Lymph System, Weight Gain and Cancer

My Research and Dedication

Anyone familiar with this blog, knows my story. I was very sick and nursed myself to wellness by what I ate. Using the freedom of the Internet and its search engines, I learned about the power of self-healing.  I am now a new person and feel like I have found the Fountain of Youth.  I have dedicated myself to searching for answers, trying different things on myself and my pets and writing about it. This healing power can be found in all life forms on the Planet Earth including The planet itself.

Modern Medicine and Science

Modern medicine doesn’t seem to be coming up with any answers.  A majority of science has become profit motivated rather than driven by the search for truth. Propaganda and “published scientific proven” data is offered when asked to explain.  Often the term “All scientist agree” is used as proof.  Truth seems to be unknown in the modern world.  Heavy use of chemicals and machines are used with no attempt to even try something natural. Words like Integrity, discovery and fact-finding simply aren’t used.

There has got to be a better way. I am not a researcher, scientist or even highly educated but I can hear, see and watch the world around me.  The more I try different homeopathic herbs the more I am amazed at some of the results.  Science doesn’t know better, your body knows more than you can imagine.   Give it a hand and stand back and watch it perform.

Dr. Moritz’s Research

With that said, I ran into a young alternate health doctor’s research. He was an extremely well-trained and knowledgeable on how the human body works especially how it heals.

He is no longer with us, he died in his early 50s. He had dedicated his short life researching. Maybe he was driven by trying to understand his own debilitating childhood illnesses.

Thanks to the following video by Dr. Moritz, I now have a more complete understanding of how powerful the human body really is.  Without overloading it with toxins the human body easily maintains strength and health.

When your body has become overwhelmed by years and years of toxins it becomes unable to adjust and simply shuts down. In other words it runs out of Oxygen then energy.  The toxins slowly just take over.


Introduction to the Video

I wrote an article on the lymph system. In the  article You Brush Your Hair and Teeth, Why Not Your Skin?  I provided greater detail on the lymph system and illustrate skin brushing techniques used to stimulate the Lymph systems drainage.  This is an update to that article.

Skin Brushing



Before we get to the video I have provided some useful terms and illustrations that helped me better understand what Dr. Moritz is discussing.  His explanation is so simple, I have replayed the Video many times.

Cistema Chyli – Dr. Moritz talks about this as being the largest lymph.  It is located at the belly button.  It receives fatty chyle from the intestines.  When the lymph system absorbs toxins faster than they can be eliminated the lymph node begins to back up and the body stores the toxins in the surrounding fatty tissue along with water.  It is the first sign of toxic buildup.  You will find yourself saying “I’m getting fat”  That is why so many obese people have huge stomachs.



Macrophage cells – Phage means to eat.  A type of White Blood Cell, that engulfs and digest toxins and other things harmful to the body.  This process is called phagocytosis for they eat the toxins.  These cells are all over the body and are part of the bodies adaptive immunity such as the lymphocytes.




Lymphedema Example


An example of Lymphedema – This is hard to believe, but since I’m a nurse I see it all the time. It often involves the whole body.  The normal diagnosis is Obesity no mention of the Lymphatic system inability to drain toxins.  There normally isn’t any cure either. Modern medicine doesn’t have many cures. The condition is treated with diuretics or water pills and ignored. The person just slowly gets bigger and bigger.

This Explanation of Cancer Will Blow You Away!

As promised here is the Video it was Published on Feb 17, 2015

More information at

Iridology – Still practiced today, it is an alternative medicine technique whose proponents claim that colors, and other characteristics of the iris can be examined to determine information about a patient’s systemic health.  Practitioners use iris charts, which divide the iris into zones that correspond to specific parts of the human body.  Iridologists see the eyes as “windows” into the body’s state of health.

The iris – is part of the human eye.  It is responsible for controlling the diameter and size of the pupil and thus the amount of light reaching the retina.  The color of the iris is known as “eye color’
