The lymphatic system is one important body part we can’t ignore. Yet, many of us underestimate just how important this magnificent, life-enhancing system really is.
The lymphatic system consists of lymph nodes, lymphatic vessels, and lymph. Lymphatic vessels are delicate tubes found throughout the whole body that carry lymph fluid (up to 95% water).
Every day the human body produces waste from the millions of chemical reactions that take place.
Lymph is your body’s river and underground sewer system that gathers and transports waste products for elimination. But unlike the circulatory system, the lymphatic system does not have its own pump (like the heart). So it’s up to us to keep things moving.
Without a properly functioning and flowing lymphatic system, you may experience:
• Bloated stomach or extremities
• Brain fog
• Chronic headaches
• Chronic sinus infections
• Stiff or painful joints
Optimal lymph flow is required to support the removal of waste and toxins from the body. When one or more parts of your lymphatic system are not draining correctly, the following can also occur:
• Chemical residues become trapped cannot be removed.
• Bacteria, mold, and parasites that the body has destroyed cannot be eliminated.
• Old and used immune cells fester and remain stagnant in your lymph.
• Toxic byproducts of normal cell growth and reproduction are trapped within cells.
If your lymph is blocked, it’s imperative you remedy the situation quickly. Colon hydrotherapy, lifestyle changes, and products to encourage proper lymphatic function are important steps to keeping your lymphatic system healthy.
