Benefits of a Lymph Drain

The benefits of having a lymph drain are numerous.

The proper functioning of the lymphatic system is critical to our body’s ability to detoxify and regenerate tissues.  The lymph system filters out toxins and foreign substances and maintains a healthy immune system.  It is a complex system composed primarily of lymph vessels and nodes.  When the lymph circulation stagnates, fluids, proteins, cells and toxins accumulate and cellular functioning is significantly compromised.  This opens the way to many physical ailments.

There is a wonderful technique that is designed to activate and cleanse the human fluid system.  It is called the lymph drainage (pronounced-drahnahge) technique.  This technique works with the flat of my hands, using all my fingers in a mild pumping movement making wave-like movements to activate fluid circulation and stimulate the lymphatic flow.

Lymph drainage therapy has many benefits:

  • Reduces edemas (swelling)
  • Detoxes the body
  • Regenerates tissue, including burns, scar (pre- and post- surgical), wrinkles and stretch marks)
  • Relieves chronic inflammation (sinusitis, bronchitis, acne and allergies)
  • Reduces the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia
  • Relieves chronic pain
  • It helps to relieve insomnia, stress, and loss of memory
  • Alleviates body fat and cellulite tissue
  • It relieves muscle conditions and some forms of constipation.

Let’s Get Healthy – Step 4

A 5th step to being healthy is to be aware of our elimination schedules. Our body is not designed to eliminate every 2-3 days, or once a week or twice a month.  We are suppose to “go” within an hour or two after every meal.  This means when we eat breakfast we should go within 1 to 2 hours after this meal.  After lunch, we should be “going” 1 to 2 hours after this meal. After dinner, we should be “going” 1 to 2 hours after this meal.  When we eat dinner at 6:00 pm, we should be “going” by 9:00 am the next morning.  This elimination schedule is important.  Each time we “go”, the stool should be formed–about 12 inches long and about 1 to 1 and 1/2 inches in diameter.  We would call these “healthy poops”.

If we are eating 3 meals a day but only going to the bathroom once a day, this is when we start to get that build up on the walls of the colon.  This is when we can become quite constipated.  After a time, we feel gassy and bloated.  We will start to have some digestive disorders.

Our colon is a very important organ.  We would do ourselves a favor to keep it as healthy as possible.  The healthy way is to eliminate properly every day and be on a healthy schedule.
