The Lymph Cleanse & Renew Protocol*
Our lymphatic system is possibly the most important system for good health, yet the most ignored. Among its many functions include removal of all cellular waste, especially from our immune system. It’s comprised of tonsils/adenoids, lymph nodes, and vessels (there’s more lymph than blood vessels!), but also the spleen, liver, intestines, kidney, and brain. In fact, the lymph system supports every cell.
Chronically poor lymph function is a silent, unseen process until there’s abnormal lab markers or swollen lymph nodes. Deeper insight shows lymph stress can be bad skin, swelling, fatigue, weak vision, brain fog, body odor, frequent infections, lumps, bumps, tumors, and more. Optimal lymphatic integrity is required for health recovery and optimal cell vitality.
Other than trauma, surgery, acute illness, and certain RX medications, poor lymphatic integrity is often due to one or more of the following:
- Toxins or Chronic Pathogen load
- Cellular Acidity & Low Cell Oxygen
- Reduced Cellular Mitochondria (or function)
- Organ Weakness of Intestines, Liver/Gallbladder, or Kidneys
- Sedentary Lifestyle
SOLUTION: The HealthQuest Lymph Cleanse & Renew Protocol
Our unique protocol targets areas of weakness and dysfunction, and restores dynamic health and vitality to our complete lymphatic system. The goals are:
1) Reduce Toxin & Pathogen Load
2) Alkalize the Body
3) Increase Mitochondrial Number & Function (increase cell energy/voltage)
4) Enhance Cellular & Organ Waste Removal

The Lymph Cleanse & Renew Protocol
Consists of 3 Parts
1) TARGETED NUTRITION
A) Diet – Read and follow my Food for A Healthy Life article on my website, found under the Learning Center. This is a plant-based diet based on years of research and evidence from all over the world. It’s not just for lymphatic health, but helps restore cellular vitality for the rest of your life. Note: for severe conditions, add more astringent, electrical, high-energy foods like red or purple grapes, citrus, melons, and berries every day.
B) Targeted Lymph Organ Support – These are the liver, gallbladder, intestines, and kidneys. Follow suggestions for each organ (dose is as directed on bottles), and as many of the foods as you’re able.
Liver/Gallbladder support includes *Liver Formula tablets; the spices turmeric, fenugreek, cumin, and fennel; eat more arugula, kale, beets, radish, artichokes, shitake/maitake/reishi mushrooms, lemon, celery, cucumber, spinach, red apple, purple potato.
Intestine support includes *GI Fortify Powder or *Triphala tablets; wild berries of all types; aloe vera (as gel or liquid); fermented foods (raw apple cider vinegar, kimchi,sauerkraut, miso, Kevita® fermented coconut water, kombucha tea).
Kidney support: follow the diet article; eat the astringent, high-energy foods listed under diet in ‘A’, above; eat parsley, asparagus, celery; stay well hydrated with pure water; nettle or dandelion teas are wonderful for the kidneys.
C) Lymph Drainage & Support – Take an herbal product OR a homeopathic drainage formula to assist cellular waste removal.
Herbals: *Blood Cleanse tablets. If you prefer liquid, *Flor Essence tea (Essiac).
Homeopathics: *Body Anew homeopathic liquid kit.
IMPORTANT: * These products are available on our website Virtual Pharmacy at 20% off. *Liver Formula by Banyan Botanicals (code: LIV11). *GI Fortify by Pure Encapsulations (code: GIFOR). *Triphala by Banyan Botancals (code: TRIP4). *Blood Cleanse by Banyan Botanicals (code: BLO11). *Flor Essence by Flora (code: F80728). *Body Anew kit by MediNatura (code: M20118).

2) HOME THERAPY
Choose one or more of these ‘at home’ therapies. Chronic or serious conditions may benefit from all of the following, however, do whatever you feel comfortable in performing regularly. * = Best Choices
A) *Neuro-Lymphatic Reflex point massage. See my website article for the document with diagram and instructions. Perform 2-3x weekly.
B) Dry Skin Brushing. See my website article for details. Perform 2x/week or more. Just don’t overdo it or your skin can get irritated.
C) Castor Oil Packs. Apply to any area of concern. Great for any local organ or gland issue. See my website article for instructions and details. Perform 2-3x/weekly.
D) Dry Sauna. See my website article for details, or go to my favorite sauna company websites: sunlighten.com, or infraredsauna.com, or synergysauna.com.
If not able to purchase your own sauna, try health clubs, gyms, or spas.
E) *Rebounding. A rebounder (mini-trampolene) is fantastic and fun!
F) Foam rolling. This is easily demonstrated on youtube. A powerful option is the vibration foam roller – the Vyper 2.0, available at hyperice.com.
G) Coffee Enemas. See my website article titled Coffee Enema Procedure.
H) *Exercise. Any movement is good, as the lymphatic system does not have the benefit of a motor such as the heart, so it depends on movement (active or passive). If pain or disability is involved, consider gentle yoga, stretching, or Tai Chi. If for any reason, you are unable to perform exercise, see ‘Clinic or Outside Therapies’ below, which become even MORE important than they are already.
I) Massage. This is a wonderful passive method to move lymph flow. Most all massage is good for lymph, but a lighter, broad-contact technique, with strokes directed toward the heart is preferred. For more info, see www.vodderschool.com.
3) CLINIC THERAPY
The deepest & strongest of all therapies.
Restoring cell energy or voltage is crucial! Toxins, pathogen load, acidic diets, and sluggish organ function all reduce cell mitochondria number and function. Mitochondria is critical for the production of ATP – the primary currency of our cells. Why does this matter?
↑ ATP = ↑ Cell Energy = ↑ Lymph Health
The LightMD transmits 2 forms of healing & revitalizing energy to every cell in the body. It’s easy, painless, and relaxing. We are one of the few clinics in Northern California with this advanced technology. Don’t confuse LightMD device with most of the cheap, commercial light systems available online. They don’t have the same optical power density, treatment surface surface area, nor the extensive library of healing frequencies that LightMD uses! Use it once a week for general purposes, or 3x/week for advanced or serious conditions. Check out www.LightMD.com.
IMPORTANT! Start slow on the Lymph Cleanse & Renew Protocol. Lymph drainage and removal of cellular waste can elicit ‘detox’ symptoms such as headache, rash, joint pains, low energy, or others. For Targeted Nutrition, consider starting at ½ dosage, and maybe start with just two of the Home Therapies. Increase as you’re able. As with all new products or therapies, if adverse reactions occur, stop for a few days, then try at ½ amount. Remember to drink lots of pure water! Duration of the Protocol can be weeks or months, depending on the person and the condition.
