What is the Lymph system?
The Lymph system is a critical part of the body. It is a network of tissue and organs that rid the body of unwanted materials. Did you know that the human body has more lymph fluid in it than blood? The lymph fluid is collected through lymph tubes to lymph nodes, and empties into the right or left major vein, where it mixes back into the blood.
The lymph system is responsible for processing excess fluids, toxins, foreign substances and cellular waste from all parts of the body. In order for the body to utilize its full elimination and rejuvenation potential, it is vital that lymph drainage pathways are clear for lymphatic tissues to carry toxins and waste to lymph nodes where they can then be purged. In a perfect world these systems would function seamlessly on their own. However, with the stresses, dietary habits, and lack of exercise of modern lifestyles, the lymph system easily becomes overwhelmed and sluggish, thus requiring help to really do its job.
Unlike the cardiovascular system of the body, which has the heart to act as a pump moving blood through the veins, capillaries and arteries, the lymphatic system (which makes up 70% of the body's immune force) relies entirely on a proper diet, daily exercise and healthy lifestyle choices to flow smoothly. Stress, dehydration, imbalances in your diet, lack of muscle movement, and iodine deficiency are common contributors to lymph congestion.
Have you been feeling tired and stiff in the morning, bloated, swollen glands, experiencing low immunity or elevated sensitivity to environmental allergens, dealing with dry skin, mild rash or acne? These are all symptoms of a congested lymph.
This is where Lymphatic Drainage Therapy offers a powerful solution! Through the use of bio-electric technology that taps into the frequency of the lymph system, Lymphatic Drainage Therapy can kick start one of the key players in the detoxification process.
