It is extremely important that the ¼ inch on the inside of the gut wall has those villi and lacteals functioning well. Also, the ¼ inch on the outside of the gut (which is that lymph tissue) must not be congested.
Then, the lymphatic system around the gut will bring all the absorbed fats back to the liver, which will use the good fats in order to make cholesterol, cell membranes, hormones, brain cells and skin. The liver processes them and marks them for elimination. In the case of a congested lymphatic system, this natural process of using good fats and eliminating bad fats can be severely harmed.
The following are the symptoms of a congested GALT affecting the lymphatic system:
- Breast swelling and tenderness during the menstrual cycle
- Holding extra weight around your belly
- skin irritations or itching
- Joint stiffness
- Swollen hands and feet
- Elimination concerns
- Occasional headaches
