Mention the cardiovascular system and most people have a pretty good idea of what it is and how it functions. But although the lymphatic system is vitally important to our health, most people dont understand it or even know what it is
The lymphatic system collects toxins in the body Similarly, the lymphatic system is also connected to every organ in the body, but its function is completely different from that of the cardiovascular system . The lymphatic system is the "garbage collector", sucking up metabolic garbage, and toxins from the extracellular fluid of every organ. If this flow is impaired, the fluid becomes thick and toxic.
The cells which rely on the lymphatic system for elimination become less efficient and sluggish as they fill with their own waste. The lymphatic system - which in a healthy person is a life-sustaining system - now becomes a breeding ground for infection. When the fluid enters the bloodstream, which is part of the normal process, infection can now spread to any organ in the body. Many viruses, bacteria and parasites stay locked within the lymphatic system when it is in a sluggish state. The result: degenerative disease and an increase in the rate of aging.
