Lymphatic Enhancement Technology (LET)

Consider the Lymphatic System your essential link to a healthy immunity!

Researchers in the health field have discovered a tool that can assist and amplify the effects of manual lymph drainage, reducing the time and complexity of the therapy. The tool is an electronic device called the Lymphstar Pro®Lymphatic Therapy Instrument. Lymphatic therapists who tried the Lymphstar Pro immediately noted that it could be up to eight times faster at relieving edema and congestion than MLD alone!

The Lymphstar Pro is a therapeutic, vibrational, massage instrument with a unique combination of energetic modalities. They are: 1) physical vibration with sonic, or acoustic, waves, 2) an electro-static field; and 3) electro-pressure created by the use of multiple treatment points. All of these emissions are extremely low in energy so they are gentle and safe. Subtle energies like these may be called “vibrational energy,” as they are at a level more perceptible to the energy system, or bio-field, than more aggressive modalities used to treat the body. However, by their very nature, the lymphatic vessels tune into and respond beautifully to this kind of energy!

The lymphatic system is the most underrated part of our circulatory system. Our bodies contain about 50% more lymphatic fluid than blood, yet sadly many healthcare practitioners/medical organizations rarely consider the critical role lymph plays in preventing disease and keeping us healthy. The lymphatic system has three primary functions. First, its cells are primarily responsible for the immune response of the body. For this reason the lymphatic system is frequently called the immune system. Second, the vessels for the lymphatic system actually represent a separate circulatory system in the human body.

Unlike the cardiovascular circulatory system, the lymphatic system does not directly supply nutrients or oxygen to the tissues of the body, rather is primarily involved in the return of fluids from the tissues which includes the protein-rich fluid that escapes from the circulatory system’s blood vessels. Finally, the lymphatic system is involved in the transport of select nutrients from the digestive system to the circulatory system.

The lymphatic system includes lymph fluid, lymphatic vessels, lymph nodes, lymphocytes, tonsils, the spleen and the thymus gland.

Interesting Facts:

  • The lymphatic system pumps 2-4 liters of lymph each, though the flow rate and volume may vary especially if lymph nodes are removed, damaged or destroyed.
  • The lymphatic system contains about 50% more lymphatic fluid than blood.
  • Your lymphatic system is your primary defense against bacteria, viruses and fungus.
  • Up to ten times as much virus resides in the lymph system as in the blood.
  • Your lymphatic system contains over 600 collection sites called lymph nodes.
  • Most chronic disease occurs at the junction of the lymph vessels called the lymph nodes.
