WHAT IS L.E.T AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Lymphatic Enhancement Technology, L.E.T for short, is the decongestion of the lymphatic system using the Lymphstar Pro Fusion® (LPF) lymphatic therapy instrument. L.E.T enhances detoxification and health by improving lymphatic circulation up to 10 times faster than traditional manual lymphatic drainage. The therapy unit emits a combination of vibrational energies (an electrostatic field, low frequency acoustic waves, and an electro-pressure field) which clear away randomly bonded proteins, excess fluid, and blockages in the lymphatic system. It also stimulates the meridians and acupuncture points of the body and is extremely relaxing to experience.
Healthy tissue contains proteins that are always in a state of alignment. This is most evident in the stable alignment of collagen in the connective tissue found throughout the body. When cells die or are damaged, these protein structures breakdown and are removed by the lymphatic system. When the lymphatic system is unable to fully remove these proteins (due to blockage or congestion) pathologies occur in the body including cancers. As these nonfunctional proteins bond in random, unaligned structures. This random alignment is called fibrotic condition of the interstitium (the area between living cells in the connective tissue). The instability of nonfunctional proteins causes them to attract and hold water by electrical bonding causing what is known as Edema.
L.E.T creates separation in the randomly bonded proteins throughout the body by presenting a flood of electrons compatible with the random protein structures which cases them to release the water they are holding. Healthy tissue protein structures do not attract water and therefore are not affected by the energy presented by L.E.T.
