The Lymphatic System - What is it and how does it affect overall wellness?

by Route 40 Home & Wellness

Discussing the Dramatic Impact of the Lymphatic System on Our Wellness 

Do you ever wonder why our glands get swollen when we’re sick?

It’s due to our lymphatic systems being pushed into overdrive.

The lymphatic system disperses lymph throughout our bodies. This fluid is packed with white blood cells responsible for the robustness of our immune systems. When we're sick, this process is kicked up a notch and overly strains, leading to excessive inflammation. 

In summary, our lymphatic system (which includes tonsils, adenoids, spleen, and thymus) is constructed with vessels. These resemble veins and capillaries, connecting to the nodes that filter the lymph. 

Given the lymphatic system’s impact on our overall health and wellness, we must maintain and optimize its function.

Essential Oils Bolster Immunity and Our Lymphatic Systems

Research from the US National Library of Medicine verifies how specific essential oils “possess strong antimicrobial activity against various bacterial, fungal, and viral pathogens.” Considering how the coronavirus and its many strains are rampant, these compounds should be a facet of everyone’s wellness regime. 

Furthermore, the lymphatic system’s role in immunity means it goes hand-in-hand with essential oils. 

Think about this: the lymphatic system significantly contributes to digestion, our nerves, weight management, which all impact our wellness. Unfortunately, there’s no pump to circulate or move the lymphatic fluid.

Many essential oils provide that much-needed stimulation for the lymphatic system, helping it better protect us from dangerous viruses, infections, and diseases. 

Which Essential Oils Help Boost Immunity and Enhance Our Lymphatic Systems’ Functions?

The following essential oils bolster immunity while detoxifying and stimulating the lymphatic system:

Grapefruit, Lemongrass, Cypress, Tangerine, Orange, Lemon, Cedarwood, Frankincense, Dill, Tea Tree, Basil, Black Pepper, Geranium, and Clary Sage.

There's one glaring omission—that being CBD. That's because I've saved the best for last:

Arguably, CBD is the number one natural immune system booster since it connects to the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in our bodies. The ECS controls the equilibrium of many bodily functions, helping us achieve homeostasis—otherwise known as “balance.”
