Podcast 106 Help Erectile Dysfunction with Lymphatic System Detoxification

lymphatic system drawing v2 by adbravo - CroppedMany men don’t realize that erectile dysfunction is a problem of limited circulation in the pelvis. You can help erectile dysfunction with lymphatic system detoxification. Erectile dysfunction or ED begins when the lymph and blood vessels in the pelvis become congested with cellular waste. Cellular waste has been linked to many health issues from heart failure, breast cancer, and most neurological diseases.  The lymphatic system maintains the cellular environment by reabsorbing cellular debris, immune cells, and other waste and returns it to the blood. You can have more control over ED and the buildup of cellular waste in the body by learning to detox and maintain your lymphatic system.


Podcast 105 Help Neurodegenerative Diseases by Detoxing Cellular Waste

Brain Cell NeuronsThere are many neurodegenerative diseases linked to the buildup of cellular waste, which primarily affects the neurons in the brain. You can help neurodegenerative diseases by detoxing cellular waste. Neurons are the building blocks of the nervous system which includes the brain and spinal cord. Neurons normally don’t reproduce or replace themselves, when they become damaged or die they cannot be replaced by the body. Neurodegenerative diseases occur when neurons in the brain and spinal cord begin to deteriorate.  Degenerative nerve diseases affect many of your body’s activities, such as balance, movement, talking, breathing, and heart function. As cellular waste builds around the neurons the cell becomes damaged or dies. By activating the lymphatic system, you can help neurodegenerative diseases by detoxing cellular waste.


Podcast 104 Good Posture is Important to Improve the Lymphatic System and Healing

Good Posture Helps Lymphatic System'Having good posture plays an important role in how well your lymphatic system works and how you heal. Good posture is important to improve the lymphatic system and healing. How often do you catch yourself slouching while sitting or standing? When you slouch you can limit lymph flow, circulation, and detoxification in the body and brain. When lymph flow is compromised due to bad posture, any part of the body or brain can become filled with cellular waste. This buildup of cellular waste is like logjams in a river blocking the rivers flow. So standing and sitting with a little better posture, can improve the lymphatic system and healing. It’s not about having perfect posture. Standing or sitting a little straighter can make a big difference in how your lymph flows.


Podcast 103 Why Cancer Survivors Should Improve Their Lymphatic System

Green Lymphatic System Lady CroppedWhen many cancer survivors end their cancer treatment they don’t think of improving their lymphatic system. There are many reasons why cancer survivors should improve their lymphatic system. During cancer treatment, whether you use traditional chemotherapy and radiation or more alternative treatments, extreme amounts of cellular waste can be created. The buildup of cellular waste like fibrin from the treatments can limit circulation and healing. The lymphatic system is a tiny network of vessels and nodes that helps to reabsorb cellular waste, fibrin, immune cells and fluid from the body. When you improve the lymphatic system after cancer treatment, you help to improve circulation and the ability of the lymphatic system to reduce acidic cellular waste and inflammation. Cancer survivors should improve their lymphatic system to improve lymph flow and their immune system to lower their risk of recurrence.

Podcast 102 Help Breast Implant Removal with Lymphatic System Detoxification

SurgeryIt is important to help breast implant removal with lymphatic system detoxification. Implant complications: Breast implant complications can necessitate breast implant removal. Complications may include implant rupture, folding or deflation if the breast implant is filled with saline.  Other reasons are capsular contracture, tension bands asymmetry, displacement, infection and leakage of silicone. Some women may feel their breast implants are the wrong shape or size.  Over time the implants may have moved into the wrong position because of weight loss, weight gain or pregnancies. When you had the breast implants implanted, the surgery can compromise the lymphatic system in the axilla (underarm) nodes and nodes beneath the clavicles. Over time the lymphatic system can become more congested and you can start having many health problems due to the lymphatic system becoming congested and limiting circulation. Improving the lymphatic system with lymphatic system detoxification can help improve circulation and detoxification of acidic cellular waste that is making you feel ill and prepare you for surgery.


Podcast 101 Help Abdominal Bloating With Lymphatic System Detoxification

Businessman with bloating and bad stomach painIf you take a look around you can easily see that many people have abdominal bloating, with round distended abdomens. You can help abdominal bloating with lymphatic system detoxification. When you think about abdominal bloating you don’t immediately think of the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is a tiny network of vessels and nodes that helps to reabsorb cellular waste and fluids from the tissues of the body. When the abdominal lymphatic vessels are not working efficiently acidic waste and fluid can build in the intestines and surrounding tissues, distending the abdomen, possibly creating abdominal pain. When you go through lymphatic system detoxification, you help to improve the detoxification of cellular waste and fluids to reduce bloating and pain. You can gain more control over your health by receiving a lymphatic session from a therapist or learn how to maintain your own lymphatic system using diet, supplements and self-lymphatic drainage, using your own two hands.


