Love Your Lymphatics, Love your what?

Lymphatics. This highly pertinent system plays a major role in whether you  are in good health or lacking it. Let me introduce you to your  lymphatic system.

The lymphatic system is part of the circulatory system. It runs throughout the body and has a variety of jobs. It carries lymph fluid (waste filled fluid)  through lymph nodes. This fluid contains damaged cells or cellular debris,  bacteria and toxins. These things are routinely filtered through the lymph  nodes. The lymphatic system cleans the lymph and returns it to the  circulatory system as plasma, for use in the day to day operations of the body.

The lymphatic system is also part of the immune system. It is responsible for  moving blood cells throughout the body to fight infection. It monitors your  body for germs and abnormal cells, like cancer cells, and tells your immune  system when to go to work to defend against disease. This makes your  lymphatic system your first line of defence.

A clogged or overwhelmed lymphatic system leads to chronic dysfunction in  the body, illness and disease. Your daily activities and health become  affected!
