Many people ask me or even wonder privately why each body reacts differently to identical or similar physical responses. For example, two friends come in to do an infrared body wrap, which is extremely powerful healing and detoxification tool. Typically people experience the increase in energy in two different way. The day of their infrared body wrap and other experience they energy boost the following day. After much pondering myself, and with the information I have learned which I try my best to condense for easy reading. The Lymph system and waste organs (kidneys, liver, spleen and bone marrow) of the body make the difference on how the body heals/protects itself.
The Lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that help rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted cellular materials. The word lymph originates from the ancient roman deity of fresh water, Lympha. Lymph is the interstitial fluid (fluid inside the cells of the body) that is collected through lymph capillaries. These flow into lymph vessels into the lymph nodes (These nodes are what doctor’s talk about when talking about staging how far cancer has spread – Node biopsies. It is also what doctors talk about when they feel the sides of throat when you are sick – the tonsils). Do you see a pattern here?
In the lymph nodes is where the cleaning process happens by lymphocytes, which are natural killer cells. When NK cells encounter a problem they release cytokine that will kill foreign bodies in the cell without needing antibody stimulation. They allow the body’s immune system to function without influence of an infectious response.
Improper care primarily through bad diet and lack of physical care causes the lymph system to get backed up. When this happens the body can not properly protect itself by removing waste and toxins out of the body. Luckily we can help the body stay healthy by adjusting our diet. Avoid processed foods. Processed foods put a strain on your lymphatic system, says DetoxSafely.org. Avoid white bread, candy, processed meats such as luncheon meats and hot dogs, fast foods, canned foods and packaged dinners, cereals and baked goods. Incorporating daily physical active keeps the lymph fluid moving, movement is life!
A study published in January 2017 tested the safety efficacy of far infrared therapy on people with lymphedema. The results showed overwhelming positive impact on the participant’s health and life. “We believe FIR treatment could be considered as both an alternative monotherapy and a useful adjunctive to the conservative or surgical lymphedema procedures. Furthermore, the real and significant biological effects of FIR represent possible future applications in wide range of the medical field (Li K, 2017)”
If you are interested in what a far infrared body wrap can do you’re your health and over all wellness, please book a consultation. All candidates will have the consultation applied to their wrap. If you are not a candidate, there will be no charge for the consultation.
