The lymphatic system is part of the circulatory system and a vital part of the immune system.
It is responsible for collecting and moving toxins out of the body via the flow of lymphatic fluid through vessels and nodes. Unfortunately, lymphatic flow can stagnate due to swelling, chronic inflammation, lack of physical activity, stress, fatigue, emotional shock, age, and more. When lymphatic circulation slows down, the regeneration of cells becomes less effective, which allows toxins and proteins to accumulate around the cells, creating blockages and further restricting the flow of lymphatic fluid in the body. This stagnation of cells leads to increased inflammation and pain.
Electro-Lymphatic Therapy is in a class of technology known as vibrational science. The instrument achieves its results on an energetic level. Lymph Purify has been found to be up to ten times more effective in clearing stagnant lymph and relieving edema than manual lymphatic drainage, reducing the time and complexity of the therapy.
ELT uses a combination of vibrational, light, and electrical waves to help stimulate lymphatic flow by causing the separation of proteins that have become trapped in the interstitium. When trapped proteins – not to be confused with nutrient proteins – release their bond, the stagnant lymph is liberated and will flow out into its normal filtration and reabsorption channels.
Since lymphatic organs play an important role in the immune system, the proper flow of the lymphatic fluid can positively impact many conditions. ELT can help those struggling with a multitude of symptoms, including…
Fibromyalgia, chronic pain, & auto-immune disorders
General inflammation, lymphedema, & edema
Lyme disease, Mononucleosis, & other chronic infections
Current or previous cancer diagnosis
Post cosmetic surgery healing
Muscle & tendon strain
Heart disease & diabetes
ELT should not be used by those who are pregnant, have a pacemaker, have received a recent organ transplant, or are in kidney failure.
8 Facts You May Not Know About The Lymphatic System
New research reveals that 80% of overweight women have sluggish lymphatic systems. Trapped toxins and excess fluid can add an extra 10 – 15 pounds.
As the body’s second circulatory system, decongesting stagnant lymph can substantially reduce the risk of atherosclerosis, or blockage of the arteries.
Lymphatic drainage is one of the few techniques to be successfully used in the permanent reduction of cellulite.
In emphasizing prevention, lymphatic drainage has been found to be beneficial in improving healthy flow of lymphatic fluids, critical to the health of the cell in the breast.
Lymphatic stagnation can weaken the immune system, compromising the integrity of the cells and encouraging inflammation, which is known to be the beginning of many common illnesses.
Without a properly functioning lymphatic system, fat and cholesterol cannot be carried away from the heart. Dr. Bruno Chikly believes that at least 30% of heart attacks may be related to the health of the lymphatic system, a condition called lymphostatic angiopathy.
Lymphatic drainage improves veno-circulation, which aids in the elimination of excess fluids and stored toxins, leaving your skin infinitely more youthful and vibrant.
Conditions that respond positively to an improvement in lymphatic health are swelling, pain, allergies, tissue congestion, inflammation, Lupus, and many problems related to fluid retention.
