Help Being Nauseous by Balancing an Acidic pH

If you are feeling nauseous, then you may be overly acidic. You can help being nauseous by balancing an acidic pH. I was nauseous for years before I realized an acidic pH was creating my nauseousness. Since balancing my pH with a more alkaline diet, supplements, exercise and self-lymphatic drainage I have not been nauseous. When you are nauseous you have an imbalance in your body.


Podcast 72 Sitting for Long Periods Is Damaging Your Health

man sitting over computerSitting for long periods is damaging to your health. Do you know how long you sit during the entire day?  Do you sit for 6 hours or more? For many of you sitting at work and home you may be totaling 10-12 hours. When you sit for extended periods you are limiting your circulation. Your cells which make up everything in your body and brain and are dependent on good circulation to deliver oxygen, nutrition and help detoxification of their waste products. The lymphatic system completes circulation through the body and brain. Helping to improve your lymphatic system with a more alkaline diet, basic supplements, exercise, lymphatic drainage sessions or self-lymphatic drainage can counteract the negative effects of sitting for long periods.

Help ADHD, Digestive and Skin Issues in Children

Many children are diagnosed with ADHD and have other health issues like digestive or skin issues. You can help ADHD, digestive and skin issues in children by improving their lymphatic system. The lymphatic system helps to maintain every system in the body even the brain. When the body becomes overly acidic the lymphatic system cannot efficiently clean cellular waste from the brain, skin or digestive tissues, this creates inflammation and disease. Make a difference in your child’s life by learning how to detox and maintain their lymphatic system.


Podcast 71 Prepare for Cosmetic Surgery With Lymphatic System Detoxification

SurgeryWhen you are going for cosmetic surgery, whether it is for a breast lift, eyelid surgery or a tummy tuck, you will heal faster and have less scarring when you include lymphatic system detoxification. It doesn’t matter what procedure you are having from a tummy tuck, eyelid lift, breast lift or augmentation, you should prepare for cosmetic surgery with lymphatic system detoxification to help reduce the buildup of scar tissue and inflammation. To prepare for cosmetic surgery it is advisable to start a couple of weeks before surgery. Begin by limiting processed foods, eating more fruits and vegetables, taking magnesium, being well hydrated and manually improving your lymphatic system can help you heal faster after cosmetic surgery.


Podcast 70 Improve Thyroiditis – Thyroid Inflammation with Improved Lymph Flow

Thyroiditis - Thyroid Gland TorsoWhen you have thyroiditis or thyroid inflammation, your thyroid may be sensitive to touch, you may have discomfort when turning your head or swallowing. You can improve thyroiditis, thyroid inflammation, with improved lymph flow. Common symptoms of thyroid inflammation You can have no symptoms, or may experience: excess sweating, fatigue, heat intolerance, or feeling cold, Digestive problems: unusually frequent defecation or water retention, anxiety or nervousness, weight gain or weight loss, abnormal protrusion of eyes or puffy eyes.

The thyroid is right next to the major lymph vessels in the neck. When the lymphatic system in the thyroid cannot reabsorb cellular waste, immune cells and fluid it can build in the thyroid creating swelling and damage to the thyroid cells limiting the thyroid function. By improving lymph flow in the shoulders and neck you can help improve circulation and natural detoxification to help the thyroid.

Podcast 69 Reduce Breast Inflammation with Improved Lymph Flow

Woman checking for breast inflammationBreast inflammation can occur in both males and females, though the majority of breast inflammation occurs in woman. You can reduce breast inflammation with improved lymph flow. Inflammation and pain in the breast can be caused by overly acidic tissues, I call this tissue acidosis. When the lymph nodes in the axilla are not working efficiently cellular waste builds in the underarm limiting lymph flow and circulation out of the breast. Overtime inflammation builds in the tissues of the breast, creating a breeding ground for disease. Manually draining the mammary nodes (below the underarm), and the underarm can help improve lymph flow and circulation in the breast tissue. To help reduce inflammation it is important to eat a more alkaline diet of fruits and vegetables.

Help Back Pain With Lymphatic System Detoxification

Back pain can be debilitating. You can help back pain with lymphatic system detoxification. Pain is often from congestion in the tissues, this can occur from trauma, surgery, medications, being overly acidic or being sedentary. This congestion creates an acidic environment that inflames the tissues creating pain. By improving lymph flow in the area you can reduce pain and help manage your pain. You can receive a lymphatic session from a lymphatic therapist or learn how to self-drain your lymphatic system. Improving lymph flow in the body helps circulation and natural detoxification to help change the environment in the tissues where you have your pain.

