3 Ways to Move Lymphatic Fluid for Detoxification

by Jodi Cohen

Lymph essential oil

The lymphatic system is critical for moving metabolic waste, toxins and infections out of the cells via the lymphatic fluid.  The lymphatic system also helps carry nutrients, oxygen, hormones and other healing substances into every cell. Lymph for detoxification is an oil that can be used to help you move toxins out of the body.

Our lymphatic system permeates every part of the body, serving as a complementary system to our circulatory system.  It draws fluid from the cells and carries it through a series of lymphatic ducts and nodes back to the circulatory system, establishing the link between the smallest blood vessels – the capillaries – and the cells.

Lymph for Detoxification

Unfortunately, the lymphatic system doesn’t have a pump and lymphatic fluid can accumulate and stagnate (learn more about the Lymphatic System here).  This stagnation can be due to an overload of acidity, animal protein, gluten, infection, toxins or adhesions of the connective tissue, such as scars.

Lymphatic congestion is at the base of many health problems including:

  • Cellulite or excess water weight
  • Pain, including Fibromyalgia, Back Pain, Joint Pain, Headaches or Migraines
  • Hormonal Imbalance, Thyroid Issues or Infertility
  • Respiratory, Digestive and Skin Issues
  • Skin Diseases
  • Tinnitus
  • Diabetes
  • Irritable Bladder/ Prostate Irritations
  • Sore throat
  • Chronic sinus problems.
  • Earaches, ear infections and Tinnitus
  • Breast swelling and tenderness
  • Metabolic Imbalances
  • Attention Deficit Disorders, Concentration Difficulties

One way to determine if lymphatic circulation is sluggish is to depress the skin on the back of the hand with the thumb. If the skin takes three or more seconds to return to normal color after being depressed, the lymphatics are probably sluggish.

Moving Lymphatic Fluid is Critical to Health

3 Ways to Move Lymphatic Fluid with Essential OilsImproving lymph flow throughout the body is critical to helping the body release toxins deep in the cells.  It’s interesting to note that the lymphatic system works in conjunction with our connective tissue and fascia.  For example, nutrients are transported by the lymphatic fluid through the connective tissue from the capillaries to the cell.

Our connective tissue also serves as a buffer zone for any kind of stress like excessive nutrition, excessive animal protein, toxins and infection leaving the vascular system.  Many of these toxins and microbes are accumulated in the connective tissue. Lymphatic flow can mobilize these toxins and microbes, as well as helping to release emotional and mental trauma stored deep in our tissue.

When our connective tissue and fascia contract – from issues like acidity, infection, inflammation, toxins, scars or unresolved emotional issues conflicts – it impedes both detoxification efforts and ideal provision of nutrients into the cells.

How to Move Lymph for Detoxification

The following Essential Oils in combination with lymphatic massage, can play a critical role in detoxification.

Lymph:  The lymphatic system needs to be functioning optimally in order for toxins to leave the cells and the body.  Congested or stagnant lymphatic movement can impede toxins from draining and leaving the system.  To enhance lymphatic flow and drainage, generously apply Lymph™ around the sides of the neck, under the arm pits and along the bikini line.

Anti-Inflammatory™:  To help relieve contraction and inflammation of the connective tissue and fascia, Anti-Inflammatory™ can be topically applied to the bottoms of the feet, abdomen and other areas of the body where tissue feels tight and contracted.  This blend contains several essential oils known for their anti-inflammatory properties.  It is designed to reduce inflammation and encourage regeneration of damaged or stressed cells and tissues that have been chronically inflamed or acutely inflamed.

 Parasympathetic™: Helps to activate the vagus nerve to trigger the Parasympathetic rest and digest state of the autonomic nervous system.  The vagus nerve travels down both sides of the neck and is most accessible behind the ear lobe on the mastoid bone.  Topically applying Parasympathetic ™ blend on the vagus nerve behind the on the neck can help reset the autonomic nervous system for optimal function, allowing muscles to relax and setting the stage for the optimal detoxification state.
