Listening to a video and reading the article by Dr John Douillard about the importance of the lymphatic system on our health. I think this is probably the issue I had recently. I thought it was something else entirely. but it matches what was happening to me – and you have lymph nodes just above the gut which is where I swelled up.
This article also highlights the importance of the brain’s ‘glymphatic’ system, only recently discovered, which drains toxins out of the brain at night – hence the importance of sleep to our overall wellbeing and avoidance of dementia.
Does anyone remember Margaret Thatcher famoulsly only slept 4 hours a night? – and you know how she ended her days.. Probably the same was true of President Reagan. Sleep on your side for best drainage – and try to get 6 – 8 hours.
I shall be talking about this in my next book ‘The world within – how your microbiome makes you who you are’ due out 2017.
