John Ossipinsky's Lymphatic System Health BlogLearn Life Changing Science of the Lymphatic System and Health
John Ossipinsky has been working with the lymphatic system for over 25 years, helping client’s with their pain and debility. He is an author, health coach and the developer of LymphPractic, a gentle whole body lymphatic system tuneup that benefits most health problems. John is on a mission to help everyone understand the importance of detoxing and maintaining their lymphatic system. Understanding the body’s sewage treatment system can help you overcome an illness, lower your risk of disease or have a vibrant, happy life with your memories intact. The lymphatic system helps maintain every system in the body, by improving this one system, you help all system’s of the body, even the brain.
It is imporatnt to learn to control Lymphedema so it doesn’t worsen or become inflammed as with cellulitis. You can help control Lymphedema with lymphatic system detoxification. When the lymphatic system becomes compromised due to surgery or trauma acidic cellular waste and fluid can build in the tissues and cells limiting detoxification. Research has shown that when cells become acidic they can no longer clean themsleves and become inflammed and toxic. You can learn to control lymphedema by improving lymphatic system detoxification using dietary balancing, basic supplements and activating the lymphatic system with self-lymphatic drainage.
Lipedema, swelling in the legs and arms, is a growing global problem affecting mainly women. You can help Lipedema with lymphatic system detoxification. Lipedema is thought to be in part from hormonal imbalances. New science has shown that when a brain cell becomes acidic it can no longer clean itself, it becomes toxic. This same phenomenon is happening in Lipedema. The cells in the legs and arms are becoming overly acidic which is limiting the cell’s ability to detox cellular waste. Even the lymphatic system when overly acidic can constrict and limit detoxification. Most people think Lipedema is a leg problem. Often the congestion affecting the legs lies in the chest, abdomen or inguinal nodes. Gain more control over your lipedema with lymphatic system detoxification.
In 2015 lymphatic vessels were found in the brain. In 2017 the major outflow of cerebrospinal fluid was found to be into lymphatic vessels. You can help MS by improving the lymphatic system. Research from the University of Virginia School of Medicine suggests lymphatic vessels that clean the brain of harmful material play a crucial role in the development and progression of multiple sclerosis (MS). When the lymphatic system cannot clean the brain acidic cellular waste builds in the brain and nerves. You can have more control over your MS symptoms by maintaining your lymphatic system.
The most common form of torticollis is congenital muscular torticollis that is present at birth or develops in the first 4 weeks. Even adults can have torticollis from an infection or repetitive stress, like tennis. You can help torticollis by improving the lymphatic system to improve circulation in the affected area. Acquired torticollis or noncongenital muscular torticollis may result from scarring or disease of cervical vertebrae, adenitis, tonsillitis, rheumatism, enlarged cervical glands, retropharyngeal abscess, or cerebellar tumors. The underlying anatomical problem causing torticollis is a shortened sternocleidomastoid muscle. The sternocleidomastoid muscle originates from two locations at the base of the neck: the manubrium of the sternum and the clavicle. There are major lymph vessels under the sternum that when not working efficiently can allow acidic cellular waste to build in the sternocleidomastoid muscle. Manually activating the lymphatic system can help improve circulation and the detoxification of acidic cellular waste to help the torticollis heal. Learning to use dietary balancing, basic supplements and manually activating the lymphatic system can help torticollis.
You often hear how inflammation is the root cause of disease. You can reduce inflammation with lymphatic system detoxification. But what is inflammation? When the lymphatic system, a tiny network of vessels and nodes, is not working efficiently to help clear cellular waste (parts of cells) and fluid it builds in the body and brain creating inflammation. When you help reduce the buildup of cellular waste and inflammation with lymphatic system detoxification you feel better mentally and physically. LymphPractic, work I use in my office in Scottsdale, AZ is a gentle but powerful lymphatic system detoxification that gets to the root cause of most health problems.
Posttraumatic Stress Disorder is a serious problem that is affecting many people, especially veterans with varied symptoms. You can help PTSD by balancing the pH of the body to improve the lymphatic system. Veterans become acidic and toxic from their repeated deployments, some 3 or 4 times, vaccinations, exploded munitions, heat, dehydration, acidic foods and medications. Researchers have found that an acidic brain cell can limit detoxification in the brain. To help PTSD it is important to balance pH to improve the lymph-brain connection. The lymphatic system plays a large role in maintaining the brain.
If you are trying to help anxiety, depression or panic attacks you must improve the lymphatic system to help the brain. In this podcast, you will learn 5 steps to help anxiety by improving the lymphatic system. The symptoms of anxiety are many; fear, tightness in the chest, hard to breathe, palpitations, tingling or numbness in the extremities, digestive difficulty, interrupted sleep, and you could feel like your dying. If you have severe anxiety you should be talking to a therapist to help you, sometimes talking to the right person can make all the difference in how you perceive your anxiety. The lymphatic system plays a large role in maintaining the brain, what I call a lymph-brain connection. When you learn 5 steps to help anxiety by improving the lymphatic system you gain more control over your anxiety symptoms.
Some on the autism spectrum have a problem with gaining weight. You can help weight gain in autism by balancing pH in the body. pH stands for the potential of hydrogen in a solution. pH tests can show whether your urine, saliva, or blood is acidic, in balance or alkaline. When overly acidic the lymphatic system’s ability to perform detoxification of cellular waste from the body and brain is compromised. Two-studies in 2005 found that fat and obesity were linked to damaged lymph vessels. Researchers damaged a gene that made healthy lymph vessels in the legs of mice which created damaged, leaky lymph vessels. The legs with the leaky lymph vessels became fat. If you want to lose weight or help a person on the spectrum lose weight you must help improve the lymphatic system to improve gentle detoxification.

