10 signs of Lymphatic congestionJuly 24, 2021
The majority of your lymphatic system surrounds your gut, your gut health and the health of the intestinal villi is essential for lymph flow, detoxification and immunity.
The intestinal lymphatics also play a key role in delivering absorbed dietary fats to the liver for processing. When the intestines become inflamed or irritated from chemical additives in food, food allergies, sensitivities or a diet of too many processed foods, the lymphoid tissue can become congested. If your lymphatic system is congested it cannot protect you effectively and makes you prone to infections and disease. Keeping your lymphatic flow smooth and free from lymph congestion is absolutely critical to your health and well being.
Not drinking enough water and lacking physical activity can result in your lymph fluid slowing down. Your lymph system relies on pressure from muscle movement and breathing to move fluids around. Lacking this pressure due to sitting to long or chronic dehydration may slow and congest your lymph system.
Iodine, magnesium and vitamin C are important to lesson the harmful effects of environmental toxins and to support your lymph system in protecting your body.
