The lymphatic system is quite possibly the most under-rated system in the body. It acts like a sewage system, transporting excess fluids and waste from your tissues, as well as a “highway” for the immune system. It is a series of tubes which run throughout your body, with lymph nodes providing centralized filtering and immune functions. Have you ever felt a swollen lymph node under your neck or armpit? This means that the lymphatic system is on high alert and working hard to keep you healthy.
The lymphatic system, unlike the circulatory system, has no pump. It relies on you moving your muscles. This is why your feet may become swollen after several hours of sitting on an airplane, for example.
- chronic recurring infection (ear ache, colds, sore throat etc)
- chronic recurring inflammation (joints, old injuries, sinusitis etc)
Shown on the graphic is the lymphatic system (yellow).
An intact lymphatic system is necessary to ensure the immune cells can quickly get to where they are urgently needed, as well as clear inflammation and reduce swelling when there is injury.
Quickly treating the lymphatic system after trauma, injury, surgery or bruising is essential for a rapid healing effect.
LYMPHDIARAL Drainage-Cream, Sensitive Cream and Drops are essential therapies for reducing inflammation and swelling – and consequently reducing the time it takes to heal from an injury.
A strong body depends on a strong lymphatic system
