An Overview of the Lymphatic System

Unfortunately, a lot of health practitioners overlook the very important role the body’s Lymphatic System plays in the prevention of illness and in preserving our health. This system is probably the most underrated circulatory system in the entire healthcare system.

Lymph Over View

There are several reasons why health experts consider the Lymphatic System a very important bodily system. First and foremost, it is the body’s main waste removal and immune defense system; without it the body suffers or may even die due to internal poisoning caused by a build-up of waste material, pathogens, and toxins in the body. This system consists of over 600 lymph nodes that are ‘collection’ sites and has a hub of collecting channels, which is even more wide-ranging compared to the venous system. The Lymphatic System is mainly responsible for defending the body from pathogens and keeping the body clean and germ-free by transporting disease-killing material to cells and washing away the dead germs, it also the system that carries back protein-packed plasma fluid to the heart. Any blockage to the flow of the Lymph system leaves the body without defense from bacterial, fungal, and viral invasion.

According to medical studies, the body fights bacteria, fungi, and viruses mainly through the Lymphatic System because it is through this system that immunological support cells (i.e., B-Cells, macrophages, lymphocytes, T-Cells, etc.) are sent in to fight pathogens that have entered the body. Over half of the Lymphatic System is made up of plasma protein. It is the primary system for the transport back into the blood of nutrition-packed plasma protein. Any blockage to this system will render the body vulnerable to infections and will prevent cell-nourishing substances from being transport throughout the cells in our body. Consequentially, the germs are left unchecked and continue to grow, our cells and blood are deprived of much-needed nutrition, the immune system becomes weak and infectious diseases are free to wreak havoc in the body.

Lymph nodes become swollen when the Lymphatic System is blocked. The National Institutes of Health under Dr. Fauci recently did an AIDS study showing that when a blockage occurs in the lymphatic system “an environment (more so for the HIV virus) for the growth of pathogens arises. The Lymphatic System turns into a source of infection in which billions of immune-system cells infected with HIV develop that eventually enter the bloodstream that can then infect the other parts of the body. Sometime later, the immune system starts weaken after having to deal with longstanding viral proliferation, and infectious disease then sets in.” According to studies, “compared to blood, ten times as much virus can reside in the Lymphatic System.”

Lymph nodes are found at certain points with lymph vessels. Lymph nodes can be palpated when you press into the crease between the pelvic region and thigh and just below the collarbone under the arms. If you feel small bumps or even pain when you touch these areas, they are an indication of blocked lymph nodes that in turn signifies a mechanical malfunction within the lymphatic system. Lymph tenderness typically occurs in spots shown by dark areas:

The inguinal nodes in men, situated in the groin’s crease between the thigh and genitals, are the main vessels for allowing release of lymph build up (fluid and protein) from the prostate. Women have the axillary nodes, which is found and begins in the armpit and extends downward to the breast, as the main vessel for releasing a build-up of lymph material (fluid and protein) from the breast. In a lot of prostate and breast cancer cases (as well as other cancer conditions), these lymph nodes are oftentimes swollen and too overburdened, making them incapable of expelling lymphatic fluid.

The LBG

Several years of comprehensive clinical research has been done on the issue of lymph flow. This has led to highly effective manual procedures for revitalizing the lymph system. Along with the use of manual lymph drainage procedures, non-invasive LBG technology can help eliminate the build-up of lymphatic fluid naturally, rapidly, and safely.  One of the benefits of LBG is it helps the body attain a free circulation of proteins within the lymphatic system. It also frees up blocked bonded protein in the regions of connective tissue.

Aside from being non-invasive, the LBG is a technology that utilizes extremely low electricity. It produces light photons negatively charged that have frequencies that jibe with the blocked region. This helps cells rectify their imbalanced state and also help them separate themselves from the binding materials that cause blockage and swelling. This frees up waste material within the cell which leads to the material’s rapid delivery to organs responsible for waste disposal. The LBG also boosts the effectiveness of hands-on therapy because the unfettered movement of proteins quickens the healing process. With the rapid elimination of waste material, the body now starts to function well, and daily factors such as body structure, eating habits, mental health, medication, and nutrition can be better evaluated to formulate a successful therapy plan in order to maintain or restore health.

Typical health issues that can be addressed with the use of LBG and lymph massage include: pain, more so if it’s related to soft tissue, breast conditions, sciatica, PMS, fibrocystic disease, diabetes, intestinal syndromes, swelling, arthritis, bursitis, chronic edema, and other conditions related to bruising, inflammation, bruising, pre-surgical preparation and postsurgical recuperation.
