Lymphatic Drainage

Your cells have fluid in them, they are surrounded and immersed in fluid which is called interstitial or intercellular fluid.  Some of this fluid is carried by your blood supply but the rest is picked up the lymphatic system.

Lymph is what you get after you injure an area of the body such as a cut on your hand.  Initially red blood will ooze out then the fluid becomes clear and colorless (this is lymph minus the red platelets) and eventually a scab will form.

Lymph is mostly water, lipids (fats), proteins, lymphocytes, enzymes, minerals, hormones, toxins, bacteria, and cellular debris etc.  It is present everywhere in the body, except where there is no blood vascularization such as the lens of the eye, epidermis (the skin) and cartilage found on the ends of bones, joints and the nose.

The lymphatic system is comprised of feather fine capillaries, collectors, lymph trunks/ducts, cisterna chyli and thoracic duct.  It is a secondary pathway back to the heart and transports fluid to the lymph nodes.  Lymph nodes have various functions:

  • They act as filtration and purification stations for the lymph circulation.
  • They capture and destroy toxins of the body.
  • They concentrate the lymph, reabsorbing about 40% of the liquids present in lymph.
  • They produce lymphocytes (your body’s own immune defense) and carries white blood cells to wherever they’re needed.

So accelerating the movement of lymph cleanses and detoxifies the body.  It allows the recapture of proteins that have leaked from the blood circulation.  One hundred grams can escape which is about 50% of protein circulation in the blood plasma and if NOT recovered by the lymphatic system, massive swelling and death could occur within 24 hours.
