Facebook Post – Lyme Disease Resources – Lymphatic System Tools


The lymphatic system is responsible for draining waste products away from tissues. It’s a network of one-way tubes and valves, and when your system gets sluggish and stuck all sorts of things can happen.

Sore lymph nodes and lymph stagnation are common symptoms of a tick-borne infection*, and nature offers many tools to safely stimulate motion and cause drainage.


Cleavers (galium aparine) and Red Clover are well-respected tools of naturopathy for promoting lymphatic movement. Always check with your doctor or pharmacist to see if cleavers is compatible with your meds.
