Lymphatic Detoxification  
 
Health cannot be restored without restoring the body’s natural power to heal itself.  The lymphatic network is the purification system of the body.  When the lymph is cleared, the body can then begin to heal itself.

 

The lymphatic system plays a vital role in the body’s immunity to diseases. It is a complex network of fluid-filled tubes that continuously bathe our cells and carry away the body’s waste – to filters called lymph nodes, where harmful substances are trapped and then neutralized. 

 

The body contains three times more lymph fluid than blood! However, while blood has the heart to keep it pumping, lymph must be pumped by the movement of our muscles (or deep deep breathing). The less we move, the more stagnant the lymphatic system becomes. Other factors, such as illness, chemicals/pesticides in food, pollution, etc. can also overload and stall the lymphatic system. Everyday stress slows down the lymph flow. With today’s sedentary lifestyles, pollution, constipation, and diets low in nutrients/high in toxins, the common lymphatic system is overloaded, congested, and clogged

 

How does one get lymph to move?

 

The body’s lymphatic system must depend on motion (exercise, massage…) and proper breathing to move lymph through its vessels. I have personally found ELT therapy to be the gold standard in cleansing the lymphatic system. Electro-Lymphatic Drainage Method assists those who want to increase lymph flow. Since bodily fluids are conductors of electricity – in conjunction with special frequencies – I use electricity and sound to break down congested lymph using a state-of-the-art in lymphatic drainage instrument.  Each session is equivalent to several manual lymphatic drainage sessions because 30% more of the deep lymph nodes in the torso are able to be accessed. As lymph is effortlessly moved through the lymphatic pathways, the client is left feeling calm and rejuvenated.

 

A pump-less system:

Due to the nature of the lymphatic system, it is at high risk for blockages and congestion. Everyday contributing factors include:

 

  • tight fitting clothing (ties, bras, jockey shorts, pantyhose, belts etc)

  • lack of exercise or wrong type of exercise

  • injury (bumps & bruises)

  • exposure to heavy metals

  • overall body toxicity

  • stress

  • dehydration/not drinking enough pure water

  • chronic illness

  • pesticides in food

  • pollution

  • diets low in nutrients and high in fats, sugars, additives and preservatives

Common signs of impaired lymphatic system include:

  • frequent colds or flus

  • sinus problems

  • lymphedema

  • fibrocystic breasts

  • cystic ovaries

  • heart disease

  • cellulite

  • enlarged prostate

  • enlarged lymph glands

  • cancer

 

Fortunately, even severe impairment of lymphatic health can be restored with lymphatic decongestive therapy.

Lymphatic Congestion & Cancer:

Most people are unaware that we all have cancer cells circulating through our body and that the lymphatic and immune system is what keeps them in check. When the lymphatic system is congested, cancer cells have the perfect environment to propagate. Electro-lymphatic decongestive therapy can assist your body’s natural process of eliminating cancer cells. It supports preventive maintenance as well as boosting the immune system after cancer treatment.

More causes of congestion:

  • Inactivity (lack of exercise)/sedentary lifestyle

  • Improper diet

  • Emotional stress states

  • Repressed communication

  • Chronic Infections (Lyme, EBV, etc)

  • Surgeries (scar tissue and adhesions)

  • Removal of lymph nodes

  • Environmental toxins, exposure to heavy metals, pesticides and herbicides

  • Cancer treatments

  • Hormonal imbalances

  • Illness

  • Impaired circulation

  • Food allergies or sensitivities

  • Normal aging process (everything slows down)

 

DID YOU KNOW?

 

* One out of every eight women will get breast cancer in her lifetime (National Cancer Institute).  Your lymphatic system is responsible for carrying away toxins and other debris and is the only way cancer cells leave the body.

* In women, axillary nodes located in the armpit are the primary channel for releasing accumulated toxins from the breast.

* In men, the inguinal nodes located in the crease of the groin are the primary channel for releasing accumulated toxins from the prostate.

*According to new research, 80% of overweight women and men have sluggish lymphatic systems, and getting the lymph to run smoothly again is key to losing weight and feeling great.

*Many experts believe that the formation of cellulite is related to a sluggish lymphatic system because backed up fluid sticks to fat cells causing cellulite.

* A congested lymphatic system causes waste to track back into the tissues, skin, and joints, adding further stress to the liver.

*Blood flow and lymph flow run parallel, so decongesting your lymphatic system will help your vascular system immensely.
