The Lymph as a Psychological Buffer System

About Your Lymph and Its Role as the Body’s Psychological Buffer

This blog post is about the wondrous workings of your lymphatic system. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this system, it is comprised of several hundred tiny lymph nodes located primarily in the neck, chest, and belly, as well as drainage ducts and the lymphatic tissues of the spleen, thymus, adenoids, appendix, and tonsils. The lymph itself is a clear liquid that is circulated through the body and eventually returns to the bloodstream. As it circulates, it absorbs and removes toxins, bacteria, digested fats, hormones, and other waste products. The lymph is a primary component of your immune system. It produces and stores white blood cells, including the T cells that attack and destroy bacteria and other life-threatening pathogens.
