The Lymphatic Support patch was designed to prompt with the body’s energy system to enhance the lymph nodes and connecting organs to transport lymph, a clear, colorless fluid containing white blood cells that helps rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials.
The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that primarily consists of lymph vessels, lymph nodes and lymph. The tonsils, adenoids, spleen and thymus are all part of the lymphatic system.
There are 600 to 700 lymph nodes in the human body that filter the lymph before it returns to the circulatory system. The spleen, which is the largest lymphatic organ, is located on the left side of the body just above the kidney.The lymphatic and the immune system are intricately linked in that the lymphatic system is an important part of the immune system. The immune system is a group of organs and associated structures that help protect the body from possible intruders.
These intruders come in the form of foreign bodies, most typically referred to as antigens. The immune system also protects against viruses and any other threats to the health of an individual. The lymphatic system and immunity are correlated in these protective processes.
It is important to develop an understanding of each system individually. The lymphatic system can be broken down into components. The involved structures include lymph nodes and trunks. When interstitial fluid needs to return to the heart, it must pass through these structures. The lymph system acts as a filter before the fluid is eventually returned to the heart. Additionally, this system produces lymphocytes.
Lymphocytes are the active part of the lymph nodes, which act to defend against the potentially dangerous microorganisms. If these organisms and foreign bodies manifest themselves in a person’s blood or other fluid, it is eventually circulated through lymph nodes. This is the point at which lymphocytes act to rid the body of harmful agents before returning the filtered fluid to the heart for circulation. There are six primary node locations distributed throughout the body in a way
regions evenly. (See Diagram A).
