Lymph drainage

2017-10-04 06:01

WHY IS THE LYMPH SO IMPORTANT?

• Integral part of the body’s defense mechanism.

• Prevents circulation of pathogens (bacterium, virus or microorganisms causing disease).

• Stores and releases lymphocytes to fight infections.

• Maintains fluid balance in the body.

• Supports digestive system by counteracting infection and absorbing fat.

Movement of body fluids is essential to the maintenance of health.

Drainages precedes supply

In order for oxygenated blood and nutrition to be received by a tissue, lymph carrying cellular waste and excess fluid must drain.

INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT THE LYMPH

• Your body holds twice as much lymph as blood.

• The network of the lymph vessels serves almost every cell in your body.

• If the movement of the lymph stopped entirely you would die in a matter of hours.

• Many believe that poor lymph health underlies a host of conditions, from cellulite to cancer.

SYMPTOMS OF STAGNANT LYMPH

Sluggish lymphatic movement can lead to unhealthy environment- just like a stagnant pool of water – as cell waste and toxins are not being removed.                                       

- Pelvic congestion may lead to endometriosis, ovarian cysts, period pain, irregular periods, and adhesions in and around the uterus, painful sex.

- Diaphragm congestion- which may lead to poor drainage of the lungs and heart.

Stagnant lymphatic fluid in and around the joints can lead to arthritic symptoms.

Excess accumulation of fluid in one area (swelling of the legs, ankles etc.)

Inflammation, invasion of bacteria or parasites, after surgery, irradiation of tumors (blockage/lump/clump/obstruction).

THE PURPOSE OF THE LYMPHATIC SYSTEM

- Is to collect and return interstitial fluid, including plasma protein to the blood and thus help maintain fluid balance.

- To defend the body against diseases by producing lymphocytes and antibodies.

- To absorb lipids from the intestine and transport them to the blood.
