The lymphatic system is just now starting to be discussed more and also becoming more understood than it has in the past. This system is vital to keeping our bodies healthy and energetic. It's job is to clean and protect the body.
Why is the lymphatic system so important to the human body? It acts as our septic system. It provides not only protection for our cells but serves to remove our wastes as well. Our cells feed off of what we put into our bodies. They also eliminate waste just like we do. Where does all of the waste go that our cells excrete? The metabolized waste goes into the lymphatic system! What happens when our body is not able to remove that waste from the lymphatic system? It stays in our system creating acidosis and inflammation, which are the true drivers disease.
The lymphatic system is the most neglected part of the human body. It consists of the following: lymph fluid, lymph vessels, lymph nodes, spleen, and the thymus gland. The lymph fluid is a translucent, alkaline fluid that flows between our cells (interstitial fluid) to the venous blood supply via the lymph vessels. The fluid acts as the water that carries the wastes from the cells to the trash.
Unlike the blood, which has the heart to pump it through the body, the lymph fluid can remain quite stagnant and this can create real problems for the body as the cellular waste begin to add up and create conditions of acidosis and inflammation. There are only a few methods on how to best move the lymph system:
The kidneys are the second part of this equation. The kidneys are the main elimination organ in our body. They filter out the waste from our lymphatic system. If our kidneys are not filtering properly than we are not eliminating the waste from our body. This is when acidosis sets in. We become overly acidic, inflammation sets in (main driver of disease), and we develop symptoms of disease.
We focus on moving the lymph system and getting the kidneys filtering. Once the kidneys begin to filter we can then start detoxing the body and removing the waste from the body.
Alkalizing the body is the key to proper lymphatic movement and nourishing the trillions of cells and interstitial fluid we have within it.
