The Lymphatic System is crucial to our overall health and well-being. It is a network of tissues and organs that help rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. The primary function of the lymphatic system is to transport lymph, a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells, throughout the body.
The lymphatic system primarily consists of lymphatic vessels, which are similar to the veins and capillaries of the circulatory system. The vessels are connected to lymph nodes, where the lymph is filtered. There are hundreds of lymph nodes in the human body. They are located deep inside the body, such as around the lungs and heart, or closer to the surface, such as under the arm or groin. The lymph nodes are found from the head to around the knee area. The tonsils, adenoids, spleen and thymus are also part of the lymphatic system.
Our bodies contain 50% more lymphatic fluid than blood, which proves just how critical it is to have this fluid cleansed of toxins.
Every body has between 600-625 lymph nodes in it.
There are four ways that our body can release the toxic overload inside of them:
1. Lungs - 70% of the fluid that leaves our body actually leaves through our lungs. Whether it is thru talking, sneezing or coughing.
2. Skin - Our largest organ is the skin and it is one of the vital ways our body detoxes. The stronger our body odor is when we sweat is a sign of how toxic we are.
3. Bowels - Two thirds of our lymph nodes are in our digestive track. It is very important to have at least 2-3 good bowel movements per day. The stronger smelling your bowel movements are is another sign of toxicity.
4. Kidneys - We should be drinking at least 50% of our body weight in ounces of water per day. Beer, pop, wine, tea and coffee are all diuretics and will cause us to become dehydrated. Remembering to ingest the proper amount of water each day is of vital importance. Your body should never "feel" thirsty, this is actually a sign of dehydration. Headaches are another sign.
Like filters on a car, our lymph nodes are the filters in our body that collect the waste in our lymphatic fluid that has been collected throughout the body. Our lymphatic fluid is our internal oil. Since we can't change out our filters (lymph nodes), we use the Lymphstar Pro to do the work. The sound harmonics and vibration that the machine puts out helps to loosen the congestion in our system therefore allowing the body to rid itself of the toxins that can make us sick.

We can become toxic from a variety of different things. Everything from tight fitting clothes, lack of exercise, the foods we eat and even the air we breathe can cause toxicity.
Stress is also the number one inhibitor of our immune system. The emotional and daily baggage we carry with us each day can have a physical impact on our bodies. Lymphatic drainage with the Lymphstar Pro will assist the body in relieving a number of symptoms that cause this discomfort.
