The easy walking techniques, shown in the video, can be incorporated into your daily routine. I taught these two techniques at Hopewood Health retreat for 14 years before it sadly closed its doors. The rewards are great to those who keep doing it. Not to mention the laughter shared!
Benefits of these walking techniques include:
- feeling more energized
- improved kidney function
- healthier lymphatic system
- more toxins shed
- increased immunity to diseases.
Lymphatic activation technique walk – 10 minutes
This should be done at the beginning of your walking day, so that as you start the rest of your daily exercise the lymphatic system is already activated.
- Swing arms as high as you can in front of the body and behind the body.
- Lift the legs in front of you as high as you can without discomfort. Swing up the opposite leg to the arm.
- This is a slow rhythmic walk to be done whilst breathing in time with your walking
Kidney activation walk forward – 100 steps
This is a slow, heel-to-toe walk , stepping only one foot ahead with each step. Swing the arms to cup one kidney then the other with each step. (Watch the video for the arm action.)
Kidney activation walk backwards – 100 steps
This is a ball of the foot to heel walk, that is fast, deliberate and hard down on the heel. You step half the length of each foot backwards with each step. Watch the video for the right action.
Caution: Be sure to drink a big glass of water before you start your walk activation and also at the finish of your daily walk. This will allow your body to detox and flush out all the toxins.
TIP: Time your dinner to coincide with your kidney energy clock,
between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. This will restore your energy.
Your kidneys store energy reserves. If you feel tired, what did you spend your energy on?
