Optimizing Your Lymphatic System

"The lymphatic system is the body's inner "drainage system.

The lymphatic system is a critical part of the immune system and plays a vital role in protecting us from illness and disease-causing inflammation.

According to Cancer UK, this works because . . . 

"as the blood circulates around the body, fluid leaks out from the blood vessels unto the body issues. This fluid carries food to the cells and bathes the body tissues to form tissue fluid. The fluid then collects waste products, bacteria, and damages cells, as well as any cancer cells if present. This fluid then drains into the lymph system. The lymph then flows through the lymph vessels into the lymph glands, which filter out any bacteria and damaged cells."

Once filtered, the lymph leaves the glands and moves into larger lymphatic vessels to the thoracic duct at the base of the neck. Lymph is then released back into the bloodstream, free of any harmful infection or bacteria.

The lymphatic system also helps to maintain fluid balance within the body. The fluid loss (approximately 2 liters a day) would cause dehydration if the lymphatic system did not take it from the tissues, clean it, and recirculate it into the body (John Stoddard Cancer Center, 2017).
