Lymph, Blood & Skin

Lymph

illustration of the Lymphatic System

Lymph is a watery, slightly yellow liquid found in the lymphatic vessels of one’s body. These vessels act as a drainage system for the body. Just as blood circulates throughout one’s body so does the lymph. Lymphatic vessels range in size from very large to microscopic and are found in every organ and tissue of the body. These lymphatic vessels flow alongside one’s blood vessels. However, unlike blood, lymph does not flow because of a heart “pump”. Lymph flows slowly, coaxed by the movement of the body’s muscles, until it empties back into the blood vessels just above the heart.

The actual lymph fluid is formed when liquid plasma and protein from the blood ooze out of their capillaries and are then picked up by the almost transparent lymph capillaries (vessels). However, it is not only excess fluid from the blood that is picked up, but also nutrients, hormones, waste products of the cells, bacteria, cancer cells, and cellular debris. Also present within the lymph are lymphocytes, which disable harmful foreign invaders. During circulation lymph passes through countless lymph nodes stationed throughout its pathways. Each lymph node acts as a filter helping to destroy microorganisms and cellular debris. Besides helping to maintain the body’s fluid balance and defend the body against disease, the lymph absorbs digested fats from the intestines and transports them to the blood.

When the lymphatic system becomes overly toxic, it leaves a great deal of unprocessed waste throughout one’s body. This can lead to a weak immune system, frequent colds, and an overall cloudy & weighted feeling throughout the body.

In Depth

The lymphatic system relies on muscle contractions to move lymph throughout its vessels. Without this muscular action the lymph would not “flow” through its own vessels. However, when the lymph becomes toxic there is a continual need for movement to break up the toxins in the body. This is manifested emotionally as a feeling of continual agitation, the need to move, to break up the toxic lymph. It can also create cloudy thoughts when toxins are not being processed.

Blood & Skin

illustration of Circulatory System

The blood’s job is to deliver oxygen, food and other essential substances to all the body’s cells, while also picking up carbon dioxide and other wastes to be sent to the organs of elimination. It also makes the blood clot when necessary, and defends the body against invasion by bacteria, viruses, and cancer cells. It regulates body temperature, maintains body pH and the fluid volume in the circulatory system.

In Depth

The blood is the body’s transportation system. Nutrients, toxic wastes, and oxygen are a few of the things transported through the blood. It is primarily the liver’s job to insure the blood remains clean. However, when any part of one’s body becomes toxic, the entire system is affected. When the blood is full of excess toxins and the liver and kidney are not completely cleansing the blood, the blood will look towards the skin as a means of toxin elimination. Attempting to “push” toxins out through the skin can cause rashes and other skin problems to develop. By using a cleansing kit and cleaning the blood one directly affects the skin as well.
