Looking for a Detox to begin the New Year? Did you know that your body has a natural detoxifying system? Your lymphatic system functions to remove toxins including cancer cells from your body daily.
What is the Lymphatic System?
If you’ve ever woken up with puffy eyes, sinus congestion and a feeling of overall malaise, it is possible that your lymph system is congested and not working optimally. Lymphatic fluid is intracellular fluid that carries waste components from blood to lymph nodes where the waste material is neutralized. The lymphatic system is crucial in your body’s ability to ward off disease and heal from injury. Your body contains double the amount of lymphatic fluid compared to your total blood volume. However, the lymph system unlike the cardiovascular system lacks a pump to circulate the waste material through the body.
When toxins accumulate in the lymphatic system, due to poor nutrition, dehydration, pollution, constipation and lack of exercise, the body becomes sluggish, and poor health is inevitable.
Research has shown a strong relationship between sluggish lymphatic system and chronic illness, weight gain and premature aging. Symptoms of chronic lymphatic congestion are diverse but can include worsened allergies and food sensitivities, frequent cold and flu infections, joint pain, headaches and migraines, menstrual cramps, arthritis, fibrocystic breasts, breast tenderness, sinusitis, loss of appetite and GI issues, muscle cramping, tissue swelling, fatigue, mental fuzziness, mood irregularities, depression, parasites, skin breakouts, acne, and cellulite.
The reality is that you have twice as much lymph fluid in your body than you do blood. The lymph continuously bathes each cell and drains away the detritus in a circulatory system powered only by your breathing and movement. If the movement of the lymph stopped entirely you would die in a matter of hours. Lymph fluid drains toxins, cancer cells, and viruses to lymph nodes to be removed as waste material from the body. The only natural mechanism to move lymph fluid in the body is muscle contraction. However, if the lymph fluid has become congested the fluid will not easily be moved through the lymphatic system resulting in a decreased immune system.
While our bodies are equipped with the system to rid of bodies of toxins, like many other systems in the body, the lymphatic system does not always work with optimal effectiveness. This ineffectiveness leads to the symptoms and conditions we have just described. However, there is a safe, gentle and non-invasive way to stimulate the lymphatic system to work more effectively and efficiently.
Lymphatic drainage has been used to assist in the detoxification of the body since 1935. Lymphatic drainage promotes the movement of the lymph fluid and the removal of toxic matter throughout the body. Medical professionals throughout Europe and Asia recognize the importance of this secondary circulatory system in immune, digestive, nervous system function and detoxification.
Electro-Sound Lymphatic Drainage has added the use of technology to increase drainage effectiveness. It is a gentle, relaxing, non-invasive, accelerated method of cleansing and detoxifying the lymphatic system. This therapy combines mild electrostatic sound waves with inert gas ionization to balance hormones, break up blockages and directly stimulate the neuromuscular system. The results include relief from chronic inflammation, increased circulation, released blockages, proper elimination, cell nourishment and an enhanced immune system.
Electro Lymphatic drainage is up to 12 times more effective than traditional manual lymphatic drainage/massage and heals at a deeper level without applying pressure to the skin. Electro Lymphatic drainage is one of the most effective ways of detoxification. Both blood work and thermography confirm one session alone can reduce the body’s toxin load by as much at 50%
