Green Lymphatic System Lady CroppedWhen many cancer survivors end their cancer treatment they don’t think of improving their lymphatic system. There are many reasons why cancer survivors should improve their lymphatic system. During cancer treatment, whether you use traditional chemotherapy and radiation or more alternative treatments, extreme amounts of cellular waste can be created. The buildup of cellular waste like fibrin from the treatments can limit circulation and healing. The lymphatic system is a tiny network of vessels and nodes that helps to reabsorb cellular waste, fibrin, immune cells and fluid from the body. When you improve the lymphatic system after cancer treatment, you help to improve circulation and the ability of the lymphatic system to reduce acidic cellular waste and inflammation. Cancer survivors should improve their lymphatic system to improve lymph flow and their immune system to lower their risk of recurrence.
