For most of my adult life I yo-yo dieted. Losing weight while I dieted but gaining it back once I started to eat as I did previously. There is a growing problem with obesity, not only in adults but with children also. With all the weight loss programs like Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Miami Beach Diet, plus many others, we still have a problem losing weight. How could we still have weight problems with all of the help that is available to us?
Fat and Obesity Linked to Damaged Lymph Vessels
I have the answer! Most of these weight loss companies are overlooking research that has shown that fat and obesity are linked to damaged lymph vessels. Two studies from 2005 have proven a link between fat and obesity. The lymphatic system is a sewage treatment plant for the body, helping to remove excess fluid, cholesterol, dead cells, fibrin, minerals and other debris that forms fat in the body. Research showed that when the lymphatic vessels in a mouse were damaged it became fat where the damaged vessels were.
The lymphatic system can be damaged by many things, dehydration, excess proteins (dead cells and fibrin), stress, extreme cold, infection, and a sedentary lifestyle to name only a few. What we are missing is how an overly acid internal body could slow lymph flow and lead to weight problems. Most of our diets are acid forming; this excess acid can constrict the lymph vessels and lead to obesity.
Lymphatic Activation Improves Weight Loss
You can gain control of your weight problem by understanding how to balance your body and how to activate your lymphatic system. When you begin activating your lymphatics, you gain control and will see an amazing difference in how you feel. The best part is you can activate your lymphatic system using your own two hands. Since understanding this emerging science 5 years ago, I lost 40 pounds and have not gained it back.
