The lymph nodes and lymphatic system are responsible for filtering foreign matter out of the lymph as well as destroying pathogens. If the lymph nodes become blocked or clogged, severe inflammation can result and the whole system can become toxic due to lack of waste disposal. This toxicity prevents the cells from getting the necessary nutrients. Detoxification is a vital part of any healing process because it re-establishes free lymphatic circulation throughout the body. With the cold gas ionization produced by the AL4, lymphatic congestion and blockages are charged with incoherent light, which breaks up the by allowing molecules to repel each other and restore lymphatic flow.
