This will be part of an important video coaching series that I plan to continue on the significance of the great lymphatic system in health, nutrition, lifestyle, fitness and so much more! See the video above for how to use this POWERFULL and simple practice in your daily routine!
, also known as hydropathy is one of the most ancient therapeutic healing practices known to man. Even other species such as the Japanese Macaque regularly partake in the benefits and pleasures of hydropathy as they soak in the hot springs while also enduring the extreme winter weather. “Hydrotherapy involves the use of water for overall health maintenance, detoxification and treatment of disease . The term encompasses a broad range of approaches and therapeutic methods that take advantage of the physical properties of water, such as temperature and pressure, for therapeutic purposes, to stimulate blood circulation and treat the symptoms of certain diseases “Hydrotherapy is used to treat many illnesses and conditions including:
- stomach problems
- joint, muscle, and nerve problems
- sleep disorders
It is also commonly used for relaxation and to maintain a person’s state of health. Hydrotherapy is also excellent for reducing or relieving sudden or long-lasting pain.
Benefits of Hydrotherapy
The benefits of hydrotherapy include:
- dramatically increasing the elimination of waste, thus assisting detoxification
- loosening tense, tight muscles and encouraging relaxation
- increasing the metabolic rate and digestion activity
- hydrating the cells, improving skin and muscle tone
- boosting the immune system, allowing it to function more efficiently
- improving the function of the internal organs by stimulating their blood supply” If you have severe conditions, make sure to consult with your physician beforehand.

These cause changes in blood flow and associated metabolic functions, via physiological mechanisms, including those of It makes use of the body’s reaction to hot and cold stimuli, to the protracted application of heat, to the pressure exerted by the water, and to the sensation of the water itself. Nerves carry what is felt by the skin deeper into the body, where it is then vital in stimulating the immune system, influencing the production of stress hormones, improving circulation and digestion, encouraging the flow of blood, and lessening the body’s sensitivity to pain.
All of nature pulses between polarities and seeks rest at the equilibrium between those polarities. The controlled fluctuation between extreme temperatures helps extend our capacity to sink even deeper into the state of balance, neutrality and stability between those extremes and helps us strengthen our nerves, on the mental, emotional, and physical level, in order to harness greater strength, endurance and stamina, as well as handle greater amounts of stress in our lives.
Training our bodies to thermoregulate under extremes, involves a hard reset of the Autonomic nervous system.
Generally speaking, heat is used to calm, relax, quiet and soothe the body, and to slow down the activity of internal organs. Cold is used to stimulate and invigorate, increasing internal activity within the body, boosting metabolism and Body temperature is highly dependent on the amount of thyroid hormone in the body. Hypothyroid people feel cold all the time (when others are not), and hyperthyroid people feel hot all the time (others are comfortable). Their metabolism reflects this too, with untreated hyperthyroidism leading to weight loss, and untreated hypothyroidism usually leading to weight gain.These responses involve the polarities of both the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.
The Sympathetic nervous system relays the active (masculine) principle of “fight or flight” reaction to external stimuli regulated by the adrenal glands, while the parasympathetic system controls the passive (feminine) “rest and digest” principle of regeneration, relaxation, and repair. Both of these responses are essential for healthy lifestyle functioning and they need to be in equilibrium. This is what the alternating temperatures can assist with. Alternating between the extremes of temperature, we can build our tolerance and stability for operating optimally between the extremes of life.
How the Body Affects the Mind:
The innervates critical organs, such as the heart and lungs, making clear the importance of this nerve in controlling the heart rate, digesting food, and regulating breathing, all of which can be strengthened and improved with hydrothermal therapy. This is because the vagus nerve provides parasympathetic support to the cardiovascular system. ” It supplies parasympathetic fibers to these organs, meaning that the vagus nerve is a “rest and digest” nerve, not a fight or flight nerve. Van der Kolk quotes from Darwin’s work, “the heart, guts and brain communicate intimately via a nerve” – the pneumogastric or vagus nerve – “the critical nerve in the expression and management of emotions in both humans and animals…. When the mind is strongly excited it instantly affects the state of the viscera.” This is, of course, why our guts react strongly to our emotional state.”
Stimulating The Immune System
The body’s greatest factor in health is the lymphatic system, also known as the IMMUNE SYSTEM. The lymph system composes around 75% of the body’s major fluids while the blood only composes around 25%. The blood is the body’s kitchen or nutrient delivery system to the cells, while the lymph is the cells’ waste or sewer system. The Lymph system does not have a pump to circulate lymph like the cardiovascular system does. The ONLY way to move lymph is to pump it manually with frequent and consistent body movement, exercise, rebounding, massage, dry skin brushing, stretching, pressure mediations and fluctuation between hot and cold, and frequent sweating. When the lymph system begins to stagnate, it thickens, hardens and becomes like a plaque, causing swollen and hardened lymph nodes and fibroids and is the underlying root cause of pretty much every chronic condition.
More Information on Detoxification:
Diet and lifestyle play the biggest role in lymphatic stagnation.
The lymph transports acidic metabolic waste products from the cells and sequesters pathogenic viruses and bacteria into the lymph nodes, which are the septic tanks of the body. To use a metaphor, when your sewer or septic system becomes full, it will begin to back up and overflow into the kitchen, which is exactly what happens with lymphatic stagnation. when consumed in too high quantities and the wrong type of protein. PERIOD! Anyone that tries to tell you otherwise, is seriously disinformed. see the full article and presentation on that here> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2R07FL1wVo4
There is no such thing as an “ESSENTIAL PROTEIN.” What the body utilizes are essential AMINO ACIDS, which are the building block of protein. When we consume too much protein in general, but especially , then the kidneys have to overwork themselves to BREAK DOWN all that protein into their AMINO ACIDS in order to even utilize them to synthesize our own endogenous proteins which are what builds our body, and this requires massive amounts of energy which stimulates the adrenal glands and causes them to go “hyper” active, which is the acute stage of disease progression, and eventually burns them out from being hyper active, conversely, causing adrenal fatigue as they then begin to underperform in the “hypo” stage during chronic progression, which eventually causes and the body is no longer able to adequately filter its acidic load as well as its toxic and pathogenic load which has been sequestered from the healthy cells by the lymph system. This then causes undigested protein molecules to begin to stagnate the lymph and back up into the interstitial spaces between the cells and into the bloodstream, causing where it then causes strokes, Alzheimers and neurodegenerative diseases.
From the University of Virginia’s article: “The unexpected presence of the lymphatic vessels raises a tremendous number of questions tht now need answers, both about the workings of the brain and the diseases that plague it. For example, take Alzheimer’s disease. “ ” He noted that the vessels look different with age, so the role that they play in aging is another avenue to explore. And there’s an enormous array of other neurological diseases, from autism to multiple sclerosis, that must be reconsidered in light of the peresenc eof soemthing science insisted did not exist.”
