Recent research linked the buildup of amyloid to heart failure. You can lower risk of heart failure by improving lymph flow to reduce the buildup of desmin proteins which are clumping together and congesting the heart. When the lymphatic system is working optimally it helps to reabsorb cellular waste that can build in the heart limiting the ability of the lymphatic system to reabsorb fluid and cellular waste. When the heart becomes overly acidic it can limit lymph flow and lead to proteins building in the heart to form amyloid deposits which can be fatal. Improving the lymphatic system with a more alkaline diet, magnesium, enzymes, exercise and manually improving the lymphatic system can help lower your risk of heart failure.