Podcast 100 Help Cluster Headaches With Lymphatic System Detoxification

Lymphatic System Detoxification AutismYou can help cluster headaches with lymphatic system detoxification. Cluster headaches can last for 15 minutes to 3 hours and often occur in clusters which typically last for weeks or months and occasionally more than a year. There is often accompanying eye-watering, nasal congestion, or swelling around the eye on the affected side. These are all signs that the lymphatic system is not working efficiently. The lymphatic system plays a large role in reabsorbing interstitial fluid from our tissues. When the lymphatic vessels can’t reabsorb fluid you will see symptoms like eye-watering, or swelling around the eye on the affected side. Learning to maintain your lymphatic system with diet, supplements, and self-lymphatic drainage can help you have better control over your cluster headaches.


Podcast 99 Reduce Your Risk of Stroke with Lymphatic System Detoxification

Brain Image Xray Med PIc StrokeThere are many reasons to reduce your risk of stroke with lymphatic system detoxification. The major reason for a stroke is poor blood flow to the brain, resulting in cell death. This is something that you personally have control over. The main risk factor in strokes is high blood pressure. Other risk factors include tobacco smoking, obesity, high blood cholesterol, diabetes mellitus, a previous TIA, and atrial fibrillation. By learning how to maintain your lymphatic system, you can reduce inflammation and lower your risk of a stroke.



Podcast 98 Reduce Heart Failure Risk By Improving The Lymphatic System

Human Heart Circulation Heart DIsease, Heart FailureHeart failure, is a heart muscle that is having diffciulty removing fluid and cellular waste. You can reduce heart failure risk by improving the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system, your body’s sewage treatment system, helps maintain your skin, muscles, organs, bones, blood vessels, nerves and brain. When your lymphatic system becomes compromised in the heart, heart cells called the desmin protein become trapped in the heart. As this waste builds it limits lymph flow and circulation through the heart muscles and fluid can build around the heart. By improving the lymphatic system you can help to gently detox acidic cellular waste from the chest area.  When you learn how to maintain your lymphatic system you gain more control over detoxification and the health of your body to help heart disease.


Podcast 97 Whole Body Pain is Helped With Lymphatic System Detoxification

Green Lymphatic System Lady NewIt is important to know that whole body pain is about a congested lymphatic system which is the body’s sewage treatment system. Whole body pain is helped with lymphatic system detoxification. Your lymphatic system is a tiny network of vessels and nodes that maintains your skin, muscles, bones, organs, nerves and brain. When lymph vessels become congested or overly acidic they can no longer clean the body or brain efficiently. When this occurs in the skin it becomes full of cellular waste and excess protein rich fluid that can create inflammation and pressure under the skin. When a person with whole body pain bumps into something it hurts due to the excess fluid and inflammation under the skin. Receiving a gentle lymphatic system detoxification can help reduce inflammation and your whole body pain.


Lose Weight With Lymphatic System Detoxification

Many people find it hard to lose weight. You can help lose weight with lymphatic system detoxification. Two studies in 2005 linked fat and obesity to damaged lymph vessels. Researchers damaged the gene that makes lymph vessels in the leg of mice. The lymph vessels were formed leaky and ruptured and were unable to reabsorb fluid, fats and other debris. The legs of the mice became heavy and fat. Most of us are not born with damaged lymph vessels, over time they become overly acidic and full of cellular waste which limits their ability to clean us. To lose weight and keep it off you must learn to detox and maintain your lymphatic system to improve lymph flow, circulation and natural detoxification.


Podcast 95 Help Baby Colic by Improving Lymph Flow

crying colic baby When a baby is clenching their fists, crying often while passing gas they may have baby colic. You can help baby colic by improving lymph flow to reduce inflammation. The lymphatic system is a tiny network of vessels and nodes that helps to reabsorb cellular waste. When the lymphatic system is not working optimally, cellular waste can build in the digestive system, creating inflammation, gas and pain that can make a baby uncomfortable. If Mom is breastfeeding it is important to check saliva and urine pH to make sure Mom is not overly acidic which can make the baby acidic and limit lymph flow in the body and brain. Receiving a few gentle lymphatic drainage sessions or learning to drain your baby’s lymphatic system can help alleviate the pain and irritability that comes with having baby with colic. John explains how to manually open the Cisterna Chyli, three lymphatic vessels in the abdomen that maintain the digestive system, to help colic.

Balance pH of Acidic Brain Cells to Help Autism

If you are trying to help a child with autism, it’s important to balance pH and improve the lymphatic system. You must balance pH of acidic brain cells to help autism. In recent research an acidic brain cell, called the Astrocyte was found to be a missed root cause of Alzheimer’s. Researchers found when the brain cell became acidic it could no longer clean itself. This creates inflammation and begins the disease process. By balancing pH and improving the lymphatic system you can help children with autism. In 2015 lymphatic vessels were found in the brain. That is a direct lymph-brain connection that can be used to help the brain and autism.


