Backed Up Lymph Causes a Toxic Environment in the Body

When the lymphatic fluid backs up because it is sticky, congested, or blocked, fluid from the tissues containing waste cannot enter the lymphatic system to be disposed of by the body. 

This backup prevents the cells from getting necessary nutrients.

When this happens, the cells lose metabolic efficiency and can no longer do their job. If enough cells are in this state, degenerative conditions develop and sickness and disease result.

Effective lymphatic drainage is essential for basic tissue detoxification and is a vital part of any healing process. A detoxified body has the power, resistance, and a potential needed for healing.

Symptoms of a Clogged Lymphatic System

Headaches and  
Brain Fog

Headaches and brain fog are two common side effects of congested lymph.

When there is swelling in the head due to a lack of proper lymphatic (and often sinus) drainage, pressure increases causing a headache.

The lymphatic system is also how the cerebrospinal fluid naturally drains out of the brain taking with it waste byproducts and allowing room for new fluid to be produced.

digestive issues can be caused by clogged lymph

Digestive Issues from
Clogged Lymph

Bloating and digestive issues can be directly related to a clogged lymphatic system. 

Approximately 30% of our lymphatic system is linked to our gut or is in the immediate vicinity.  Constipation is a common symptom of congested lymph as are unexplained food sensitivities.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) & Fibromyalgia

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and brain fog/confusion are commonly caused by a congested lymphatic system.  Recently, it was discovered that the fluid that surrounds our brains and spinal cords (cerebrospinal fluid, or CSF) is drained by the lymphatic system. 

Brain Fog

If this fluid is not draining, plaques and other toxins can build up in old CSF and make us feel groggy, confused, and lethargic.  Similarly, depression has been tied to clogged lymphatics.

Skin Problems

Likewise, skin problems such as dry or itchy skin and acne can indicate that our lymph is not flowing as it should. 

Approximately 70% of our lymph system resides directly under the skin.  Cold hands and feet sometimes can be attributed to a backed up lymphatic system.

Sinus Infections & Allergies

Frequent sinus infections and worsening allergies are signs that your lymphatic fluid is not moving effectively, as are an increased occurrence of colds and the flu.

When there is head congestion bacteria and viruses can travel from the nasal cavities into the stagnant fluid located in the sinus cavity, causing an infection.

The feeling of having a stuffy head, congestion, lots of mucous on waking in the morning, or dental infections might also point to a backed up lymphatic system.

Tender Breasts

Tender breasts are generally caused by retained lymphatic fluid in breast tissue.  Elsewhere in the body, general bloating and water retention are commonly caused by a lymphatic system that isn’t up to par.
