Do you know where your lymph’s are?
Remember the mumps? Those tender, painful lumps in your neck, which they also called swollen glands, also occur if you get a cold or infection.
Lymph glands, or nodes, are found throughout the body. We find cluster of them in the groin, along the spine, in the throat, under the armpit, etc. These nodes are about the size of a small almond in their healthy state. However, when they become overloaded with toxins, the swell to several times their size, hence the pain.
The Lymphatic System
Is one of the most important systems of the human body perhaps one of the most neglected. It helps nourish the body by transporting various nutrients such as salts, minerals and protein to all parts of the body. Lymphatic capillaries are distributed like a tree from tiny twigs to smaller branches which, then to larger branches, which eventually form a trunk. These are about as twice as many lymph vessels in the body as there are blood vessels. Most of the body receives nourishment directly from the lymphatic system, rather than from the body. In fact, most of the cells of the body never come in direct contact with the blood, but receive their nutrients directly from the lymphatic fluids.
Although lymphatics resemble veins in their structure and arrangement, they are thinner walled and contain valves and lymph nodes at frequent intervals. The valves are so close together that when distended they give the vessels a beaded appearance.
The indicate walls of the lymph capillaries permeable to all material. They receive the colloids (large particles) which, because of their size, cannot reenter the blood capillaries, as well as electrolytes, water and other substances, and return them to the blood stream. Only through the lymphatics can poisonous proteins be circulated through the blood and eventually be eliminated.
Unlike the blood, the lymphatic system has no pump. It’s constructed so lymph flows slowly, and steadily forward following and uphill course through progressively larger vessels.
Lymph is a transparent, slightly yellowish liquid formed from tissue fluid. The lymph nodes manufacture certain types of white blood cells. Their valuable defense processes include:
- Filtering foreign particles from the lymph,
- Disposal of bacteria,
- Forming antibodies
Certain cells that line the channels of the lymph nodes prevent the spread of infection and disease. As the lymph fluid passes through the nodes, these cleverly constructed cells remove and destroy the microorganism and the injurious particles contained within the fluid. The tender, swollen glands that occur when you have an infection are due to the node’s increased protection of disease-fighting cells.
How lymph fights infection
Lymph is very similar to ocean water. Lymph baths every cell in the body. Lymph supplies each cell with nutrient and helps protect against disease and infection. There is a large system of lymph vessels with filters, which are called lymph nodes. White blood cells leave the blood stream and pass through walls of blood vessels. The traveling white cells go to the site of infection; the white cells surround the bacteria. Some of the white cells die and are secreted from the wound as pus. Some white cells carrying bacteria return to the lymph vessels. Lymph nodes continue the breakdown process until bacteria is rendered completely harmless.
Here at Karyn’s we offer a Lymphatic Drainage Therapy. It is a way to help your lymph system increase the moving of fluid out of the nodes and to stimulate & break up clogged lymph. The therapy is performed with specially constructed photon beam tubes that are placed on the body.
