Lymphatic drainage

The Lymphatic System is the sewage system of the body. Ducts from the tissue spaces between the cells drain the fluid through the lymph nodes back to the circulating blood. The lymph nodes are similar to sewage farms, filtering and detoxifying the fluid before recycling it. They also perform the further function of producing antibodies against foreign protein as found in invading bacteria or viruses carried to them from the tissue spaces. The Tonsils, Adenoids, and Appendix are all part of the lymphatic system.

One of the most common complaints is the recurrent streptococcal throat infection.

Consideration of other chronic infections shows that in their specific drainage areas a similar condition of enlarged and hard lymph nodes occurs. E.g. enlarged cervical (neck) nodes with chronic sinusitis and recurrent loss of voice. Enlarged ileac (abdominal) nodes with chronic cystitis and enlarged chest lymph nodes with chronic bronchitis.

This is further borne out by the fact that these nodes can be restored to normal function by treatment forcing fluid through them and by breaking up the debris in them by means of electrical treatment and massage. As the nodes clinically improve so, shortly afterwards, does the state of the infection and patient

Treatment includes Interx electrical stimulation, Shiatsu, Reflexology and nutritional advice.
