Easy Lymphatic Cleanse

Is your lymphatic system working correctly? The lymphatic system in your body, one of the seven channels of elimination, is a delicate system that can become bogged down by toxins from your environment and the things you eat such as processed foods. Like digestion, your lymphatic system can help clear out toxins that can cause disease such as cancer, so you want to make sure to keep it running as smoothly as possible.

From The Fat Flush Plan by Ann Louise Gittleman and Barry Sears, try the following protocol:

Cranberry water mixture:

Daily intake:
8 glasses daily

Drinking cranberry water eliminates water retention, removes accumulated toxins from the lymphatic system and helps to reduce cellulite.

Use Woodstock Farms organic unsweetened cranberry juice, Mountain Sun's, Woodstock Farms, Trader Joe's, or Knudsen's. Obtain two empty 32-ounce bottles. Fill each bottle with 4 ounces of cranberry juice and 28 ounces of filtered water. Alternatively, you can purchase Knudsen's or Tree of Life cranberry concentrate and add 1 1/2 tablespoons to each 32-ounce water bottle. It is important to use only unsweetened cranberry juice as some brands add corn syrup or aspartame. Drink these mixtures throughout the day, each and every day.

During and after cleansing, be sure to continue eating a healthy diet replete with fresh fruits and vegetables, grass-fed organic meats, raw, organic dairy, raw nuts and seeds, healthy oils such as olive, coconut, and grapeseed. Elimination of procesed foods, refined sugars, and foods with additives, chemicals, hormones, steroids, and antibiotics is a must to support any detoxification or cleansing activity and a healthy body. Also be sure to get plenty of moderate exercise, rest, and stress relief.
