Sign your lymph system is congested:

  • Digestive problems

The lymphatic system is responsible for draining all the toxins and waste in your body. It is often referred to as the sewerage system. To simplify, if a sewerage system does not drain anything out as it should it creates a built up. When your lymph system is congested you will feel more constipated or blotted in the tummy area.

  • Chronic fatigue

When lymph does not drainage properly the body will create a toxin build up, therefore causing fatigue and many other symptoms.

  • Swollen lymph nodes

Clogged lymph drainage system can result in swollen lymph nodes, because lymph fluids can't drain. Lymph nodes are part of the lymphatic system which filters fluids from cells and is an important part of the immune system.

  • Brain fog

A clogged lymphatic system can cause brain fog or a feeling of mental exhaustion and confusion.

  • Pain and aches

Poor lymphatic drainage can cause varicose veins by causing fluids to accumulate in the veins, this changes the structure of the vein walls. This often lead to higher vein pressure and more fluid overflowing into the surrounding tissues.
