Okay, I have to start by saying that I am not hawking wares or trying to get anyone to sign up for anything. Just the opposite, in fact.
I am flatfooted, and have had some pain since I was little because of this. There were a number of injuries in my youth that never really healed. To make a long story shorter, the pain stepped up during puberty and I have not taken anything yet that alleviates it much at all. Basically, after 15 years of severe full body pain, frequent illness, and what was thought to be obesity and all the shame and scorn that comes with it, frustration and research lead me to attempt to drain my lymphatic system through very gentle massage.
Two weeks later, I have lost 12-15 inches in circumference without changing my diet or activity level... because my lymph nodes were clogged and the lymphatic fluid built up and stagnated (also known as cellulite).
It takes only a light touch and remembering to massage in counter-clockwise circles from the feet up, or head down, toward the heart, which is a main site of drainage.
I still have more to go and there were a number of other physical problems that developed since this all happened while I was growing, but the difference is so huge it's really absurd. I had no idea how contorted my body had become. It's been real torture -- my arms, shoulders and left leg essentially pinned in stress positions at all times. People who've seen me in the past couple weeks are stunned. I'm stunned.
Labeled as fat for most of my life, I didn't get the help I needed because no one would believe that the problem could be anything but a character flaw. These processed foods are immunosuppressant, and I wonder if they haven't been the main cause for the spike in obesity, diabetes, cancer rates, as well as the increasing number of cases of autoimmune disease. Why would the body know what to do with this junk we find in the store?
Anyway, give it a try on your lymph nodes. I feel better than I have since I was a little girl. My eustachian tubes are opening up, all of my senses are enlivened, and I have more energy as my body is cleansed.
I noticed a change within minutes. You ought to be able to feel the cellulite transform from semi-solid to fluid, and an unblocked lymph node will suck it right up.
I hope this helps some people. I've been massaging obsessively since I learned this, which explains the quick results. I think. But really. Obsessively.
If you can have someone help you with your back, do -- it's better if you can relax. Let's see... oh, and it can't hurt to give it a shot because the worst case scenario is that your body gets a little tlc.
