Getting rid of the toxic matter that accumulates in the body is one of the most important ways to stay healthy. The human body consists of many organs and glands that are supposed to remove toxins from the body. This system of organs and glands is called the lymphatic system. Unfortunately, the lymphatic system can become clogged and not work properly in most people.

The lymphatic system is a part of the circulatory system and a crucial part of the immune system. It consists of glands, lymph nodes, spleen, thymus gland and tonsils. The lymphatic system has several functions, such as:
- Removal of interstitial fluid from the tissue
- Absorption and transport of fatty acids and fats in the digestive system
- Transport of white blood cells to and from lymph nodes in bones
- Transport of antigen-presenting cells (APCs), such as dendritic cells, to lymph nodes where an immune response is stimulated
Unfortunately, the lymphatic system is out of balance in many people due to nutrient deficiencies, high intake of processed foods and lack of physical activity. Below is a list with other health conditions that might suggest your lymphatic system needs a serious cleanse:
- Skin conditions
- Digestive disorders
- Frequent headaches
- Sinus infections
- Unexplained injuries
- Excessive weight
- Chronic fatigue
The lymphatic system does not have its own active pumping system and needs body movement, breathing, bowel activity and muscle action to create flow and push toxins out of the body.

5. Drink clean water
It is advisable to drink up to half your body weight in ounces of water per day to further cleanse your system of toxins. (For example, if you have 160 lbs. = 80 ounces of water). You should also drink a few glasses of lemon water.
6. Avoid wearing tight clothes
7. Breathe deeply
Our body has 3 times more lymph fluid than blood, but there is no organ to pump it. The pumping action of deep breathing will help the lymphatic system carry toxins into the bloodstream before they are detoxified by the liver.
8. Eat foods that promote lymphatic flow
Eating raw, nutrient-dense foods promotes a healthy lymphatic system. Some of the best lymphatic cleansing foods are:
- Green leafy vegetables
- Fruits with a low sugar content
- Ground flax seeds
- Chia seeds
- Brazilian nuts
9. Avoid foods that cause blockages in the lymphatic system
Improve your lymphatic health by avoiding the following foods:
- Processed food
- Conventionally raised meat
- Artificial sweeteners
- Conventional dairy
- Table salt
10. Drink herbal tea that stimulates lymphatic flow
There are many herbs that can be very helpful for the lymphatic system. Use the following herbs to make teas that promote lymph health:
- Wild indigo root
- Put the root
