Why do you have to lie down after a meal?
Most fat in meals is absorbed through lymph ducts of small intestine. 2 to 3 hours after a meal is the time period that cisterna chyli enlarges most because a large amount of lymph containing fat flows in. That is why it is the most effective to lie down and perform abdominal breathing 2 hours after meals.
The secrets of abdominal breathing to flow lymph stored in cisterna chyli are:
1. Performing abdominal breathing, putting your hands on your abdomen and confirming your abdomen moves up and down with breathing.
2. Breathing in slowly through your nose feeling your abdomen expands
3. Breathing out slowly from your mouth feeling your abdomen contracts
4. 2 to 3 times a minute, breathing slowly, taking about 20 seconds
Another easy and effective method to boost up your immune strength
The key word is strengthening immune cells.
Immune cells are very sensitive. If the core body temperature goes up by 1 degree C, they feel stress and get activated.
The temperature of the skin goes up and down according to the outside air temperature, but the core body temperature is maintained at a constant temperature regardless of the outside air temperature.
If you raise the core body temperature by 1 degree C (1.8 degree F) by taking a bath, the heat becomes stress for the immune cells, resulting in strengthening the immune cells.
How to take a bath to raise the core body temperature by 1 degree C is
Soaking your body up to your shoulders into water of 41 degree C (105.8 degree F) for 15 minutes.
The indication that the core body temperature raises by 1 degree C is to start sweating on your forehead.
The above 2 males tried both abdominal breathing and bathing for another day.
Their NK activities were:
71 years old male: 30 to 43
54 years old male: 17 to 17
