The body’s ability to detox well starts in the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system serves as a collecting duct for excess fluid and as a filtering system to screen out foreign organisms. In essence, the lymph system is a network of tubes throughout the body that drains fluid (called lymph) from tissues and empties it back into the bloodstream. The main roles of the lymphatic system include managing the fluid levels in the body, filtering out bacteria, and housing certain white blood cells. Interestingly, the lymph starts in the digestive system, making optimal detoxification a result of optimal digestion and system that is actually a crucial player in your body’s ability to ward off disease and heal from injury.
At our medical practice, we are convinced that the seeds of chronic inflammation (and a lot of other health issues) start with the gut. Two-thirds of the body's defenses reside in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Intestinal bloating, frequent bouts of diarrhea or constipation, gas and pain, heartburn and acid reflux are early signs of an inflamed digestive tract.
