The Lymphatic System

The lymph fluid moves through channels called "vessels" that are filled with one way valves, so the lymph always moves in the same direction. The main lymph vessels run up the legs, up the arms and up the torso.

The detoxifying abilities of the lymphatic system are reduced by poor diet, stress and heavy metal and environmental toxicity, which may result in hormonal dysfunction, immune suppression and chronic degenerative disease. The lymph fluid also contains infection fighting cells called lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell that is crucial in regulating and carrying out most of the activities of the immune system. If the system is weak, we are subject to the invasion of allergies, flu viruses and bacterial organisms.
