Let me share with you the importance of moving the lymphatic system on a daily basis. I’ve been a massage therapist specializing in lymphatic drainage since 1996, having worked with clients utilizing manual lymphatic drainage massage. In 2010, France Robert introduced me to bio electric lymphatic drainage, and I saw a remarkable response in my clients’ health. In my quest to educate myself, I sought out the answers I needed to understand why and how this was happening. I discovered The Academy of Lymphology and the work of Dr. Samuel West, DN, ND. His discovery shaped the foundation for my work with clients today and what inspired me to create the Iyasu N.D.E. Health Program.
In his book “The Golden Seven Plus One,” Dr. West explains the blood protein research and its impact on our body. Please take the time to read this and educate yourself because this will help explain why we must eat healthfully, move our lymph, manage our stress, breathe deeply and reduce our fear, anger and resentments.
In order for us to be healthy and vibrant, our cells need to be in a “dry state.” The blood, which is 91% water, carries oxygen and nutrients to the cells, which they must continually receive without obstruction if they are to remain healthy and strong. Blood diffuses out of the capillaries to irrigate cells with oxygen and nutrients at a rate of 3 quarts per minute. Anything that will interfere with this “irrigation” process or the other life processes that take place within the cell will damage or kill the cell and be the cause of inflammation, pain, loss of energy, and all other discomforts and afflictions that we may experience. The only substance that can interfere with the irrigation process, where the cells receive oxygen and nutrients and with other life processes within the cell, are the proteins that make up part of our blood plasma. Until this discovery was made, it was believed our blood proteins were too big to come through the tiny pores of the capillary membranes into the spaces around our cells.1 In other words, what creates a state of dis-ease is when blood proteins escape the blood capillaries and get trapped in between the interstitial spaces (the spaces around the cells) of the cells – see image below.
When this occurs, the following results:
The lymphatic system requires us to move it daily both superficially and muscularly:
What causes blood proteins to leak out of the capillaries and get trapped in between our cells?
Why do the above items cause trapped blood proteins? Anything that “shocks” the body can cause the blood capillaries to dilate, resulting in blood proteins escaping into the spaces between the cells faster than the lymphatic system can remove them.
Therefore, the basis for the Iyasu N.D.E. Health Program consists of:
