Optimizing the Lymphatic System in:
Areas LR&EI is focusing research on how activating the lymphatic system can help:
1- Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) See Study Details
There is a large connection between the lymphatic system and the brain. LR&EI is beginning to research how manually activating the lymph-brain connection in children with ASD can help improve cognitive function, digestive issues, skin problems and behavior. In 2015 researchers found lymphatic vessels in the brain. This is a direct lymph-brain connection that can be used to help how you or a child feels mentally and physically. In 2017 researchers found that the major outflow of cerebrospinal fluid is through lymphatic vessels. If you want to improve the function of the brain you must improve the lymphatic system. LR&EI is beginning to research how manually activating the lymph-brain connection in children with ASD can help improve digestive issues, skin problems, behavior and cognitive function.
2- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) See Study Details
PTSD is a mental health problem that is affecting veterans in great numbers. It can occur after someone goes through a traumatic event like war, assault, tragedy or disaster. LR&EI is researching how manually activating the lymph/brain connection in veterans or those diagnosed with PTSD, can reduce symptoms of anger, self-blame, depression, hopelessness, suicidal thoughts, feeling alone, aches and pain. 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 PTSD is crucial.There is a large connection between the lymphatic system and the brain.
3- Acne See Study Details
The lymphatics play an important role in maintaining your skin and overall health by reabsorbing cellular waste; parts of cells, fibrin, lipids (fats, cholesterol, triglycerides), hormones, lactic acid, uric acid, toxins and other metabolic waste. In this study we are trying to show how manually self-activating whole body lymph flow, with extra lymphatic activation in the neck, face and scalp can improve acne. This improved circulation improves natural detoxification of acidic wastes from the skin to be reabsorbed by the lymphatic system.

Lymphatic System Education Changes Lives!
In 2013 and 2014 studies linked the buildup of b-amyloid plaque (cellular waste) in the brain to sleep disturbances. The lymphatic system plays a large role in reabsorbing cellular waste from cerebrospinal fluid and the brain.
The lymphatic system plays a large role in maintaining healthy digestion. There are approximately 200-300 lymph nodes in the abdomen. Improving lymph flow through these nodes by opening three lymph vessels in the abdomen, called the cisterna chyli, can help keep acidic cellular waste from building in the intestines and colon helping them heal.
Research in 2011 showed that detoxification of Senescent cells, cells that are dead but emitting toxins, can extend health span in mice. The lymphatic system helps keep cellular debris from building in the tissues of the body which can reduce inflammation and aging.
Type 2 Diabetes
In 2014 a UCLA study linked the accumulation of cellular waste in the pancreas to type 2 diabetes. The lymphatic system helps the re-absorption and detoxification of damaging cellular waste, this may also improve the cells ability to utilize insulin more effectively.
In 2005 two-studies linked fat and obesity to damaged lymph vessels. The lymphatic system plays a large role in removing cellular waste and lipids that can accumulate in the body leading to weight gain.
