Do you have any idea what lymphatic drainage or even lymphatic system means? If you don’t, don’t be disappointed because most people have never heard those terms either. But this does not mean the lymphatic system is unimportant. In fact, it is just as important as the blood circulatory system according to a 2012 USC research. Studies have shown that the lymphatic system plays a role in tissue repair and inflammation control in various body organs. But when this lymphatic system is not drained properly, it can make the immune system impaired or cause lymph node tumors. This is why you need to exercise both your body and the lymphatic system in order to stay completely healthy.
Why It is Necessary to Detoxify the Lymphatic System Regularly
We are exposed to up to 82,000 toxins every single day. As these toxins build up, it becomes imperative for us to detoxify appropriately to avoid burdening our body organs. If we allow our organs become burdened, they will not function optimally, causing health deterioration. This is why the lymphatic system is so important. It cleans the fluids around our cells, removes waste products and evacuates any other type of impurity. It is only when all this cleansing has been done that our body can function normally else we may develop any of the following ailments: indigestion, fibromyalgia, bloating, multiple sclerosis, aches and pains, chronic fatigue syndrome, aches/pains, and obesity.
How to Detoxify Your Lymphatic System
According to Dr. David Williams, “No drug exists that has the ability to improve lymphatic flow, the job can easily be handled through the topical application of Castor oil”. The castor oil can be applied easily on the skin, target the lower abdomen with the oil to stimulate your lymphatic system.
You can use a cotton cloth for much better effects. You will put several drops of castor oil on the cloth and compress your skin with it all though the night. This will yield beneficial effects like reduced inflammations, improved digestive system, and proper lymphatic fluids circulation.
Herbs and teas can also be used for the purification of the lymphatic system. Experts believe the best herb for this purpose is Echinacea. This plant strengthens the immune system and also aids the lymphatic system in its functions. This herb is also used to reduce and prevent inflammations; it also tackles bacteria, viral and fungal infections. Echinacea can also help to strengthen macrophages which are lymph node cells that excrete toxins from the lymph.
Sweating can help you get rid of toxins. This is why you shouldn’t try to prevent your body from sweating because it is an avenue to eject harmful toxins from the body. A sauna bath will raise your body temperature and stimulate your sweat glands. Consequently, your body loses toxic chemicals like copper, mercury, led, sodium, etc.
