amazing lymphatic system
The predominant fluid in
your body is lymphatic fluid. This fluid carries nutrients from
the food you eat and oxygen from the air you breathe. It also carries
toxic poisons, bacteria, cholesterol and viruses away from the cells
in your body. Since there is no pump (like the heart for blood)
to push this fluid through the body, it is only moved by deep breathing,
stretching, vigorous exercise, gravitational force and massage.
Manual lymph drainage improves the flow of lymphatic fluid by using
light, rhythmic strokes.
Circulation massage therapy
has been found to be the most efficient method of stimulating lymphatic
circulation. The pulsating action of circulation massage therapy
causes the millions of one-way valves that regulate the flow of
fluid to open and close thus allowing a healthy surge of lymphatic
fluid throughout the entire body. Manual lymph drainage is primarily
used for conditions related to poor lymph flow, such as edema, inflammation,
and neuropathies. Lymphatic Drainage Massage can be one of the most
healthy massage benefits. Repeated circulation therapy thus creates
a continuous flow of lymphatic fluid nourishing and cleansing your
cells that literally flush your system of harmful wastes and poisons
while increasing your resistance to sickness and disease.
you have any stress, either mental or physical,
you are going to have areas of restricted lymphatic flow.
Lymphatic fluid is vital to the life process, bathing all the cells,
it acts as a medium of exchange; trading food for the cells for
the waste products. This waste contains microorganisms, damaged
cells, and protein molecules that are too large or too toxic to
go directly into the blood stream through the capillary walls.
When the lymphatic system slows down, these waste products accumulate
and stagnate which causes the heavy feeling in your limbs and the
overall fatigue experienced in a sedentary life style.
The lymphatic system is a complicated
network of vessels, ducts, and nodes that move fluid between the
cells and tissues. It is the most underrated part of the circulatory
system in the human body. And sadly, many health-care practitioners
rarely consider the critical role lymph plays in preventing sickness
and keeping us healthy.
Our lymphatic system is primarily responsible
for carrying disease-fighting material to cells attacked by germs,
transporting the dead germs away and supplying protein-rich plasma
fluid back to the heart. When this system is blocked, we become
defenseless against attacks by virus, fungi, and bacteria.
Unlike your venous system, your lymphatic system
has no pumping mechanism to keep the fluid circulating through the
body. Therefore, the lymphatic system is always at a higher risk
for blockage. Blockages can occur from normal stressors such as:
- Tight-fitting clothing
including bras, ties, jockey shorts & pantyhose
- Lack of exercise
- Bumps, bruises, and
- Exposure to heavy metals,
pesticides and herbicides
- Impaired circulation
- Food allergies or sensitivities
did you know that...
- Your lymphatic system is actually a vital
circulatory system with an extensive network of vessels throughout
- Your body contains about 50% more lymphatic
fluid than blood.
- Your lymphatic system contains over 600 collection
sites called lymph nodes.
- These nodes are formed at the junction sites
of the lymph vessel network.
- Your lymphatic system is responsible for
supplying plasm-rich protein to your blood as well as carrying
away toxins and other debris.
- Your lymphatic system is your primary defense
against bacteria, viruses and fungus.
- Most chronic (disease) problems occur at
the junction of lymph vessels called lymph nodes.
- In men the inguinal nodes, in the crease
of the groin, are the primary channel for release of accumulated
lymh from the prostrate.
- In women the axillary nodes, located in the
arm pit, are the primary channel for releasing accumulated lymph
from the breasts.
- Cellulite is primarily blocked lymphatic
an impaired or disfunctional
lymphatic system can result in...
- Colds, Flu and Sinus
- Edema & Excess Water
- Heart Disease
- Fibrocystic & Tender
- Enlarged Prostate
Receiving Massage can
provide relaxation, circulation, increase the removal of toxins
to promote health and can be of great benefit
for postoperative recovery, to persons suffering from edema and
anyone with recurrent sinusitis, allergies and more.
