Draining Your Lymphatic System Could Solve Your Health Issues

The lymphatic system may be one of the most important bodily systems, despite the fact that it rarely gets discussed. The spotlight typically shines on developing immune strength or improving digestive health, but the body can only do these things if the lymphatic system is functioning properly. Establishing healthy lymphatic flow is one of the best ways to ward off illness and disease.

 

What Is The Lymphatic System?

Even though you may not feel it, the lymphatic system is always there, working to dispose of toxins and waste. The circulatory system delivers nutrients to the organs and tissues in the body, and the lymphatic system is like the body’s highway for drainage, ultimately playing a large role in natural detoxification. The lymphatic system also has a hand in developing new T cells, which help protect the body from illness and disease. And the lymph nodes and lymphatic tissues throughout the body work to initiate immune responses to foreign invaders, antigens, and bacteria.

 

How Does The Lymphatic System Get Clogged?

If the lymphatic system didn’t get clogged, we wouldn’t need to write this article. The lymphatic system does not have a pump, unlike your blood, meaning that it relies on the contraction and relaxation of joints and muscles to maintain flow. This means that you are the pump, and being inactive or sedentary means your pump is weak and lymphatic fluid isn’t draining properly. The last thing you want is for your lymphatic system to become stagnant, because that means it is constantly working to dispose of toxins. The longer it takes to eliminate toxins, the greater risk you have of developing:

  • Chronic pain
  • Fatty deposits
  • Arthritis
  • Edema
  • Ear infections
  • Bronchitis, pneumonia, or tonsillitis
  • Chronic sinusitis
  • Cellulite

Now you can see why lymphatic health matters! There’s no need to run and hide because there are easy ways to get your lymphatic system moving again. See below.

 

Exercise:

Since you are the pump that keeps your lymphatic system going, it relies on you to keep it moving. Sedentary people often feel fatigued, achy, stiff, or worn out, but regular movement can get your lymphatic fluid moving. Whether it is walking for 30 minutes per day, jumping rope, swimming, rebounding, or interval workouts, exercise is the best way to improve circulation, increase lymphatic drainage, and get your heart pumping.

 

Eat Clean:

Establishing a clean, healthy eating plan will help you focus on nutrient dense foods that are free of chemicals, antibiotics, and additives, all of which can inhibit proper flow. When you control your external factors, e.g. diet or stress, you can decrease stress in the body. Treat your body right with cruciferous vegetables, leafy greens, berries, omega-3 rich foods, raw nuts and seeds, healthy fats, and beneficial herbs like ginger, turmeric, garlic, and cumin. All of those foods help improve lymphatic flow.

 

Massage:

Who doesn’t love a good massage? Next time you book a massage appointment, try to request a lymphatic massage that specifically targets lymphatic flow. The massage therapist will apply pressure and rhythmic movements in specific areas that stimulate the drainage of fluid and waste. Studies have shown that lymphatic massages can push up to 78% of stagnant lymph back into circulation.

 

Use Essential Oils:

Essential oils have been known to encourage lymphatic drainage, especially when you massage them around the inner and outer thighs, armpits, knees, and abdomen. Do not apply essential oils directly on the skin; rather, mix them with carrier oils like coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil, or jojoba oil. Massage in a circular, clockwise motion to move stagnant lymph nodes. The best oils to use include lemon essential oil, oregano essential oil, rosemary essential oil, helichrysum essential oil, or lemongrass essential oil.

 

Dry Brushing:

Dry brushing benefits both the circulatory and lymphatic systems. It is a practice that is very easy to do, so long as you have a brush with stiff bristles. Always brush towards your chest, starting from your hands and ankles. Be sure not to dry brush too hard, especially if you have sensitive skin. The reason you brush toward your chest is because that is where the lymphatic system drains. Click here for a more in depth article about dry brushing.

    Q: I purchased the Blood and Lymphatic Tea, and after drinking one glass I had an allergic reaction. Hours later, it caused my face to break out in small bumps. Is this common? Is it my system cleansing itself? Could it have happened because of something else, I ate or drank after drinking the tea? Is it returnable if my system cannot handle it?

