Lymphatic system, the real sewer system of the body [cloaca]
Cloacal – 1656, Mod.L., euphemism for “sewer,” from L. cloaca “sewer,” from cluere “to cleanse,” from PIE base *klu- “to rinse, clean.”
Lymph – 1725 in physiology sense, “colorless fluid found in the body,” from Fr. lymphe, from L. lympha “water, clear water, a goddess of water,” variant of lumpæ “waters,” altered by infl. of Gk. nymphe “goddess of a spring, nymph.”
Understanding the lymphatic system – The lymphatic system consists of organs, ducts, and nodes. The lymphatic system transports a watery clear fluid called lymph. This fluid distributes immune cells and other factors throughout the body. It also interacts with the blood circulatory system to drain fluid from cells and tissues. The lymphatic system contains immune cells called lymphocytes, which protect the body against antigens (viruses, bacteria, etc.) that invade the body.
- To collect and return interstitial fluid, including plasma protein to the blood, and thus help maintain fluid balance.
- To defend the body against disease by producing lymphocytes, to absorb lipids from the intestine and transport them to the blood.”
In my humble opinion the Lymphatic System is the real sewer system of the body.
When we look for cloaca in the body and on the internet, we are directed to “a common cavity at the end of the digestive tract for the release of both excretory and genital products in vertebrates (except most mammals) and certain invertebrates. Specifically, the cloaca is present in birds, reptiles, amphibians, most fish, and monotremes.” We don’t have that in mammals.
So where is this cloacal. Since the etymological meaning of this word “Cloacal” is “sewer”, we better look for a sewage system in the body.
In our expedition for finding a sewage system in the body we encounter two main systems:
1. The digestive tract.
2. The Lymphatic system.
Of which the lymphatic system holds the number one position for acting as a real sewer.
If I were to be an affiliate I would search for affiliation with the lymphatic system rather than with the digestive system in this case.
Speaking of the digestive system, this system is rather an inner-outside or an outside-folded-inside system. It is like are wormhole out there somewhere in space. Where everything “delicious” is squeezed out of its content and absorbed into the body. No this is not a sewer system, don’t you agree?
Stephanie Relfe writes in her article “Poisoned cds warning “, “The Cloacals seem to work by acting as a reference point for the Autonomic Nervous System, which has the main job of maintaining stability within your body. Therefore, with the Cloacals ‘blown’ , as we say, a person will be continually out of balance and the body will not be able to completely heal itself.
In addition, the person may be operating on, say 30% to 70%, of their normal body energy level. If the Cloacals are not working properly, a few of the things that will be affected are body energy levels, bladder, bowels, reproductive organs, pregnancy, sexuality, hormone levels, body fat, metabolism, blood sugar levels, blood pressure, body temperature, speed of healing, immune efficiency, brain chemistry, learning abilities, coordination, emotional stability and allergic responses.” http://www.metatech.org/poisoned_cds.html
When we superimpose these attributes on one of the two main systems, again the lymphatic system is number one.
Let me focus on one of the stated attributes “speed of healing”. Imagine you made a fall and you got some brucing going on. The only system that can help you heal quick is the lymphatic system. Stimulating the flow – tender and soft – you promote fresh blood to the inflicted area so to bring more nutrients, air and healing media to the area. This is only accomplished by the lymphatic system.
So when you are looking for the Cloacals, I suggest you immediately correlate that with the Lymphatic system. The real sewer system of the body in terms of cloaca.
