Did you know that every evening between 9 – 11 p.m. your body cleans your blood and then dumps the waste into your lymph nodes?
When I was studying for my PhD in holistic nutrition, one of my textbooks was on the history of Chinese medicine. It outlined that every 2-hours, our bodies cleanse a different body system.
This is amazing information to know when you’re detoxing.
Your body maintains a tight cleaning schedule every night after the sun goes down – it spends approximately 2 hours cleaning each of your body systems – one at a time.
Shortly before the sun comes up, the last system cleansed is your lower body’s intestines, bladder, and kidneys. When you awaken in the morning, you go to the bathroom to empty all the trash that your body swept into the trash bin as you slept.
Look at it like your body has a night time cleaning crew that empties all your trash every night when you are asleep (when you have turned off the lights and left the office so to say).
Going to bed early, and at the very least spending this time relaxing, reading, listening to music, or watching videos, allows your body to make repairs without interference.
If you stay up late and are active between 9 – 11 p.m eating, drinking, washing the dishes and finishing chores, getting the children ready for bed, or dancing at a nightclub, then this can have a negative impact on your health.
Stay active during the day to keep your lymph system running like a clean engine! Then, get out of the way and let your body cleanse at night.
4 Simple Ways To Keep Your Blood Clean
- Commit to a detox program and liver cleanse at least 2 to 3 times every year for a week to 10 days;
- Stop eating ALL food chemicals (these are blood pollutants), such as food colorings, diet sweeteners, and hydrogenated oils;
- Make sure you exercise regularly, and try to sweat when you work out because this opens your pores and helps release toxins from the lymph nodes, particularly under your arm;
- Stop eating heavy meals around 6:00 PM so your body can stop digesting and start preparing for housecleaning duties with no interference.
Sounds pretty basic, doesn’t it? Well, it is! It’s as easy as changing your daily routine and lifestyle.
Pollutants can saturate your bloodstream and clog your lymph glands just like dirty oil in your car engine clogs the filters if not changed regularly.
Your bloodstream is like the oil in your car, and your lymph nodes/glands are like the oil filters. Maybe this is a crude comparison (no pun intended), but it helps you understand that your blood and the glands provided to filter impurities from your blood, operate in much the same manner as the oil in your car engine.
Don’t go to bed hungry, so if you want a snack before bed, eat or drink foods that are easy to digest, that are low in carbs and sugar. Try blending a protein smoothie or drinking a cup of herbal tea.
And try to go to bed earlier.
