We are entering the colder months and more people suffer with inflammation and pain due to recurring sinus infections. You can help sinus infections with lymphatic system detoxification. Sinus infections are in part due to limited circulation and the buildup of cellular waste, that creates inflammation and a breeding ground for bacteria in the sinuses and nasal area. Many clients with chronic sinusitis benefit from learning how to improve their lymph flow by balancing their pH and manually draining their lymphatic system.
When trying to heal a sinus infection, limit processed foods, coffee, tea, soda, alcohol, rice, flour and red meat. Eat a more alkaline diet of fruits and vegetables, take a supplement like magnesium to help balance your pH, to improve circulation. Whether you see a therapist for lymphatic sessions or learn how to self-drain your lymphatic system, manually improving the lymphatic system is powerful in its ability to improve lymph flow, circulation and natural detoxification to reduce inflammation.
Alzheimer’s has been thought of as a disease originating in the brain. Recent research has shown that beta-amyloid of Alzheimer’s may be a whole body problem. Beta-amyloid is made in blood vessels and muscles and can pass through a weakened blood-brain barrier as we age. In this study researchers used conjoined mice to show how beta-amyloid in the body can accumulate in the brain and manifest signs of Alzheimer’s. Healthy mice were conjoined to mice modified to carry a mutant human gene that produces high levels of a protein called beta-amyloid. In people with Alzheimer’s disease, beta-amyloid forms clumps, or plaques, that limit circulation to the brain cells.
Normal mice that had been joined to genetically modified partners for a year, began showing signs of Alzheimer’s disease. The lead researcher said the beta-amyloid traveled from the genetically-modified mice, to the brains of their normal partners, where it accumulated and began to inflict damage. Not only did the normal mice develop plaques, but also a pathology similar to tangles — twisted protein strands that form inside brain cells, disrupting their function and eventually killing them. Knowing this information, how beta-amyloid from the body can build in the brain, it is important to improve the lymphatic system to help circulation and natural detoxification of cellular waste like beta-amyloid.
If you are in your 40’s and 50’s, you should be concerned and take steps to lower your risk of Alzheimer’s disease. You can help lower your risk of Alzheimer’s with lymphatic system detoxification. Alzheimer’s disease has been identified as a protein mis-folding disease, caused by plaque accumulation of abnormally folded amyloid beta protein, and tau protein in the brain. The mis-folded proteins look like staples, as they build in the brain they limit function. It was always thought that these mis-folded proteins were from the brain.
New research has linked Alzheimer’s to cellular waste, in the whole body, making its way into the brain. In 2015 lymphatic vessels were found in the brain. This is a direct connection between the lymphatic system and the brain. In a recent study researchers found that the outflow of cerebrospinal fluid is predominately through lymphatic vessels. The lymphatic system helps to reabsorb and remove from the tissues, cellular waste, immune cells, fats and other debris. To help lower your risk of Alzheimer’s, you should balance your pH, with a more alkaline diet and improve your lymphatic system to improve circulation and natural detoxification.
The first “small trampoline” was created by Ed Russell in 1938, it was Victor Green, who patented the “small trampoline” in 1975. Since that time millions have learned how rebounding can improve your lymphatic system and health. The rebounder is a great way to get low-impact exercise. A rebounder can be especially useful to improve circulation and detoxification when you are healing after a trauma or surgery. Research has shown that gently bouncing on a rebounder can help to improve lymph flow in the body and brain. It is best to start rebounding off slow and don’t over do it. You want to be well hydrated when rebounding to help avoid a detox reaction of a headache or digestive problems. Rebounding has been shown to help weight loss. Learn more ways to improve your lymphatic system.
Recurring infections helped with lymphatic system detoxification. Recurring infections can be due to a compromised lymphatic system and limited circulation. When circulation is impeded, cellular waste, toxins and other debris build in the tissues of the body creating inflammation and infection. When you balance the pH of the body and improve lymph flow you help improve the circulation of immune cells, like lymphocytes, that scavenge bacteria, viruses and cancer.
When taking antibiotics, it is important to help the body clear excess cellular waste from the body and brain. Most people know to take a probiotic when taking an antibiotic, there is more you can do to improve detoxification. Systemic enzymes help to breakdown cellular waste and help many chemical reactions in the body. The most important step is improving your lymphatic system’s ability to flow and reabsorb cellular waste. Learn how to help build your immune system.
You often hear that you need to build your immune system. How do you do that? You build your immune system by improving lymph flow. Your lymphatic system is a large part of your immune system. Your immune cells depend on a flowing lymphatic system to move around the body to scavenge bacteria, viruses, cancer cells and other pathogens. When your lymphatic system is sluggish, your immune response is weak. We are told to take supplements like Vitamin C, systemic enzymes and probiotics to build you immune system and immune response, but all these are acid forming in the body. Being overly acidic can weaken your body and constrict your lymphatic system, allowing cellular waste to build in the body or brain. Balancing these supplements that help to build your immune response, is necessary to avoid creating an imbalance in the body.
