Signs of a clogged lymphatic system.


Our body is made up of numerous glands and organs that should always be kept clean.

If they are filled with toxic substances, they begin to malfunction and cannot function properly. One of the most important systems to keep a close eye on is the lymphatic system.


Our lymphatic system is a very important part of our immune system and circulatory system. It contains the lymph nodes, glands, tonsils, spleen and thymus gland.


Our lymph has many functions:

✔ It transports white blood cells to and from the lymph nodes.

✔ Removes any interstitial fluid from tissues.

✔ Transports dendritic cells (antigen-presenting cells (APCs)) to the lymph nodes and thus stimulates an immune response.

✔ The lymphatic system acts like the digestive system and transports and absorbs fatty acids and fats.


However, many people have problems with the lymphatic system due to macro and micronutrient deficiencies. They eat only processed foods and have little physical activity in their lives.


Signs of lymphatic system stagnation:

- Frequent headaches

- Arthritis

- Chronic fatigue

- Sinus infections

- Poor skin condition

- Overweight

- Digestive disorders


☝ The lymphatic system needs our body to move because it does not have an active pumping system. It needs our muscle actions, body movements, bowel activity, and breathing.


Alternative ways to keep the LS healthy:

🔸️ Physical Activity

Start with 10k steps a day, that's a one hour walk, or with not very intense exercise, then gradually increase the intensity.


🔸️ Lymphatic drainage massage

This should be performed by a qualified massage therapist.


🔸️ Contrast showers

Hot water can dilate our blood vessels while cold water constricts them. A “pump” action is created that “removes” fluids. People with cardiovascular disease and pregnant women are advised to take contrast showers after consulting a doctor.


🔸️ Drink clean water

Make sure that you drink adequate amount of water. Also drink lemon water as well.


🔸️ Avoid too tight clothing

Tight clothing reduces circulation in the lymphatic system. Such clothes can cause blockages in the lymphatic system.


🔸️ Breathe deeply

Our body contains more lymph than blood, but no organ can pump it. Practicing deep breathing is an action that can help our lymphatic system.


🔸️ Eat foods that help improve lymph flow

Make sure you eat foods that are rich in nutrients.

Avoid or minimize foods that cause clogging of the lymphatic system:

▪︎ processed foods

▪︎ sugar

▪︎ artificial sweeteners

▪︎ table salt

▪︎ soy


And remember, just by changing our habits, including our eating habits, we improve our health!


Cleanse your lymph by following the Eat Well - Feel Well nutrition program for wellness in the book “Eat Good - Feel Good”.