Podcast 67 Improving Lymph Flow Can Help Children With Developmental Disorders

John and Client with Developmental DelaysIf your child has a developmental delay they can benefit from improving their lymphatic system. Improving lymph flow can help children with developmental delays by improving circulation and natural detoxification in the body and brain. Their are many forms of developmental disorders, from Autism Spectrum Disorders, Intellectual disabilities, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy or brain injury. You have to look at each child and their specific health problems. Is their body tight, do they have outbursts and do they have appliances like a palate-expander. I can tell you many of the children I see with developmental delays are looser, more relaxed and look forward to their LymphPractic session. LymphPractic is a fully clothed lymphatic session that helps to release restrictions in the body and brain to improve circulation and quality of life.


Podcast 66 Help Headaches with Lymphatic System Detoxification

Woman with severe Migraine Headache holding hands to headYou are very lucky if you have never had a bad headache. If you suffer with the pain and throbbing of headaches, you can help headaches with lymphatic system detoxification. A headache is not actually a pain in your brain. Most headaches occur in the nerves, blood vessels, and muscles that cover a person’s head and neck. Headaches have been found to be from inflammation. In 2015 lymphatic vessels were found in the brain. In 2017 lymphatic vessels were found to be the major out flow of cerebrospinal fluid. So, there is a large lymph-brain connection that can be used to relieve pain by reducing inflammation and pressure from the tissues of the brain. Learning to use diet, basic supplements and self-lymphatic drainage can help you have more control over your headaches.


LymphPractic is a Whole Body Tuneup Using the Lymphatic System

LymphPractic is bodywork developed by John Ossipinsky to address the buildup of cellular waste in the body and brain. LymphPractic is a whole body tuneup using the lymphatic system to improve circulation and natural detoxification. Inflammation and pain can begin when cellular waste builds in the body and brain limiting circulation. In just a few sessions of LymphPractic clients feel better mentally and physically. Maintaining your lymphatic system with LymphPractic can help you have more control over your health. The lymphatic system helps maintain every system. Maintaining your lymphatic system can help most health problems from pain, insomnia, weak immune system, depression, foggy thinking, even weight gain.

Podcast 65 Help Post Traumatic Stress Disorder by Improving the Lymph-Brain Connection

3D illustration of 'PTSD' title on medical document(Posttraumatic Stress Disorder) conceptPost-traumatic stress disorder can affect anyone, it is especially found in veterans. PTSD is a disorder that develops in some people who have experienced a shocking, scary, or dangerous event. You can help post-traumatic stress disorder by improving the lymph-brain connection. The “fight-or-flight” response is a normal reaction meant to help protect a person from harm. Almost everyone will experience a range of reactions after trauma, most people will recover from their initial symptoms naturally. Those who continue to experience problems with how they feel mentally and physically may be diagnosed with PTSD. People who have PTSD often feel stressed or frightened, even when they are not in danger. Learning how to use diet, basic supplements, lymphatic drainage sessions or self-lymphatic drainage can help you better manage your PTSD and life. Learn more about maintaining your lymphatic system to help how you feel.


Podcast 64 Lymphatic System Detoxification Helps Lyme Disease

Tablet with the diagnosis Lyme Disease on the displayLymphatic system detoxification helps Lyme disease. I was fortunate to work with many clients with Lyme disease. Their symptoms ranged from digestive issues, heart disease, inflamed joints, extreme fatigue and serious neurologic Lyme and associated brain fog. Most of the clients were already seeing a Naturopathic physician and on a Lyme protocol of antibiotics, IV’s of vitamin C and glutathione, Meyers Cocktail, and  any number of treatments to clean the blood. I believe when a person with Lyme has difficulty in recovering after their first round of antibiotics and other treatments that their lymphatic system may have been compromised. When you have Lyme, you have more cellular waste in your tissues due to the bacteria. When you kill off the bacteria it will also create an extreme amount of cellular die off that can overwhelm an already overwhelmed lymphatic system. When the lymphatic system is compromised cellular waste can build in the joints, heart, digestive tissues or brain creating the many symptoms associated with Lyme disease. Including lymphatic sessions or learning how to do self-lymphatic drainage is an important part to helping Lyme disease.


