Did you know that a natural detoxification process was built right into our very own DNA? Both the liver and lymphatic system guide harmful toxins for healthy elimination. At Drop It, we incorporate a comprehensive detoxification program with our homeopathic drops to further support your weight loss program. Follow along as we expand on the beautiful functions of the liver and lymphatic system, and address ways to keep them functioning properly!
The Liver and Lymphatic System
When we carry around extra weight in the form of fat, we can bear harmful chemicals and toxins in our fat cells. This creates an issue when we have an abundance of fat and are not properly detoxing through our inbuilt systems such as the lymph and liver. The toxins remain in our bodies and can cause inflammation and immune health issues. To support healthy inflammation levels and modulate your immune system, losing weight through fat loss will not only help to balance and revitalize your detoxification organs, but it will also assist in toxin elimination.
The liver is one of the largest organs in the body and acts as a detoxification mechanism by processing everything you consume, with exception of some fat particles. Liver enzymes work tirelessly to both metabolize particles and eliminate harmful substances.
The lymphatic system is a circuitry of vessels that travel head-to-toe to drain the lymph fluid from different regions of the body. The lymph system circulates the body and travels the bloodstream, only to circulate the body once again. The lymph carries white blood cells to help defend against disease and bacteria but when the lymph fluid is overcome with toxins, it creates a dysbiosis and to function properly again, the toxins need to be discarded.
As examined above, the liver and lymph play a crucial role in our bodies ability to naturally detoxify and when everything is in balance the body can remain healthy, but when it becomes stagnant with excess fat and toxins, it creates health concerns.
The optimal way to restore your detox system is through fat loss and a weight loss program. While you’re working with Drop it, there are additional steps you can take to replenish a sluggish liver and lymph system.

Jumping on a small stationary trampoline at home or jumping with your kids, is more moderate movement, but it really does wonders for circulating your lymph.
A lymphatic massage will also greatly benefit your lymph, as a trained massage therapist can knead and manipulate specific lymph nodes and the vessels that carry the lymph fluid.
Sweating is also beneficial so exercising or sitting in a steam room or sauna aids in detoxification. These mechanisms raise your body temperature and accelerate your heart rate to get the fluid moving and pumping.
