The body is made up of several “systems”:
- Circulation System Cardiovascular
- Skeletal System
- Muscular System
- Digestive System mouth,salivary glands, liver, gallbladder,stomach,small intestine, large intestine,pancreas…..
- Lymphatic System lymph, lymph vessels, lymph nodes, thymus, tonsils, spleen and adenoids & Immune System
- Nervous System
- Integumentary (skin, membranes,hair,nails,sweat glands, oil glands)
- Endocrine System
- Reproductive System
- Urinary System
Some organs are in more than one “system”, serving more than one function. Your Lymphatic System is crucial to good health. It is your bodies sewer system, your drainage ditches.…leading to the dump, your large intestine. True, they all work together, but if your immune system dies, quits, or in the case of AIDS…is taken over; microbes, virus’, bacteria and diseases, soon kill you. The Immune System is cells and proteins, the Lymphatic System is organs, vessels, and nodes.
Drugs, alcohol, and smoking; even smoking Marijuana; all negatively affect the Immune System. Bad foods, stress, chemical toxins (like baby oil, MSG, and un-natural additives) affect your Lymphatic System. Tight cloths can restrict Lymph flow, and that’s not good! Body lotions, perfumes, deodorants and cosmetics are absorbed through the skin…after years, how much do you think you might have absorbed? Maybe you work in an industry, where you are exposed to fumes or chemicals. It is cumulative (it adds up).
Our bodies make waste products in every cell of our being. The waste products, acids or acidic, find their way to our Lymphatic System and are carried out. When we are not properly cleansing internally, acids build up….and Cancer finds a home; often, Breast Cancers are spread through the Lymphatic System to the Lymph nodes. Some foods are acidic and others are alkaline. The bodies ph is 7.35-7.45, and it fluctuates between them. Alkaline is prefered over Acidic. Most of the undesirable foods are acidic, and contribute to an imbalance in your ph levels.
So what helps? Oddly, spicy foods are recommended. Exercise. Circulation. And proper nutrition. You want your Lymphatic System to work! so your Immune System functions in peak performance. If it is clogged, you get sick…and not just sick, but diseased. Sometimes, intense turn-arounds can be achieved by cleansing and detoxifying, encouraging the bodies natural defenses to work again. Maybe, if nutrition therapy (a healthy lifestyle) was practiced from the start, before it’s needed…many illnesses could be avoided.
