Our health can be affected by improper sleep. It can weaken our immune system. Moreover, the position in which we sleep also affects our health.
According to Dr. John Douillard, sleeping on the left side can save your life.
Lying on the left side has great benefit, while sleeping on the right side give the adverse effects.
Why it is significant to sleep on the left side?
When you sleep on this side during the night, your lymphatic system located above the heart, allows the natural draining to take place in the lymphatic system which will help in filtering toxins, lymph fluid, and waste through the thoracic duct and the lymph nodes.
Sleeping on the right side can disturb your digestion in a bad way, causing the lymph system work slowly. The lymphatic system becomes incapable of filtering the toxins or appropriately moving the lymph fluid throughout the body and can also pose risk to your life.
The major organ in the lymphatic system is the spleen which filters the blood and helps the digestive process work properly.
