Your incredible lymph system

Lymph moves from the feet to the stomach and from the head to the stomach. A good massage therapist knows how to massage gently in the proper directions.

A doctor can routinely test your blood, but not your lymph system, the extensive drainage network that manages the body’s waste. Dead blood cells, heavy metals, bacteria, yeast — much of the body’s pollution — is escorted out the door by the lymph system.

The lymph is a system unto itself. It includes vessels, bone marrow, some 600 lymph nodes and two organs — the spleen and thymus. You could argue that it plays a bigger role in detoxification than its better-known counterpart, the liver.

The lymphatic system also helps keep bodily fluid levels in balance and defends the body against infections. Some literature suggests that your body has as much lymph fluid as blood, or about 5.3 quarts. Lymph works with the circulatory system to deliver nutrients, oxygen and hormones from the blood to the cells that make up the tissues of the body.

Unlike the heart, the lymph system has no physical pump. Mother Nature never figured we would be so sedentary that the lymph would need a pump. Rebounders work well, but that assumes you do not have bad knees or are not in a wheelchair.

Getting your lymph to move can be as simple as contracting a variety of different muscles throughout your body. You can do this while driving or watching TV.

To be good to your lymph, also drink lots of fresh water to help keep it moving. Avoid tight underwear and clothes that restrict the lymphatic flow. Avoid aluminum deodorants that clog lymph nodes in that area. Saunas are good. Coffee enemas are good. So are dry brushing and lymph massages.

Lymph moves from the feet to the stomach and from the head to the stomach. A good massage therapist knows how to massage gently in the proper directions.

Although a blood test cannot tell us whether the lymph system is functioning well, a bio-feedback device such as the SCIO can. It uses tiny electrical signals to paint a picture of what is happening in the system’s vessels and organs.

If blockages are discovered, there are herbal protocols that will clear the lymph so it can get back to its important job of detoxifying. If your doctor does not ask about your lymph system, he may be overlooking a fundamental blockage that will prevent healing.
