Lymphatic and Immune Systems for Beginners 

with Matthew Wood and Phyllis D. Light

Herbalist with 75 Years of Joint Experience 

as Consulting Herbalists & Herbal Authors


The lymphatic system is simple but very important. It drains the waste products of the entire body, eventually dumping them into the bloodstream where they can be taken up by the liver and kidneys for final processing. In addition, the system serves as the “vehicle” for the immune system, producing and hosting white cells and offering a ground for the “immune” battles of the body. The two are now seen as a continuous system. “Lymphatic stagnation” has always been an accepted category in alternative medicine though it is not acknowledged in biomedicine. 

In this class we discuss the lymphatic side of this system and how it operates with the spleen, thymus, lymphoid tissue, immune system, and remedies for “lymphatic stagnation." We also touch on GALT (gut-associated lymphoid tissue) and its role in digestive health and the overall health of the body.

So much great information! I realize how little I understood the lymphatic system. Glad I signed up for Intermediate class as well.
