the lymph nodes which are distributed throughout your body, you should contact your doctor immediately. While such a swelling may not automatically point to the presence of a cancer, it is advised to check for such a possibility. In short, one should never ignore the symptoms of lymphatic swelling.

When your body’s lymphatic system experience a major, and continued, blockage, your lymph nodes may become noticeably swollen and sore. A swollen, blocked, lymphatic system is a severe health hazard, as an infected lymph node system will no longer be able to remove toxins from your body. A lymphatic blockage will also affect your body’s white cell count. This is another severe health hazard, as the white blood cells in your body forms its first line of defense against bacteriological and viral elements.


However, there is a modern procedure which has recently been developed to alleviate this blockage of the lymphatic system, as well its effects on your body. This procedure is regularly performed by medical specialists, and has been documented to result in major success in the overwhelming majority of cases in which it is called for. Indeed, the process of lymphatic drainage has been scientifically shown to successfully reduce blockage.

Reduction and elimination of lymphatic blockage has proven to be the key toward promoting health in your body’s lymphatic system, as well as in other systems in your body such as the respiratory, circulatory, endocrine, and muscular systems. Indeed, comprehensive scientific and medical research has produced the general recommendation that in such conditions as lymph-edema, a lymph drainage procedure should be performed immediately.

Lymph-edema

Lymph-edema is a particularly common form of lymph blockage, in which a blockage leads to painful, inflamed, swelling in the arms and the legs. There have been certain additional scientific and medical studies performed concerning the procedure of lymph drainage, in which researchers have pointed to evidence that this new lymphatic drainage therapy can also help to significantly reduce such common ailments as colds, allergic reactions, menstrual cramps, and many forms of illness which are caused by bacteriological and viral agents.

Lymphatic drainage is usually mandated by your attending health care professional as a safe, preventative operation. Should such drainage need to be performed several times of the course of an unduly short period, or if physical symptoms such as continual, prolonged swelling in the glands, begin to assert themselves after such a procedure, then additional surgery may need to be performed. Your physician will then evaluate the situation, and decide if you are well enough to undergo additional corrective surgery to eliminate the problem once and for all.

In addition to corrective surgical procedures such as lymph drainage, there are also a number of measures which you as an individual can take in order to promote a free-flowing lymph system, which will not be easily prone to the occurrence of such blockages. These are simple, preventative, measures such as avoiding the use of unduly tightly fitting undergarments such as bras (especially tightly restricting “sports” bras),pantyhose, and certain types of “tights” such as ballet tights. Reducing the stress that prolonged wearing of these garments can go a long way toward reducing the probability of developing a lymphatic blockage.

Remember, your health is in your hands. So make the right choices, and help to keep your body healthy and strong!
