Podcast 88 Help IBS and Digestive Issues in Autism by Balancing pH

Autistic Child Painful Belly IBSParents can help lBS and digestive issues in autism by balancing pH. IBS and many of the digestive issues associated with autism have a missed contributing factor of an acidic pH and acidic abdominal tissues. When the lymphatic vessels in the upper abdomen, become compromised they can no longer clear acidic cellular waste from the abdominal tissues, the abdominal tissues become acidic, tight and inflamed. To help your child’s digestive issues you need to balance their pH with a couple of supplements like magnesium and potassium. When you balance pH and manually activate the lymphatic system you improve lymph flow, circulation and detoxification of acidic cellular waste from the tissues of the body. This reduces inflammation and heals the digestive tissues.


High Fat Diet Found to Limit Ability to Feel Full

According to new research a high fat diet found to limit ability to feel full. I have experienced this myself. When I was eating a high fat diet, I ate large meals. Once I started eating more fruits and vegetables, I became fuller faster and I ate much less. There is an easy way for you to feel the difference between eating a high fat diet or more fruits and vegetables. Try eating just fruits and vegetables for 3 days. No bread, spaghetti, tortillas, white or brown rice and meat. You will see you will eat less and feel lighter on the first day of eating fruits and vegetables.


Podcast 87 Help Multiple Sclerosis Improving Lymph Flow

Multiple Sclerosis TabletMutiple sclerosis is a disease that damages the myelin sheath that protects the nerve cells in the brain. You can help multiple sclerosis improving lymph flow. New research from the University of Virginia School of Medicine suggests that lymphatic vessels that clean the brain of harmful material play a crucial role in the development and progression of multiple sclerosis. In 2015 lymphatic vessels were found in the brain. In 2017 the major outflow of cerebrospinal fluid was found to be through lymphatic vessels. That means the lymphatic system plays a major role in maintaining the brain. By improving lymph flow you can help the detoxification of cellular waste that may be contributing to the symptoms of multiple sclerosis.


Podcast 86 Help Prostatitis by Balancing pH and Improving Lymph Flow

Two Prostate Images Med PicWhen you have prostate inflammation, also called prostatitis, the tissues around the prostate become compromised from the buildup of cellular waste. This buildup of cellular waste leads to limited circulation and inflamed tissues. around the prostate gland. As the lymphatic vessels can no longer reabsorb fluid from the prostate it swells limiting urine flow. The goal with any prostate problem is to balance pH and improve lymph flow to improve circulation and detoxification of cellular waste around and in the prostate gland. A lymphatic system detoxification can dramatically improve circulation in the prostate.

Maintain Lymphatic System to Lose Weight and Keep It Off

There are dozens of diet programs to help people lose weight but we are still struggling to lose weight. You need to maintain lymphatic system to lose weight and keep it off. Two studies in 2005 link fat and obesity to damaged lymph vessels. By improving lymph flow you can help circulation and the detoxification of cellular waste and fats that are making you overweight. The lymphatic system is a tiny network of vessels and nodes, when it can’t clean cellular waste, fats, hormones and other debris it builds in our cells as fat. Have more control over your weight by learning to maintain your lymphatic system. Helps more than weight loss, most health problems benefit from improving the lymphatic system.


Podcast 85 Help Reduce The Aggregation of Proteins with Lymphatic Detox

Alzheimer's disease. Aggregation of proteins, Amyloid BuildupYour health is being devastated by the aggregation of proteins, called amyloids that can limit circulation. You can help reduce the aggregation of proteins with lymphatic detox. Researchers are linking the aggregation of proteins, called amyloids, to many health problems from ALS, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s to Huntington’s disease. Even heart failure has been linked to the aggregation of proteins. The lymphatic system maintains your cellular environment, when the lymphatic system cannot function to reabsorb proteins (parts of cells) they can build in any part of the body or brain, limiting circulation and function. If proteins build in the body or brain they mis-fold and aggregate, creating limited circulation which leads to inflammation. When you help improve your lymphatic system, you help reduce the aggregation of proteins to improve circulation. You can help improve the lymphatic system and detoxification of damaging proteins by eating a more alkaline diet, taking enzymes, a little exercise and self-lymphatic drainage.


Podcast 84 Help Acid Reflux and GERD with Lymphatic System Detox

Acid Reflux - GERD DiagramMost of us have grown up watching commercials on acid indigestion and are familiar with acid reflux or more severe GERD, gastroesophageal reflux disease. You can help acid reflux and GERD with lymphatic system detoxification. If I were to say, “How do you spell relief?” Many of you would recite R-O-L-A-I-D-S! Globally we spend billions of dollars on antacids and proton pump inhibitors like Prilosec. We see acid as a digestive issue instead of acid damaging the cells of the body and brain. If acid reflux is not treated it worsens and can become  gastro-esophageal reflux disease. This means the tissues are becoming more inflamed and damaged. To help acid reflux and GERD, it is important to balance pH with a more alkaline diet, basic supplements and manually improving the lymphatic system to improve circulation and detoxification of acidic waste.


