Have you ever wondered why do so many people have health issues on just one side of their body? It`s always the pain in my left shoulder, left foot, left-sided abdominal pain or the other way around…
Our bodies are symmetrical, but not when it comes to the inside. It might sound strange, but the left side of the body is almost completely different from the right one.
Sometimes doing a simple thing like resting or sleeping on the left side can be a source of health and longevity.
Here are 6 Scientific Reasons Why You Should Always Sleep on Your Left Side:
1. Facilitate Lymphatic Drainage
The lymph fluid drains into the thoracic duct towards the left. Glucose, proteins and other waste product are carried by the lymph fluid, get purified and then drained into the left side of the heart.
2. Better Heart Function
When sleeping on the left side gravity takes some of the workload off the heart, making it easier to pump blood downhill and into the descending aorta.
3. Better Elimination of Toxins and Better Digestion
Again, gravity allows for our stomach as well as pancreas to hang naturally, which helps a lot with the movement of digestive processes.
