Answer: Your Lymphatic System
One of the lesser talked about benefits of exercise is that it moves your lymphatic fluid, which promotes detoxification in your body.
What's the best exercise for your lymph system? Jumping!
Your lymphatic system is composed of your tonsils, thymus, bone marrow, spleen, lymphatic fluid, vessels, and lymph nodes.
The thymus and bone marrow produce white blood cells called lymphocytes.
Your lymph vessels are like blood vessels except they are full of clear lymphatic fluid that carries white blood cells (B cell and T cell lymphocytes) throughout your body so they can attack invaders and infected cells.
Your lymphatic fluid also carries dead cells, metabolic waste, and toxins away from healthy tissue to be eliminated through sweat, mucus, urine, and liver bile which is carried out in your poop.
Lymph nodes are like holding stations that filter the lymph fluid and capture microbes for B and T cells to deal with. They are located in your armpits, groin, neck and around the blood vessels of your chest and abdomen.
You have about three times more lymphatic fluid than blood, but here’s the catch, there’s no pump! Muscle contractions in your body encourage the lymphatic fluid to circulate through a series of one-way valves in your body. So the more you move your body, the more you move your lymphatic fluid.
Chris Wark of ChrisBeatCancer.com discovered the importance of Rebounding (jumping on a mini trampoline) everyday.
He says this about Rebounding: "I figured since so many natural survivors and health practitioners were doing it there must be something to it…"

This article is meant for educational purposes only. I do not have a personal testimony about beating cancer without surgery and chemo but it does make a lot of sense to me that taking care of the lymphatic system can only be good for prevention of a lot of disease and misery.
