Hi Bill....I am curious to know what are your thoughts on the vibe machine used mostly at the chiro's office for supposedly lymph cleansing...I have heard a lot of people say how much better they feel after using it but thought before I invest why not get my favorite people in the world input first. Anyone with knowledge is free to comment. Thank you everyone for all you do...don't know what a lot of us myself included will do without this site...its more than a blessing...peace...
[YEA] I had very bothersome lymph nodes for many years(about 8 years). Mainly my neck. Had every test under the sun. Everything was negative. The thing I finally found that worked was vitamin C. About 4 grams a day. It took a about a month till they were hardly noticeable. Even now(12 years later)... If I feel them even a little, I'll take more and usually a day and I'm fine again. The past year I haven't taken any. Just figured I'd share this. They were very bothersome all the time... I know what it's like.
[YEA] Lymph nodes are not that active by themselves so they are something that we sort of have to work on and pay attention to. A lymphatic massage is a good way to get the lymph fluid circulating, albeit a rather expensive remedy unless you have a college or school nearby that offers sessions at a reduced rate to give students hands on experience.
One way to stimulate the movement of lymph fluid at home is to do yoga. The process of bending, stretching, twisting, contracting and relaxing the muscles acts to squeeze the nodes so they can express the fluid. Another thing I have read that is beneficial to circulating the lymph fluid is using a mini trampoline or rebounder. The action of the gentle jumping causes the lymph fluid to move, in fact it stimulates us at a cellular level in a positive manner. Rebounding is suppose to be an excellent method of body detoxification while using other methods such as internal toxin cleansers, far infared saunas, candida and heavy metals therapies, etc.
One last way to help get lymph fluid moving is to do dry skin brushing before a shower/bath in a circular motion from the ends of your extremities towards your heart, or use a wet loofa sponge, sisal fiber mitt or ayate wash cloth the same way in a shower or bath. They all serve to stimulate circulation and movement of lymph fluid, remove dead skin cells and help detox the body. A stimulating cold shower may also help.
In essence, all forms of movement and exercise will stimulate the lymph glands to do their job so they do not get congested, infected or swollen. Our days of sit down jobs, machines and appliances to do most of our work for us is causing our bodies more problems than what other generations had to deal with. Our bodies were meant to move, not sit dormant. Blessings, Robin
