A lymphatic system disorder might cause multiple body symptoms. Some of the most common ones are brain fog, neuroinflammation, puffiness, swelling, and edema. Some people struggle to lose body fat or get a lot of mucus symptoms, like leaky eyes, nose, or sinus infections. What is the lymphatic system? The lymphatic system is a network of tubes throughout the body that manage your fluid levels. It is part of two systems, primarily your immune system, which gets rid of waste products. And your body, and then it's also part of your circulatory system. Another great role of the lymphatic system is killing cancer cells every day. Moving and breathing Two things move the lymphatics primarily. These are movement and breathing. To keep the lymphatic system in good condition, you have to constantly move all your body parts, do various exercises, and breathe through your diaphragm. The big six routines for lymph flow To improve the lymph flow, use the big six routines. Start massaging above and below the collarbone, which is point number one. Go in every direction you want as long as you don't cause pain. Spot number two is at the top of the neck on the left and the right, behind the jaw angle and below the lobe of your ear. Next, go to the shoulder joint, the axilla, and the armpit region. Spot four is where you have most of your lymphatics, and that's your abdomen. Number five is the crease of the groin at the hip, and number six is the spot behind the knees.
