Lymphatic System Disorders

http://dherbs.com/images/dherbs400x400.jpg
The lymphatic system is part of the body's immune system. It consists of nodes, vessels and fluid. Lymph appears in every other body system, so lymphatic disorders can impact the health of other organs.

Lymph node problems

When the lymph nodes become clogged, they cannot release toxins from the body so toxins stay trapped in the body.

Because the area under the mouth (chin area) contains lymph nodes, this is an area that can be greatly affected, as the body will use this area to expel toxins. This is what the lymph nodes are for in addition to filtering.

It's also believed that antiperspirants and deodorants can clog lymph nodes, creating health issues. Read our article entitled "Beware of Deodorants and Antiperspirants" for more information on this subject matter.

Common Lymphatic Disorders

Hodgkin's Disease/Hodgkin's Lymphoma

This is a type of cancer of the lymphatic system. It can start almost any where in the body. It's believed to be caused by HIV, Epstein-Barr Syndrome, age and family history. Symptoms include weight loss, fever, swollen lymph nodes, night sweats, itchy skin, fatigue, chest pain, coughing and/or trouble swallowing.

Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma

Lymphoma is a usually malignant cancer. It's caused by the body producing too many abnormal white blood cells. It is not the same as Hodgkin's Disease. Symptoms usually include painless, enlarged lymph node or nodes in the neck, weakness, fever, weight loss, and anemia.

Lymphadentis Lymphadentis is an infection of the lymph nodes usually caused by a virus, bacteria or fungi. Symptoms include redness and/or swelling around the lymph node.

Lymphangitis

Lymphangitis is an inflammation of the lymph vessels. Symptoms usually include swelling, redness, warmth, pain and/or red streaking around the affected area.

Lymphedema

Lymphedema is the chronic pooling of lymph fluid in the tissue. It usually starts in the feet or lower legs. It's also a side-effect of some surgical procedures.

Lymphocytosis

Lymphocytosis is a high lymphocyte count. It can be caused by an infection, blood cancer, lymphoma, or autoimmune disorders that are accompanied by chronic swelling.

Healing Lymphatic System Disorders Naturally

All vices should be cut out (which is actually common sense). No smoking (anything, especially cigarettes), no alcohol, and no drugs (legal or illegal)

Abstain from use of all unhealthy personal hygiene and body care products, i.e. commercial brand soaps, lotions, shampoos, conditioners, antiperspirants and deodorants, cologne and perfumes, female sanitary pads and napkins, etc.

Massage

Lymphatic drainage massage therapy is very helpful in reversing lymphatic disorders, especially lymph stagnation which is common in many people due to leading sedentary lifestyles. Lymphatic massage incorporates deep tissue cleansing as well due to the pressure used. If you are dealing with a lymphatic issue, make sure you consistently incorporate lymphatic and/or deep tissue massage in your healing regimen.

Exercise

Exercise is very important because unlike the blood that has two pumps (the heart and the lungs) to cause it to circulate ten times every one minute, the lymph does not have a pump so your movement is necessary and vital for proper lymphatic circulation. Whereas the blood circulates ten times a minute, the lymph only circulates one time per day and that's if your lymphatic system is not sluggish and you aren't sedentary.

Herbs

Good lymphatic herbs include, but are not limited to:
  • Octillo
  • Yellow Dock Root
  • Lobelia
  • Goldenseal Root
  • Black Walnut
  • Echinacea Root
  • Wild Indigo Root
  • Stone Root
  • Mullein Leaf
  • Manjistha
  • Chaparral
  • Dandelion Root, and
  • Oregon Grape
Aromatherapy

Beneficial essential oils that can be sued to improve lymphatic circulation include:
  • Winter Savory and
  • Labrador Tea
A carrier oil (i.e. olive, sweet almond, coconut, etc.) can be applied to the skin and a few drops (2-3 drops) of these essential oils applied to the congested lymphatic area and gently stroked in the direction of the lymph (downward).

Crystals and Gemstones

Crystals that can be used for lymphatic improvement and remedies include:
  • Pink Chalcedony
  • Blue Lace Agate
  • Bloodstone
  • Aquamarine
  • Moss Agate
  • Amethyst
  • Jet
Crystals can be used as tools to help move the lymph (during massage) or placed over major lymphatic area that will help ease lymphatic flow and circulation.

The crystals can also be used in elixir form and drank daily (1-2 ounces).

Dietary Intervention

To heal from any degenerative disease or to facilitate the healing, it is best to abstain from eating meat, dairy products, eggs, refined grains and starches, processed foods (or cooked foods); sugar, salt, white distilled vinegar; effervescent beverages (soda pop, champagne, and anything else with carbonated water); coffee, lattes, commercial juices, alcoholic beverages (beer, wine, etc.) and tap water just to name a few of the things that should be avoided.

The best things to eat would be raw, organic foods such as fruit, vegetables, seeds, and nuts and very, very little grains (those that are alkaline in nature).

If you decide to eat cooked/processed foods, they should be vegan (non-meat and non-dairy; no eggs) and should only be eaten 2-3 days per week.

The best water to drink is alkaline water followed by distilled water (which is best to drink only while detoxing). One should even consider investing in an alkaline water machine (ionizer and filter) that can cost between $500.00 and $4,000.00.

How To Save $100 and Save The Planet From Deforestation

Deforestation is a HUGE problem that affects every single living being on this planet. It is estimated that about 36 football fields of forest are cleared every minute! The effect of chopping, bulldozing, and burning these forests is felt on a global scale, as this process is responsible for about 20 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. This process is also largely detrimental to the animals that call these forests home. With every forest clearing, we lose about 135 different species of plants, animals, and insects.

While deforestation may seem like a problem that is just too big for you to make a difference, that is simply not true. By and large, deforestation is driven by consumers. Palm oil and paper production rank among the top drivers of deforestation. So while it is not good that many of the products we buy and use everyday are inadvertently funding deforestation, there is a lot that you can do to help end this disaster.

12 Million Misdiagnoses Occur Yearly in U.S.

The researchers caution that since their study likely did not capture all types of diagnosis errors that the true rate of misdiagnoses could be much higher.

At least one in 20 U.S. adults, or 12 million people yearly, may be misdiagnosed when they go to see their doctors, a new study suggests.

What's more, researchers estimated that about half of these diagnosis errors could lead to serious harm, such as when doctors fail to follow up on "red flags" for cancer in patients who are ultimately diagnosed with the condition.
