Keeping Your Lymphatic System Healthy
The lymphatic system is probably one of the least talked about systems in the body. Despite it being behind the scenes and mostly off the radar, it’s of major importance in your short- and long-term health. Let’s first talk about what the lymphatic system does and you’ll soon see why it’s so important. I’ll finish with some easy tips on how you can help your lymphatic system function optimally.

The lymphatic system is part of the circulatory system and is made up of a network of vessels, nodes, and ducts. Instead of transporting nutrients to the cells, like the blood vessels do, it transports some nutrients (especially fats), waste products, immune cells and “recyclable” constituents away from cells. The lymphatic system is essentially the human drainage system and if this drainage system doesn’t flow properly your cells will be left bathing in waste products and toxins that need to eliminate. You can only imagine how great you’d feel (and look) if these toxins weren’t shuttled away, in the form of “lymph” by this system.

Here are a few tips to keep you lymphatic system healthy and draining properly.


We need to drink enough water throughout the day to keep the lymph flowing like the consistency of water instead being of thick and too viscous like molasses. And, there is one key supplement that assists with helping your body to properly assimilate water. Visit our page on Mega Hydrate to learn more about this supplement.


The lymphatic fluid flows upward or superior in the body. And it doesn’t have a set of valves to help keep the lymph moving, the way our veins do. Therefore, muscle contraction and joint movement is the most effective way to keep the lymph draining. So start moving somehow, whether it’s walking or exercising or rebounding on a trampoline.


The two key muscles involved in lymph flow are the pelvic floor muscles and the diaphragm. All the lymph in your system will eventually get drained into the blood stream via ducts that are located under the chest muscles. In order to get lymph from the lower extremities into these ducts, the pelvic floor muscles must be strong and work properly. This will get the lymph to drain out of the legs and above the pelvis. Then, you need to have a properly functioning diaphragm to give it a further push into the ducts for final removal from the system. So something as simple as deep breathing can help the lymph flow.

Alternating hot and cold in the shower causes an expansion and contraction of the skin, blood and muscles. This action provides assistant to the lymph system to get the lymph fluid flowing.

Tips for a Healthy Summer of Fun


Stay hydrated, this simple suggestion will go a long way to your summer enjoyment. Because when we are dehydrated we suffer not only on the physical level but dehydration contributes to crankiness, moodiness and general malaise. Dehydration is severely taxing on the body particularly the kidneys and adrenals. Drinking plenty of water and using Mega Hydrate are two surefire ways to combat dehydration.

Step One consume more water than you think you need, drink even if you are not thirsty. Step Two, use Patrick Flannigan's MegaHydrate daily, this product contains an abundance of bio available hydrogen ions. These compounds assist the body to better utilize the water we drink. With enhanced utilization of water we achieve better cell hydration and cellular waste removal. When using Mega Hydrate the results are we are better hydrated and more sufficiently detoxified by the water we drink than if we did not use this product. Also the freely available hydrogen ions in Mega Hydrate act as extreme anti-oxidants, quenching the free radicals desire for extra electrons without creating more free radicals.


When choosing a sun screen it is important to use a naturally sourced product. This is because of the potential for petro chemical based products to negatively react with the sun. Which can result in toxins being generated that are then absorbed by the skin. The safe all natural sun screen we carry is a unique combination of high quality oils, MSM, and antioxidants that

provide enhanced protection against the free radical damage that occurs

during prolonged exposure to the sun.

The main sun protection compound in this product is Zinc Oxide. Which is a natural mineral that is included to shield against the potentially harmful effects of the sun. It forms a protective barrier over the surface of the skin. It is the only natural ingredient on the market recognized by the FDA as a Category I skin protectant. Zinc

oxide is known to be stable and will not degrade in the sun. This product is rated at SPF 30 and is available Unscented and Orange scented.


Next to water, collagen is one of the most important structural substances in the body, a major component of skin, hair, nails, muscles and joints. Collagen Peptide works to nourish your cells with the essential nutrition that may be lacking in the average diet. It has a powerful ability to assist the repair of damaged tissue especially of the joints, musculature and skin. Collagen is vital to healthy joints as it is the building blocks

for joint cartilage and the structural protein found in joints. This could come in very handy this summer as it is a time of greater activity and sun exposure. And, having the nutrition to assist the body to recover from minor injuries, muscle strain and aches from over use could greatly improve the quality of your time this summer.

This product is very easy to use, it mixes easily into water or smoothies and has no after taste. This product is

also free of common allergens including gluten.

• Helps to Curb Appetite
• Helps to Increase Energy and Endurance
• Helps to Firm and Tone Muscles and Skin

Have a healthy summer and stop by our web shop for some great raw food snacks and other exciting and useful products. Blessings from Zebra Organics .

Crystal Energy by Patrick Flanigan

Patrick Flannigan's two signature products, Crystal Energy and Mega Hydrate are key supplements to staying fully hydrated all the time. Today we will discuss Crystal Energy but first lets review why hydration is so important.


Would you believe that our flesh, bones and organs account for only about 30% of who we are? This body that we think we are that we identify with is mostly water. Take away the water and your left with a hollow shell. Kind of like those magic toys I played with as a kid, where you add water and voila. The lifeless flat little thing took shape and assumed a form. But, we are more dynamic than that, we are more like seeds, there is a huge potential but without the water nothing gets actualized. So I invite you to consider who and what you are and the importance of water in you life, the quality of water and the ability to absorb and utilize it properly.


