Lymph System Animation by Fusion Four Design

The Lymphatic System - Unlike your cardiovascular system which has a pump (heart) to circulate the blood through your body, your lymphatic system relies on the many factors to circulate the lymph fluid (lymphatic loads such as protein, water, cellular components and particles, and fat) throughout your body. The lymphatic system represents an accessory route by which lymph fluid can flow from the tissue spaces into the bloodstream. En route to the Venus circulation, lymph travels through successive lymph nodes, thereby filtering the impurities from the lymph fluid.

The cardiovascular system is closely associated with the lymphatic system. The commonalities between the two systems include: superficial, deep and organ systems, similar vessel structure, leukocytes (both systems contain monocytes and lymphocytes), blood plasma (the lymphatic system returns percolated or filtered blood plasma to the bloodstream), serum proteins (lower concentrations in the lymphatic system), common pathways to the heart, and protection of the body from infection and disease.

The main two differences between the two systems include: the lymphatic system in not a closed circulatory system. It is therefore more appropriate to speak of lymph transport rather than lymph circulation, there is no central pump in the lymphatic system, and the lymph transport is interrupted by lymph nodes.

The lymphatic system is divided into the superficial and deep layers and is separated by the fascia (connecting the skin to the underlying tissue). The superficial (suprafascial) layer is responsible for the drainage of skin and subcutaneous tissue, whereas the deep (subfascial) lymphatic system drains the lymph from muscle tissue, tendon sheaths, nervous tissues, periosteum, and joint structures (some distal joints on the extremities drain via the superficial layer). The transport vessels of the superficial system are embedded in the subcutaneous fatty tissue: deep transport vessels generally accompany blood vessels and are grouped together with them in the same membranes. Perforating vessels connect the deep with the superficial system. The lymphatic system of the internal organs represents a subcategory of the deep system.

So we can conclude that your lymphatic system is actually a vital circulatory system with an extensive network of vessels throughout the body. Your body contains about 50% more lymphatic fluid than blood and your lymphatic system contains over 600 collection sites called lymph nodes. These nodes are formed at the junction sites of the lymph vessel network. Your lymphatic system is responsible for supplying plasma rich protein to your blood as well as carrying away toxins and other debris.

Your lymphatic system is your primary defense against bacteria, viruses and fungus and primarily responsible for your immune function. Most chronic disease problems occur at the junction of lymph vessels called lymph nodes. In men, the inguinal nodes in the crease of the groin are the primary channel for release of accumulated lymph from the prostate. In women, the axillary nodes, located in the armpit, are the primary channel for releasing accumulated lymph from the breasts. As we mentioned before, unlike your venous system, your lymphatic system has no pumping mechanism to keep the fluid circulating through the body. Therefore, the lymphatic system is always at a higher risk for blockage. Blockages can occur from normal life stressors such as; illnesses, tight fitting clothing including ties, bras, jockey shorts and pantyhose' lack of exercise, bumps, bruises and other injuries, exposure to heavy metals, pesticides and herbicides, food allergies or sensitivities, and surgery.

An Impaired lymphatic system often results in colds, flu and sinus problems, edema and excess water retention, heart disease, fibrocystic and tender breasts, cellulite, enlarged prostate and even cancer. The good news is that lymphatic health can be restored even in cases of severe impairment using our Lymphatic Decongestive Therapy utilizing IGII or in our case the Lymph Drainage XP™ family of instruments.

In our experience, the various manual lymphatic methods available to therapists do a reasonable, to good job of opening the surface lymphatic using a therapeutic technique known as manual lymph drainage developed in Europe 25 years ago. Through delicate massaging techniques it was highly effective at reducing lymph-based disorders, but the process is very labor intensive The tradeoff is that the deeper lymphatic channels can become more stressed and engorged with the additional lymph forced into this area. This can be very detrimental to the improvement we are seeking.

We have tried several machines over the years, but the Lymph Drainage XP™ has proven
to provide the most effective tool to help stimulate blocked lymph buildup and effectively reduces swelling and edema caused by trapped proteins.

Lymph Drainage HE, XP, XP2 Instrumentation Technology Background:

In the 1940’s Edgar Cayce developed an inert gas ionization instrument (IGII™) known as the Violet Ray using the ionization of the inert gas Argon. Edgar’s instrument used a coil invented by Nicola Tesla (Tesla Coil) to produce a safe high voltage electrostatic discharge (without the dangerous current) producing enough voltage to ionize the argon in a glass tube. Edgar's Violet Ray attributed many health benefits to his device and the Violet Ray is still in use and manufactured today. We refer to this type technology as (IGII™ or Inert Gas Ionization Instruments) in our discussion on this technology.

