Cory Carter, N.D. - Lymphatic System
This video is 25 minutes - the host stumbles through the introduction but the interview is very informative.


The lymphatic system is a complicated network of vessels, ducts, and nodes that move fluid between the cells and tissues. It is the most underrated part of the circulatory system in the human body. And sadly, many health-care practitioners rarely consider the critical role lymph plays in preventing sickness and keeping us healthy.

Our lymphatic system is primarily responsible for carrying disease-fighting material to cells attacked by germs, transporting the dead germs away and supplying protein-rich plasma fluid back to the heart. When this system is blocked, we become defenseless against attacks by virus, fungi, and bacteria.

Unlike your venous system, your lymphatic system has no pumping mechanism to keep the fluid circulating through the body. Therefore, the lymphatic system is always at a higher risk for blockage. Blockages can occur from normal stressors such as: illness, tight-fitting clothing including bras, ties, jockey shorts & pantyhose, lack of exercise, Bumps, bruises, and other injuries, exposure to heavy metals, pesticides and herbicides, impaired circulation, food allergies or sensitivities, surgery, or stress.


  • Your lymphatic system is actually a vital circulatory system with an extensive network of vessels throughout the body.
  • Your body contains about 50% more lymphatic fluid than blood.
  • Your lymphatic system contains over 600 collection sites called lymph nodes.
  • These nodes are formed at the junction sites of the lymph vessel network.
  • Your lymphatic system is responsible for supplying plasm-rich protein to your blood as well as carrying away toxins and other debris.
  • Your lymphatic system is your primary defense against bacteria, viruses and fungus.
  • Most chronic (disease) problems occur at the junction of lymph vessels called lymph nodes.
  • In men the inguinal nodes, in the crease of the groin, are the primary channel for release of accumulated lymh from the prostrate.
  • In women the axillary nodes, located in the arm pit, are the primary channel for releasing accumulated lymph from the breasts.
  • Cellulite is primarily blocked lymphatic fluid.

An impaired lymphatic system often results in: Colds, Flu and Sinus Problems, Edema & Excess Water Retention, Heart Disease, Fibrocystic & Tender Breast, Cellutlite, Enlarged Prostate, and Cancer.

The good news is that lymphatic health can be restored, even in cases of severe impairment.
