The Lymphatic Secret
New research reveals that 80% of overweight women have sluggish lymphatic systems.
The lymph channels are responsible for your body’s drainage and purification. If this magnificent and complex network is filtering and flowing efficiently excess fluid and stored toxins can be carried away from the cells. This can be the difference of an extra 10 to 15 pounds. Trapped fluids can cause bloating and bloated tissue can cause swelling up to two dress sizes.
Studies have shown that lymphatic drainage can push 78% of stagnant lymph back into circulation, making it a critical adjunct to exercise and healthy lifestyle for lasting weight loss.
Link Between Weight Loss and Lymphatic Drainage
The impact of the lymphatic system on the body’s ability to clear trapped fluids and stored toxins away from the cells is of upmost importance to healthy and lasting weight loss. By dissipating fluid congestion the lymph system can effectively support the body as it strives to maintain it’s natural alkalinity and ideal weight.
Many believe the lymphatic system to be the most powerful system of detoxification in the body. A decrease in proper lymph drainage can cause fluids that normally carry away waste to be trapped causing stagnation, bloating and weight gain. This bloating of tissues can prevent cells from absorbing nutrients and oxygen. As cells begin to starve for nourishment, food cravings and hunger begin to set in. Without adequate oxygen to ignite the metabolic process, fewer calories are burned and less energy is produced.
Congested lymph can interfere with thyroid function necessary to metabolize and release stored fat.
Lymphatic drainage has been found to increase the volume of lymph flow by as much as 20 times, reducing bloating and water retention by restoring the body’s ability to purify and balance itself.
