The circulatory (blood) systems includes the heart and an extensive network of blood vessels who's primary function is transporting vital nutrients to body tissues and maintain biological balance (homeostasis). The lymphatic system is part of the circulatory system. It includes a network of lymph node glands and fluid whose primary function is to collect, and transport toxic waste materials out of the body. The lymphatic system is a main player in the detoxification process and a vital part of the immune system. If the blood and lymphatic systems are not kept clean, the immune system is compromised which leaves the body open to a wide variety of illness and disease.

Note: When any of the first three detoxification areas (liver, kidney's, gallbladder) are clogged or closed down with waste materials, the lymphatic and blood systems become saturated with toxic poisons. When the lymphatic and blood systems are saturated with toxic acid wastes, and other waste materials become trapped among the tissue cells causing toxic overload (toxemia).

Lymph nodes are filled with a clear liquid called lymph. This fluid contains proteins and other nutrients to feed cells and remove waste. This fluid surrounds every cell in the body and travels throughout the lymphatic system. It is vital for elimination of waste material (detoxification). Lucky for us there are herbs when used properly, help cleanse both the lymphatic and blood system.

The best solution to a toxic lymphatic and blood system is cleansing the other four areas (colon, gallbladder, liver, and kidneys) that are inhibiting the natural detoxification process. The most effective way to stimulate the movement of the lymphatic system is daily exercise (jumping or rebounding is best). This type of exercise not only stimulates the entire lymphatic system, it promotes rapid detoxification. Hot spas and saunas (sweating) is another excellent way to detoxify the body through the skin. The more toxins removed from the body the fewer toxins will burden the liver and the cleaner the body will be providing that incoming toxins are discontinued.

Lymph, Blood Cleansing Foods:
It's important to avoid consuming fatty, highly refined foods with artificial additives (chemical toxins) during blood and lymph system detoxification.

During the cleanse use alkalizing foods, in a ratio of at least 4:1 over acid-forming foods. Below are foods to eat and not eat for lymphatic and blood system health.

Avoid (All) while Cleansing;
  • Carbohydrates
  • Fatty Foods
  • Simple Sugars
  • Artificial Colors
  • Artificial Flavors
  • Artificial Preservatives
  • Artificial Stabilizers
  • Artificial Chemicals
  • None Organic
  • Cooked
  • Processed

  • Foods Help Clean the Lymph System;
  • Apples
  • Stevia
  • Cranberries
  • Sea Vegetables
  • Blue Green Alga's
  • Green Leafy Vegetables
  • Limes
  • Lemons
  • Melons (All)

  • Lymph, Blood Cleansing Herbs;
  • Red Clover - has been used for years as a lymphatic and blood cleanser. Traditionally, red clover has been used as a liver, nerve, and lung detoxifier as well. Many herbalists recommend red clover when doing a whole body cleanse. Cleansing the blood is important because the blood transports oxygen and nutrients to the vital organs and tissue of the body.
  • Red Root - has also been traditionally used as a cleansing herb by herbalists. This herb can stimulate lymph function and aid in the transport of waste material from the lymph to the liver. Red root has also shown to boost the liver and its vital functions.
  • Echinacea - is another herb research has discovered to be an effective lymphatic and blood purifier. Echinacea extracts can boost the production of interferon and has interferon properties which help fight vital infections. Echinacea is also known to equalize white blood cell count and boost the activity of leukocytes (white blood cells) helping the body fight and destroy toxic invaders in the body. It has shown to boost red blood cell count which helps the body detoxification and it has antiseptic properties which help cleanse and reduce pain in the body from injury.
  • Yellow Dock - is considered a blood purifier by herbalists. Yellow dock can also aid in boosting skin health and can be useful with leprosy, psoriasis, and cancer of the skin. Yellow dock is recommended by herbalists if a person is experiencing anemia, liver problems, skin problems, toxemia, infections, lymph congestion, ulcers, or have wounds that need healing. Some say yellow dock is the best blood builder in the herbal kingdom.
  • Burdock - is a good blood purifier herb and highly valued in the herb kingdom. Burdock can help strengthen the liver, kidneys, stomach and lungs. Burdock’s active constituents have been known to help cleanse the blood of excess waste and uric acid. Burdock is mild diuretic. This herb can also help with problems such as acne, boils, psoriasis, and canker sores.

    Along with these herbs mentioned above, one should begin a cleansing diet at the same time. Before starting a cleansing diet, one should consume ample amounts of liquids, whole grains, fresh fruits & vegetables and juices to help prepare the body. Pomegranate juice has a reputation of providing excellent cleansing properties for the kidney and bladder.

    The first step in a cleansing diet is to eliminate all processed foods, coffee, white sugar, alcohol, tobacco, and red meat. Second, add some cleansing herbs mentioned above either in single or combination formulas made to cleanse the bodies systems. Keep in mind that herbs are very powerful remedies and produce undesirable side effects. There can also be interactions with prescription drugs. If you're taking any drugs, be sure to discuss this with your alternative health doctor before taking any herbal colon cleansing remedies.

    It's wise to not continue usage of a product if you develop diarrhea, excessively loose stools, or abdominal pain. If you develop nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, cramping, joint pains, headache, rashes, irritation in the rectum area or just plain don't feel good, you may be cleansing too quickly and your body is not capable of dealing with it adequately. Discontinue usage if this occurs until you feel better and then resume cleansing at a slower pace.

    1. Quart jar (glass) with rubber seal lid (Mason is excellent)
    2. Blender (any blender that blends fruits and vegetables will work - it's important to blend regularly not to have a designer blender)
    3. Juicer (electric is best)

    Drink at least 8 oz. of blended formula each day to start and increase up to 32-64 oz. (1 qt. or liter) each day for best results.

  • Lymph, Blood Detoxification Program
    The following are prudent steps to a successful lymph, blood cleansing program;
    1. Cleanse your lymphatic and blood systems with a high water content diet filled with raw, fresh fruits and vegetables along with a selection or combination of herbs listed above to clean out all the lymphatic and blood system toxins. The herbs chosen will depend on the amount of lymph toxic buildup and the length of time these toxins have been present. Combine the above with rebounding, cardio type stimulating exercises to activate lymph fluid flow.
    2. While cleansing the lymphatic and blood systems, you should replenish the beneficial bacteria to flora balance, which in turn helps the immune system operate at maximum efficiency.
    3. Move on to the lungs to complete the total internal body cleansing.

    "Illness and disease are optional, choose not to participate" ~ Dr. Skip Hellen

    Important understanding
    It’s important to understand that optimal health can only be achieved and maintained when nutritional, physical, and mental requirements are met resulting in systemic biological balance (homeostasis).

    The following are the cornerstones of success with anything in life, make these qualities an important part of your life strategy and you will achieve excellence in anything you do. 

       Personal responsibility encourages excellence,
    requires personal excellence,
    advances positive action,
    strengthens personal power,
    promotes success ~ Dr. Skip Hellen 

    1. (Develop) a strong sense of self respect and discipline
    2. (Pledge) Take the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledge
    3. (Test) Complete the health assessment test (establish a personal health baseline)
    4. (Decide) Set a goal to achieve personal health excellence (optimal health)
    5. (Education) Learn health principles how to achieve optimum health
    6. (Heath Compass) Buy a pH litmus test kit, start testing frequently – keep a test result log
    7. (Manage/Adjust) Change behavior habits for best results
    8. (Commitment) Stay the course until achieving personal health excellence
    9. (Mentor) Help another achieve personal health excellence

    Since behavior habits and nutrition are critical components of human health and longevity, denial, shortcuts and misguided beliefs can be very costly not only in terms of lost monetary wealth but in compromised health leading to rapid aging, illness, disease and death. DON’T TAKE YOUR HEALTH FOR GRANTED. IF YOU DON’T TAKE PROPER CARE OF YOUR HEALTH, WHO WILL?

    The important thing to remember is consumptive habits (foods) will form the foundation of either optimal health or illness and disease. The old saying "you are what you eat" is absolutely true when it comes to health.

    Developing strong personal character (respect, belief, knowledge, discipline, commitment) are the cornerstones of all personal excellence accomplishments. Taking the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledges and adopting the behavior principles solidifies a vital first step on the road to optimal health success. These pledge commitments not only help develop the skills required to accomplish the goal but better define the path to personal health excellence. The second step is purchasing a litmus test kit to accurately monitor health progress. (see below for event test kit sale)

    Perhaps the hardest part of achieving optimal health is changing unhealthy behavior habits to healthy habits.

    YOU provide the Courage, Dedication, Commitment and Action,
