It may only be known to a few, but the human body, the most sophisticated thing known to the universe, innately heals and self-regulates. One of the key body systems that takes a huge part in making sure we have healthy circulation is our sewerage system or popularly known as the lymphatic system.
What Does The Lymphatic System Do?
Your lymphatic system is the cornerstone and the most important system in your body. It maintains the body’s fluid balance and defends your body against foreign invaders and infections. It consists of lymph fluid, lymph nodes, vessels, glands and organs that all work together.
Not only is this your sewerage system, but it is also your immune system and how your body transports immune cells.
Bodily Traffic Jams
I like to describe the lymphatic system as the body’s ‘super highway’. Why? Because this giant network of lymphatic vessels and nodes acts like a super drainage and filtration system – thus a need for this highway to flow like a clear, clean river.
Imagine having a party, inviting some girlfriends over and one of them pops their tampons down the toilet. I’m pretty sure you have an idea of what will happen. Next thing you know, you go outside and there’s literally crap all over the backyard.
Like your sewer system, when it gets clogged up with waste, it becomes more like a sludge creek. The lymph nodes are unable to filter waste and all of your internal waste just sits in your tissues, muscles, and cells causing pain and inflammation. As Time Magazine reported back in 2005, inflammation is the precursor to heart’s disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s and more!
Why Do Traffic Jams Happen
What most people do not realise is that Australia is one of the top 10 countries in the world for agricultural chemical use and is in the top 10 for pharmaceutical spending – and these rely on petrochemicals. It is a mining country that has brought a lot of heavy metal toxicity to our water and air.
Bottom Line? Chemicals And Toxins
Where do these toxins come from? Literally, everywhere. From our food and water intake to the beauty and cleaning products we use. Our childhood and lifestyle contribute a lot too.
It is quite scary when you think about how many chemicals our poor bodies are exposed to on a daily basis (at least 48,000 chemicals, that is). And guess what has to deal with this and try to clear it out? The lymphatics.
Traffic Jam Signals
Simple things like poor sleep – waking up every day at one o’clock in the morning without fail is a sign that your liver is overworked. Weight gain or perhaps fatigue or crankiness – just waking up not feeling like you’ve slept.
Other Things We Need To Keep An Eye Out For:
- brain fog
- bloating and passing gas
- burning skin
- puffiness, oedema
- scaly, rough skin
- memory problems
- muscle spasms
All of these are signs that your internal sewerage system is blocked. You get sick all the time, which may eventually lead to long-term signs like autoimmune disorders, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, and neurological disorders – the list is almost endless.
Taking Control And Doing Something
In my experience, not that many people know about the importance of the lymphatic system or its role in health. It is not something that is covered greatly in medical or nursing schools, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing that can be done.
So I’ve Put Together 3 Things That You Can Do To Clean It Out:
Stop The Drip: reduce your chemical toxins exposure
I’d like to use the bucket analogy here. Every time you get exposed to a chemical, there’s going to be that little drip in a bucket. When you wake up in the morning, shower and eat your breakfast, there are chemicals, which mean additional drips. And as you go on with your day, that bucket might already be full, overflow and your body may be unable to deal with it.
So, take some time to go through the things you use and try to go as chemical-free as possible.
Reset The Body: do an ANF Therapy Lymphatic and Gut overhaul
Amino Neuro Frequency (ANF) Therapy works to reset the frequencies within the body to assist in the removal of inflammation and improve lymphatic flow and liver function. It helps by working directly on nerve cells so that normal functioning can return and the body starts its self-healing process like it is designed to do.
Movement and breathing exercises can get the lymphatics pumping and helps unclog the highway. Walking, dancing, yodelling or singing are just a few examples that help the lymphatics get more flow. And they’re definitely fun too!
There’s so much you can do but basically look after your lymphatic system because without it functioning, you won’t function.
What will you choose to do to care for your lymphatic system?
About The Author
With over 25 years’ experience in the healthcare industry, Claire has seen the best and worst of it (she believes the healthcare system itself is sick). Healthcare today is focused on symptom management with a ‘cut and drug’ approach (i.e. – surgeons cut the pain out, BIG Pharma masks any pain that remains). Claire strongly believes this focus needs to shift to treating the true cause of the problem and empower people to do the best for their body and health.
Claire became a Clinical leader in the Victorian healthcare system and furthered studies in radiology, gastroenterology, liver transplantation, orthopaedics, nurse and bed management with a strong focus on patient advocacy.
Over time, she witnessed more of the adverse effects that a ‘cut and drug’ approach had on the patients in her care. Her focus then became on finding a better solution.
In 2017, she found it – ANF (Amino Neuro Frequency) Therapy medical devices and dedicated the next two years to become Oceania’s first fully qualified ANF Practitioner. She established a holistic clinic to treat Clients with this specialty technology as well as an academy to train other healthcare Practitioners the advanced skills to apply ANF therapy to their patients.”
