Wellness Components Professional Healthcare:
Lymph: The Missing Factor - To Drain or Not To Drain?
May 7, 2003

Lymphatic Drainage can seem irrelevant to some. After all, if we go to the bathroom, isn't water and lymph moving? Even going to the bathroom often is not to be confused with a free flowing lymphatic system.

A histamine-like response is not unusual in an illness situation. Our body is designed to keep excess fluid with its irritants away from our vital organs.

The problem is that the fluid ends up in the arms, ankles, pillows around the knees, etc. For some, this is worse than the injury or disease. But it temporarily keeps the front line localized.

Lymphatic congestion will gradually move your focal point in the wrong direction. Congestion means limited or zero circulation. Dead cells and other "stuff" can create a physical blockage in the lymphatic lines.

Blindly ignoring such an obvious body signal as edema is ridiculous. So with few exceptions, drainage wins. However, we need to move lymph in the right direction at a pace the body can tolerate.

We must find out what is causing the excess lymph build-up or we end up with the ultimate "government job": Drain the lymph and wait for more to build up. Then drain it again, repeating ad nauseum.

What causes this maddening cycle and how can we fight against it? We will talk about this in Parts III and IV.
