Detoxify Lymphatic System to Improve Health Quickly
Detoxification is the body’s natural, ongoing process of eliminating harmful toxins from the body so that it can function at its best. We are exposed to 82,000 different toxins weekly, including man-made chemicals found in the air, water, food, household cleaners and cosmetic products as well as waste products produced by normal cellular activity.
Detox program improves health quickly
The lymphatic system is responsible for the removal of wastes from every cell in the body and regulating the immune system.
When toxins enter the body, it prevents “pollution” by surrounding them with fat and water and stores them in different areas of the body. The body’s detox systems (liver, intestines, kidneys, lungs, skin, blood and lymphatic systems) can become burdened as they try to safely excrete toxins.
Adding a detox program to your wellness regimen can help pull these toxins, along with the excess fat and water, out of the body and improve your health quickly.
Lymph drainage eliminated toxins
Proper functioning of the lymphatic system is essential in order to properly eliminate wastes. Our lymphatic system can become and remain congested and stagnant for many years as we often live in an environment of toxins that weakens our immunity. Proper lymph drainage will eliminate these toxins and assist the body to function optimally.
Digestion and the lymphatic system
Detoxification starts in the digestive system. Lacteals, found in the villae of the small intestine, are part of the lymphatic system and pull nutrients and fat-soluble toxins off the intestinal wall. If the gut is constipated or there is excessive reactive mucus bogging down the villae, the lymph and its white blood cells may not provide immunity or detoxification.
The highest concentration of lymph, called the Gut Associated Lymphoid Tissue (GALT), is located outside of the wall of the gut and protects the intestinal tract from toxins and undesirable microbes to which it is often exposed.
Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD)
Lymph vessels are also found under our skin throughout the body. They support circulation, drainage of waste and immunity. When lymph flow is reduced and the lymph becomes congested as toxins build, the skin appears dull and an unsightly appearance is yielded in the feet, legs, thighs, hips, belly and arms.
MLD also helps to support the healthy function of the immune system and the autonomic nervous system, thereby reducing stress. The therapy cleanses the connective tissue of wastes, decongests and reduces edema, pain and swelling.
Benefits of Manual Lymph Drainage Therapy
• Faster recovery, less scarring from surgery and other types of trauma by making lymph flow faster and stimulating the formation of new connections between lymph vessels
• Clears congestive conditions such as chronic sinusitis, bronchitis, acne, and headaches
• Strengthens the immune system
• Relieves heaviness, tightness and swelling in lymphedema.
• Increases overall relaxation by decreasing stress
• Relieves retention of fluids during pregnancy and menstrual cycle
• Decreases local edemas and hematomas from orthopedic surgery, cosmetic surgery scars, and burn scars; leading to a decreased in healing time and increase in client mobility
• People who suffer from insomnia, stress, fibromyalgia, and autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis, lupus, and rheumatism benefit greatly from MLD
