Exploring Vital Pathways: The Marvels of Lymphatic Drainage

Let’s tune in to the lymphatic system—your body’s VIP trash collection crew, your health janitor, complete with fluid-filled nodes, vessels, glands and organs, whisking away waste and excess fluids from bloodstream, cells and tissues while also serving as a pathway for immune cells to patrol and respond to threats.

Just as rivers and streams nourish and cleanse the land, the lymphatic system does the same for our body, ensuring proper functioning and resilience.

Unlike your bloodstream, lymph fluid lacks a major pump to send it travelling around your body and relies on muscle contractions and breathing. This prompts the transport of cellular waste and harmful substances to lymph nodes, where they are filtered and neutralised by specialised immune cells.

This system is the SAS defence equivalent against heart disease, cancer, allergies, and autoimmune troubles. 

In the ancient world of Ayurvedic medicine it gets the Five Star treatment. But today, we face a chemical onslaught. In January 2023 The Environmental Working Group Survey found that on average, American women put 168 different chemicals daily, and men, 85. 

Chemicals range from perfumes to cleaning products, from cosmetic products to plastic water bottles, much of your everyday life includes exposure to chemicals that can move through air, soil, and water. These are NOT good for your health!

It’s like our bodies are hosting a chemical carnival!

Exploring the pathways of lymphatic drainage opens doors to various therapeutic approaches aimed at boosting its function. Techniques such as manual lymphatic drainage massage, exercise and deep breathing can support the natural flow of lymph, promoting detoxification and immune resilience.

Additionally, practices like yoga and tai chi, which incorporate gentle movements and mindful breathing, can help in lymphatic circulation while fostering overall well-being.

In 1946, DuPont unleashed Teflon, revolutionising kitchens and turning our bodies into unwitting chemical battlegrounds. Now, the PFAS family, including Teflon, lurks not just in cookware and, of all bizarre products, children’s pyjamas, but in 99 per cent of Americans. 

Meet the “forever chemicals”: they’re persistent, like that friend who never leaves the party.

Watch Mark Ruffalo’s Dark Waters (2019) for a front-row seat on how nasty PFAS can be (trailer https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9071322/). When your lymph system gets jammed, utter chaos ensues in your body. 

Your doctor will likely treat the visible symptoms while the real cause remains incognito.

A recent government study estimates nearly half of America’s tap water could contain toxic “forever chemicals” known as PFAS.  That figure should be a resounding ZERO!

Yet, there’s more to keeping your lymph system fit than dodging diseases. Your digestion, immune system and even your nervous system rely on your lymphatic system being in good working order.

One simple way to remove toxins from your body is “bouncing” on a rebounder (mini trampoline). This is so easy to do and gives your lymph system a daily workout. 

The PT Bouncer, the industry standard since the ’80s, took rebounding to the next level. Rebounders existed before this but not with six legs (they had only 5), and thanks to the UK agent’s demand to the manufacturer in Taiwan, the PT Bouncer introduced sturdier mats.

You can find inexpensive rebounders but not all rebounders are created equal and you get what you pay for.

There’s no need for fancy gym memberships or ideal weather conditions. Rebounding is a gravity-defying journey, from zero gravity at the top of each bounce to three times gravity at the bottom of each bounce. 

It’s like a dance party for your cells, keeping them in tip top condition and your lymphatic system in good working order. 

In addition rebounding can….

  • Activate the auto immune system and restore the respiratory system, correcting many related problems.
  • Improve your available energy and joint flexibility.
  • Reduce swollen joints, primary and secondary lymphedema and helps to release Trapped Blood Plasma Proteins (TPP) at cellular level.
  • Level hip heights
  • Adjust and activate the most important bone, the sacrum, and rebuild the body’s most important muscle, the diaphragm.
  • Correct posture also releases emotional traumas.
  • Improve taste, eyesight and hearing.
  • Automatically clean up your Central Nervous System and induce better sleep.

In a world where the focus often falls on high-tech medical interventions, understanding and nurturing the body’s innate healing mechanisms, including lymphatic drainage, offer a holistic approach to health maintenance.

By appreciating the marvels of this vital system, we empower ourselves to take proactive steps in supporting our body’s natural detoxification and immune defence processes, ultimately promoting vitality and longevity.

So choose wisely.  I have no financial interest in recommending the PT Bouncer; it remains, in my opinion the most sturdy option available without over-spending for professional models.

So, bounce on!
