John Ossipinsky's Lymphatic System Health Blog

Learn Life Changing Science of the Lymphatic System and Health


John Ossipinsky has been working with the lymphatic system for over 24 years, helping client’s with their pain and debility. He is an author 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 maintaining their lymphatic system. Understanding the body’s sewage treatment system can help you overcome an illness, lower your risk of disease or to have a vibrant, happy life. 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.

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.

body and brain.

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.


Help PANDAS by Improving the Lymph-Brain Connection

If you have a child who is exhibiting extreme behaviors after strep throat, they may have a congested lymphatic system and PANDAS. You can help PANDAS by improving the Lymph-Brain Connection to help improve circulation and detoxification of cellular waste from the brain. In 2015 lymphatic vessels were found in the brain. In 2017 the major outflow of cerebrospinal fluid is through lymphatic vessels. PANDAS stands for pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders associated with streptococcal infections. When the lymphatic system becomes congested circulation in the brain can become impeded, similar to log jams in a river. Manually improving lymph flow in a specific manner to improve lymph flow and circulation in the brain can dramatically improve natural detoxification of cellular waste to help how your child feels and thinks.


Lower Risk of Heart Failure by Improving Lymph Flow

Recent research linked the buildup of amyloid to heart failure. You can lower risk of heart failure by improving lymph flow to reduce the buildup of desmin proteins which are clumping together and congesting the heart. When the lymphatic system is working optimally it helps to reabsorb cellular waste that can build in the heart limiting the ability of the lymphatic system to reabsorb fluid and cellular waste. When the heart becomes overly acidic it can limit lymph flow and lead to proteins building in the heart to form amyloid deposits which can be fatal. Improving the lymphatic system with a more alkaline diet, magnesium, enzymes, exercise and manually improving the lymphatic system can help lower your risk of heart failure.


Podcast 77 Detoxification of Senescent Cells Extends Lifespan

Detox your body of senescent cells and cellular wasteMany baby boomers are searching for the fountain of youth. Are you on a quest to extend your life? It is important to know that detoxification of senescent cells extends lifespan. Senescent cells, are cells that are no longer viable.  They have stopped dividing and have not gone through the normal death process of apoptosis. Apoptosis is normal cell death where the cell breaks apart and is taken up by the body in autophagy. In senescence, cells float around decomposing, giving off a substance that damages nearby tissues. The buildup of senescent cells has been linked to heart failure, atherosclerosis, osteoarthritis and heart failure. Many other health problems have been linked to cellular waste (amyloid) building in the body or brain. Alzheimer’s, ALS, MS, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, breast cancer and type-2 diabetes. It is time to see how most health problems are due to cellular waste building in the body and brain. By improving the lymphatic system you help metabolize and reduce the buildup of senescent cells and cellular waste from the body and brain.


Lower Risk Of Autism by Reducing Toxicity From Monthly Vaccinations

With each set of monthly vaccinations an infant has an inflammatory response which can make them more acidic and toxic. You can lower risk of autism by reducing toxicity from monthly vaccinations. By improving your child’s lymphatic system to improve detoxification you can help lower their risk of having ADHD, Asperger’s or Autism. In 2015 lymphatic vessels were found in the brain. A direct lymph-brain connection that can be used to help your child be less toxic and think clearer.

Podcast 76 Help Heart Disease by Balancing pH to Improve Detoxification

Human heart , heart diseaseAs we age the body’s ability to clean itself is diminished, this can lead to cellular waste building in the heart creating heart disease and heart failure. New research has found cellular waste called amyloid in the heart, in heart failure. You can help heart disease by balancing pH to improve detoxification. The idea that we are filling with cellular waste is an easy one to understand once you see that the lymphatic system is the body’s sewage treatment system. Everyone has a tiny network of vessels and nodes that helps to clean their body and brain of cellular waste, fats, and other debris. In the case of heart disease a protein called Desmin is building in the tissues of the heart. You can make your body a cleaning machine by limiting processed foods, eating a more alkaline diet, taking alkaline supplements, systemic enzymes, daily exercise and manually improving your lymphatic system.


Podcast 75 Help Difficulty Breathing with Lymphatic System Detoxification

Lymphatic System and Lungs Difficulty BreathingDifficulty breathing can manifest as shortness of breath and a tight chest. You can help difficulty breathing with lymphatic system detoxification. When the tissues of the lungs and chest become overly acidic they constrict and limit the ability of the lungs to stretch and take a good breath. This is a problem I hear most about from clients and those on social media, they are having a hard time breathing. The goal is to help change the pH of the tissues of the lungs and chest from being overly acidic to a more balanced pH. When your tissues are more in balance they relax and have better circulation, which is healing. Balancing pH with a more alkaline diet, supplements like magnesium, light exercise and improving the lymphatic system can help improve how you breathe.



New Era Of The Lymphatic System Is Here

The lymphatic system is an emerging science that everyone should understand to improve their health. The new era of the lymphatic system is here and can help you maintain your body and brain. Most people don’t know they have a lymphatic system, a tiny network of vessels and nodes that helps to maintain their skin, muscles, bones, organs, blood vessels, nerves and brain. When you ignore the lymphatic system you become full of cellular waste, fat and inflammation, this is a breeding ground for disease. Maintaining your lymphatic system is empowering and life changing. Have you had a lymphatic system detoxification lately?


Podcast 74 Help Fibromyalgia By Balancing pH

Tablet with the diagnosis Fibromyalgia on the displayFibromyalgia is a chronic disease that affects mostly women. You can help fibromyalgia by balancing pH. When the body’s pH is in balance the body and brain have better circulation and natural detoxification. Between three to six million people in the United States are affected. Symptoms include numerous tender and painful spots on the body, debilitating fatigue, headaches and migraines, irritable bowel, restless leg syndrome, dry eyes and mouth, concentration problems, skin sensitivities, rashes, arthritis, anxiety, depression, dizziness, vision problems, the inability to think clearly, and impaired memory (fibro-fog). Learning how to balance pH and improving the lymphatic system using diet, basic supplements and activating the lymphatic system you can gain more control over your lymphatic system and fibromyalgia.

Help Thyroid Function By Improving Lymph Flow

The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped organ located in the base of your neck. You can help thyroid function by improving lymph flow through the organ. Thyroiditis is a general term that refers to “inflammation of the thyroid gland.” When the lymphatic system can no longer efficiently clean the thyroid it becomes inflamed which limits its ability to function. Many people have hypothyroid or hyperthyroid and don’t consider helping thyroid function by improving lymph flow and detoxification by eating a more alkaline diet, basic supplements like magnesium, systemic enzymes and doing self-lymphatic drainage or receiving a lymphatic drainage session.


Podcast 73 Help Chronic Sore Throat By Improving Lymph Flow

Woman With Sore ThroatI have had numerous clients through the years who have had chronic sore throats and didn’t know that a congested lymphatic system was a contributing factor. You can help chronic sore throat by improving lymph flow in the shoulders and throat. The lymphatic system is a tiny network of vessel and nodes that helps to maintain every system in the body. The major lymph drains are under the clavicle bones, the bones at the base of your throat. When these tiny vessels become congested, like a log jam in a river, acidic waste builds up into the tissues of the neck creating inflammation and pain. By manually improving lymph flow through the clavicle nodes, and lymphatics in the neck and throat you can help alleviate the inflammation that is causing the chronic sore throat. In addition to draining the tissues in the throat, eating a more alkaline diet, taking a couple of alkalizing supplements like magnesium or potassium can help balance the tissues in the throat to improve circulation and healing.