    A:

    We explain what you're experiencing in the articles "Healing Crisis" and "Is This Normal?" as this is a common question so we wrote articles to address it. No returns for opened products.

    Q: My question is that if my lymphatic system leading to my breast is clogged, is that why my breast is hard and swollen and will your recommendation help with this area also?

    A:

    Yes, If it's hard, the clogging is caused by mucus, arterial plaque, etc. Breast tissue is normally soft so if it's not soft, then something is making it hard. The recommendation will help you, Beloved. Drink plenty of vegetable juice daily and perform the sea salt soak daily (see article "SEA SALT SOAK").

    Q: I received the product of BLOOD AND LYMPHATIC FORMULA formula last Wednesday, took it on Thursday and was rushed to the emergency room. I followed the directions on the bottle and the diagnosis by the doctor was gastroenteritis or food poisoning. It has made me to stop the product for my skin disorder or eczema. What should I Do? I have now stopped taking the blood and lymphatic tea and the formula. Help me please I think I was allergic to it. The doctor said I should not take it.

    A:

    No! No! No! Beloved! There's no allergic reaction to herbs. There's only "HEALING CRISIS" and LAW OF CURE that unfortunately so many people don't understand despite our explaining this i.e. "DETOX TROUBLESHOOTING", "FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS PAGE", and article entitled "HEALING CRISIS" which we are also finding out that people are not reading, so when they do experience healing crisis or the law of cure the first place they run to is the doctor, the #1 poisoners on the planet. Before I go any further, what were you rushed to the hospital for? What were your symptoms?

    Q: While I know by experience that herbs can have a healing effect, You say that clearly, "Sarcoidosis affects the glands", the inner and outer skin, and the lymphatic system. Sarcoidosis is a degenerative disease, and is therefore due to improper diet. You don't mention at any stage that it is an auto immune disease. To say that diet alone can cause one's immune system to attack the body, and major organs (which you don't mention anywhere) seems very simplistic. I may be wrong, but I hope you are not just raising hopes for all the sufferers out there. My sister has sarcoidosis.

    A:

    Beloved, why would I want to in futile and falsely raise innocent people's hopes and create bad karma for myself? I'm not one of the unscrupulous Christian ministers who do such, Beloved. I'm a wise natural healer. I have no incentive in raising false hopes. Life is not joke nor is suffering! Sarcoidoisis is a PREVENTABLE and REVERSIBLE disease which means it is diet related. A disease is preventable because eating wrong foods can be prevented. A disease is reversible because poor diet is reversible. Research the medical term "degenerative disease" and you'll understand where I'm coming from. I'm not one to embrace auto-immune disease because when the body turns on itself that's not natural. The person did something to make their body attack itself. People invite disease, Ma'am via WRONG DIET, WRONG THOUGHTS, WRONG ACTIONS, etc. If she was born with sarcoidosis, she picked up in life, a life that she led pursuant to her own free will. I say again: YOU CAN heal from any disease! If you believe you can, you can. If you believe you can't, you can't! It IS that simple! Jesus (not that you may be a Christian, I'm just quoting) stated: If thou canst belive, all things are possible to him that believeth!

    Q: My sister and I both have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, except my sister has a very severe form of the disease. She has a very irregular menstrual cycle, has severe water retention-- especially with swelling in the face, feet and hands. She constantly has a dull stomachache and cannot lose weight. Doctors seem to only prescribe antibiotics for the recurrent infections (stomach) she has and I am sure they're killing off the good bacteria in her body. We are now ready to turn to natural remedies and I was thinking a cleanse may be a good start. What might you recommend for some of her symptoms?especially something to cleanse the blood and promote lymphatic drainage?

    Q: Hi. I'm a 39 year old female who had a lump in her breast removed but it came back six months later. So I tried a poultice for three days on it and I don't know what went wrong. Now it"s like my whole lymphatic system leading to my breast is shut off. There is swelling and hardness of my tissue in my breast. I went to a naturopath doctor who said that it wasn't cancer but did not give me any solution to my problem. This has been going on now for three months and I'm very much in distress but I don't want to go to a conventional doctor to have my breast removed. Is there any natural remedy for me?

