16 Signs It’s Time To Drain Your Lymph Fluids!

The lymphatic system is one of the least well known systems in the body, but has a critical role to play in keeping us healthy. Did you know that you have twice as much lymph fluid as blood?! 

It is part of the bodies natural sewage treatment system with a whole network of tissues and organs that rid the body of toxins, waste, and other unwanted materials;

The transportation of lymph fluid is a primary function of the lymphatic system. Lymph is a fluid that contains white blood cells that are instrumental in fighting infection all throughout the body. Thus, a healthy lymphatic system is key to a healthy body.

Below are common symptoms of a congested lymphatic system:

  • Rings get tight on fingers
  • Soreness and/or stiffness in the morning
  • Feeling tired
  • Bloating / Holding on to water
  • Constant itching of the skin
  • Weight gain and extra belly fat
  • Swollen glands
  • Low immunity
  • Brain fog
  • Breast swelling or soreness with each cycle
  • Dry skin
  • Mild rash or acne
  • Hypersensitivity
  • Mild headaches
  • Irritation due to common environmental allergens
  • Constipation, diarrhea, and/or mucus in the stool

Although there are many reasons why the lymphatic system and lymph nodes may become congested stress has been identified as the cause of about 80% of all chronic health issues. 

The chemistry of stress is degenerative and lymph congesting.

How to Improve Lymph Health

1. Exercise: 

The best way to get the lymphatic system moving is to exercise, and the best type of exercise is rebounding. Rebounding is jumping on a small or large trampoline. Do this for 10-20 minutes a day.

2. Near Infrared Sauna: 

Sauna therapy allows the body to sweat while in parasympathetic nervous system mode, so toxins are being sweated out. The circulation/release of toxins, the regeneration of tissues, and the heat all work together to improve lymphatic flow.

3. Yin Yoga: 

Yin Yoga requires poses to be held anywhere from 3 to 10 minutes. The change in gravity one experiences in these poses and the differences in pressure help to improve lymphatic flow.

4. Lymphatic Drainage Massage: 

Physically help the lymph’s to drain with a massage.

5. Hydrotherapy Showers: 

Hydrotherapy showers are just a shower where hot and cold water are used alternatively. Towards the end of your shower, just switch the water quickly from hot to cold a couple of times.

6. Dry Skin Brushing: 

Brushing on the skin with a natural bristle brush has been shown to improve lymphatic flow. 

7. Eat Healthy and Drink Water: 

Dehydration is one of the leading cause of congestion in the lymphatic system . Drink plenty of water to keep it moving. Also, it is important to remove processed foods from one’s diet to keep as many toxins out as possible. Eat warm drinks and soups in the winter and cooling foods in the summer.
