What it Does:

The immune system is our defence mechanism and defends the body from pathogens, including bacteria and viruses. It’s made up of white blood cells, proteins, and other tissues, including the lymphatic system.

As well as participating in our defence against infection the lymphatic system drains excess fluid from the body tissues and removes debris from that fluid. It also absorbs fats and fatty acids from the bowel and transports them into the bloodstream.
 

What Could go Wrong:

Bacterial infections
Viral Infections
Fungal Infections
Parasites
Allergies
Hay fever
Tonsillitis
Glandular Fever
Lymph oedema
Autoimmune conditions
