THE PITH OF POMEGRANATES AND GRAPEFRUITS HAVE LYMPH-MOVING AGENTS
Want to move lymph through diet; then don’t remove the pith next time you peel a grapefruit or eat a pomegranate. Derivatives from the white part these fruits have constituents such as ‘diosmin’ that naturally decongest the lymphatic system. In fact, ‘diosmin’ seems to affect all the circulatory drains and functions as well giving you another way to improve circulation.
95% OF THE BODY’S SEROTONIN IS MANUFACTURED AND STORED IN THE GUT.
Reducing gut inflammation is key if you are experiencing depression or other symptoms associated with low serotonin levels. To promote a healthy gut flora, the first thing to do is increase your consumption of pre-biotic foods, such as asparagus or fibrous vegetables like raw cabbage and fermented vegetables like kimchee. This will allow the friendly bacteria that are already in your gut to occupy and increasingly populate.

MANY AMERICANS' DIETS ARE LACKING IN HEALTHY OMEGA-3 FATS.
To ensure you are getting enough omega-3s in your diet add wild Alaskan salmon, sardines or anchovies to your diet.
My favorite canned sardines (and beautiful packaging at that) by Jose Gourmet. In LA also available at gjusta.com.
DID YOU KNOW THAT 80% OF WHAT YOUR SKIN LOOKS LIKE ON THE OUTSIDE IS DETERMINED BY THE FUNCTION OF THE SKIN ON THE INSIDE?
Our beautiful outer skin protects, nourishes and detoxifies our body, yet the inner skin does the same. Much of what we spend money and time on is caring for just the surface layer of the skin but we have an intricate skin system that envelops our entire intestinal tract and is responsible for that outer glow and smooth skin appearance we love. When we care for the inner skin in the same manner we do our outer skin, we achieve even greater skin radiance and beauty.
The Body Sculptor and Anti Cellulite oils both feed the micro-biome of the outer skin and deliver purifying botanicals that invigorate the health and function of the inner skin.
STRESS AFFECTS YOUR LYMPH TOO.
80% of premature aging has been linked to stress. Stress not surprisingly congests our lymphatic system. When we experience stress our chemistry changes. We manufacture and secrete an excess of stress-fighting hormones that adrenalize us. But the waste matter of these hormones, known as free radicals, accelerate aging. Stress also puts a strain on our blood pH balance which in turn can lead to digestive issues that slow the lymphatic flow.
