“For years I have craved sugary foods, but didn’t know why. When I saw the local community center was offering a program on Stressed Out Bodies; Cravings, What Are These About I was intrigued to learn more. Michelle Sanderbeck's presentation helped me to understand why my body was craving certain foods and how to give my body the food and nutrients it needs so that I won’t crave the foods that I know that are not good for my health.” Andrew S.

Lymphatic Detoxification

A healthy lymphatic system equals a healthy immune system! 

The lymph travels with the nerves, arteries and veins and is by itself twice as big as the arterial blood supply system – and maybe twice as important. 

The lymphatic system is an extremely important system of our body, and perhaps the most forgotten and least studied and understood system of the body. The lymphatic system is a network of ducts, nodes and fluid. It is like the garbage collector in the body, draining excess fluid and toxins that accumulate in tissues and organs. It also delivers water, proteins, lipids, white blood cells, hormones, nutrients and waste into the blood stream. These nodes also help in conveying antibodies into the muscles, making our bodies stronger and more resistant to fatigue. Lymph nodes play a significant role in our immune system, which often people forget to pay attention to. 

A healthy lymphatic system means a healthy immune system. On the other hand, a deficient lymphatic circulation may weaken and intoxicate the body, creating various health issues such as poor breast health, swelling, weight gain, skin problems, premature aging, and even pain. 

The lymphatic system is not capable of pumping toxins out of these nodes alone and heavily relies on muscle activity or other. 

Major Causes Of Lymphatic Congestion

  • It has been identified that 80% of all chronic health issues are related to STRESS which is degenerative and causes lymph congestion. 
  • Inadequate Digestion creates imbalances and may irritate intestinal villi, which is a primary reason for lymph congestion. 

Signs of lymphatic congestion are: 

  • Cold hands and feet 
  • Soreness and/or stiffness in the morning 
  • Feeling tired 
  • Bloating/ Water retention/ swelling in the feet/ankles and fingers 
  • Weight gain and extra belly fat
  • Dry and/or Itchy skin 
  • Breast swelling or soreness with each cycle 
  • Rings get tight on fingers
  • Brain fog 
  • Swollen glands
  • Low immunity
  • Mild rash or acne
  • Hypersensitivity
  • Mild headaches
  • Elevated histamine and irritation due to common environmental allergens
  • Occasional constipation, diarrhea, and/or mucus in the stool

Almost every one of these health concerns can be linked to poor waste removal in the lymphatic system.


Lymph Stress Point Exam

The lymphatic system is a network of ducts, nodes and fluid. The human body has between 500- 700 lymph nodes with 100 of those in the armpit and groin area.  

The lymph fluid not only delivers nutrients and fat soluble vitamins (Vitamin A, D, E and K) it also collects the garbage like dead cells, dried blood from bruising, and toxins. 

The viscosity of lymph fluid should be like water. As these dead cells, dried blood and toxins are accumulated the will fluid get dense, almost like putting particles of sand in the water. There is a big difference between a glass of water with particulate matter in it and a glass of wet sand. Depending on the density determines how well the fluid moves through the body. 

When the lymph system is congested, toxins remain in the body, creating a situation for many numerous health challenges to manifest. 

Let’s look at the lymphatic system like this... In your kitchen all food scraps and other garbage are put into the trash can and you turn the heat up in the house to say... 98.6 degrees and let it sit for a week or so... What happens? The trash starts to smell and have all kinds on thing growing in it. The body is no different...that lymph fluid needs to be moved and eliminated from the body if you want to stay healthy. 

The Lymph Stress point exam is used to determine the source of the lymphatic congestion and identify the best way to relieve this congestion.

Medi-cupping

When the lymph system is congested the lymph fluid gets thick almost gel-like. This makes it difficult for it to move through the system. 

Medi-cupping technology uses a vacuum machine, with glass or plastic cups, to create suction on the body surface. First oils are applied to the skin which will help create a seal for the cups edge. The cups are then gently lifted up and glided over the skin or other techniques like shaking, rotating, and popping are used depending on the different skin conditions. This suction reaches deep into the soft tissue pulling inflammation and toxins from the body tissue, thru the circulatory and lymphatic systems and readily eliminated from the body.  

With a succession of gentle, rhythmic and pumping movements, lymphatic drainage facilitates cleansing, detoxification and decongestion.

    Lymphatic Machine – giggle machine

    Our body vibrates every single moment it pumps blood. Vibration is essential for our blood circulation and lymphatic drainage. But what is lymphatic drainage?

    The lymphatic system is not one we hear about often, despite the fact that it plays an important role in the health of our body. Previously categorized as a simple drainage network, we now know that it is far more complex and involved in many conditions from cancer to asthma.

    The lymphatic system is a network of ducts and nodes that drain toxins from the muscles in the body. These nodes also help in conveying antibodies into the muscles, making our bodies stronger and more resistant to fatigue. Lymph nodes play a significant role in our immune system, which often people forget to pay attention to. The lymphatic system, however, is not capable of pumping toxins out of these nodes alone and heavily relies on muscle activity. The lymphatic detoxification machine can help. When you stand up straight on the lymphatic detoxification machine, you can feel the day's aches and pains, stiffness and muscle tightness, often caused by standing too long on your feet while working or even exercise, begin to drain away. This is the lymphatic drainage at work. It is also fighting infection and bacteria. Spending a few minutes a day on the lymphatic detoxification machine will make you feel lighter, looser and more relaxed. Try it after a tough day. You will be amazed at your revitalization.

    Benefits of Lymphatic Drainage include:

    • Reducing edemas (swelling) and lymph edemas of various origins
    • Detoxifying of the body
    • Relieving chronic and sub-acute inflammations, including sinusitis, bronchitis and otitis (ear)
    • Relieving chronic pain
    • Regenerating tissue, including repair of burns, wounds, stretch marks and wrinkles
    • Stimulating the immune system
    • Reducing symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia
    • Creating deep relaxation to aid insomnia, reduce stress, improve loss of vitality and even reduce memory problems
    • Lymphatic Drainage has anti-aging effects
    • Reduction of fat and cellulite tissue
