When a parent brings a child on the spectrum to improve their lymphatic system they should know what to expect to see the next day. Here is what to expect after improving the lymphatic system with autism. I have had a few parents of children on and off the autism spectrum who after their child or teen had a lymphatic drainage session were surprised their child had a meltdown or was extremely lethargic, almost ca later in the day or the next day. This is not a typical detox reaction but it does occur, especially after the initial session to improve the lymphatics. The reason this Herzheimer reaction occurs is due to the release of cellular waste that has been trapped in the tissues for a long time. The cellular waste at first makes the body more acidic and toxic. As the body metabolizes the released waste over hours to a few days the client feels better. In my office and in my coaching, I try and avoid a detox reaction by starting slower and preparing the client. Improving the lymphatic system is an important missed step in helping those on the spectrum have a better quality of life.
When you have been dealing with acid reflux and GERD for an extended period it can lead to damage of the cells of the esophagus called Barrett’s esophagus. You can help Barrett’s Esophagus with lymphatic system detoxification. One cause of Barrett’s esophagus is repeated exposure to stomach acid which damages the cells in the lower esophagus. You can improve healing of Barrett’s by activating the lymphatic system with a healthier more alkaline diet, basic supplements, and sessions of LymphPractic or self-lymphatic drainage. These steps improve lymph flow, circulation and natural detoxification of acidic cellular waste that is damaging the esophagus. When you maintain your lymphatic system you gain more control over your health.
For some people, chronic headaches are a regular occurrence and can limit their life. You can help chronic headaches by improving the lymph-brain connection. In 2015 researchers found lymphatic vessels in the brain. In 2017 researchers found the major outflow of cerebrospinal fluid was through lymphatic vessels. Most headaches have been found to be due to inflammation. What is inflammation? Inflammation is the buildup of cellular waste, fluid, and other debris in the body or brain that cannot be reabsorbed by the lymphatic system or veins. As this cellular waste and fluid build in the body and brain, it limits circulation which can create inflammation and pressure in the head. By detoxing and maintaining your lymphatic system you can help to alleviate inflammation to reduce pressure and pain in your head.
