Therapist Working on LipedemaOften when you think of swelling most people think of the heart or kidneys. The lymphatic system plays a major role in how well your body handles fluid. You can help reduce swelling with lymphatic system detoxification. When the lymphatic system is not working optimally to move cellular waste from the tissues of the body you have edema or swelling due to a backup of interstitial fluid. This acidic cellular waste creates little log jams which can limit circulation and lead to congestion and swelling. It doesn’t matter if you are concerned about a little excess fluid under your skin, pressure in your head or more serious problems like Lipedema or Lymphedema, you need to know how to detox and maintain your lymphatic system using diet, supplements and self-lymphatic drainage to help reduce or better control swelling.