Help Drug Addiction by Improving the Lymph-Brain Connection

You can help drug addiction by improving the lymph-brain connection to improve lymph flow, circulation and detoxification in the brain. In addiction the body and brain can become acidic and toxic which can limit the lymphatic system’s ability to clean cellular waste. Improving lymph flow can help calm the mind and ease stress that may make a person want to use again. John Ossipinsky uses LymphPractic to help improve a lymph-brain connection to help how individuals feel mentally and physically. When you have used drugs like opioids or meth your body and brain can become overly acidic and affect how you feel and think. By receiving a few LymphPractic sessions or learning how to use self-lymphatic drainage you can help improve the lymphatic system. This helps circulation and detoxification which can help to relax the body and mind to help keep you from using again.


Podcast 83 Help Asthma by Balancing pH

An image of an asthma-inflamed bronchial tube on a white backgroundYou can help asthma by balancing pH to improve lymph flow, circulation and detoxification of acidic cellular waste. Asthma is a condition in which a person’s airways become inflamed, narrow, swell, and produce extra mucus, which makes it hard to breathe. You may hear wheezing in the lungs. When you see swelling in the bronchi or in a part of the body, often it has to do with a congested lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is a tiny network of vessels and nodes that help to reabsorb cellular waste, fluid, fibrin, fats and other debris from the body. By balancing the pH of the body you can help improve lymph flow to reduce inflammation and swelling in the lungs. There are many ways to help balance pH to improve lymph flow. A more alkaline diet is a key factor, also  basic supplements and light exercise can help balance pH. Receiving a LymphPractic session or learning self-lymphatic drainage to help directly improve the lymphatic system can dramatically help those with asthma.


Podcast 82 Lose Weight And Keep It Off By Reducing Inflammation

fat woman measuring her stomach to lose weightThere are millions of people around the world who would like help losing weight, learn the the next big weight loss secret. You can lose weight and keep it off by reducing inflammation in the body. Researchers have found that stubborn weight gain has to do with inflammation in the tissues. Inflammation is the result of a buildup of acidic cellular waste in an area of the body or brain. This buildup of acidic cellular waste can limit circulation in the tissues creating toxicity and inflammation. The lymphatic system maintains the tissues of the body by reabsorbing cellular waste, fluid and fats. When the body’s pH is overly acidic the lymphatic system becomes compromised and the body starts filling with cellular waste, fluid and fats. By improving lymph flow and balancing pH you can help lose weight with improved lymph flow, circulation and detoxification to reduce inflammation.


Help Reduce Stress and Anxiety by Improving Lymph Flow

Stress and anxiety can limit your health and life. You can help reduce stress and anxiety by improving lymph flow. In 2015 researchers found lymphatic vessels in the brain, that is a lymph-brain connection that can be used to help how you feel and think. Learn to improve your lymphatic system to help your stress and anxiety. When the lymphatic system is not working optimally cellular waste and fluid can build in the brain creating toxicity which makes you feel stress or anxious. By improving lymph flow through the brain you can help reduce toxicity to help your stress and anxiety.


Lipedema Can Be Helped By Balancing Cellular pH

Do you think of Lipedema as a plumbing problem? Lipedema can be helped by balancing cellular pH. New research has found that one root cause of Alzheimer’s may be an acidic cell in the brain, that can no longer efficiently clean cellular waste. This same thing is happening in most health problems since every part of your body is made up of cells. If cells in your pancreas can’t clean then your pancreas becomes toxic and inflamed. This same phenomenon is happening with Lipedema. When cells in your legs or arms become overly acidic they can no longer clean cellular waste efficiently. This buildup of cellular waste in the legs or arms limits circulation and leads to edema, swelling. Balancing pH and improving the lymphatic system can help you manage your Lipedema.


Age Gracefully with Lymphatic System Detoxification

An acidic pH and toxicity ages the body. You can age gracefully with Lymphatic System Detoxification. The lymphatic system is a tiny network of vessels and nodes that help to maintain every system in the body. You can have more control over your health by learning to maintain your lymphatic system, the body’s sewage treatment system. When the lymphatic system cannot recover cellular waste efficiently it builds in your body and brain. This buildup of waste limits circulation and the body’s ability to detox. You can learn to use diet, basic supplements and the Ossipinsky Method of Lymphatic of Self-Lymphatic Drainage to maintain your lymphatic system to help reduce the buildup of cellular waste.


Podcast 81 Help Chronic Fatigue By Balancing pH

Doctor shows information: chronic fatigue syndromeYou can help chronic fatigue syndrome by balancing pH of the body. Chronic fatigue syndrome can manifest as extreme fatigue, substantially impair memory/concentration, sore throat, tender neck or armpit lymph nodes, muscle pain, headaches of a new types, pattern, or severity, disturbed sleep,  relapse of symptoms after exercise that lasts more than 24 hours, pain in multiple joints without swelling or redness. These are all signs of an acidic pH and congested lymphatic system that allows the body to fill with cellular waste. This acidic cellular waste limits the ability of red blood cells to carry oxygen needed to make ATP – adenosine triphosphate.  Without oxygen to make energy we become fatigue. Balancing the pH of the body to improve circulation and detoxification is the first step in helping chronic fatigue syndrome.



