Lymphatic drainage of the body
Rid of swelling and improvement of general health through lymphatic drainage.
The human body hides many miracles, one of which is that health and well-being provide us with a delicate interaction of complex autonomous systems of the body. Well, one of the most intriguing and dynamic “options” that the human body has is the lymphatic system. Therefore, many doctors and therapists have long since called lymph “the elixir of life”.
The lymphatic system is a complex network consisting of lymphatic vessels, afferent and efferent lymphangions, lymph nodes, lymphoid tissue and a unique body fluid, lymph. The viability of the lymphatic system reflects the health of the skin and, ultimately, the overall health.
One of the main functions of lymphatic vessels is the consistent work of detoxification and tissue regeneration, which in turn helps to maintain the health of the immune system. The lymphatic system produces millions of white particles – leukocytes, antibodies for immune defense. All biochemical processes in the body become possible due to the flow of lymph through the cells. Lymph is almost colorless, naturally alkaline and similar to blood plasma, except that the lymph contains mainly white blood cells – leukocytes. The lymph itself consists mainly of water, as well as salts and dissolved proteins. All biochemical processes that occur every second throughout the body are impossible without lymph.
Why and when do we need the limfodrenazh body?
The lymphatic system is also responsible for the filtration – the return of the necessary proteins and water from the interstitial tissue of a number of organs to the cardiovascular system. Lymphatic vessels are delicately intertwined with the blood vessels, so their work depends on the blood circulation – however, these two systems are completely different. The circulation of lymph differs from the circulation in that there is no central pump in the lymphatic system, similar to the heart. Unlike blood circulation, lymph circulation is not always carried out in all parts of the body in a coordinated and full manner. This is why our body often needs additional lymphatic drainage.
- “Purification.” One of the unique tasks of the lymphatic system is purification from toxins and toxic metabolites of the organs and tissues of our body, that is, detoxification. The lymphatic system also helps repair injuries in injured tissues from various injuries and relieves the body of excess proteins and toxins by excreting through the primary detoxification organs: liver, lungs, bladder, kidneys, mucous membranes, and skin.
- “Ablution.” Cells of our skin need a “bath”, and in chronic cases of lymphatic stagnation (stagnation), cells can become dehydrated, which of course affects the skin condition. Also, because many body functions due to stagnation are compromised, tissues, including dermis, can become toxic as a result of using their own waste to promote the acceleration of aging. The lack of blood circulation and oxygenation will entail that the tissues become more acidic, and this will lead to muscle hardening and fibrous changes that can lead to swelling and stiffness. If you restore the natural flow of lymph circulation and stimulate lymphatic drainage, this will help eliminate toxic waste.
When? Excess mucus is a hint from the body that it needs such a “detox”. The fact is that often in the framework of the protective response of the body to irritating metabolites and infections, excess mucus is produced – it is necessary to protect delicate membranes of various organs from irritants, bacteria, and viruses. However, the excessive accumulation of such “waste” in the body can trigger response reactions from the respiratory system and the digestive tract. Signs of lymphatic stasis include an excess of mucus in the body, which is accompanied by frequent colds, chronic cough, bad breath, cough in the nose and sore throat.
Types of lymphatic drainage of the body: a cosmetologist or a gym?
Improvement of blood circulation also automatically improves lymphatic drainage (lymph drainage). In addition to circulation, normal lymphatic drainage also depends on other factors, such as muscle contraction, movement, pressure and gravity changes, spontaneous contractility of lymph vessels, external factors.
How to do lymphatic drainage? Cosmetic and therapeutic practices that help alleviate the normal flow of blood and lymph include: physical exercises, detoxification programs, including a variety of massages (haemolymphatic drainage and lymphatic drainage massage ); the technique of “deep breathing” (such as practiced in yoga), physical exertion, for example, plyometric exercises , and of course, the famous lymph drainage massage by the method of Vodder.
