Electro Lymphatic Therapy & Lymphatic Care
The Lymphatic system is referred to as our second circulatory system. It consists of a network of vessels carrying lymph (water, proteins and electrolytes) from the tissue fluids to the bloodstream. It feeds literally every tissue and organ. It is the transportation highway for the immune and repair function of the body. At intervals along the length of these lymphatic vessels are groups of nodes. The node function is to filter lymph through the action of scavenging white blood cells and preventing foreign particles from entering the bloodstream. The structures of this system help provide immunity, which means resistance to infection and disease. We call it “the information highway” of the immune system, creating vitality, beauty and preventing illness. Recognized in Europe as a primary system, it aids in purification, filtration and delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the cells. How well it is filtering and functioning is the integrity of your immune system and the health of the cells. Symptoms of lymph congestion can be fatigue, allergies, joint pain and inflammation, recurring illness, swelling, slow healing, chronic constipation, breast congestion, prostate dysfunction, cellulite and difficulty losing weight.
The Lymphatic system is most important in the elimination of toxins. Lymph nodes and vessels can become sluggish and clogged with bacteria and protein deposits similar to those in the vascular system. Consequently, toxic waste matter cannot effectively be released nor can the immune system function optimally. Inability to lose weight is often a sign of sluggish lymph, a combination of excess fluid retention, due to lymph congestion, combined with over acidity. Research has shown that there is a significant relationship between the sluggish flow of the lymph system and chronic illness. Blood and lymph are interdependent, so whatever helps the lymph to flow, helps the blood to flow.
Most illness begins in the capillaries. Cells are nourished when blood capillaries supply oxygen, glucose, nutrients and fats into the interstitial space that surrounds the cells. Water and blood proteins (albumin, globulin and fibrinogen ) are also fed from the capillaries. Excessive water and cellular waste pass back through capillary walls to be carried away by veins. Blood proteins, hormones and cellular debris are carried away by the lymphatic network, where they are filtered by the lymph nodes, then put back into the circulation of the blood. Lymph nodes filter out impurities such as dead red blood cells, chemicals, toxins, bacteria, viruses and cancer cells. White blood cells that are contained inside the lymph nodes ingest and destroy these potential pathogens. Sluggish lymphatic flow may lead to swelling, preventing oxygen from getting into the cell bed: causing cellular stress, which can lead to lack of energy, weight gain and illness. This swelling and lack of oxygen are the leading cause of inflammation and pain.
Unlike the blood, which has the heart as a pump, the lymphatic system relies on muscle contraction and exercise,as it has no pump. Some factors that can lead to lymph blockage are stress, dehydration, lack of exercise, wireless technologies, hormone imbalance, injury and chemical or heavy metal toxicity. Commonly treated systems may be: Rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, weight gain, chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus, inflammation, allergies, breast congestion, brain fog, hormonal imbalance, prostate health and cellulite.
Cellulite is most often a lymphatic condition. It’s influenced by poor lymphatic drainage and excess acidity in the body. Unlike superficial cellulite treatments, lymphatic drainage is one of the few techniques to be successful in the permanent reduction of cellulite.