Water is the source of all life, 70% of you is water and 70% of this earth is water. This keen mirroring of who we are and the planet we live on is fascinating. If we look around we can see what water does and doesn't do, how the quality of water affects living organisms. When we see drought stricken areas we see dry cracked ground, dusty and lifeless. The crust of the earth is akin to our skin, our skin needs to be hydrated to stay healthy, moisturizers and lotions can help it stay supple but if we are not adequately hydrated our skin dries out becomes flaky and begins to crack and peel. This is all an indication of the dry inner landscape asking for proper hydration.


And, add some CRYSTAL ENERGY to your water for enhanced hydration and well being. What is it about adding Crystal Energy to water that makes it so special? First off when you add Crystal Energy to your water you will feel the difference immediately. That is because the micro mineral clusters in this solution both structure the water and reduce the surface tension and this is something you will feel and sense when you first try it. The water feels softer, smoother, more velvety, this is the reduced surface tension at work. Water is a vehicle and a solvent and the solvency of water is greatly enhanced by the reduced surface tension. This is because the water is now able to be better absorbed by the body and go to work both cleansing the cells and delivering nutrients to the cells.

The microscopic clusters that are the structured aspect of CRYSTAL ENERGY also help with the cleansing and nutrient delivery. They help the water in its solvent action as a chelater of toxins and particularly heavy metals. The clusters help to dislodge and encase the toxic substances and carry them safely from the body. This cleansing function combined with better hydration and assimilation of nutrients adds to the feelings enhanced well being that people using this product commonly report.


Incorporating this useful product into your life and getting maximum results from it are easy. Here are a few tips for you to get the most out of Crystal Energy.

  • Add Crystal Energy to your sports water bottle because when we exercise we breathe and sweat at an increased level and these are two ways we lose water. Exercising increases our body's need for water as well as full and proper hydration, Crystal Energy excels at increasing full and proper hydration.
  • Add Crystal Energy to mist bottles that you may use at the beach or during any other activity. This will help to keep your skin soft and refreshed when exposed the elements.
  • Add Crystal Energy to distilled or Reverse Osmosis purified water, this will help to 'revive' the water and give it structure, particularly distilled water which lacks any structure.
With summer just around the corner staying properly hydrated is going to be key to enjoying your time outdoors so pack some with you and bring it where ever you go. And Remember to STAY HYDRATED with CRYSTAL ENERGY and feel the energy of what a properly hydrated body feels like, it is a feeling you will no doubt energy.

Also frequent headaches and chronic grogginess are common signs of dehydration, so check your water intake and add some Crystal Energy to your water.

Staying properly hydrated is one of the most important things in life and Dr. Patrick Flannagan knows this. His Mega Hydrate product contains bio available hydrogen ions which are potent free radical scavenger antioxidants that help us stay hydrated. MegaHydrate does this by unlocking the potential of water as the medium for nutrient replenishment and cellular waste removal. Dehydrated body cells cannot assimilate nutrients or remove waste. Cellular waste build up can lead to worsening of painful conditions like arthritis or fibromyalgia. MegaHydrate also helps fight the negative effects of alcohol, stress, caffeine and free radicals as part of aging.

Simply put a free radical is an oxygen molecule missing an electron, making a normally stable molecule unstable. This little molecule then goes around 'stealing' electrons in order to quench its desire for wholeness, to complete its 'missing' bond. This is known as oxidation. It is going on inside our bodies every second but our bodies do produce antioxidants such as SOD and various glutathione compounds to combat this. But our bodies cannot keep up with the levels of oxidation and produce enough anti oxidants to stop the rampage.

Aging and Anti Oxidants:
Anti-oxidants are compounds which reduce oxidative damage. It has been theorized that oxidation is a large part of the aging process. The slow process of aging is accelerated by free radicals which produce oxidative damage and when left unchecked free radicals create more free radicals in their pursuit of finding missing electrons. It is like a ponzi scheme on the cellular level constantly borrowing with the intent of never returning the favor and creating wave after wave of deficiency and emptiness.

What does Mega Hydrate® got to do with it?
In addition to hydration, MegaHydrate is the most powerful known antioxidant food. Since it is a "pure" antioxidant that does not turn into a free radical itself, taken daily, MegaHydrate delivers far more Hydrogen ions than eating pounds of raw fruits and vegetables or drinking gallons of "healing waters." Humans need Hydrogen to survive. It is the key to long life and anti-aging. However, due to mass food production, mineral deficient soil, pesticides, chemical fertilizers, over-processing of foods, chemical preservatives, and drinking over-chlorinated and over-fluoridated water, people do not get enough Hydrogen ions daily. Body cells become damaged, hydration levels decrease and cells age.

MegaHydrate challenges all this and many customers report immediate pain relief and increases in energy after a few days of using Mega Hydrate. Do you want to address the symptoms of dehydration and minimizes the process of aging? Thanks to Mega Hydrate it is now a whole lot easier!

Mega Hydrate, refreshing as a day at the beach.
