Feeling Tired and Sluggish? Your Lymph Could Be Clogged.

Feeling Tired and Sluggish? Your Lymph Could Be Clogged.

24/08/2021 Blog

The lymphatic system is a vital part of our circulatory and immune system that is responsible for removing toxins, wastes and excess fluid as well as promoting the movement of white blood cells around the body to fight infections. Unlike the circulatory system, where the heart pumps blood around the body, the lymphatic system only moves in one direction — upwards. If the movement of lymph flow becomes stagnant, the lymphatic system can become clogged.

Excessive toxins in the body and overexposure to environmental toxins are often the main causes of a clogged lymph system. However, poor diet, dehydration, infections, stress, emotional trauma, lack of sleep and lack of movement can also slow down or stop the lymph flow.

A clogged lymphatic system can lead to lymphedema, a condition that causes swelling in the arms and legs. Toxins accumulated in the system affect the functioning of the cells, causing dysfunction and illness in the body. Moreover, a congested lymph system can also cause inflammation and autoimmune conditions.

What are the symptoms of a sluggish lymph system?

If the lymphatic system is compromised, the immune system is compromised. There are various reasons for a sluggish lymphatic system. And each reason can bring about its own different symptoms.

The most common symptoms may include:

  • Swelling in the fingers
  • Stiff and sore body
  • Cold hands and feet
  • Sinus infections
  • Frequent colds and flu
  • Weakened immunity
  • Brain fog
  • Depression
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Bloating
  • Weight gain
  • Allergies
  • Food sensitivities
  • Digestive issues
  • Dry or itchy skin
  • Enlarged lymph nodes
  • Unexplained injury or illness
  • Parasites
  • Constipation

Benefits of a Lymphatic Draining Massage

Clean diet, regular exercise, adequate sleep, hydration, and stress management are all important components of maintaining a good lymphatic flow. But often, these alone are not enough. Adding lymphatic drainage massage (LDM) to your health regimen can help you restore and maintain your health.

Lymphatic drainage massage, or manual lymphatic drainage, is a type of soothing massage that promotes the movement of lymph fluids around the body. It uses gentle pressures to aid this movement. It helps to improve lymph movement capacity, redirect lymph flow towards the collateral vessels and mobilize excess lymph fluid. The movement of these fluids also helps to remove wastes and toxins from bodily tissues.

LDM offers many benefits for the body:

  • Balanced fluid levels in the body
  • Responding to viruses and bacteria
  • Elimination of cancer cells
  • Removal of cell by-products that can confuse the body and create inflammation or diseases
