Clean up your diet to cleanse your lymphatic system. A healthy diet produces less waste for your lymph system to clean up, reducing your chances of congestion.

  • Avoid processed foods that are high in salt, sugar and preservatives.
  • Replace simple sugars and carbohydrates with whole grains, complex carbohydrates and fruit.

Identify any food allergies you may have and avoid eating those foods.


Consider alternative therapies.

  • Regular treatment of  lymph drainage via state of art  instrumentation is a great way to keep your entire body healthy and your lymph system running smoothly

·         Relax in a sauna or steam bath and let your body sweat out toxins to cleanse your system.

Drink 6 to 8 glasses of purified water daily. Your body needs to be well hydrated to keep your lymph system operating properly.

Practice deep breathing from your diaphragm and through your nose to keep your lymph fluids moving.

Get regular physical exercise. Jumping up and down on a trampoline or playing jump rope for 5 minutes a day is great for your lymph system. Other moderate exercise, such as walking and stretching, is also helpful if done regularly.

Wear clothing that fits properly. Tight clothing restricts your lymph system and contributes to blockage. For the same reason, women should avoid under-wire bras and try to wear no bra for at least 12 hours each day.

Deal with stress, depression and other emotional issues. Just like a congested lymph system can lead to emotional problems, so can the reverse occur. Sometimes when we are stuck in stress or other emotional issues, these feelings manifest in physical problems.

Do a detox and colon cleanse treatment following manufacturer instructions.

  • Choose one that is supported by liver enzymes to ease the burden on your liver and kidneys, and to decrease the pressure they place on your spleen.
  • If you are under a doctor's care for any medical conditions, you should check with her before doing a detox and cleanse.
