what is the Lymphatic System?
Every 3 minutes your body circulates about 5.6 liters (6 quarts) of blood throughout your body. The transport of blood is performed via your Cardiovascular System. This system is comprised of your heart, otherwise known as “the pump”, and a network of arteries (Arterial System) carrying oxygen & nutrient rich blood to feed muscles and organs. Following the body’s use of the blood it must return to your heart and this is completed through vessels known as veins, these return pathways comprise your Venous System.
Rising in notoriety is another system within your body, the Lymphatic System. Each day medical professionals are learning more about its’ function, role, and importance with respect to diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and lymphedema. Essentially, the lymphatic system works in conjunction with your cardiovascular system. A simple analogy to compare these systems can be explained as the arterial and venous systems operate as major highways to move and return blood to the heart, while the lymphatic vessels and nodes function as our waste removal system. One important difference of the lymphatic system is that it is movement dependent and can be facilitated with the use of proper gradient compression products.
