The lymphatic system is the frontline in our bodies’ ability to fight disease and infection by localising
foreign bodies. It is also involved in detoxifying our body (like our own inbuilt waste disposal unit)
transporting toxins, bacteria, excess fluid and metabolic waste out of our bodies as well as producing other
immuno-competent cells (primarily T and B cells) which are involved in fighting infection. T cells and B cells
belong to a group of white blood cells known as lymphocytes and play a central role in our immunity.
Daily stress, fatigue, emotional shock, chemical overloading, infection, pollution, food preservatives and many
other things can greatly impair the functioning of healthy tissues and healthy lymphatic pathways.
If the lymphatic system stopped moving the excess fluid and leaked proteins back into the circulatory system,
the body would develop severe edema and death would result in 24 to 48 hours.
