Deep breathing, where you fill your belly and expand your diaphragm downwards, is one of the most powerful exercise you can do to activate your lymph system which helps to detoxify your body. Practice 10 deep slow breaths counting 4 seconds in, 8 seconds hold and 8 seconds out. Up to 70% of our body’s waste products are eliminated via our lungs and the rest through the urine, skin and feces. Breathe long slow and deep in a mindful state as often as possible.
