Lymphatic_systemAs human beings, we all have a lymphatic system which is part of our miraculous and intelligent body. But how many of us can say we have any idea what the lymphatic system does, why it is important or why we should care?

The lymphatic system is something like a employee; doing multiple jobs efficiently to help the system work smoothly.

The lymphatic nodes, trunks and vessels that form the human lymph system are present throughout the entire body from head to fingertips, torso to toes.

Current science estimates that each of our bodies contains approximately 34 trillion cells. As each of those cells performs its constant activity to keep the body healthy and alive, waste products are generated. One of the jobs of the lymphatic system is to carry excess liquids, cell waste, dead cells, and toxins away to be filtered by organs (spleen) or eliminated through waste (kidneys). We could sort of think of it as a sewer system for the body.
