You might have a clogged lymphatic system if you suffer from the following conditions:
The lymphatic system is one of the most overlooked yet significant systems in the body. It is one of two major circulatory systems (the other being cardiovascular), and is just as important to take care of.
The lymphatic system runs throughout the entire body, helping remove waste from every cell and regulating the immune system. It is a complex network of nodes, ducts and vessels, and also includes the spleen, thymus, adenoids and tonsils.
What Is The Lymphatic System?
The lymphatic system is comparable to drains. If you can remember the last time your kitchen sink clogged up and began emanating putrid smells, then this is what I’m talking about. When the drains aren’t working, things start building up and it becomes a breeding ground for bacteria.
So naturally, when this happens, we call the plumber and they come fix the drains and get them working again. However, when our own drainage system (aka. the lymphatic system) becomes plugged, we can’t just call a plumber – we need to take our health into our own hands.
A congested lymphatic system can lead to serious illnesses and chronic disease. If we don’t take the necessary steps to ensure our lymphatic system is running well, our immune system will remain impaired and naturally, we’ll get sick.
The lymphatic system works by absorbing excess fluids, fats, and toxins from our tissues and into the blood where it can eventually be filtered out by the liver and kidneys.
Unfortunately, the lymphatic system usually has a hard time filtering out these substances due to a major increase in nutritional deficiencies, inactivity (too much sitting), and consuming too many toxins (whether that be from our food, air, or water).