    A:

    I'm working on a new breast care article at present. Perform the Full Body Detox and rub on our FEMALE BREAST OILsimultaneously. Drinking FEMALE HEALTH TEA is also ideal. Hang in there and think positive. You'll be alright, as long as you believe you will.

    Q: I did the Full Body Detox and it worked great. I went on the Cardio-Vascular, Cholesterol Buster, and the Khemetian Gold, (going on the 3rd week) but my blood pressure and cholesterol are up (went to the Dr. last Friday, BP up (187/102) and today he called me with my cholesterol findings. I don't want to get back on the medication (I did increase my Cardio-Vascular to 6 a day. I did order last Saturday Blood & Lymphatic, Circul-aid, and Intestinal Janitor). I want this to work can you give me some direction. I don't want to have a stroke or heart attack. I'm 55 and a Black female.

    A:

    How do you feel? This is what counts!

    What are you eating? Are you eating eggs, dairy, and meat products? Don't concentrate on what you don't want (i.e. having to go back on meds). Think about being med free and healthy! Stick with your regimen. It took time to get messed up, it will take time to heal. Healing requires patience!

    Q: My daughter has been diagnosis with shingles, in your manual you suggest taking the anti-viral, blood and lymphatic, and the immune booster formulas, my question is will this help with the pain as she heals and should she first do the FBD or do both at the same time. She is at the point now that the doctors are suggesting steroids, having severe headaches on the right side of her head it feels like an electric shock and her body is sensitive to the touch. Needs help with the pain if she can't afford to get all three formulas which one of the three could she get now to help until she can get the other two? Being stressed really brings it on. I didn't see anything about shingles in your article that's why I'm writing.

    A:

    Opt for the NERVES FORMULA and HEADACHE AND PAIN FORMULA. More importantly, she should avoid stress at all costs.

    Q: Is black cohosh good for clearing out the lymph system? My doctor says my tests are all normal but I've had painful armpit lymph nodes now for 7 weeks! I haven't had anything like this since the 80's when I had mononucleosis. I am a diet and exercise controlled type 2 diabetic. I'm also wondering if the ibuprofen I take for sciatica has triggered this weird reaction. The doctor keeps saying my tests are all fine but I know my glands are unhappy. I also am just starting menopause. I am about to go on a 3 week detox. Do you suggest any herbs?

    A:

    Black Cohosh is a great female tonic herb but if you want a great lymph cleansing herb, you should try LOBELIA, RED ROOT, WILD INDIGO BARK, CLEAVERS, GOLDENSEAL, ECHINACEA, or MULLEIN LEAF.

    You should consider detoxifying your body. Please give our Full Body Cleanse a try. It can provide a myriad of benefits for you and your body.

    Q: I purchased the FULL BODY DETOX two months ago and the first day I took the first 5 pills at 7am (Blood and Lymphatic) and at 8am I was vomiting all over the place at work. I was so weak I couldn't function someone from work had to drive me home and that whole day I was sick as a dog as if I had stomach virus or the flu. I had diarrhea at the same time. I want to know if this was a normal reaction to the herbs. I only took 5 I couldn't imagine how the rest of my day would have went had I taken the full 30 pills a day (which I didn't know I had to take until I received the package that wasn't indicated on the website that I had to take 30 pills a day). Was this reaction normal? Please someone let me know if it is safe to continue the product. I couldn't send the product back because of course it had been open so since I paid 120.00 for it I would like to see if it's really what everyone says about it. I don't want to let anyone else know about the product after what happened to me. I have read the reviews and all are great no one has experienced what I've went through so far. Your response to this matter is greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Q: Is dry skin brushing safe while breast feeding (especially if I brush in circular around the lymph nodes)? Are ginger baths, or other detoxing, relaxing, salts baths safe? Are body wraps safe?

    A: Dry skin brushing is safe to do while breastfeeding.  It helps promote circulation in the body.  You can do any kind of natural bath soaks including the ginger or sea salt soaks.  Unfortunately you can't cleanse while breastfeeding, but there are other ways to detox the body safely.  We suggest that you try the Electric Greens Combo and the Pre-Natal Laxative to naturally and safely detox your body while breast feeding.
