The Lymphatic System and Detoxification
The movement of fluid through the lymphatic system is essential in detoxifying the body, supporting the immune system, and maintaining homeostasis (normal healthy function.) The fluid carried by the lymphatic system largely consists of wastes disposed of by the cells. Think of the lymph as the body’s garbage collection system. Normally the lymph is pumped through the vessels by the contraction of muscles squeezing the fluid through the vessels that contain check-valves that only allow the waste to flow in one direction. Our body’s electromagnetic field and even breathing also aid the motion of waste. A clogged or sluggish lymphatic system prevents the body from circulating vital fluids and eliminating toxic waste and dulls the immune system’s response. This makes us vulnerable to swelling, infection, pain and a whole host of diseases.
In order to be healthy, it is essential to keep the energy and fluids moving so that the body’s own natural intelligence may operate in its full healing capacity. In addition, each cell must be enlivened with its own unique frequency and ideal energy-state and be fully connected to the electrical impulses that flow through and are kept balanced by lymph. Lymph is much more than waste; it is the intracellular matrix of enzymes, nutrients, sugars, cytokines, and hundreds of necessary chemicals that make up a healthy slurry that bathes the cells. It’s like a healthy river, needing a constant flow of fresh nourishment or it becomes a stagnant pond.
EMFs and the Lymph System
Stimulating the lymphatic system by the use of electrical fields is a well-established and recognized therapy in Canada, Mexico, Europe, and Asia as an effective aid in detoxifying the body while opening and cleansing the lymphatic and circulatory systems.
Lymphatic capillaries converge to form lymph vessels that ultimately return lymph fluid back to the circulatory system via the subclavian vein. The presence of one-way valves in the lymph vessels ensures unidirectional flow of lymph fluid toward the subclavian vein.
If excess fluid cannot be returned to the blood stream then interstitial fluid builds up, leading to swelling of the tissues with fluid, this is called edema – a sick, stagnant pond.
Lymph nodes are the filters along the lymphatic system. Their job is to filter out and trap bacteria, viruses, cancer cells, and other unwanted substances, and to make sure they are safely eliminated from the body. One can start to understand how important it is to keep the lymph system healthy.
