Did you know we have more lymphatic fluids in our body than blood?
Yup! And the Lymphatic system is extremely important in protecting our body from harmful elements that get into your body.
The lymphatics don’t have a system that moves the fluid like the veins, the movement we get in the lymphatics system is moved by us. We have to walk, run, jump or otherwise actively stimulate our lymphatic system.
By definition – The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that help rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. The primary function of the lymphatic system is to transport lymph, a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells, throughout the body. The vessels are connected to lymph nodes, where the lymph is filtered. The tonsils, adenoids, spleen and thymus are all part of the lymphatic system. (1)
Lumps and bumps in the lymphatics can be things that your body is protecting you from.
Lymphatic message or even something as simple as dry brushing is a great way to stimulate the lymph nodes and get them back to functioning normally.
As with any form of detox you are doing with your body it is very important to drink lots of clean water when you are moving lymphatic fluids. Once you move the toxins you have to have a way for your body to get rid of them or you may end up very sick.
I found this video -vlog very interesting by Dr Eric Berg DC.
It sounds like many of us old and young have some level of insulin resistance going on. As we get older and if we have poor diet habits this can turn into some pretty serious stuff – like obesity, type II diabetes and even can contribute to heart disease…
Changing our eating habits is a big must as well. Dr Eric Berg is a big proponent for fasting. I am not sure about that yet as many of us that would only be healthy if we were sure to eat every meal packed with lots of good nutrients. I feel pretty strongly that frequent small nutritious meals or 3 meals and some snacks like nuts, veges and fruits would still be a very healthy life style.
Colloidal silver is tiny particles of elemental silver that have been suspended in water. Generally, the particles are so small, they cannot be detected by the human eye. Their minute size prevents them from settling and helps them to remain in a solution.
Colloidal silver is able to kill off harmful microorganisms without causing harm to beneficial organisms, like probiotic bacteria.
Silver has been used to prevent disease and the spread of harmful bacteria, viruses and fungi for hundreds of years. Silver was used for food storage, flatware and other utensils because it helped prevent food spoilage and disease proliferation. In 1884, a German obstetrician used a silver solution to help prevent gonococcal opthalmia, a condition that causes blindness in newborn babies. Silver was widely used in hospitals to dress wounds and prevent infections, before the advent of antibiotics and synthetic drugs.
Fortunately, colloidal silver has begun to regain its popularity now that the age of antibiotics could reach its end.

Time Challenger Labs International, Inc., maker of Time Challenger Mitochondrial Nutrition systems was recently asked to relate actual instances of product success. This is important since Time Challenger is used by so many around the country and across the world.
Time Challenger was developed over 12 years ago. The base formula was created from information gathered over the Internet and in research journals. It was the first product in the United States to address the problem of depleted mitochondria in our cells, the material which extracts energy from the food we consume. It was noted a few years earlier that aging was in fact a mitochondrial “disease” as the death or mutations of this precious material lead to our eventual demise no matter what ordinary vitamins and herbs we were to consume. The scientific research pointed to special material that, if consumed in the exact ratios and at the proper times and in the correct amounts would restore mitochondrial functions.
Curious title? Yes, but illustrative for our discussion.
Often an analogy serves best to make a point. We will explore three.
In the world of pickles and whisky, a wooden barrel is the ideal storage vessel. Some people even advertise how their liquor or beer is aged in oak barrels. Laudable, as they even claim to make their barrels for that very purpose.
Now, in the construction of a well-made wooden barrel, the pieces known as staves, must be crafted with perfection to make a liquid tight construction. Even these “perfect” staves must be held in place by some external force; metal bands, to maintain integrity. Should some other external force be placed on the barrel, in most cases these bands will resist catastrophic failure. However, should an external force be applied to a single stave, the entire barrel might collapse, as together all are strong but individually, they are not.
The human body’s complex systems are rather like a barrel of wooden staves held together with “bands” of proper diet, exercise, mental well-being, hydration, supplementation and rest.
