement like exercise, yoga, walking etc helps pump the lymph thru the lymphatic system.
