The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that help rid the body of
toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. The primary function of the lymphatic
system is to transport lymph, a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells,
throughout the body.
If we liken our lymphatic system, to that of a stream that feeds a slow-moving river,
the lymph system transports lymph fluid through ever-widening vessels, moving it
through 500 filtration and collection points — the lymph nodes (ponds). At each
successive node, the lymph fluid is filtered and bacteria is removed. If lymph fluid
is blocked in one lymph node it will usually take a detour, but when blockage is
extreme it can cause the lymph fluid to back up and cause swelling in the
surrounding tissue, a condition known as lymphedema.
The lymphatic system is recognized by doctors in Europe and the Far East for its
importance in preventive health care. They understand how lymphatic function
supports every other system in the body, including the immune, digestive,
detoxification and nervous systems. In fact, many believe that poor lymph health underlies a host of conditions, from cellulite to cancer.
The team at The Jade Healing Centre can help to clear the path of the Lymphatic System so the stream can flow properly.
