Your Lymph System – What is it? How does it profoundly affect your energy, your immune system, your sense of well being and your sexual vitality?
The Lymph System is the drainage system in the body. The lymph nodes are bean shaped glands found throughout your body that filter the excess fluids which have been collected for drainage. Lymph nodes play a major role in the body, cleaning and detoxifying the blood supply. This is vital for strong health and for strong immunity.Harmful organisms are trapped and destroyed in the lymph nodes by specialized white blood cells called lymphocytes. Lymphocytes, needed to fight infections, are sent back into the blood with the fluid the lymph nodes have purified. The rest is drained from the body.
Your lymph system is connected by vessels and capillaries just as your cardiovascular system has.
These products do not “cure” colds, but suppress the symptoms. Why is this a problem? Antihistamines and decongestants provide symptomatic relief by closing the ducts that excrete phlegm and mucus in the sinuses and throat, forcing these toxic discharges to back up in your lymphatic system. When fluids are not moving smoothly through the body tissue, fluids can accumulate in the interstitial spaces, producing swelling (edema).
The lymphatic system is the recycling plant of the body, picking up extra debris left in the intercellular tissue, sorting it, recycling what can be used, and discarding the waste.
The lympahtic system is a very iumportant palyer in keeping our sexual organs healthy and clean. Chinese herbalism identifies one of the most powerful tools for enhancing sexual vitality is to release blockage of the flow of energy, and therefore blood and sexual fluids. Using Classic Cleansing and then doing some simple skin brushing everyday can be very powerful help.
Lymph nodes under your jaw: when you have a cold, the lymph nodes under your jaw can swell because they are doing so much work.
You know lymph nodes are under the arm pits, because they are often involved with breast cancer.
You also may know there are lymph nodes along the sides of the femoral and iliac arteries in the lower abdomen. These are the arteries that feed your sexual organs, so besides skin brushing we also include a special Lymphatic Massage (see description below) you can do to enhance and protect your sexual vitality.
You can use 2-3 minutes of “skin brushing” to help the Lymphatic System do its job.
A simple technique called “skin brushing” can be used to support the lymphatic system. Skin Brushing is the brushing of the surface of the body with a soft dry brush. Since many of the lymph canals are close to the surface of the body, brushing can help to move the lymph from the canals.
Dry skin-brushing stimulates the lymph canals to drain toxic mucoid matter into the colon. At some point you may actually notice a gelatinous mucoid material in your stools. This is the wonderful sight of toxic material leaving your body. In addition, if you are skin brushing you are tightening your skin and highly stimulating the surface circulation of your blood. Skin brushing will always leave you feeling invigorated.
The brush: Natural vegetable brush or natural-bristle brush is the best. If the brush has a long handle it makes the brushing quick and easy. The brush should always be used dry.
Skin brushing only needs to be done once a day; morning is the best, but anytime is fine. It only takes a couple of minutes. If you are feeling sluggish you might want to do it twice a day. Your body should be dry and bare. You will sweep the body once or twice in the same direction across every surface except the face. Do not scrub, brush in circles, or massage the body with the brush. Just use long smooth strokes in the general direction of the colon.
Up the arms (hands to shoulders)
Down the neck
Chest/breast area: follow the design of the lymph canals by starting at the sternum (between the breasts) and then brushing in a semi circle up, over each breast and then out and over each shoulder
Out the shoulders from the neck
Down the back and torso
Up the legs (feet to hips)
Up the inside of the legs to the upper inner thigh area (just below the groin)
Up the buttocks
Lie on your back and use your hands to press down on your abdomen in a pumping like motion. You are using the whole hand, massaging upward toward the heart. Let it feel like the belly is undulating like a wave. Press and release quickly, over and over again. Be gentle, but firm. Get a little rhythm going and enjoy the feeling of the wave. This wave will change the pressure gradient in the lower abdomen and stimulate the lymphatic “pumps”.
A lymphatic tune-up can powerfully help your body’s power to detoxify and to protect itself against disease.
Lymphatic massage and skin brushing stimulate the lymph canals to drain toxic mucoid matter into the colon. Traditionally it is used to purify the entire lymphatic system. This allows your lymph system to come back to peak performance, efficiently keeping the blood and other vital tissues detoxified.
Most people today have chronically toxic lymph fluids and swollen lymph nodes. A toxic lymphatic system promotes toxicity throughout the system. This steals from the lymph its power to clean the blood and cellular fluids. It inhibits the production of white blood cells, which can reduce the power of your immune system.
We have a very gentle and safe formula, called Classic Cleansing which is used to dissolve benign lymphatic deposits, release blockage, and renew the Lymphatic System. This is an important formula for women to use once or twice a year, supporting a healthy flow of lymph in the breasts. It is also equally important for men. There are important lymph nodes in the groin area. Keeping our lymph nodes in top notch shape helps the body clear toxins and be in the best fighting shape if real battles are needed.
Caution: do not take another formula where Bupleureum is the first ingredient (for example: Stress Relief, Balance, Harmony, Immune System Formula) unless you check with us on the dosage. The side effect would not be serious, but you might feel a little tense. Bupleureum relaxes, but too much can have the opposite effect.