Breast cancer has just been linked to a microbial imbalance in the breast. You can help breast cancer with lymphatic system detoxification to help balance the microbial environment. It has been known for over a hundred years, that you have good and bad bacteria in your body. When the bad bacteria overwhelms the good, your cellular environment becomes damaging to your cells. The lymphatic system, the body’s sewage treatment plant, is a system of vessels and nodes that help to maintain your cellular environment.
Everything in your body is made up of cells, even your blood. When the lymphatic system becomes compromised cellular waste, toxins and other debris can build in and around your cells, limiting their ability to heal. Understanding emerging science of the lymphatic system, pH and bacteria there are certain steps you can take to improve your breast health. High dose probiotics, this can range from 40 billion to a few hundred billion CFU’s. Probiotics taken daily can help to reduce the overgrowth of bad bacteria by helping to break down waste in the body. Learn more about the lymphatic system.
Research has found that many diseases are linked to cellular waste building in the body. The lymphatic system, is a tiny network of vessels and nodes, the body’s sewage treatment plant. When the body is overly acidic the lymphatic system is compromised allowing cellular waste to build in the body or brain creating inflammation and disease. Type-2 diabetes, insomnia, ALS, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s disease, autism, Alzheimer’s have been linked to cellular waste building in the body or brain. It is important to make your body a cleaning machine to help alleviate the buildup of cellular waste. By eating a more alkaline diet, taking supplements like magnesium and manual lymph drainage, you can help reduce the buildup of cellular waste that is limiting your health.
Fibromyalgia (FM) is a medical condition characterized by chronic widespread pain and a heightened pain response to pressure. You can help fibromyalgia with lymphatic system detoxification to help improve circulation and natural detoxification to reduce inflammation. When the body becomes overly acidic the lymphatic system becomes compromised allowing cellular waste and parts of cells to build in the tissues and nerves. Fibromyalgia is a disease of lack of circulation in the tissues and nerves leading to inflammation. Many with fibromyalgia experience fibrofog, difficulty thinking. You can help fibromyalgia by balancing the pH of the body with a more alkaline diet, supplements and going through a gentle lymphatic system detoxification to improve circulation and reduce inflammation.
The pain and swelling of prostatitis can limit your life. You can help prostatitis or inflammation of the prostate with lymphatic system detox. Inflammation begins to manifest in the body when circulation becomes impeded in an area. The lymphatic system, a tiny network of vessel and nodes completes circulation in the body. Manually draining the lymphatic system can be used to improve lymph flow, circulation and natural detoxification of acidic waste that can build in the prostate and surrounding tissue. Many men will take antibiotics to address their prostate swelling. Antibiotics stops the inflammation and infection but can lead to more cellular waste building in the area, limiting circulation further. Besides receiving LymphPractic sessions to open lymph flow to the prostate, a more alkaline diet of fruits and vegetables, daily exercise and systemic enzymes can help keep the prostate from swelling.Learn more about maintaining your lymphatic system.
Arthritis is an autoimmune disease, where the body’s immune system attacks healthy cells, creating painful, swollen joints and surrounding tissues. You can help osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis with lymphatic system detoxification. When the lymphatic system is not functioning optimally cellular waste and cytokines can build in the tissues of the joint, limiting circulation. This stagnation creates toxicity and inflammation that irritates and eventually damages the joint and surrounding tissues. To help arthritis you need to balance the pH of the body and improve lymph flow to improve circulation and the natural detoxification of damaging cellular waste.
Having an enlarged or swollen tongue can be life threatening. Most people don’t realize that you can help an enlarged or swollen tongue with lymphatic system detoxification. There are many causes for an enlarged or swollen tongue, from trauma, surgery, radiation, buildup of amyloids and allergic reactions. When the tongue has become enlarged or swollen the main reason is circulation has become compromised. A severe swelling of the tongue, often seen in children, is called macroglossia. When you manually help improve lymph flow in the neck, under the ears and under the tongue you improve circulation and natural detoxification of cellular waste and inflammation from the tissues of the tongue and mouth. Besides improving lymph flow it is important to balance the pH of the body with a more alkaline diet, magnesium supplementation and systemic enzymes.
Most people don’t realize that most health problems are due to one imbalance in the body. You can help health problems due to one imbalance, like acid reflux or GERD, by balancing the pH of the body. Every year we spend $50 billion worldwide on antacids and Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPI’s). We know there is a big problem with acid. Unfortunately, we treat acid as a digestive problem instead of acid damaging the cells that make up everything in your body. You can help balance your pH with a more alkaline diet of fruits and vegetables, alkaline supplements like magnesium, potassium, daily exercise and lymphatic drainage sessions.
The goal is to balance the pH of the body and improve lymph flow to improve natural detoxification of acidic waste. It is important that everyone understand acid-alkaline balance, how the body is always trying to reach a balanced pH. What we eat, drink, breathe can make you either acid or alkaline.
