7 Natural Ways To Help Detox Your Lymphatic System


The lymphatic system, or lymph system as it is also called, is a system made up of glands, lymph nodes, the spleen, thymus gland and tonsils. Lymphatic system is vital for both tissue repair and controlling inflammation in most organs of the human body. The improper drainage of the lymphatic system, results in an impaired immune system, or even tumors in the lymph nodes.

Detoxing your body is easy as long as you know ways to tap into your lymphatic system. A healthy glow comes from the inside out. Even the fluid in the eyes is lymphatic fluid. The cleaner your are inside, the brighter and clearer your eyes will be.

7 Natural Ways To Help Detox Your Lymphatic System

Avoid soda

Trash the color-laden sports-drink, and drop the sugary fruit “juices” that are more sugar than fruit. These sugar, color, and preservative-laden beverages add to the already overloaded work your lymph system must handle.

Drink Water

Your body needs water to stay hydrated to keep your lymph fluid flowing properly. A good rule of thumb is to drink 6 to 8 glasses of filtered or purified water a day and ditch sodas, sport drinks, and commercially available sugar-laden fruit juices.

Herbal Teas

Certain herbs such as astragalus, echinacea, goldenseal, pokeroot, or wild indigo root have the proven ability to help cleanse the lymphatic system and can be drunk regularly to help with the detox process.

Avoid Nylon & Polyester Clothes

Opt for all natural fibers that allow the skin to breathe, such as cotton, hemp, wool, or silk.

Castor Oil

just apply a castor oil pack to the lower abdomen. Take a cotton cloth folded in several layers and cold-pressed oil castor oil. Saturate the cloth in oil and apply it to the skin. You can leave it on overnight. The castor oil pack will increase circulation of lymphatic fluids, reduce inflammation and improve your digestive system.

Breathe Deeply

Breathe not only into your chest, but down into your belly. It will help you remain more in a yogi-like status, calmer and less reactive, and deeper breathing will also help your lymph fluids stay moving.

Nuts and Seeds

Eat raw, unsalted nuts and seeds to power up your lymph with adequate fatty acids. They include: walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, macadamias, Brazil nuts, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds.
