Today we’re going to be talking about is all about the lymphatic system. You know how I go crazy over the systems, folks. This is a big system that a lot of people don’t really think about when they do all the things that they’re doing.This lymphatic system is designed to get all the sludge out of your body. All the toxic waste that your body produces, it comes through this channel first before the rest of the ways of getting out. Your sweat, your pee, your poop, all that has to run through the lymphatic system, but what people don’t realize is the lymphatic system is really molasses-slow. So we have to understand that if we’re going to do these massive detoxes, and all this movement-based stuff that’s going to get muscle tissue to move and do all this, our lymphatic system is going to be taxed. And if our lymphatic system is not up to par, if you’re not hydrated enough, if you’re not doing and eating the right things that’s keeping the lymphatic system up to par, that’s going to be really sluggish on top of the sluggish nature that it is.I hear everyone going through all these detoxes and all these things to make the body better, but they’re not realizing that they can only move as fast as the lymphatic system will allow it. So we have to take that under consideration. Our lymphatic system is something that moves with peristalsis, for instance. It works with the fibers of your muscle. So the better your muscle can contract – because where they’re situated – that’s how your body is going to eliminate the toxins inside the body. As you can see the lymphatic system is widespread throughout your body, from the top part of your head to your tippy, tippy toes, but there’s also pockets of highly dense lymph nodes.When people get sick and they touch around their neck or your armpit, they go, “Yeah, you’re going through something because your lymph nodes are swollen.” But that swollen nature is showing you the first sign that it’s active, but if it stays swollen, something’s up folks, so we have to get you moving. That’s why whenever someone gets sick, I tell people you do not want to just stay sedentary for seven, eight days or however long it takes for you to get sick. You don’t want to do that because we need the muscles to contract to get the lymphatic system to work properly. We have to focus around how the head moves–head and neck movement, around the shoulders, around the hips, around the knees, around the ankles. That’s where you have highly dense pockets of lymph nodes. We have to get you to start learning how to move those things to get better.Think whenever you’re doing a detox of any sort or starting to pick up your movements, your workout regimen, you have to cater to this. Now, this is where it gets tricky because they’re very, very easily bypassed because they’re so close between the muscle and the skin that you can bypass it really, really quick and really easy. The things that you need to do is all based off intention: get your body to communicate with the lymphatic system, not with your muscular system. If you are sick, try foam rolling, but not foam rolling for tension release–foam rolling for lymphatic drainage. So you have to learn how to process up. You have to process how the lymph system is working in getting access to that.That’s a whole communication basis all on its own, so that’s something that we’ll talk about on a later day. But you have to understand that the lymphatic system runs all the way across the body, it’s very, very slow and we always bypass it. So we have to start getting you to realize a deeper picture of the lymphatic system. We have to get you to recognize, “if my lymphatic system is not working, I’m going to swell in certain places. I have to get those places to start learning how to move through.” Let’s take a deeper look into the lymphatic system.Within the lymphatic systems, I already told you there’s those pockets everywhere of highly dense lymph nodes. We know all around the neck, around the armpit, throughout the arms at every joint. You want to think about it as within every joint, there’s going to be a pocket of lymph nodes because that’s going to pull whatever toxins is in that extremity into the body and disperse them throughout the core of your body.Your hips are a big, big lymph node area. Armpits, neck. Right here [points] as you can see, inside your chest cavity itself, there’s a swell there because everything gets pushed into that, so your liver and your kidneys, all your detox organs could start doing the job they need to do. What you have to do is you have to stay very conscious and realize, “I want to detox. I want my body to get better, but my body can only get better if the systems around it are functional.”So keep in mind how your systems are working. Lymphatic system, in general, for this week, but you have to start getting in the thought of looking at the world like that, your body as an intelligent system. You want to help your body. You want to start learning how to communicate with your body. That’s top-notch, but don’t over-stress your body because you want too much too fast. Okay?Realize, it’s a slow-moving system, and when you are sick, one of the reasons why your body hurts is because your lymphatic system is swelling and it can’t hold that type of weight. No, it can’t do that. So we have to cater to that system, and whatever sickness you have will start to speed up because you’re getting it out, as long as you stay hydrated, eat the right foods and keep everything moving. It’s all about moving, baby.
Understanding HVAC systems
The heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system is the respiratory system of any building. Its main purpose is to provide conditioned air i.e. air which is clean and odorless to breathe in a safe and comfortable environment. The HVAC system controls the quality, movement and temperature of the air and ensures that it is at a comfortable range.According to their use, HVACs can be categorized into three types namely commercial HVACs, residential HVACs, and industrial HVACs. A better understanding of the HVAC system makes you realize the significance of regular maintenance to ensure its long-lasting performance and full benefits.How Does Your HVAC System Work?
The HVAC system behaves in a repetitive cycle to fulfill its responsibility to provide heated or cooled air as needed. How does it do that? Consider the function of its components below.Ventilation Systems
Ventilation systems are of three types – supply, exhaust, and balanced. The exhaust ventilation system makes use of exhaust fans for pulling air out of the home. It reduces pressure of the air inside and allows the natural flow of air outside. The supply ventilation system does it the other way round – it pumps air into the building in order to make the old, stale air leak out. The balanced ventilation system makes use of both supply and exhaust fans to push out old air and allow fresh air to come in.Air Conditioning
The air conditioning system usually consists of two units, the inside unit known as the evaporator and the outside unit known as the condenser. The condenser is in the high pressure side of the system. The compressor spins the refrigerant into a high pressure gas and sends it to the compressor. It loses its heat and turns into a liquid. This liquid goes into the evaporator which is the low pressure side of the unit. As the pressure suddenly drops here, the refrigerant vaporizes and is transformed into low-temperature, low-pressure gas. As the air is circulated through the many tubes in the system, the heat is absorbed and cool air is circulated through the ventilation system. The repeated cycle provides continuous cool air.Heating
Your HVAC system consists of a furnace and a ductwork that are connected together to provide a heat exchange. The system usually has a fan attached to pull the heat from the ventilation system and allow it to circulate in the building. A heat pump may be used to supplement the furnace as well but for central heat systems, it is essential. The pump moves heat from outside air into the evaporator and then, it is pumped into the ventilation system.There are exhaust ducts, supply ducts and return ducts in the HVAC system. Each needs to be installed properly for the system to function efficiently. Regular maintenance of your HVAC system can help prevent poor ventilation and save you on long-term costs.Contact your local expert Contractor to get quality maintenance services or to inquire further about your HVAC system.
