Do you know what your "Lymphatic System" is?
Today we're going to talk about what I think is one of the most important parts of the human body. And that would be the "Lymphatic System".
In the U.S, . . . medical professionals don't check our "Lymphatic System" until we have a disease that they think has affected this system. For example . . . when I was diagnosed with cancer 11 years ago . . . every 3 months I would have my blood tested and they would feel for swollen lymph nodes (which are part of the lymphatic system). But not once did anyone talk about or try to educate me on the function of or the importance of the Lymphatic system for optimal health.
So I'm here to give you that information . . .
The "Lymphatic System" is made up of channels and vessels that run along side of our veins and carry a clear liquid called "lymph". Now the job of the lymph and this system is to eliminate toxic by-products from the body.
This system is a free-flowing system unlike the blood system. Blood only moves through the body if the heart is "pumping" that blood. Where as, lymph is free-flowing. This free-flow system "only" needs "gravity" to make the lymph completely move.
BUT . . . this gravity isn't like the Isaac Newton gravity. You know . . . an apple falling from the tree. This system needs G-Force (that's forced gravity) to move the lymph through the body to flush out toxins. And if we can't flush out toxins . . . we end up with weight issues, disease and CANCER!
Now, the major parts of the lymph tissue are located in the bone marrow, spleen, thymus gland, lymph nodes, adenoids and the tonsils. With the heart, lungs, intestines, liver and skin also contain lymph tissue. That's what this system is for . . . How can this "not" me a top priority?
Okay . . . so our blood flows in all direction easily due to the heart pumping it, BUT "lymph" naturally "only" flows uphill. It starts from your fingers and toes and flows toward the heart. That it!!!!! So how does this "lymph" get back down to the fingers and toes?
Well . . . that would be "forced gravity". To complete the full motion of "lymph" though the body . . . we must complete this "full cycle". And how do we do that? FORCED MOVEMENT!
So why isn't regular gravity enough to accomplish this mission? Well, decades and generations past . . it was. We were more active on a daily basis. But in today's society, we find ourselves getting up in the morning, sitting for breakfast with our cup of coffee that's starting our day and body with an increase in the stress hormone "Cortisol", then sitting in our car to drive to work. then sitting at work behind a desk, sitting to drive back home at the end of the day, sitt
