Clean your Body’s Drains: 11 Ways to Detoxify your Lymphatic SystemREALfarmacy.com | Healthy News and Information

how to detox lymphatic systemThe lymphatic system, or lymph system as it is also called, is a system made up of glands, lymph nodes, the spleen, thymus gland and tonsils. It bathes our body’s cells and carries the body’s cellular sewage away from the tissues to the blood, where it can be filtered by two of the body’s main detoxification organs: the liver and kidneys. This sewage is made up of the byproducts of our bodily processes, over-the-counter and prescription drugs, illicit drugs, cigarette toxins, other airborne pollutants, food additives, pesticides and other toxins.

The Fat Flush Plan author Ann Louise Gittleman, PhD, estimates that 80 percent of women have sluggish lymphatic systems and that getting them flowing smoothly is the key to easy weight loss and improved feelings of well-being.
If you are suffering from injuries, excess weight or cellulite, or pain disorders like arthritis, bursitis, headaches or others, a sluggish lymphatic system may be playing a role.  Here are 11 ways you can get your lymph flowing smoothly.
1.  Breathe deeply. Our bodies have three times more lymph fluid than blood, yet no organ to pump it. Your lymph system relies on the pumping action of deep breathing to help it transport toxins into the blood before they are detoxified by your liver. So breathe in that sweet smell of healing oxygen. Breathe out toxins.
2.  Get moving. Exercise also ensures the lymph system flows properly. The best kind is rebounding on a mini trampoline, which can dramatically improve lymph flow, but stretching and aerobic exercise also work well.
3.  Drink plenty of water. Without adequate water, lymph fluid cannot flow properly. To help ensure the water is readily absorbed by your cells, I frequently add some fresh lemon juice or oxygen or pH drops.
4.  Forget the soda, trash the neon-colored sports drinks, and drop the fruit “juices” that are more sugar than fruit. These sugar-, color- and preservative-laden beverages add to the already overburdened workload your lymph system must handle.
5.  Eat more raw fruit on an empty stomach. The enzymes and acids in fruit are powerful lymph cleansers. Eat them on an empty stomach for best digestion and maximum lymph-cleansing benefits. Most fruits are digested within 30 minutes or so and quickly help you feel better.

Explantation - Healing Breast Implant Illness

Timely and proper explantation (removal) of breast implants is the most crucial step to your recovery from breast implant illness.  As soon as the implants are properly removed, you will likely notice a reduction or clearing of some of your SYMPTOMS.  However, some symptoms may linger until your body has completed a DETOXIFICATION process and had a chance to heal.   Good news is, we note a number of women who were symptomatic and had timely explantation and felt that they recovered their health within approximately a year after removal of implants.  Unfortunately, there are other women who do not ever fully recover their health or quality of life due to breast implants and some women who develop deadly disease and die prematurely due to breast implants.

No matter what you read or are told from your plastic surgeon about explantation of breast implants, if you are symptomatic

En-bloc is a breast implant removal procedure first developed in France to deal with the earlier versions of silicone breast implants when ruptured and leaking silicone.  En-bloc removal means the surgeon removes the surrounding tissue capsule and the implant together, intact, as one unit, without disrupting either capsule or implant to avoid further contamination of the body tissues.  If you are symptomatic it should be obvious to you and your doctor that the tissue capsule around your implant is contaminated and En-bloc removal is necessary.  Proper En-bloc removal is your best chance at recovering your health.  Even if you are not symptomatic and you have silicone, cohesive gel or textured saline implants they should be removed En-bloc for your utmost health because there will be contamination in the capsule.
Recently, I have been hearing from several women who just got implants in the last few months and are reacting immediately and having them removed.  In the case that your implants are only a few months old, En-bloc removal would not be necessary as there would be very little capsule tissue built by your body in the first few months of having implants.

Adverse event reporting is supposed to help the MHRA identify potential problems. Not enough reports were being made all the time PIP were being used. The MHRA say they have been and are continuing to monitor Adverse event reports from PIP women. Most women have no idea they are able to report adverse events linked with their implants. But if we dont report our bleeds, ruptures, our lymph node surgeries the MHRA and the gov will continue to live in the parallel universe they currently inhabit, happily ignoring us and our symptoms. Experienced an adverse event you associate with your PIP? Please report it and ask your GP and/or surgeon to do the same. Lets do it everyone! Report Yours! xx ♡

So, get your PIP serial numbers out and report away!!!

Oh, and give us a heads-up here when you are done;)

Thanks everyone ♥ together we can make a difference!

Take action - Say NO to hormone disrupting chemicals


Hormone disrupting chemicals, often known as endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs), are chemicals that can interfere with natural hormones, the chemical messengers of our bodies.
Our everyday exposure to these chemicals – in our food, cosmetics, homes, work places, schools, and hospitals, to name just a few routes, must stop in order to protect the health of current and future generations.

Scientific evidence links exposure to hormone disrupting chemicals to spiralling rates of hormone-related cancers such as breast or testicular cancer, fertility problems, diabetes and obesity as well as learning and behavioural problems in children. Exposure also disrupts the hormonal systems of wildlife. The World Health Organization (WHO) has called hormone disrupting chemicals a ‘global threat’.

Due to intensive industry lobbying, the European Commission has delayed action on hormone disrupting chemicals. However, a public consultation has now been launched to gather feedback on public concerns

Thyroid UK - Getting a Diagnosis and Starting Treatment

It’s quite possible that you have been ill for some time and have visited your General Practitioner (GP) on many occasions regarding some symptom or other.

If you have read our information and if you have a lot of the symptoms of hypothyroidism (Myxoedema/underactive thyroid) or hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid), think about making an appointment to go back to your GP and discuss some options with him. Your doctor will need all the information about your health that you can give him.  Give your doctor copies of anything you have written down so that he can read it and put a copy in your record. It’s better to be specific about your symptoms or your doctor may miss something.

For instance, if you have to have the heating up high in your house all the time because you are cold and people make comments about this, tell your doctor.  If you find yourself going to bed early, waking up late and sleeping all afternoon because you are so tired, tell your doctor. If you walk around all day in shorts and a t-shirt and have the windows open all the time, even in winter, because you are always very hot, tell your doctor.

ry to be clear and precise when you speak to your doctor.  It might be an idea to take someone with you if you can, not only for support but also so that they can remember what has been said.  How often have you come out of the doctor’s surgery and forgotten nearly everything that was said to you?  This person may also be able to confirm what you are telling the doctor.

Undiagnosed hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism can cause a great strain on the heart.   Hypothyroidism can cause coronary atherosclerosis (furring up of the arteries) due to high cholesterol levels.  Dr Rowan Hillson tells us in her book, “Thyroid Disorders”, “Lack of T3 and T4 alters fat metabolism… and this can lead to furring of the coronary arteries (coronary atherosclerosis) and reduction of the blood supply to some of the heart muscle.  This causes angina… - pain in the chest on exercising, which is usually relieved by rest. Coronary atherosclerosis can cause angina, a heart attack or coronary thrombosis.”

Hyperthyroidism causes the heart to beat faster and increases the risk of stroke as well as atrial fibrillation (fast and irregular heartbeat).

It is therefore very important not to miss a diagnosis of hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism.

Thyroid UK suggest a step by step approach:
