The Lymphatic Secret to Healthy Weight Loss
New research reveals 80% of overweight women have sluggish lymphatic systems.
Excess weight is often not fat but a stagnant overloaded lymphatic system trapping toxins and excess fluids in the body. This toxic internal environment can result in inflammation, bloating and unexplained weight gain.
The lymph channels are responsible for the body's drainage and purification. If this magnificent and complex network is filtering and functioning properly toxins and excess fluids can be away from the cells and out of the body. When stagnation occurs, trapped fluids can cause bloating and bloated tissue can result in swelling up to two dress sizes. This can be the difference of an extra 10 to 15 pounds.
Link Between Lymphatic Stagnation and Excess Weight
Studies have shown that lymphatic drainage can push 78% of stagnant lymph back into circulation, making it a critical adjunct to exercise and healthy lifestyle for lasting weight loss. Electro lymphatic therapy will assist and amplify the effects of lymphatic drainage, reducing the time and complexity of the therapy. Electro lymphatic therapy has been found to be up to 8 times more effective at clearing lymphatic stagnation than manual lymphatic drainage. The lymphatic system is the filter and purification system of the body. A decrease in proper lymph drainage can cause fluids that normally carry away waste to become trapped causing stagnation, bloating, inflammation and weight gain. Bloated tissues can prevent cells from properly absorbing nutrients and oxygen. As cells begin to starve for nourishment, food craving and hunger can set in. Without adequate oxygen to ignite the metabolic process, fewer calories are burned and less energy is produced. Congested lymph can also interfere with thyroid function necessary to metabolize and release stored fat.
Lymphatic drainage is critical in addressing a condition called solid bloat. Solid bloat are minute layers of dehydrated stagnant lymph, old blood and cellular debris. Solid bloat can appear as fat and tends not to respond to exercise and dieting. Solid bloats can accumulate all over the body but primarily tends to settle around the abdominal area due to the high concentration of lymph nodes, or filters, in this area. This condition can appear as abdominal bloating, love handles, cellulite and unexplained weight gain.
Lymphatic drainage has been found to increase the volume of lymph flow as much as 20 times, reducing the build up of fluid retention and supporting the body as it strives to maintain it's natural alkalinity and ideal weight.
