Whole Body Detoxification
If you are feeling sluggish and need a detox, getting Electro-Lymphatic Therapy (ELT) or Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) are powerful ways to purge toxins from your body and set your body on a pathway to health and healing.
Lymphatic Drainage flushes waste from the body’s tissues that have become stagnated.
Our Lymphatic System is the major highway that transports waste away from our cells and helps bring them to our liver and kidneys (by returning them to the blood) for filtering out of the body.
Get Up and Move
Most of us have sedentary lives, meaning we sit around a great deal – at work at our desks and at home on the couch or in bed. This lack of movement means that lymph isn’t being moved.
The lymphatic system does not have a big pump like our blood circulatory system. For lymph to make it into the lymphatic system from the area around the cells, we must move.
Drink Plenty of Water
Despite our best efforts, most of us do not get enough water each day. Being even slightly dehydrated has a huge impact on your lymphatic system.
Imagine for a second that you have a straw and a bowl full of jello. You want to try to suck the jello through the straw. Difficult, right?
Now imagine the bowl is full of water that you want to get through the straw. Piece of cake!
When we don’t get enough water, our lymph changes its consistency from watery to more jello-like which means it is harder to move.
The “Magic” of Electro-Lymphatic Therapy
To make matters worse, much like trying to pour water down a drain that is already clogged, drinking more water doesn’t mean your lymph just starts moving again.
This is where the “magic” of Electro-Lymphatic Therapy comes into play. Unlike Manual Lymphatic Drainage which just tries to push jello-like lymph around, Electro-Lymphatic Therapy changes that jello-like lymph to a more water-like consistency. This process is called “decongestion.”
