If you happen to have symptoms such as being sick too often or tired, then your lymphatic system may not be working as it should.
This system is composed of your lymph nodes, spleen, thymus and vessels which are carrying the fluids for protection of your organism from diseases and it can get sluggish sometimes from several reasons such as wrong diet and physical inactivity and also a severe disease.
In this case, you can detox your lymphatic system in just a few phases which will improve your health in general.
The symptoms that you may recognize are the following:
- Rings get tight on fingers
- Skin is puffy, showing edema
- Soreness, stiffness, achiness in the mornings
- Lethargic, drained, sluggishness
- Bloating, water retention
- Itchy skin
- Bad skin (dryness, acne, premature aging, etc.)
- Breast swelling or soreness with hormonal cycles
- Brain fog
- Cold hands and feet
- Chronic headaches and/or migraines
- Chronic inflammation
Schedule a massage for yourself from a professional therapist. This massage includes massaging the lymph nodes on your body, and many vessels located under the skin, which are carrying the lymph.
Pay attention to your food and try to avoid processed one including candy, white bread, fast food, canned food, processed meat and baked goods.
Start eating more healthy food in order to clean your system such as citrus fruits, lemons, oranges, green vegetables, garlic, wheatgrass, flax seeds and ginger.
You can also include some herbs like for example burdock root, dandelion, parsley, nettles and many other for cleaning the lymphatic system.
It is recommended to go to sauna or steam room because the sweating is getting rid of the toxins from the organism, and the heat from the sauna or steam will increase your heart rate and breathing.
If your liver is congested then your lymphatic system is too, so try to clean your liver on a natural way.
It is important to do some exercises. The physical inactivity also impacts on the lymphatic system, so you can start walking more often or go for a run sometimes.
