10 effective and safe folk remedies for lymph cleansing

The lymphatic system is one of the most important components of the human immune system.

It is a kind of complement to the cardiovascular system, and its main purpose is intercellular metabolism, as well as purification of cells and tissues of the body from toxins and end products of vital activity.

For prevention purposes, it is recommended to regularly clean the lymphatic system, at least 1-2 times a year. This will significantly strengthen the immune system, and also prevent the development of chronic diseases of the cardiovascular system.

Top 10 Best Methods

The first thing that should be done without fail is to consult a doctor. You can contact a therapist immediately, since he has the right to prescribe blood, stool, and urine tests, as well as send for fluorography, additional examinations to doctors of narrow specialization.

All this in combination will allow you to determine the exact physiology of the patient, the presence of diseases of the urethra, cardiovascular system, liver. In some cases, it will be unsafe to clean (for example, with inflamed lymph nodes or in the presence of a malignant tumor).

After that, you can already start the cleansing procedure. Here is a list of the 10 most common folk recipes and methods.

1. Licorice and Enterosorbent

This is probably the most popular way to cleanse the body and dilute the lymph. Licorice root extract accelerates lymph outflow, and Enterosorbent prevents toxins from entering the body from the gastrointestinal tract, which eventually cleanses the entire lymphatic system of toxins.

This technique is quite effective, and most importantly, it is safe. Licorice can also be taken in the form of an alcoholic infusion, which is sold in any pharmacy. The entire course takes only 1 week.

2. Herbal preparations and teas

Herbal preparations based on nettle, celandine (dried) and horsetail are most often used. Nettle accelerates the outflow of lymph, celandine – gets rid of toxins and toxins in the intestine, and horsetail – acts as a diuretic, cleanses the urethra, normalizes the balance of sodium and potassium in the body.

Treatment can also be supplemented with tea from pharmacy chamomile, calendula and immortelle – this will comprehensively strengthen the immune system and improve liver function.

3. Fruit and vegetable juices

The following juices are best suited for purifying lymph:

  1. Tomato;
  2. Garnet;
  3. Carrot (with pumpkin – even better);
  4. Grape;
  5. Beetroot;
  6. "green" (based on spinach, dill, parsley, asparagus).

And their main effect is to saturate the lymph with nutrients, as well as increase its acidity, which subsequently normalizes the balance of potassium and sodium in the blood.

Tomato, pomegranate, grape juice should be consumed carefully, preferably in a diluted form. They should be abandoned in the presence of chronic diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, in particular, gastritis, peptic ulcer of the stomach and duodenum.


4. A mixture of garlic, onion and lemon

Such a mixture mainly cleanses the lymph from toxins formed during the vital activity of pathogenic infections. The cleaning itself takes only 4 days.

To prepare the mixture, mix 1 onion, 1 garlic, 1 lemon, all this is finely chopped or crushed with a blender, then boiled in 1 liter of milk.

Take 1.5 cups in the morning and evening.

It is worth considering what is the remedy causes diarrhea in many patients is a normal phenomenon, as the mixture causes irritation of the intestinal walls.

5. Marva Ohanyan's Method

7. Lymph cleansing by Norman Walker

Involves cleansing the body with Glauber's salt, as well as fruit and vegetable juices. The procedure is designed for only 4 days and allows you to get rid of chronic constipation.

But it is worth considering that according to this method by Norman Walker there are the most negative reviews on thematic forums . In the sense that no positive effect is subsequently observed. But there are no side effects either. Therefore, this option of cleansing the lymph system should be used as an addition to any other.

8. Olga Butakova's Method

The key difference of this technique is that it uses pharmacological preparations. In particular:

  1. Artichoke;
  2. Coral Mine;
  3. Fan Detox;
  4. True Lecithin;
  5. Assimilator;
  6. Alfalfa.

9. The Tibetan method

Involves cleansing the body with a mixture of carrot and beet juice. They are mixed in a ratio of 4 to 1, they should be drunk before each meal for 10 days (1 cup each). At the same time, a cleansing enema is performed every other day.

This technique allows you to quickly normalize the correct balance of shaped elements in the blood, as well as improve the functioning of the gastrointestinal tract.

And another important nuance &8212; all enemas are performed using an infusion of pharmacy chamomile, which will reduce the concentration of pathogenic bacteria in the intestine and normalize the microflora in the future.

10. Decoction of licorice root and activated charcoal

It is also no less popular option than licorice root with Enterosgel.

The principle of operation is similar. The root extract accelerates the outflow of lymph, and activated charcoal removes toxins from the intestine. The course is 7 days, after 7 days of break it should be repeated. And so – 3 times.

The main advantage of this method is safety. But there is one minor side effect – stimulation of mucus secretion, which can provoke coughing (especially common in smokers).

What should be avoided?

The most polluting lymph is:

  1. Sodium compounds. They are formed in the body when the functionality of the urethra is impaired. Another common reason is the abuse of alcoholic beverages, since the neutralization of ethyl alcohol derivatives leads to the loss of huge volumes of liquid and potassium, which just stimulate the elimination of toxins.
  2. Waste products of infections. After infection with any virus or bacterium, the human body is slowly poisoned by toxins, which they secrete. After that, the immune system is activated, which suppresses the spread of infection. But toxins, including those neutralized by the liver and kidneys, remain to a small extent and subsequently enter the lymph. Accordingly, with frequent infectious diseases, the lymph becomes "polluted" much faster.
  3. Smoking. Tobacco smoke is known to contain about 85 chemical compounds that the body does not need. And all of them subsequently enter the bloodstream, spread through cells and tissues. And they are then excreted with the help of lymph. Accordingly, chronic smokers have more "dirty" lymph and they should first of all worry about its timely cleaning. Smokers are recommended to perform it at least 4 times a year (1 time per quarter), which minimizes the negative effects of tobacco on the body.
  4. Abuse of foods rich in trans fats. Such compounds are not absorbed by the body in any way, most of the compounds based on them (along with amino acids mainly) eventually enter the lymph, often remain in the lymph nodes. Such products should be completely abandoned. The most "common" products from this category are margarine, sausages, and various kinds of fatty desserts.
  5. Excessive consumption of sweets. In excess, sugar, which enters the bloodstream and is used by the body for energy synthesis, works as a toxin, accelerating the process of cell oxidation. Accordingly, the body uses only the amount of glucose that it really needs. Everything else is excreted, including along with lymph. And the real human need for sugar is only 30 grams per day. Therefore, if you eat just one standard bar of chocolate, then almost half of it will already be excess carbohydrates. How to get rid of sugar addiction read in a separate article.

Lymph also accumulates toxins in chronic diseases of the urethra, liver (in particular, cirrhosis). But in this case, only cleaning at home is not enough – you will need to eliminate the original cause of the disease. So, you definitely can't do without consulting a doctor.
