With the change of season and drop in temperature many of us may experience reoccurring colds, chronic sore throat, swollen lymph nodes, sinus inflammation or infection.
Are you confused as to why this may be occurring? You could be experiencing ongoing stress, frequent intake of antibiotics which has disturbed your good bacteria balance, chronic exposure to illness and a sluggish lymphatic system.
A sluggish lymphatic system you say? Did you know that the lymphatic system is an important part of our immune system? It is therefore important to support your lymphatic system by strengthening your immune system.
Why is the lymphatic system important to combating reoccurring colds and infections in the body? This is because the lymphatic system is a defense and drainage system for the body. It filters out organisms that cause disease, produce white blood cells and generates disease fighting antibodies. It also drains excess fluids and debris so that tissues do not swell and become congested or inflamed. When your lymphatic system is sluggish and overburdened you will experience chronic recurring infection, swollen lymph nodes and swelling of the body. It is therefore worthwhile to pay more attention to the lymphatic system in order to support your health.
There are several key herbs which help support the lymphatic system and are as follows:
Sanguinaria, known as the ‘calmer’: reduces inflammation and supports mucous membranes
Echinacea, known as the ‘strengthener’: promotes the immune system and helps infection with fever
Phytolacca, known as the ‘mover’: relieves inflammation of the mucous membranes, especially of the respiratory tract and supports swollen tonsils
Calendula, known as the ‘healer’: reduces inflammation and supports healing.
