The vein and lymph pumps - what are they?
It is a common false thought that only the heart drives the blood around in the body. There is however another mechanism providing blood and lymph circulation, the vein and lymph pumps consisting of these elements.
- The veins, that are the blood vessels leading the blood from the body organs towards the heart.
- The lymph vessels leading fluid from the body tissue ino the bodie's main veins.
- Valves in the veins and the lymph vessels preventing the blood and lymf to flow backwards.
- All the muscles in the body.
When the body muscles contract, the weins and lymf vessels are compressed, pressing the lymf fluid and blood foreward towards the heart. The valves secure that the direction of the flow is only foreward. When The muscles relax, the veins and lymph vessels are refilled.
An optimal health is absolutely dependent upon this mechanism working correctly.
Een though these mechanisms are well known and described in conventional physiological litterrature, it does not seem that they hae got any name as a whole in that litterature.
Nor does it seem that these mechanism have got the attention they deserve in that litterature, except when handling with specific conditions like serious edema.
Terms like vein and lymph pump is mostly found in alternative medical litterature.
How the vein and lymph pump work
The blood is allways pumped foreward through the veins by the movements in the breathing muscles . For the vein pump to function effectively, the breading movements must be:
- The breathing must be regular, not too rapid and not too slow
- The lungs must be filled and emptied effectively in each breath
But in a well working relaxed body, all the other muscles in the body contract rhytmically in synchronization with the breathing movements. These contractions are so gentle that they are not normally recognized, but they are enough to secure an effective blood flow through the veins and lymph vessels in a relaxed body.
When the body is working, the muscles will contract in accordance with work done, and the blood will be pumped foreward in synchronisation with the muscular work and with a force derived from the muscular work.
Disturbances in the vein and lymph pumps
The vein and lymf pumps are dependent of an effective muscle function to work effectively. These types of functional disturbances can occur:
-If the breating is fast and superficial, the veins will not get an effective rhytmical pressure and relaxation from these muscles and the pumping will not be effective.
-If the muscles are constantly tensed, the veins will not be effectively filled and emptied, but instead constantly restrained, and the flow foreward will be impaired.
-By a sedantry life without much motion and exercize, the mechanisms are simply underused and the fluid circulation in the body is impaired.
-Tissue degeneration caused by imflammation in the tissues of the vessels, will cause the vessel walls to be less elestic, will cause the walls to get deformed, can destroy the claffs in the vessles and thereby make the vein and lymph pumps less effective.
An impaired vein pump will result in edema, strain on the heart and general bad condition.
Consequences ofdisturbances in the vein and lymph pumps
If the vein and lymph pumps do not work effectively, several consequences can occur.
First of all. the body tissues will not get rid of waste substances. This will decrease the genertal condition, cause feelings of not being well, decrease the immunity against microbes and cause pain in tissues.
An impaired back-circulation or venous blood and lymph will then cause fluid to gather in the tissues, wich causes edema, that is swallen limbs or other body parts.
Blood and lymph that gather in the tissues can then destroy the valves in the vein and lynph vessels and make the parts of veins be delated, a condition called varicose veins.
A more serious consequence is a total clogging of the vein, called venous trombosis, which is a serious condition if great veins or many veins are affected, since it can stop the blood flow in a tisuue totally.
How to effectivize your vein and lymph pumps
Here are some ways to make the vein and lymph pumps to work effectively:
-Take some time each day to relax, and get rid of muscle tension. Meditation or autogenic training are effective ways of achieving relaxation.
-Get some regular exercize.
-Massage in the direction of the blood flow will effectivize the pumping of blood and lymph in this system.
-Rhytmical contraction of muscles will also effectivize the system.

caused by lack of the mineral magnesium.
When less blood is circulating, the kidneys react by releasing a protein called
"rennin" which causes the retention of water and sodium.
The conjestion leads to further failure of the heart. Aventrol is specifically formulated to help with all these problem components. The ingredients in Aventrol have been proven to increase the effectiveness and strength of mitochondria, which are the energy factories that allow the heart to beat.