Often children start their journey of life with surgery, sometimes multiple surgeries. You can help children heal after surgery with LymphPractic. LymphPractic improves lymph flow and circulation to help reduce the buildup of inflammation from cellular waste and fibrin from surgery and the healing process. Reducing cellular waste and improving circulation improves natural detoxification and healing. There are many ways to improve lymph flow, balancing the pH of the body is most important. Feeding your child more fruits and vegetables, supplementing with magnesium and systemic enzymes can improve the ability to heal.
Over the past 23 years I have seen many clients with eye problems, like swelling, pain or lesions. You can help eye pain and lesions by improving lymph flow, to improve circulation and natural detoxification of cellular waste. When lymph flow and circulation is impeded in the eye it can create excess pressure in the eye and, or allow waste to build in the eye creating lesions or a nevus. A nevus is a benign eye lesion which can also be found anywhere else in the body. A lesion is an abnormal change in structure of a tissue, organ or part due to injury or disease; especially if circumscribed. You can help eye pain and lesions by improving lymph flow and body pH with a more alkaline diet of fruits and vegetables, alkalizing supplements, systemic enzymes and lymphatic drainage sessions. The goal is to help improve lymph flow and circulation through the eye and surrounding tissues.
A recent study Finds Breast Cancer Linked to Bacterial Imbalance. The lymphatic system plays a large role in removing or detoxing cellular waste and other debris from the body. When the lymphatic system is not working efficiently cellular waste builds in the body creating a breeding ground for bacteria and infections. To help breast cancer it is important to open lymph flow in the shoulder, Mascagni nodes above pectoralis muscle and axilla nodes. By improving lymph flow you improve circulation and the natural detoxification of cellular waste which can breed bacteria.
Most people with rosacea have only mild redness and are never formally diagnosed or treated. You can help rosacea by improving lymph flow and circulation through the skin of the face. Often the nose, cheeks, forehead, and chin are most involved in rosacea. The red, inflamed skin of Rosacea is from lack of circulation in the skin of the face. This limited circulation allows cellular waste to build in the skin creating toxicity and inflammation. Reducing the consumption of processed foods, alcohol, coffee and flour products. Balance the pH of the body by eating a healthier diet of fruits and vegetables, better hydration, magnesium supplementation, daily light exercise and gently, manually draining the skin of the face, can help improve circulation and natural detoxification to help control rosacea.
If you look around you can see there is a large problem of acne affecting teens and adults. You can help clear acne with lymphatic system detoxification to reduce inflammation. Acne is said to be when hair follicles are clogged with dead skin cells and oil from the skin. John Ossipinsky has a different view of acne, one based on the emerging science of the lymphatic system and pH of the body. The skin of the face is covered with lymphatic vessels that must reabsorb cellular waste (parts of cells) from the skin and return it to a vein in the base of the neck.
When the body or skin becomes overly acidic the lymphatic vessels constrict and cannot efficiently clean up the cellular waste. This buildup of cellular waste in the skin creates inflammation and toxicity. You can help acne by eating less processed food and sugar. Eat more of an alkaline diet of fruits and vegetables, better hydration, deep breathing, daily exercise and supplements like magnesium, curcumin and systemic enzymes. The most important step is improving lymph flow in the area of the acne with lymphatic drainage sessions.
Idiopathic intracranial hypertension helped by improving lymph flow. Idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH), also known as benign intracranial hypertension (BIH) or pseudotumor cerebri (PTC), is a neurological disorder that is characterized by increased intracranial pressure, without the presence of a tumor or other diseases. The main symptoms are stroke-like headache, nausea, and vomiting, as well as pulsatile tinnitus, double vision, eye pressure and other visual symptoms.
Idiopathic means they don’t know why you have the pressure. The lymphatic system is a pressure relief system that helps to reabsorb cellular waste and fluid from the body and brain. In 2015 researchers found lymphatic vessels in the brain. This is a direct lymph-brain connection that can be used to reduce pressure in the body or brain. Improving lymph flow by balancing the internal pH with an alkaline diet, magnesium, systemic enzymes, daily exercise and lymphatic drainage sessions can help reduce the pressure in your head.
Have you ever noticed how a friend’s or loved one’s hair is thinning or becoming flyaway hair. You can help thinning and flyaway hair with lymphatic system detoxification. When the head and cranium become overly acidic, it can slow or stop the lymphatic system from reabsorbing cellular waste from the tissues of the scalp. As this acidic waste builds in the tissues beneath your hair bulbs, the hair can become thin or fly away. This thinning of the hair is occurring in children, men and women. It is a sign of an acidic pH and toxicity in the tissues of the scalp. You can take simple steps, like eating less processed foods and eating a more alkaline diet of fruits and vegetables can help balance pH and improve lymph flow to improve natural detoxification in the scalp.
