The Lymphatic System is spread
like a tree, throughout your body delivering
nutrients to the cells and removing the waste
that is left behind. it is vital to take daily
actions to stimulate the flow of lymph to
assist in the removal of waste products from
your body. In fact it is so crucial to your
health, that you would die within 24 hours if
this system quit working.
The Lymphatic System - which
also includes the spleen, thymus, tonsils, and
bone marrow - is constantly defending the body
against millions of microscopic attackers. The
lymphatic system is given considerable
attention in the treatment of toxicity as well
as reducing edema.
Tiny vessels carry a colorless
fluid called lymph. Suspended in the fluid are
lymphocytes (white blood cells) whose purpose
is to fight disease and infection. The network
is connected by small bean sized organs called
Lymph nodes - which are mostly
in the arm pits, neck, groin, chest and
abdomen - filter the fluid and initiate your
body's immune system response.
You have 3 times as much lymph
fluid in your body as you do blood but, unlike
blood there is no pump to circulate the fluid.
Lack of exercise, shallow
breathing and even anger causes the lymphatic
system to become sluggish, which can cause
circulation to the cells to be impaired. This,
in turn, can effect the removal of toxic
waste. Exercise, massage and deep breathing
will stimulate the Lymphatic System, enable
detox, cleansing and pain release.
If toxins are not eliminated
from your cells effectively, numerous
disorders effecting the Immune System will
develop. Exercise effectively and speedily
moves body fluids, aiding the lymphatic system
in detox, extremely important for those who
get very little exercise, the elderly, the
sick and people in physical rehabilitation.
Every healing art on earth involves getting
oxygen to cells.
Dr. C. Samuel West.
Dr. West has dedicated a
lifetime to studying the Lymphatic System -
"When the lymphatic vessels are properly
activated they have the ability to pull out
the dead cells, poisons, and excess water from
around the cells to get the cells into what is
called the "Dry-State".
When we do what is necessary to get the cells
into the "Dry State" there is no excess water
around the cells, only enough water to fill
the crevices around the cells, and that is
all. This is the condition that all the cells
in your body must be in to get oxygen from the
blood stream. Furthermore, you don't get pain,
loss of energy or disease (of any kind) when
the cells are in this condition." - Dr. Samuel