Root Cause of Most Disease is Acidic Cells

The other day I posted about researchers finding that acidic brain cells that can’t clean efficiently, may be one root cause of Alzheimer’s. The root cause of most disease is acidic cells. You are made up of cells, if they become acidic their ability to clean cellular waste from within the cell is compromised. This can happen in any part of the body that has limited lymph flow and circulation.  Type-2 diabetes, ALS, MS, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, insomnia, breast cancer and heart failure have all been linked to cellular waste. Really, this is occurring in most diseases from chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, depression, fatty liver, swelling, Lymphedema, Lipedema and weight gain. If you want help in overcoming an illness, lowering your risk of disease or attaining a vibrant happy life you need to maintain your lymphatic system to improve lymph flow, circulation and detoxification. This is real science that you can use to improve your health.


Podcast 80 Health Benefits of Maintaining Your Lymphatic System

lymphatic system drawingMost people don’t know they have a lymphatic system, a tiny network of vessels and nodes that cleans their body and brain. There are many health benefits of maintaining your lymphatic system. When you ignore the lymphatic system your body and brain can fill with cellular waste that can limit how you feel and think. Everyone needs to maintain their lymphatic system. If you have any problem from pain, anxiety, depression, fatigue, insomnia, foggy thinking, weight gain, swelling, digestive or skin issues you need to detox and maintain this system to heal and feel better. It takes an awareness of the lymphatic system and the need to maintain it to have a healthier life. Simple steps like eating a more alkaline diet, basic supplements like magnesium, enzymes and manually maintaining your lymphatic system with a lymphatic therapist or learning self-lymphatic drainage can help improve your lymphatic system and health.



Acidic Cell pH May be One Root Cause of Alzheimer’s Disease

John Ossipinsky explains new science how an acidic cell pH may be one root cause of Alzheimer’s. When cells in the brain, called astrocytes are acidic, it can limit detoxification in the cells. Researchers say this may be one root cause of Alzheimer’s. John has been writing about how an acidic pH can limit the lymphatic system and lead to a buildup of cellular waste that impedes detoxification since 2003. You can help lower your risk of Alzheimer’s by improving lymph flow in the body and brain by using diet, supplements and self-lymphatic drainage.

Podcast 79 Two Important Steps to Help Autism

Lymphatic System Detoxification AutismEmerging science of the lymphatic system can help those with autism. There are two important steps to help autism. One – balance pH of the body. Two – improve lymph flow through the body and brain.  These same two steps can play an important role in helping aggressiveness, ADHD, developmental delayed, Asperger’s and others on the autism spectrum. In 2015 lymphatic vessels were found in the brain. In 2017 researchers found that the major outflow of cerebrospinal fluid is through lymphatic vessels. When the pH of the body is overly acidic it limits lymph flow, circulation and detoxification in the brain. If cerebrospinal fluid cannot leave the brain efficiently through lymphatic vessels, then proteins, parts of cells, can build in the brain (also the digestive organs and skin), limiting function. The first two-steps to helping autism is balancing pH which improves circulation and then manually improving lymphatic system to improve detoxification.


Help IBD, Colitis and Crohn’s By Improving Lymph Flow

Digestive diseases like IBD, colitis, and Crohn’s can limit your life. You can help IBD, colitis and Crohn’s by improving lymph flow. When the lymphatic’s in the abdomen become congested, especially the cisterna chyli which is three lymph vessels in the abdomen,  acidic waste can build in the intestines creating pain, diarrhea or constipation. By improving lymph flow you help improve detoxification to reduce acidity in the intestines to improve healing. There are many ways to improve lymph flow, from an alkaline diet, magnesium, enzymes and self-lymphatic drainage.


Podcast 78 Help Lipedema and Associated Health Problems by Balancing pH

Lipedema - Lymphatic Vessels of the Leg, vintage engraved illustration.Lipedema or Lipoedema is a growing problem that mostly affects woman with swelling in their legs and arms. You can help Lipedema and associated health problems by balancing pH. Many people with swelling or Lipedema don’t have just swelling, often they have one or two other health issues like depression, anxiety, insomnia, digestive issues or skin problems like eczema. When your lymphatic system is compromised you can have many health issues since the lymphatic system maintains every system in the body, even the brain. When it comes to swelling like Lipedema and associated problems it is important to know your pH, potential of hydrogen or whether your body is acidic, in balance or alkaline. When your tissues become overly acidic the lymphatic vessels and microcirculation of your veins can constrict and limit circulation. This can allow cellular waste to build in the tissues of the skin where the superficial lymphatic system is located and create little log jams limiting circulation. This is how inflammation begins as cellular waste in your tissues. Improving the lymphatic system with a more alkaline diet, basic supplements, exercise and manual self-lymphatic drainage can help you have more control over your lipedema and associated health problems.