Anxiety is a large problem in the general population and in the autism community. You can help anxiety in autism by improving the lymphatic system to help detox cellular waste from the body and brain. A recent study found that obese mice had anxiety. When researchers removed cellular waste called senescent cells from the brain of the mice their anxiety left. In the past few years, many neurological diseases have been linked to cellular waste, anxiety, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, ALS and schizophrenia. Hopefully, you see that anxiety in autism spectrum disorders and autism the disease may in the near future be linked to the buildup of cellular waste. Learn how to use the newly found Lymph-Brain Connection to help anxiety in autism.
There is controversy whether the eye has lymphatic vessels. You can help eye pain with lymphatic system detoxification to help reduce cellular waste which can limit circulation in the eye. It is known that the muscles and tissues around the eye, especially the Schlemm’s canal, a circular lymphatic-like vessel in the eye helps to reabsorb aqueous humor from the anterior chamber of the eye. When the eye suffers trauma or becomes overly acidic the lymphatic system in the area becomes compromised. The result is the buildup of cellular waste which builds in the blood vessels around the eye, like log jams in a river, limiting circulation and detoxification. By going through gentle lymphatic system detoxification, using dietary balancing, basic supplements and manual lymphatic drainage you can help improve lymph flow and circulation through the eye and surrounding tissues to reduce pressure and pain.
The pain and stiffness of carpal tunnel syndrome can be debilitating. You can help carpal tunnel syndrome by improving lymph flow to help detox cellular waste from the tissues of the wrist. The wrist is one of the only joints that have no lymph nodes. This may be a partial reason why acidic cellular waste can build in the wrist irritating the transverse carpal ligament and median nerve. Manually activating the lymphatic system in the axilla and neck helps to detox cellular waste from the tissues of the wrist.
When you have anxiety you can also have many other symptoms like depression, panic attacks, nausea, fatigue, tight chest, difficulty breathing, palpitations, digestive issues, and restless leg syndrome. You can help anxiety by improving the lymphatic system to help reduce the buildup of cellular waste and inflammation. The lymphatic system is a secondary system like the circulatory system that helps to maintain every system in the body, even the brain. In 2015 lymphatic vessels were found in the brain, in 2017 the major outflow of cerebrospinal fluid was found to be into lymphatic vessels. When the lymphatic system cannot efficiently help to clear cerebrospinal fluid and cellular waste from the brain, the brain becomes acidic and toxic. This toxicity affects how you feel and think. The lymphatic system is a simple system that you gain more control of using dietary balancing, basic supplements, and activating the lymphatic system with lymphatic drainage or self-lymphatic drainage. Improving lymph flow can help many of your health issues. Never stop any medication! Put steps into action to improve your health for a few weeks and work with your physician.
There are many skin diseases like eczema and psoriasis that are due to an acidic pH and congested lymphatic system. When acidic cellular waste builds in the skin, the skin becomes inflamed and raw. You can help many skin diseases by improving the lymphatic system to detox the buildup of cellular waste. The superficial lymphatic is right under the skin and mostly dependent on deep breathing. Lymphatic system detoxification can help reduce acidic cellular waste and inflammation in the skin. When you look at eczema, you can see the inflammation in the red irritated skin. Same for psoriasis, the flaky white patches you see is the buildup of cellular waste on the skin. Learning to detox and maintain your lymphatic system can help to reduce the buildup of cellular waste and inflammation from the skin.
If you are having a hard time losing weight you need to understand how the lymphatic system can help you lose weight. You can lose stubborn weight by improving the lymphatic system to improve circulation and detoxification. The lymphatic system is a tiny network of vessels and nodes that help to absorb cellular waste, fats and other debris which forms fat in the body. In 2015 damaged lymphatic vessels were linked to fat and obesity in mice. If you want to lose weight and keep it off you must maintain your lymphatic system.
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.
On-going chronic pain can be debilitating and life-altering Whether the pain is from surgery, trauma or an acidic pH, you can help reduce chronic pain by balancing pH. After surgery or trauma, the injured area can become overly acidic from the healing process. This can constrict the tissues and limit circulation. This limited circulation also limits the detoxification of acidic cellular waste which can create inflammation and an increase in pain. An acidic pH is a measure of the potential of hydrogen in a solution. When a solution is more acidic there is more hydrogen and less oxygen. The pH scale is from 0-14, 7 is in balance or equilibrium. You can test your saliva and urine pH with pH test strips. By balancing pH you improve the lymphatic system’s ability to detox cellular waste and you create a less damaging environment so your chronic pain can heal.
Is your child having cognitive, digestive or skin problems? You can help children pre-autism diagnosis with lymphatic system detoxification. The cognitive, digestive and skin problems associated with autism can be helped by improving the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is a tiny network of vessels and nodes that helps to clean cellular waste and other debris from the body and brain. When cellular waste builds in the brain, digestive system or skin it creates inflammation which can limit function and health.
In lymphoma, cancer cells are found in the lymphatic system, which is comprised of the bone marrow, lymph nodes, spleen, stomach, intestines, and skin. Since lymph tissues are present in many parts of the body, lymphoma can start almost anywhere. You can help lymphoma with lymphatic system detoxification. Cancers like Lymphoma begin in the cell and the lymphatic system maintains cellular health. When the cells of the lymph system become toxic you manifest diseases like lymphoma. When you maintain the lymphatic system you help maintain the cellular environment. Taking steps to improve lymphatic system detoxification can help you better manage lymphoma and to help prevent a reoccurrence of the disease.
