The lymphatic system is the body’s natural cleansing and filtering system and is responsible for:
- removing waste + harmful substances
- recycling nutrients back into the bloodstream
- sustaining healthy cells
- strengthening immunity
- supporting digestion
- maintaining homeostasis within the body
Clearly, it has a BIG job to do and is intricately connected and plays a crucial part in the health of every other system and organ within the body – especially the circulatory, immune, nervous and digestive systems.
Our body’s natural detoxification system is a complex network of hundreds of nodes + one-way vessels that sits just below the surface of the skin, collecting and sweeping away waste, toxins, pathogens and impurities. And because of today’s toxic society and adopting more sedentary lifestyles, we must be diligent in supporting lymphatic drainage.
Because the Lymphatic System doesn’t have an internal pump to assist these processes (unlike the circulatory system that is propelled by the heart that continually pumps blood) and we have 3x more lymphatic fluid than blood in our bodies – so having a fully functioning lymphatic system fully relies on YOU.
Without manual support to stimulate lymphatic drainage, this system can become blocked or clogged. If lymphatic flow is stagnant or congested, it slows down all of the vital functions we mentioned above, and cellular health starts to significantly decline – leading to signs of aging, dullness, puffiness, sensitivities, acne and inflammation. Not to mention, brain fog, fatigue, gut issues, serious health conditions and degenerative diseases.
Simply put, lymphatic stagnation is not good.
