The first step in cleansing the lymphatic system is to cleanse the colon so that the excess mucoid material backed up in the lymphatic system can be drained out. The second step is to practice dry skin brushing. This is a highly effective technique for stimulating the expulsion of fresh mucoid material, hardened particles or impacted mucoid matter and other obstructions in the lymph system, which will reduce inflammations of the lymph nodes caused by these accumulations. Like the colon, the lymphatic system can contain stagnant accumulations of old waste matter. Once the colon is at least partially cleansed, it takes a few months of daily dry skin brushing to completely cleanse the lymphatic system. Because the gastrointestinal cleansing softens hardened mucoid in the lymphatic system as well as the intestines, performing dry skin brushing concurrently with our gastrointestinal cleansing program improves the dry skin brushing’s effectiveness.
Lymph Mucoid Waste
It is not uncommon for one’s stools to contain large amounts of lymph mucoid a day or two after an initial skin brushing. The lymph dumps into the colon and this is another reason why it is so important to keep the colon clean. Lymphatic cleansing requires continuous dedication, consumption of sufficient water and daily exercise. The lymph system has no pump to speak of, except the major muscles like the calf muscles to move it along. Therefore, it is also recommended to walk for 30 minutes or more a day to aid in preventing a stagnant build-up of the lymph.
Lymph mucoid will also begin to appear in one’s stool as soon as colon cleansing proceeds far enough to relieve the pressure from the mucoid matter backed up in the lymph system. Its general appearance is like that of petroleum jelly and it may vary in color from clear to yellow or dark brown. Lymph mucoid may have a jelly-like consistency rather than the sticky consistency of the alimentary tract mucoid. It can pass through the colon with little tendency to cause constipation and be expelled before it becomes appreciably dehydrated. When lymph mucoid does get trapped in the colon, it eventually hardens along with the rest of the stagnant material. So, to completely cleanse the lymph system, follow the above recommendations for an extended period of time: Exercise, drink lots of water and practice dry skin brushing.
