Have you discovered the power of your body’s Lymphatic System? It deserves a second in the spotlight! I want to shine the light on this system and give it the credit it deserves. Your lymphatic system is a river of life flowing through you from head to toe! 

Your lymphatic system is a vast complex network of nodes, vessels, organs and fluids, and plays a significant role in everything from immunity and disease prevention to improved digestion, reducing inflammation and soaring energy levels! It is essential to your overall mind, health and well-being; however, it is often forgotten. Neglecting this system causes stagnation, and cripples the body’s defenses against autoimmune disorders, fatigue, cancer, and many other chronic diseases.

How does your lymphatic system get clogged? Your body is a detox battlefield, and honestly you may not be winning. Every day you face an onslaught of toxins in your food, water, air and environment … these toxins overwhelm our bodies resulting in illness. Even biotoxins, mold and pathogens, viruses and parasitic infections will cause a slow and congested lymphatic system. Dehydration is also a huge contributor to a sluggish lymphatic system, so staying hydrated is critical. Just as a stagnant river gets polluted with trash and stops flowing, the same thing happens to your lymphatic system. It’s time to get your river flowing!

Here are some common symptoms of a congested lymphatic system:

  • Fluid Retention 
  • Puffiness
  • Digestive Issues
  • Bloating
  • Constipation
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Allergies
  • Autoimmune Disorders
  • Brain Fog
  • Frequent Illness
  • Food Sensitivities
  • Cellulite
  • Hormonal Imbalances
  • Weight Gain
  • Sinus Congestion

If you can relate to any of these symptoms, please know that this isn’t a normal way to feel. These are signs that your lymphatic system isn’t functioning well, and you need to give it the attention it deserves. Keep reading to learn how to win the battle!

What can you do to support your lymphatic system? Unlike the circulatory system, your lymphatic system does not have a pump; therefore, it needs some assistance from you to keep it moving. There are many ways to optimize your lymphatic health. Lymphatic drainage therapy is the most effective way to get your lymphatic system unclogged and moving, because it gently vibrates and stimulates lymphatic flow throughout the entire body. Other lifestyle habits, such as daily exercise and a healthy diet, combined with dry brushing, and herbal supplements complement lymphatic drainage therapy to keep this vital system functioning well. 

Let’s redefine the way you look at wellness and longevity by including the lymphatic system in the conversation. When you improve your lymphatic function, the whole body benefits.  You will feel a sense of well-being, better sleep, energy, mental clarity, stronger immune system and feeling less overall stress. If you want to feel your best, and restore your health, then give this system love and it will give LIFE back to you!
