The 3 Lymphatic Pumps.
1. Once a day, heat through the chest by warming both front and back, breast bone and spine, include the neck up to the chin, preferably for five minutes or more in a hot shower [hot water bottles will do]. As this area warms up there may well be fairly constant burping for the first week or two, do not suppress this, it is highly beneficial. Once the whole chest cavity is well warmed through then try to stretch the internal tissues with gentle arm and neck stretching and deep breaths. This generally produces about a 20% improvement in stamina within a fortnight and reduces aches considerably too. Continue this exercise 2-3 times a week thereafter and a slow but steady improvement is usually achievable.
2. To augment this effect it is useful to give a big yawney stretch like the ones you did as a kid. Was there a slight twist when the arms were overhead? Or did you twist an out thrust arm? Do the one that’s natural to you. The reason for saying the one you do naturally is that the specific point that this effects is in a slightly different place on every individual. So the stretch that is natural to you will be the right one for you and one that someone else does will be right for them, but not for you. This stretch should be done at least twice on rising everyday of your life and it is a good idea to repeat it whenever you have been still for an hour or more after sitting at the computer, watching TV or reading a book.
3. A slow breathing routine can be developed safely without supervision only so long as you are careful to follow these instructions and not rush into it thinking ‘well breathing is a perfectly natural process we all do it all the time and nobody died of doing it yet’, true but people have become very ill from doing it badly. Breath to a slow count of sixteen.
# Breath in to a slow count of four. A long sigh out to a slow count of eight, then hold the breath out for a further count of four. Swallow twice. Breath in and chuckle or cough or a giggle is most effective but some find it hard to giggle to order.
# Breath in to a slow count of four, fill the low abdomen. A long sigh out to a slow count of eight, then hold the breath out for a further count of four, breath in and chuckle or cough or a giggle is most effective.
# Breath in to a slow count of four and try to fill the low abdomen. Sigh out to a slow count of eight, then hold the breath out for a further count of four, breath in and chuckle or cough or giggle down into the low abdomen.
