Treating the Lymphatic System Part 3
Below you have been given some common diseases of the lymphatic system, their causes and identifying symptoms and which essential oil to use as a remedy.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Chronic fatigue syndrome, or, as it is now known and acknowledged by doctors, myalgic encephalomyelitis or post viral fatigue syndrome, is a severe, debilitating disease that leaves the sufferer unable to carry out day to day functions for a long period of time. It can last for six months or more. The exact cause of chronic fatigue syndrome has not been determined, though some theories suggest that it may be triggered by viral conditions such as glandular fever. Symptoms include utter fatigue that cannot bee received by rest, an inability to focus and depression. Use lymph-supporting oils that also uplift and restore your energy and spirit such as rosemary, bergamot, lemon and other citrus oils.
Sufferers also experience joint and muscle pain, sore throats and slight fevers and tender lymph nodes in the neck and armpits. Relieve muscular pain with ginger oil and burn anti-infectious oils for mild fevers. For tender lymph nodes bathe with diuretics such as geranium or patchouli oils.
Restore your spirits and re-energise with bergamot and citrus oils.