In the late 80’s and 90’s many newer refinements were made with this IGII™ technology by adding other inert gasses such as Neon and changing the broadcast function of the circuitry used to drive the Tesla coil. This led to improvements in the results for the therapies used with this instrument but with some limitations after long term use. First it was discovered that the Neon gas actually suppressed the immune system and many manufacturers chose to eliminate this inexpensive gas from their Inert Gas Ionization Instruments. It was also observed that the clients receiving the therapy would begin to adapt to the redundant signal that was processed to the head (also referred to as a transmission head) and would occur after approximately 21 days. To overcome this limitation some engineers began to change the signal processing to produce a more complex, non-repeating output signal. Others chose to add Rife frequencies to their circuitry plan in order to improve the benefit of the instruments and in an attempt to take advantage of the highly controversial Rife claims. Because of the widespread claims made by Rife technology (over 135,000 pages on Google™) the FDA initiated a crack down on the use of, mention of, or any claims regarding the use of, this technology. Disclaimer on Rife and FDA: For more information about the works of Royal Rife, and the FDA we urge you to examine the entire story from both perspectives and it’s not the purpose of this discussion to validate or argue either’s position on this topic.

In the years to follow many variations of the (IGII) Inert Gas Ionization Instruments have appeared on the market place all of which showing conclusive results with increasing the lymphatic flow especially with the adaptation of lymphatic decongestive therapy.

In 2007, Therapeutic BioSystems, LLC™ manufacturer of the Lymph Drainage XP™ family of instruments contracted Sky-David (who has been involved in the technology for over 30 years, a biologist, and PhD in Physical Therapy) to develop a newer and more advanced version of the existing technology that was currently being offered through other manufacturers and engineers. As part of the criteria, and based on Sky’s ongoing research in this photobiology field, they focused on the use of Xenon, Argon and Krypton for the inert gases used in the transmission head and tested several pressure variations within the glass bulb for maximum delivery and biological compatibility. For a great reference on the discussion of Xenon and Krypton in human tissue you can read the book, Einstein Doesn't Work Here Anymore by Maurice B. Cooke. Although controversial, (as the case with most things these days) in this book there is a lot of research regarding the biological compatibility of Xenon with human tissue and Krypton as a catalyst. To further enhance the transmission effect and as a precaution, Therapeutic BioSystems, LLC specified the glass bulb that contains the gasses to be manufactured from unleaded glass making certain no heavy metals could be transmitted during the ionization process. Additionally, they used a poly carbonate case for the transmission head and no glue or adhesive to insure toxins are not leached out during therapy due to the ozone produced during ionization. The most significant change was in proprietary circuitry scheme of the Lymph Drainage XP™ family of instruments which utilize a randomized complex signal envelope with emphasis on the attack and delivery of the signal transmitted to the transmission head. With the more prominent attack wave the vibration produced can be compared to a jack hammer busting up concrete (fibrotic and trapped proteins) with the added flexibility of tuning down the attack for a more subtle sweep (superficial). This complex circuitry scheme is responsible for the overall effectiveness of the ability to move stagnate or fibrotic lymph in the lymph system without overstressing the lymph vessels. Lymph vessels can be differentiated between lymph capillaries, pre collectors, lymph collectors, and lymphatic trunks.

How does Inert Gas Ionization Instruments work on the body? Inert elements have the same amount of protons and electrons so they cannot interact molecularly with any other element thus they remain in their elemental state and do not form molecules. This is what gives them their unique properties (inert). The Inert Gas Ionization Instruments (IGII) high voltage discharge excites the electrons causing these electrons to jump into an outer orbit. When this occurs the atom has to go back to stability or back to its natural state. This return to stability is given off as radiant energy through the transmission head which would be technically called a transducer (transducers change or transform energy). This radiant energy is given off through a combination of light, sound vibrations and through the flow of electrons (also known as ionization) which is discharged into the nearest ground (living body tissue). This effect is far more biologically compatible through the transduction of the Inert Gas Ionization process than say having broadcast at low voltages into metal plates, such as an ultra sound. The reason for this is that inert elements create a buffering effect in the exchange of energy in the ionization of the inert gases rather than the direct RF transmission created by the actual circuitry of the instrument. The effect created by the light & sound vibration and flow of electrons as they are ionized through the transmission head cause a disassociation of the trapped proteins within the interstitium. Trapped proteins in the interstitium hold water and cause swelling and blockage as the thread like vessels swell beyond their capacity, and can no longer effectively pass along the lymph through its normal means of transport in the lymphatic system. Trapped proteins (not to be confused with nutrient proteins) are highly electrical in nature and when they are exposed to the discharging ions in the transmission head they become disassociation and release their bond between themselves then releasing the stagnate lymph. This allows the lymph vessels to release the excess blocked, stagnate or retained fluid and to flow out into its normal filtration and reabsorption channels.

As we can see the use of a Inert Gas Ionization Instrument in conjunction with the proper therapeutic techniques can provide results far beyond that of manual lymph manipulation or use of tight fitting garments by addressing the trapped and sticky proteins directly.
