The lymphatic system is mainly composed of organs and tissues that work in synergy to flush out toxic matter. Since the lymph contains white blood cells and they have a significant role in fighting the infections, it is extremely important to have a healthy lymphatic system.
Symptoms of a congested lymphatic system are: dry skin, hypersensitivity, soreness, itchy skin, feeling tired, brain fog, low immunity, headaches, breast swelling, diarrhea, swollen glands, stiffness in the morning, elevated histamine and irritation, acne, etc. There are many factors that can cause lymphatic congestion, such as: iodine deficiency, stress, constricting clothes, digestive imbalances, etc.
To improve the lymph health you should do a lymphatic detox and you will only need three days to drain the lymphatic fluids. The lymph is mainly made of water so you should drink big amounts of water in order to stay hidrated and avoid improper lymph flow. You can also consume fresh juices, teas and broths.

Exercising is also a good way to detoxify the lymphatic system and you will only need to exercise 15-20 minutes a day.
