The usefulness of the spleen has been overlooked in recent times. This seems to be partly due at least to lack of knowledge of the spleen and its functions. However, recent studies have shown that when the spleen is removed there have been some adverse effects such as increased susceptibility to bacteria and protozoa infection.
This is an organ of the body found in almost all vertebrates. It is located just below the left side of the diaphragm. Its functions among others include: ridding the body of old red blood cells and platelets and acting as a blood reservoir; it does this in order to supply blood to the body whenever there are emergencies like a nasty cut.
Steps to take in carrying out Spleen Cleanse
Find below the different steps:
First of all, make sure you drink between eight to twelve cups of water each day together with a sliced lemon wedge. The job of the water is to clean the blood and the spleen, while the lemon helps in cleaning the system of the lymph together with the liver.
The next thing to do is to go for a massage. The massage is very useful in lymphatic system cleansing and providing leverage for lymphatic drainage. The base oil to be used for massaging should have some drops of lemon essential oil added to it; this will further aid cleansing of the spleen.
Also stretch your body every day. Stretching is an excellent way to help the lymph cleanse, it also aids lymphatic drainage.
After you are done with the exercise of stretching yourself, you should take some goldenseal tea; goldenseal can also be taken as a capsule or as a tincture. This will help the system of the lymph and also aid lymphatic cleansing. Always ensure you seek medical advice from qualified professionals before using any herbs, food supplements or drugs.
Finally, make sure you add vegetables and fruits to your diet. In addition to this, also drink vegetable or fruit juice on a stomach that is empty. These food substances and juices contain enzymes and acids that are extremely good for removing toxic substances, wastes and other undesirable elements from the lymphatic system.
I want to encourage you to do more, not just on the subject matter, but even more in the understanding of the spleen and its role(s) in the human body. Spleen detoxification or cleansing can prevent the surgical removal of the spleen which could prevent the many inconveniences that can come when it is eventually removed. The spleen in this wise has been referred to by some as dispensable, but not irrelevant.