Podcast 94 Lymphatic System Detoxification Helps Difficulty Breathing

Human Lungs in ThoraxWhen you are having diffculty breathing, your first thought isn’t lymphatic system detoxification. For many people lymphatic system detoxification helps difficulty breathing. There can be many reasons for a tight chest and diffculty breathing, from an injury to your ribs, medications or acidic foods and beverages that can constrict your lungs and chest. Recent research found that an acidic brain cell may contribute to Alzheimer’s disease. They found when the brain cell called an astrocyte is acidic it can no longer clean itself. This same thing is happening in your lungs which are made up of cells. When the lungs become overly acidic the cells of the lungs can no longer clean and your lungs become acidic, inflamed and toxic. By learning to detox and maintain the lymphatic system you can gain more control over your breathing. John explains how to do the LymphMan Shoulder Shuffle to relax your shoulders and help you take a deep breath.


Help PTSD With Lymphatic System Detoxification

PTSD with lymphatic system detoxificxation. Even though many veterans are being diagnosed with PTSD many in the general population have experienced a devastating event and have PTSD. Ongoing stress and extremely stressful events can create an acidic pH in the body which can limit lymph flow. In 2015 lymphatic vessels were found in the brain and in 2017 lymphatic vessels were found to be the major outflow of cerebrospianl fluid from the brain. Meaning the lymphatic system plays a large role in maintaining the brain. If you want to help how you think and feel you must include maintaining the lymphatic system.


Podcast 93 Help Alzheimer’s Disease by Balancing pH

Senior Couple One May Have Alzheimer'sThe first of the Baby Boomers are hitting 74 and may have some concerns about or exhibiting signs of dementia or Alzheimer’s. You can help Alzheimer’s disease by balancing pH. When you first receive a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease, especially in the early stages, you should consider putting steps into action that will help balance the pH of your body and brain cells. A few months ago researchers found that when an acidic brain cell called an Astrocyte is overly acidic, the cell can longer clean itself. At the first signs of Alzheimer’s or dementia you need to look at your diet and lifestyle, and make changes that will help balance pH to improve lymph flow in the brain. Eating a more alkaline diet, basic supplements and lymph drainage can help improve circulation and detoxification in the brain.


Podcast 92 Help Autism in Children by Improving the Lymph-Brain Connection

Brain CellsSome parents of children with autism say they watched as their child’s ability to think declined. You can help autism in children by improving the lymph-brain connection to help balance the pH in the brain cells. Research has found that in Alzheimer’s, when the brain cells called astrocytes have an acidic pH, they are unable to clean themselves.  I believe a similar phenomenom, where the child’s brain cells have become overly acidic, limiting their ability to clean themselves. This is how any part of the body or brain can become full of inflammation and toxicity. When you learn how to detox and maintain the lymphatic system you gain more control over how you or a child thinks and feels.


Podcast 91 Healthy Diet Helps Lipedema

Lipedema is a lymphatic disorder of painful subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT), likely affecting millions of women worldwide. Eating a healthy diet can help lipedema, especially with controlling edema. Eating more fresh fruits and vegetables and cutting out the wheat products, even whole wheat, and meat protein can make a big difference in how you control your edema. You will see the biggest difference in the early stages of lipedema with diet, supplements and lymphatic drainage or self-lymphatic drainage. If you have the later stages of lipedema the goal is to use diet, supplements and lymphatic drainage or self-lymphatic drainage to keep the edema from becoming lipo-lymphedema. It is not about being perfect in diet and lifestyle but learning to clean up on a regular schedule to reduce inflammation.

Podcast 90 Help Heart Disease with Lymphatic System Detoxification

Human Heart CirculationHeart disease is a general term that means that the heart is not working normally. You can help heart disease with lymphatic system detoxification. Babies can be born with what is called congenital heart disease. If people get heart disease later in life, it is called acquired heart disease. Most heart disease is acquired. The heart is a muscle that pumps non-stop. When the heart becomes acidic it can fill with its own cellular waste limiting the ability of the heart to pump blood out efficiently to the body and brain. The lympahtic system plays a large role in mainating the heart and keeping it from filling with cellular waste and fluid. Heart failure has been linked to proteins building in the heart muscle. To help your heart your need to understand how to use diet, supplements and lymphatic drainage to improve circulationa nd detoxificationin the heart.



Podcast 89 Help Chronic Pain After Surgery with Lymphatic System Detox

senior man hand holding he neck and massaging in chronic pain area.Often after surgery many individuals have chronic pain for years. Having chronic pain after surgery is a very large problem. You can help chronic pain after surgery with lymphatic system detox. In surgery blood and lymph vessels are cut and can take up to 14 days to heal. This can limit the lymphatic system’s ability to pick up cellular waste which can lead to inflammation and more pain. You can help chronic pain by improving lymph flow through the area of pain. This improves circulation and the detoxification of cellular waste and inflammation that may be limiting healing. There are many ways to improve lymph flow from an alkaline diet, supplements, exercise, seeing a lymphatic therapist and self-lymphatic drainage.
