Go With the Flow: The Lymphatic System

361

Life tends to be easier when work, daily activities, relationships, family and fun effortlessly flows together. When your daily routine and flow is disrupted, the rest of your day can be disorganized and stressful. This concept can be applied to the body as well.

One part of the circulatory system that has huge implications on health and wellness is the lymphatic system.

In the past, traditional modern medicine has had a tendency to overlook the lymphatic system. More recently, the functions of this system as well as its relation to health and wellness has made the lymphatic system the topic of more medical attention and research.

The lymphatic system is a network of organs, vessels, ducts and nodes that transport lymph, a clear white plasma fluid. The main functions of the lymphatic system are to recycle blood plasma and to protect the body from disease.

In essence, the lymphatic system acts as the sewage treatment plant for the body. It maintains a healthy balance of fresh blood with oxygen in your body as well as ridding the body of unhealthy acids. This process is very important in maintaining a healthy immune response, which contributes to the overall health of the body.

A healthy lymphatic system improves quality of sleep, promotes healthy body weight and energy production, detoxifies the body and contributes to better mental and cognitive functions.

When the lymphatic system is not working at its full potential, your overall heath can suffer. Blockages in the lymphatic system cause the body to become filled with acid waste, fluid and excess proteins. This can lead to a myriad of health problems such as disease, stress and pain.

A healthy lymphatic system is a major component to overall health. As more and more people recognize this, centers that promote a healthy lymphatic system are popping up around the country. Clinics such as John Ossipinsky’s Lymphatic Wellness Center in Scottsdale, Ariz. are seeing an increase in traffic as people become more aware of the importance the lymphatic system plays in overall health.

These health centers use a variety of techniques to ensure the lymphatic system is flowing properly and in a way that promotes a healthy body and state of mind.
