Lymphatic system is a vast network of small, thin vessels, capillaries, and tissue spaces that carry lymph throughout the body. Lymph is a clear fluid which contains lymphocytes, commonly known as white blood corpuscles. Lymph is found between the cells of the human body. The role of the lymphatic system is to supply food, warmth, and oxygen as well as to protect our body from some infections, gems and diseases. Lymphatic system is a complex system which includes several sub-organs such as spleen, thymus, bone marrow complex, adenoids, tonsils, and lymph nodes which are placed in the neck, groin, under arm and throat. There is more lymphatic fluid in a body than blood, and lymph circulates through the entire body, although it does not have a pump like the heart which pumps the blood.
It is very important to take care of our lymphatic system. The natural therapy can be very effective and helpful in maintaining our lymphatic system healthy. There are several herbs which are recommended to be used in cleaning the lymphatic system, such as Plantain, Black Cohosh, Virginia Snake Root, Gentian and Sweet Root.
