Clients have felt spikes in depression, stress, anxiety and insomnia during lymphatic system detoxification. In 2003 I first learned of acid-alkaline balance, especially how an acidic pH can constrict the lymphatic system, the body’s sewage treatment plant. I began working on manually activating the lymphatic system to remove acidic waste and excess proteins from the body to improve health.
For over a year I activated the lymphatic system of hundreds of clients who had many major health problems. They ranged from chronic pain, cancer, heart disease, Multiple Sclerosis, fibromyalgia, swelling, anxiety, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Tourette’s syndrome, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), nerve pain, arthritis, prostate swelling and everything in between.
The clients received LymphPractic, for one-hour on three consecutive days. During these sessions I used the same lymphatic activation routine to increase lymph flow and circulation in the tissues, skin, bones, muscles, organs, central nervous system and brain.
Felt Worse, Then Felt Better
Many clients, after the second day of sessions, experienced an increase in intensity in their specific health problems. Often clients told me they felt a heavy depression and fatigue. Some of these individuals never suffered with depression or fatigue. Some clients felt more anxious or worried, some became more cranky and angry. One petite woman said she smacked her husband across the face during her second night of the detox, something she would never do.
A very large group said they had difficulty sleeping during the second night. A few even had to have someone drive them for their third session because they couldn’t think clearly enough to drive. Some clients also complained about having a bout of diarrhea or constipation during the detox.
These spikes in depression, anxiety, aggression, problems thinking, bowel problems and insomnia occurred because of excess acidic waste being released during the series of manual lymphatic detoxifications. The liberated waste first congests and overwhelms the body and brain. As the excess waste slowly works through the body, they feel better. Most of the time by the third day they felt better and more open. If you have any one of these health problems you need to slowly remove excess acidic waste from your body and brain.
Now when a client is coming in for a lymphatic system detoxification we avoid the severe detox reactions we had in 2003 by explaining how clients need to prepare for their lymphatic sessions. A week before starting lymphatic sessions eat less processed foods, a more alkaline diet, hydrate the body and increase magnesium levels in body. These steps help to make your body pH more in balance improving your lymphatic system detoxification.

I remember watching a documentary on children, many years ago, when one of the children showed signs of clarity in the early stages of autism. This was before I understood the lymphatic system-brain connection in autism. A film crew followed a few families who had multiple children with varying degrees of autism. While watching the documentary, I was struck by one thing that has stayed with me, and it was even talked about in the documentary.
One of the younger children, who was going to different appointments for testing to diagnosis him, was at different times, over months, not showing signs of autism. I have talked to other parents since, who also told me that their child at times was more clear or lucid. What’s happening to allow times of clarity and then regression in cognitive function? It is toxicity from the buildup of acidic cellular waste limiting cognitive function from lymphatic congestion.
Lymphatic System Maintains Brain
New research published in June 2015 by the University of Virginia, School of Medicine links the lymphatic system and brain. That means there is a direct relationship between the brain and lymphatic system that helps to clean it. If the lymphatic system becomes toxic and congested cellular waste can build in the brain. This new research will have implications beyond autism, helping many problems associated with the brain from depression, anxiety, PTSD, insomnia, MS and Alzheimer’s to name only a few. This is a big connection that you want to understand if you are trying to help your child with autism or developmental delays.
In many diseases associated with cognitive function like Batten Disease or Alzheimer’s it is known that excess proteins (parts of cells) are a major contributing factor in losing the ability to think. So when children or for that matter any person has an episode of exhibiting more signs of autism, or foggy thinking, depression, anxiety, insomnia… they are more toxic from their lymphatic system being congested and not able to reabsorb cellular waste optimally.
Less Toxicity Clearer Thinking
The days they are more clear in the ability to think are days of less toxicity and better circulation. So if you or a child are on the spectrum or have problems with how you feel and think the goal is to improve lymph flow and natural detoxification to reduce toxicity. Seeing a lymphatic therapist to manually activate the lymphatic system directly improves the circulation of cerebrospinal fluid and the natural detoxification of proteins from the brain.
When working with a lymphatic therapist it is important to change the cellular environment with alkaline nutrients, hydration and systemic enzymes to help breakdown and flush cellular waste from the body and brain. When the pH of the body and brain are more in balance the tissues relax and the lymphatic system can reabsorb cellular waste.
