An innovative approach to treating your Lymphatic System

What goes wrong?

Some causes of lymphatic congestion are stress, chronic digestive imbalances, and iodine deficiency.

  • Stress has been identified as a large cause of lymphatic congestion.
  • Chronic digestive imbalances like constipation and diarrhoea due to irritated intestinal villi are classic causes of lymph congestion.  As the majority of the lymph in the body surrounds the gut (Gut Associated Lymphatic Tissues GALT), the quality of the villi are critical for proper lymph flow, detoxification, assimilation and immunity.
  • Lack of movement.  Because it doesn't have its own pump, it relies on movement to work efficiently.
  • An unhealthy diet and lack of hydration.
  • Iodine deficiency can also be a common cause of lymphatic congestion.  Iodine protects us from a toxic environment and supports the lymph at the cellular level.
