Did you know that we should always pay attention to the side we sleep on? That is important because it affects our digestive tract.
According to the monks in ancient times, digestion can be improved by lying down for 10 minutes after a meal.
Ayurvedic medicine and the Indian medicine are two ancient traditional medicines that support the sleeping on the left side.
The explanation for this believe, of these two alternative medicines is based on the lymphatic system. Our left body side has more lymphatic vessels. The thoracic duct, the duct into which the lymph drains, is positioned on the left side of our body. The lymph carries glucose, proteins and waste products. Before the waste and the metabolites enter the left side of the heart they are cleansed by the lymph nodes.
