Real Health Conversations (Formerly Low-Carb Conversations) is hosted by Holly Jean Mullen, FNTP and features a variety of voices in the world of modern nutrition and health science, expressing many different points of view.

Show your lymph some love! Dayna Marsh joins the show today to talk about the benefits of lymphatic massage. Dayna is a Licensed Massage Therapist, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, and owner of Body Therapy Salt Lake, in Salt Lake City, UT. She offers in person massage therapy sessions and in person or virtual nutritional therapy services.

Lymph, is like blood in that they both are liquids circulating in the body. Unlike red blood’s circular, pumped by the heart movement, lymph moves just one way: out. However, lymph has no organ pump so it’s up to individuals to help move it along.

Lymph is the body’s liquid trash can. It picks up waste products formed from all the chemical reactions needed to keep people alive, ushering them out of the body. 

Besides the congested head, puffy eyes, and swollen ankles that signal lymphatic dysfunction, there are more signs and symptoms of lymph blockages that may not be as obvious as fluid buildup. However, they can be severe lymph-related issues just the same. These signs include: 

  • Bloated stomach or extremities
  • Brain fog
  • Cellulite
  • Chronic headaches 
  • Chronic sinus infections 
  • Constipation
  • Eczema 
  • Excessive sweating
  • Mucus and phlegm production
  • Painful and hard swellings (especially in armpits, groin area, and neck)
  • Sluggishness
  • Stiff or painful joints

Key takeaway from this episode: If you have one or more of these signs of lymphatic blockage, you can’t eliminate toxins, and you’d benefit from supporting your lymphatic system with massage and a variety of other techniques.
