"getting pimples in your neck is probably due to your lymph being blocked up"
no argument from me... if there was\is one thing I think\thought I could do to improve my lot, it would be to dramatically increase lymph flow. I think the problem may have more to do with lymph, blood and nerve flow (damage) around the sites of my long history with injuries and surgeries, and possibly my spleen rather than the kidneys though. I have always had node knots in and around those sites. I can say that they have reduced in size some with time. I drink Watermelon Seed Tea a couple times a week between flushes to keep things moving and my kidneys have rarely caused me any problems. I passed a stone once years ago and have had one UTI in my life. I also go to a chiropractor twice a week and drink Pu-Erh almost every day. I have been rebounding 5 - 6x a week for the last 9 months or so in addition to exercise, skin brushing and detox bathing.
I do think I am doing what I can in terms of helping the flow :-)... if it is this bad now, what was it like when I started all of this almost 2 years ago? Could have dodged a bullet. I think the pimple and rash\irritation response is an indication that it may be starting to break up. This is a good thing. :-)