Lymphatic System Detoxification Helps Psoriasis

John Ossipinsky explains how lymphatic system detoxification helps psoriasis. Many people suffer with red, irritated, scaly skin associated with psoriasis. If not managed it can progress to psoriatic arthritis, where the joints become stiff and inflexible from the buildup of cellular waste. The key here is cellular waste building in the body. The same waste can be causing the inflamed scaly skin and psoriatic arthritis. When the lymphatic system cannot reabsorb cellular waste and immune cells efficiently, they can build in the body creating inflammation and stiffness. By maintaining your lymphatic system with diet, supplements and self- lymphatic drainage you can better manage your psoriasis and help psoriatic arthritis. Learn more about maintaining your lymphatic system.

Podcast 63 Help Control Lipedema (Lipoedema) with Lymphatic System Detoxification

Lymphatic Vessels of the Leg, vintage engraved illustration. Lipedema or Lipoedema in Europe, is a growing problem affecting mostly woman. You can help control lipedema (lipoedema) with lymphatic system detoxification. Lipedema is an accumulation of fat in the subcutaneous tissue, this is not ordinary fat, it is hard and not easily broken down. Fat builds mostly in the legs and buttocks, it can build in the arms, creating fat pads around the elbows. Lipedema does not respond well to dietary changes that may help others lose weight. In my opinion an acidic pH plays a role in why the lymphatics are compromised. Lymphatic system detoxification; balancing pH and manually improving lymph flow can help you have better control over inflammation and lipedema.

Lose Weight with Lymphatic System Detoxification and Keep It Off

If you are having problems losing weight and keeping it off, you can lose weight with lymphatic system detoxification. Two studies in 2005 linked fat and obesity to damaged lymph vessels. Researchers damaged the Prox1 gene in the leg of mice and saw that the lymphatic vessels were ruptured and leaky. The legs of the mice became fat. If the lymphatic system cannot reabsorb cellular waste and fats from the tissues you become fat. If you want to lose weight and keep it off, you must maintain your lymphatic system. When you maintain your lymphatic system by eating more alkaline, taking alkalizing supplements and manually maintaining your lymphatic system you gain more control over your weight.

Lymph Fluid Can Be Thick and Not Flow Optimally

In order to have health, your body fluids; blood, lymph and interstitial fluids must be able to flow. Did you know that lymph fluid can be thick and not flow optimally? When you had a virus, are chronically dehydrated, take medications or are overly acidic your lymph flow can slow and not flow well. When the lymphatic system cannot reabsorb cellular waste and fats, they can build in the body, limiting circulation and creating inflammation and toxicity. Learn how to use diet, supplements and self-lymphatic drainage to improve lymph flow to dramatically improve circulation and natural detoxification to improve your health.


Podcast 62 Raise Healthy Children with Lymphatic System Detoxification

crying newborn babyThe lives of children are affected by ailments like eczema, digestive issues, sleep problems and cognitive problems.

Throughout your child’s life there are times when you should be maintaining their lymphatic system to improve gentle detoxification.

In the womb your child has been all cramped up for nine months. Receiving a lymphatic session right after birth can help alleviate many small health problems that may be due to limited circulation. Help reduce the inflammation from vaccinations by maintaining your child’s lymphatic system between vaccinations.  If you are breastfeeding check your pH, you may be souring your breast milk making your child acidic an sick. When you take steps to improve your child’s lymphatic system, you improve circulation and gentle detoxification for a healthier child.

Podcast 61 Help Chronic Pain with Lymphatic System Detoxification

senior man massaging chronic pain areaChronic pain can be caused by many things, from infections, trauma, surgery, medications and dehydration. You can help chronic pain with lymphatic system detoxification. Chronic pain is often due to lymphatic system congestion. The lymphatic system, is a tiny network of vessels and nodes that completes circulation through your body and brain. If the lymphatic system becomes damaged or congested it can no longer reabsorb fluid and cellular waste from the body and brain. When this occurs fluid and cellular waste can build in the skin, muscles, bones, organs, blood vessels, nerves and brain creating excess pressure or inflammation from cellular waste. You can have more control over chronic pain by going through a lymphatic system detoxification. Learn more about maintaining your lymphatic system.
