The Lymphatic System and Cancer

The lymphatic system is a vital part of your immune system that helps fight off cancer. It is a network of vessels that carry lymph fluid throughout the body. Lymph fluid is a clear, colourless liquid that contains white blood cells, proteins, and other substances.

So, how does the lymphatic system help with cancer?

As the blood circulates around the body, fluid leaks out from the blood vessels into the body tissues.  This fluid carries food to the cells and bathes the body tissues to form tissue fluid.  The fluid then collects waste products, bacteria and damaged cells. It also collects any cancer cells if these are present. There are a number of things you can do to keep your lymphatic system healthy, including:

  • Eating a healthy diet: A healthy diet that includes plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains can help to keep your lymphatic system healthy. These foods are high in antioxidants, which can help to protect your cells from damage.
  • Exercising regularly: Exercise helps to keep your lymphatic system moving, which can help to flush out toxins and waste products. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise most days of the week.
  • Getting enough sleep: Sleep is essential for your immune system to function properly. Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep each night.
  • Avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption: Smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can damage your immune system, which can make it more difficult to fight off cancer.
  • Regular lymphatic drainage therapy: Lymphatic drainage therapy is a gentle massage technique that can help to move lymph fluid through the body and remove toxins. This can help to improve lymphatic function and reduce inflammation.
