How Lymph removal can affect your health and lifestyle
Cancer may spread (metastasize) into the lymphatic system via the lymph nodes, or it may start in the lymphatic system itself. However, the circulation of lymph – from massage or other movement – does not cause cancer to spread. Researchers have shown that cancer develops and spreads because of changes to a cell’s DNA (genetic mutations) and other processes in the body.
Margie's Wellness Center in Davie, Florida, brings to her clients, the hands-on Lymphatic Enhancement technology works like drainage techniques that are made up of slow, subtle, gently sweeping movements, mimicking the rhythmic pumping of the lymphatic fluid through the body. The Lymphstar Pro utilizes light and sound to decongest trapped proteins and congestion within lymph nodes and the lymph system, allowing waste products and toxins to slowly erode and safely flow out through normal channels.
The lymphatic system works in close cooperation with other body systems to perform these important functions, the lymphatic system aids the immune system in destroying pathogens and filtering waste so that the lymph can be safely returned to the circulatory system.
Another function of the lymphatic system is to remove excess fluid, waste, debris, dead blood cells, pathogens, cancer cells, and toxins from these cells and the tissue spaces between them. It is believed that the lymph vessels carry 75% of the waste rejected by our cells. One of its main functions is to heal wounds. If lymph begins to circulate poorly due to blockages, vital functions become impaired. This can lead to water retention, cellulite, exhaustion, stretch-marks, and swollen ankles.
In lymphedema affected tissues, the lymph is unable to drain properly. Instead within these swollen tissues the protein-rich lymph becomes stagnant. When bacteria enter this fluid through a break in the skin, they thrive on this protein-rich fluid. It is for this reason that lymphedema affected tissues are prone to infections.
The lymphatic flow functions normally when there is physical activity and a healthy circulatory system. Stagnation of the lymph occur anywhere along the system creating congestion and thicker lymphatic fluid. Scar tissue created by surgery, injuries, radiation therapy, and removal of the lymph structure cause lymph flow blockage. Some of the results of this are sinus infection, headaches, menopause symptoms, tender cystic breasts, swelling, fatigue and chronic pain syndromes, skin infections, psoriasis, asthma and allergies, cancer, premature aging.
Some people are born with lymphatic diseases, but most others have it because of trauma, surgeries, and poor health habits. The life we live in now with all the modern technology has eventually added to impair the lymph function. Things like lack of exercise, tight clothing, unhealthy foods, electronic and chemical pollution, chronic stress, poor sleep, air pollution, drugs, pesticides, and herbicides.
The equipment we have been successfulling using to daily to perform the lymphatic drainage is the following:

"I met Margie after I had lipo and abdominoplasty done. I couldn't move! I was very swollen and after 3 weeks it was not going away until I met Margie. With her magic hands, she "drain" my body and I could finally walk and be a normal person again. Now I cannot live without a message!! She really gives you personal attention and is very professional. I highly recommend her. God bless you Margie!!" __ Consuelo R. Pembroke Pines, FL
"I truely enjoyed my lymphatic drainage session with Margie yesterday! The environment is very relaxing! I'm looking forward to our next session as I understand that it takes several sessions to get out the toxins from the lymphatics in my body. Makes sense since I've never had this service. Looking forward to the next session as I left feeling very relaxed." __Shanna S,Ft Lauderdale, FL
