The Missing Link of health & disease The kidneys, interstitium & lymphatic system
Throughout my 8 years of research, I have never come across subjects as misunderstood as the lymphatic system and the interstitial fluid (interstitium). Both have been completely ignored by medicine, but I can guarantee you they will become the hottest subject around very soon as they are at the heart of health & disease.
The lymphatic system & interstitial health
The lymphatic system primarily consists of an intricate network of lymphatic vessels, lymph nodes and organs, bone marrow, tonsils, adenoids, the spleen, mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) and the thymus. The lymph vessels are similar to the capillaries and larger blood vessels of the venous circulatory system, but instead of transporting blood these vessels carry lymph. Lymph is a clear to white milky fluid that is often referred to as plasma-like, as the plasma seeps out through the venous capillary walls and enters the interstitial fluid surrounding the cells.
Cellular waste, toxins, pathogens and unwanted proteins are deposited by the cell into the interstitial fluid surrounding it, which acts as the cell’s dumping ground for whatever it does not want or need. As the waste deposited into the interstitial fluid by the cells is too big to re-enter the venous (blood) capillaries they are drained out of the interstitial fluid by the larger lymphatic vessels and carried off towards the lymph nodes. Some of this waste is decomposed by white blood cells and bacteria and the rest is excreted out of the body through the lungs during respiration, the skin from transpiration and the kidneys through urination.
It is important to note here that virtually all of this waste material is acidic in nature. Should this acidic waste remain in the interstitial fluid surrounding the cell it would eventually damage the cell, and it is precisely this situation that creates the unhealthy cellular environment that creates all disease. This state is called interstital acidosis.
To eliminate disease and restore health it is essential to hydrate the lymph and restore its correct flow, to ensure that the metabolic waste is drained correctly from the body. If not, these acidic wastes accumulate in the lymphatic system and the interstitial fluid, where they stagnate and irritate the outer skin and mucosa of the internal organs creating inflammation, changes in microbiome, mineral deficiencies and genetic mutations, all of which impair cellular function.
Our kidneys house the body's water recycling system, the kidney tubules. Water is at the origin of not only life, but also health and disease.
Kidney damage or agrenal stress due to physical, chemical or emotional stress reduces the ability of the kidneys to hydrate the body's fluid, meaning congestion of these fluids occur leading to blood clotting, congested lymph...
When it comes to health or disease it is simply a question of water, because water means energy. Health and disease are not just about what you eat, nor what you drink. Yes, nutrition, genetics, lymphatics, the kidneys, lack of sleep, stress and the microbiome are all pieces of the greater health puzzle, but what do they all have in common? I believe that Nobel Prize laureate Albert Szent-Györgyi got it right when he said that health is a state of high electron flow and disease is a state of low electron flow. Electron flow is the measure of energy. What all these triggers have in common is how they affect the body’s energy.
Energy is the foundation of life. Health and disease are just different energy states somewhere in between life (energy abundance) and death (energy depletion). The energy that creates life and health are electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs). Natural occurring EMFs lead us up the ladder of health, whereas artificial electromagnetic frequencies, or obstruction of the energy flow causes energy depletion, leading us down the ladder of disease.
The kidney tubules are at the origin of all disease. In order to restore health it is essential to restore correct kidney function.
