Lymphatic drainage for natural healing: When do you have time to deal with this?

Updated: Sep 16, 2023

What adverse effects happen when there is a clog in any of the drains in your home? An unpleasant odor arises, water too quickly fills the sink basin, the toilet doesn’t flush, particles such as food, hair and bacteria become stagnant in the drain, and eventually the source of the problem is unclogged and water and other substances it carries flow freely through the pipes again.

A single stream of cold water wakes you up in the middle of the night repeatedly plunging into the puddle in the middle of your bedroom floor. You sigh at the soaked drywall above you, place a bucket directly underneath the leak and crawl back into bed. The water keeps leaking from the pipes, soaking the drywall. But you have a bucket to catch the water.

Did you stop the water and correct the problem?

Did you investigate all the root cause of the problem?


No because you didn’t want to be bothered. It wasn’t important at the moment and then life happens with work, kids, aging parents, vacationing, etc. and you forget all about it.

Sometimes the homeowner just changes the drywall and feels that takes care of the water dripping issue.

Out of sight out of mind. I don’t have time for this.

But several months later, or three years later, that drywall collapses in the middle of the night.

Now there’s a problem! Not only is there mold growing in the house for months or even years because of that leak, now there’s structural damage. Will this get attention of the homeowner to remedy the problem?

You bet.

This is what is happening to your body. This is the vessel you have your entire life! Lymphatic drainage allows for natural healing.

Are you in tune with cues of discomfort and ignoring it, did you take a few steps to help the “problem” or the symptom? Did you find out the root cause of the problem? Did you sweep it off and think “I don’t have time for this right now?”

Well, when do you have time to deal with this?

Rather than shutting off the water and finding the source of the issue, we let pain drip through our daily lives… affecting every single action we take. When fixing your house, you want a meticulous approach, one that looks closely to find the problem and address it at the source. When it comes to fixing you, the same is true. Understanding how the body works and why pain occurs can help you locate the root cause and shut it off at the source. Manual lymphatic drainage allows for natural healing and supports anti-aging.

The lymphatic system is analogous to the drains in your home.

Just like your pipes, the lymphatic system can become congested and lead to adverse health reactions including soreness of breast, fatigue, eczema and chronic skin problems, cold limbs, bloating, headaches, body rigidity, and weakened immunity

Regularly cleaning your drains to maintain their function is a good strategy to preventing a clog in a pipe. However, effectively purifying your lymphatic system is essential to your health and well-being.

Unlike water and drain pipes that can be replaced, your body can’t be – this is the vessel you have for life.

The lymphatic system is a crucial part of your body's ability to fight off infection and viruses. It's a key player in the immune system that functions by circulating lymphatic fluid through a series of lymph vessels all throughout your body. This fluid gathers up anything foreign, such as viruses and bacteria from your body tissues and flushes them to your lymph nodes, where immune cells attack whatever isn't helping your body.
