PTSD, Self-Lymphatic Activation

Lymph-Brain Connection Study

PTSD is a mental health problem that is affecting many, especially veterans, in great numbers. Researching how maintaining the lymphatic system can affect the brain and help those with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is crucial. LR&EI is researching how veterans diagnosed with PTSD can improve how they feel mentally and physically by self-activating their lymphatic system. By improving flow through the lymph-brain connection we hope to show a reduction in symptoms of anger, self-blame, depression, hopelessness, suicidal thoughts, feeling alone, aches and pain.

In this study we are trying to show how manually activating whole body lymph flow, with extra attention to the lymphatics in the neck, face, mouth and scalp can improve circulation and natural detoxification of damaging acidic wastes from the body and brain.

Important Lymph-Brain Connection

New research in June of 2015 found lymphatic vessels in the brains of mice. That means there is a direct lymphatic system-brain connection. In 2017 researchers found that the major outflow of cerebrospinal fluid is through lymphatic vessels. The lymphatic system helps to maintain every system in the body, even the brain and its many structures. When the lymphatic system becomes congested excess cellular waste and proteins (parts of cells, fibrin and other debris) can build in any part of the body and brain, limiting circulation and function, similar to a log jam clogging a river. Activating the lymphatic system may help remove excess cellular waste by improving circulation and natural detoxification in the body and brain.

 PTSD,  Self-Lymphatic Activation Lymph-Brain Connection Study


Participants need to have a diagnosis of PTSD, with active symptoms. You will be involved in the study for three-months. Your time starts when you attend one of our free lymphatic health classes. There you will learn to use diet, basic supplements, exercise, deep breathing and proper hydration to help improve the lymph-brain connection.  We hope to show how improving lymph flow through the lymph-brain connection can reduce symptoms of anger, self-blame, depression, hopelessness, suicidal thoughts, feeling alone, aches and pain. 

 When starting to improve their lymph flow participants may experience a worsening of symptoms for a few hours to a day. This occurs as released waste congests the organs and central nervous system, slowly the body metabolizes the waste and you feel better.

Guidelines for PTSD, Self-Lymph Activation

Lymph-Brain Connection Study

1.    Participant will be involved with the study for three months.
2.    Participants need to attend the class to understand the basics of the lymphatic system, acid-alkaline balance and have a choice of making dietary changes or not making changes.
3.    The only obligation requested of the participants is to make a few classes, show up on time, activate the lymphatic system at home, work to balance your pH, keep a journal of any changes positive or negative you see. email us journal info monthly and at end of study with what you experienced over the three months during the study.

If you have any questions, or would like to participate in the study contact us.
