Did you know our lymphatic system aids the immune system in our bodies to remove and destroy waste, pathogens, toxins, and dead blood cells? It also absorbs fats and fat-soluble vitamins from the digestive system delivering the nutrients to the cells of the body where they are needed. Have you considered the significance of the lymphatic system and its connection to your overall well-being?
The lymphatic system is a complex network of tissues, vessels, and organs that helps regulate fluid balance and fight infection. In turn, the vessels drain excess fluid from these tissues and return it back to circulating blood. Taking in proper nutrients and following a healthy diet regimen is important to help the immune system stay strong. It is recommended that everyone should have their lymph system cleansed from all the excess “waste” that has built up during a lifetime.
Some of the problems a proper lymph cleansing can help include: inflamed lymph nodes, high cholesterol, headaches, colds, sinus problems, weak immune system, skin issues, and chronic fatigue. Take a look at Hanna’s powerful home remedies to cleanse your body’s lymph system!
Hanna’s Home Remedy to “Cleanse” the Lymphatic System
Barley: Boil 3 tablespoons barley in one quart of water for 30 minutes. Add a little clove or cinnamon to taste and drink this in one day to clear lymphatic congestion.
Applewhey: Add 1 pint apple juice, 1 pint water, and 1 pint milk to a pot and slowly heat but do not bring to a boil. After the fluid curdles, strain it through a fine cloth, throw the curds away, and sweeten the remaining liquid with honey. Take 2 tablespoons approximately 5 times a day if you are very weak (your appetite and strength should return soon).
Cucumbers: Drink 4 to 5 cups of cucumber juice daily for one week to purify the system while cleansing your blood and clearing your complexion.

Hanna’s Helpful Lymphatic System Cleansing Products
Hanna created a special tea, LYM (Lymph), that’s simple in nature but powerful to support the lymphatic system. Red clover flowers and Chaparral herb are the only two ingredients in this product. In addition, Red Clover is one of the world’s oldest herbal remedies and a favorite to address blood and lymph health. Chaparral plays an important role in this tea because it supports the function of the Red Clover and assists the body in flushing out the lymphatic system (if you have liver disease, you should consult your physician before using any product containing Chaparral).
The Lymph Cleanse Blend by EnerHealth is a refreshing combination of Cleavers, Echinacea, Ocotillo bark, Dandelion root, and Red root. This tincture can be helpful for those suffering with tonsillitis, swollen glands, lymphatic congestion, infections, and it provides a nice boost to the immune system.
For decades Hanna taught us the importance of and “how to” properly cleanse and decongest our lymphatic system and wrote about the key points of the body and what to focus on when wishing to “flush” the lymphatic system of impurities, in her book New Dimensions in Healing Yourself. If you’re interested in learning more about other cleansing and home remedies like the one’s listed above, we offer a variety of topics included in some of Hanna’s best-selling books.
