In this practical guide to supporting your lymph health naturally, Christopher Vasey explores the essential role played by the lymphatic system in your overall health and offers self-care methods for strengthening and maintaining this important part of your body’s immune system.
The author explains how the lymphatic system not only consists of the lymph circulating through your lymph nodes and lymphatic vessels, which helps drain toxins and flush cellular wastes, but also includes your bone marrow and several organs, such as the spleen and thymus, which produce lymphocytes to defend and protect your body against infections. He reveals the causes for a weakened or poorly functioning lymphatic system as well as the diseases and conditions that can arise if you suffer from reduced lymph health.
Explaining how to improve the function of your lymphatic system, the author details 12 natural therapies to support your lymph health. He looks at simple dietary changes and explains how food toxins are a principle cause for sluggish circulation or obstruction of lymph. He examines compression therapies, breathing practices, and physical exercises that stimulate the lymphatic vessels to improve circulation and explores hydration, herbal remedies, detox therapies, “dry” cures, and reflexology massage. He also looks at trampoline techniques for restoring full circulation and removing blockages from the lymphatic system.
Showing how lymph health is the key to a strong immune system, this guide enables you to improve your lymphatic function, boost your body’s natural detoxification abilities, and enhance your overall health and well-being.
