Detox Your Lymphatic System

Like Cinderella who had to clean up all the messes for her stepsisters, the lymphatic system must clean up messes made by nearly all other systems of the body.  The lymphatic system is usually regarded as a lesser system than the circulatory system, at least in this country, but not in the Far East and Europe.

Keeping your lymphatic system healthy is actually crucial in your ability to heal and prevent disease. It’s a supportive detoxification system that works with the immune, digestion, and nervous systems.  Many holistic health care professionals believe a toxic lymphatic system is an underlying contributor to everything from cellulite to cancer. Indeed, cancer often metastasizes through the lymphatic system. This system has multiple purposes.  Two important functions include bathing cells with nutrients and carrying away waste.

In order to cleanse the lymphatic system, you need breath and movement. That’s why Pilates is especially helpful with its strong emphasis on breathing while moving.  This system has no pump, unlike the circulatory system, which has the heart to pump blood. Your lymphatic system relies on movement. Most of us lead very sedentary lives. This is a setup for stagnant lymph. Should your lymph system become blocked or congested because of illness, surgery, toxicity, or too little activity, your congested lymph fluid can back up.

This can contribute to swelling, joint pain, cellulite, nausea, poor immune function, and fatigue. Cancer cells or mutated cells move through the lymph fluid, where they are targeted and destroyed in the lymph nodes if your system is up for the task. But if the lymph fluid is congested and toxic, your body may store stagnant lymph in nodes for a long period of time. This can be serious. Cancer can develop. 

Healthy lymph should be clear to pale white. When this system clogs up and gets thick, you can experience unpleasant symptoms.

Symptoms of a Toxic Lymph System

  • allergies and food sensitivities
  • frequent colds and flu
  • joint pain and back pain
  • headaches and migraines
  • menstrual cramps
  • arthritis
  • fibrocystic breasts and breast tenderness

  • mood swings and depression

  • skin breakouts and acne
  • cellulite
  • heaviness in your abdomen

Want to streamline your thighs?  Cellulite is a trap of too many fat cells, lymph fluid, and toxins.  You can get rid of these pockets of fat through movement, detoxification, massage of those areas, and the Swing Machine, also known as the Lymphasizer. Get my e-book The Cellulite Cure.

Here is what you can do:

Eat a Clean Diet

If you eat primarily organic food, avoid pesticides as much as possible, avoid junk food and fast food, and choose grass-fed, free-range animal products that have not been pumped full of hormones and antibiotics and fed pesticide sprayed food, you’ll lessen the toxic burden of your body.

Detox Your Body

You want to detox your colon, liver and gallbladder along with your lymphatic system.  The 5-Day Juice Fast can do wonders for detoxing.  Also, the 30-Day Detox is very thorough. This gives your body a comprehensive cleansing. You can also get the Omni Cleanse Kit to go with it.

Get Your Lymph Moving

There are only two ways to move the lymph along its channels:  breathing and movement.  Exercise is a must.  Find what you love and do it faithfully—walk, aerobics, combo exercise classes, pilates, swimming, Zumba—whatever it is, get moving.


I highly recommend the Lymphasizer. It was designed by a Japanese doctor to move the body like a fish moves through water. It definitely moves the lymph.  I’ve seen this firsthand as a large amount of lymph was released from my body once after spending about 25 minutes on the Lymphasizer. I saw a large number of lymph bubbles in my foot detox bath. And it’s so easy.  You just lie on the floor with your feet in the grooves and it does the rest.


Spend time in a sauna frequently. Sweating helps detoxify the body and supports the lymphatic system.

Emotional Detox

Feeling stuck or unable to express how you feel can impact the lymphatic system.  Speak up!  Your health may depend on it.

Foods That Help Support Lymph Movement

Think red:  berries, pomegranate, cherries, cranberries, watermelon, and beets all support healthy lymphatic flow.  Get my 30-Day Detox and make the Lymph Node Detox Soup.
