Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is characterized by extreme fatigue, sleep disturbances and pain. Chronic fatigue syndrome can be helped with lymphatic system detoxification. Chronic fatigue is a syndrome, and not actually a disease or virus. This basically means that it’s a set of symptoms that fit together to pinpoint a certain condition, although it isn’t a specific disease. Those with chronic fatigue may present with impaired memory/concentration, sore throat, tender neck or armpit lymph nodes, muscle pain,anxiety, headaches, disturbed sleep, relapse of symptoms after exercise ( post exertional malaise) that lasts more than 24 hours, pain in multiple joints without swelling or redness. Many of the symptoms associated with CFS are signs of a congested lymphatic system. When the lymphatic system is overwhelmed you become toxic from the buildup of acidic cellular waste. The goal in chronic fatigue is to balance pH and improve the lymphatic system to reduce toxicity and inflammation.
If you are having difficulty remembering or have foggy thinking there is an answer. You can help foggy thinking by improving lymph flow. The lymphatic system has been found to be the major outflow of cerebrospinal fluid out of the brain. That means if your lymphatic system is not working optimally you can have excess fluid and cellular waste buildup in the head, creating foggy thinking. Improving lymph flow can help foggy thinking, chemo brain and fibro brain fog. Many people can’t think when they have sinus problems or a cold. Often they take a decongestant and they feel less congested and can think better. The medication is drying up the excess fluid improving how they think. Unfortunately, you can become dehydrated from excessive use of decongestants. You can improve lymph flow by helping to balance the body’s pH, with an alkaline diet and an alkaline supplement like magnesium. Manually draining the lymphatic system can dramatically help relieve excess fluid and foggy thinking.
You can help inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) with lymphatic system detoxification to help reduce inflammation. Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis are very different inflammatory bowel diseases. Both may present with any of the following symptoms: abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, rectal bleeding, severe internal cramps/muscle spasms in the region of the pelvis and weight loss. Anemia is the most prevalent extra-intestinal complication of inflammatory bowel disease. The lymphatic system plays a large role in maintaining the health of your intestines.
There are over 200 lymph nodes and hundreds of lymph vessels in the abdomen. There are three lymphatic vessels, called the cisterna chyli that must reabsorb fluid from the legs, intestines and pelvic organs When the lymphatic system can’t clean your intestines of cellular waste and fluid efficiently, inflammation builds in the intestines. To help inflammatory bowel disease you must balance the body’s pH, to improve lymph flow. To help balance pH it is important to reduce processed foods, eat more fruits, vegetables and probiotic rich fermented foods. Including LymphPractic or Lymph Drainage Therapy sessions or learning to self-drain your lymphatics can help you have more control over your inflammatory bowel disease.
Learn the best way to improve your lymphatic system. Everyone has a lymphatic system, a tiny network of vessels and nodes that helps to clean most systems of their body. If you could manually activate your lymphatic system, you would immediately improve lymph flow, circulation and natural detoxification. By manually improving lymph flow you will also be improving your immune response. Learn how to open the lymphatics in the shoulders with the “LymphMan Shoulder Shuffle” and manually draining the major lymph drains under the clavicles.
Most of you have probably had a migraine before, pressure, throbbing and pain. Most migraines are helped with lymphatic system detoxification to help reduce inflammation. Symptoms associated with migraines, may include nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light, sound, or smell. The pain is generally made worse by any physical activity. Up to one-third of people have an aura: typically a short period of visual disturbance which signals that the headache will soon occur. Occasionally, an aura can occur with little or no headache following it.
Recent research has found that lymphatic vessels handle the majority of cerebrospinal fluid outflow from the brain. If the lymphatic vessels become blocked, cerebrospinal fluid builds in the brain and you feel pressure, creating aura’s and migraines. To help migraines it is important to improve lymph flow, to improve circulation and natural detoxification to reduce inflammation. The first step is cutting out processed foods, grains, flour, coffee, tea, sodas, and reduce consumption of red meat. Try eating more alkaline fruits and vegetables to help balance the body’s pH to improve lymph flow. Magnesium supplements have been shown to help headaches and migraines.
