Let’s be honest. Most of us are not familiar with lymphatic drainage or even know what the lymphatic system is.
That’s because it is one of the least talked systems in the human body.
However, researchers in 2012 claimed it to be as important as the circulatory system in terms of human health and well-being.
The lymphatic system as researchers have found is vital to the body in the sense that it controls inflammation of organs of the body as well as helps in tissue repair.
An irregular drainage of the lymphatic system may cause impairments to the immune system and also tumours in the lymph nodes.
Even if you exercise regularly it is important to maintain a regular drainage of the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system needs to be kept in the best shape for an optimal health.
Why You Should Support Your Lymphatic System
By cleansing the fluids surrounding your cells, the lymphatic system removes impurities and waste from the body. This helps the cells carry out their functions in a proper manner.
An unhealthy lymphatic system poses a serious threat to the body. It means the body is prone to a range of diseases and ailments like fibromyalgia, obesity, chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis, aches and pains, bloating and other issues related to indigestion.

A lot of herbs and teas are known to purify the lymphatic system.
Echinacea is a herb known to effectively drain the lymphatic system thereby purifying it. It also boosts the immune system.
It reduces inflammation and wards off bacterial, fungal and viral infections.
Macrophages are the cells in the lymph nodes that excrete toxins from the skin. Echinacea helps strengthen these cells which accelerate the process of purifying the body.
3. Sweat It Out in a Sauna
One of the most effective ways of releasing toxins from the body is perspiration.
A rise in our body temperature allows our sweat gland to release chemical toxins from our body.
Sauna baths stimulate our sweat glands, making it easy to release all the built-up toxins such as copper, mercury, sodium, and lead.
