But few understand there is another equally vital system of vessels that remove cell waste, excess fluid, Proteins, viruses and bacteria. This is the lymph system, which picks up fluid and waste products from the spaces between the cells and then filter and cleans them. When the Lymph System is backed up or blocked after trauma or surgery we can feel sluggish, puffy, swollen, tired which leaves us more susceptible to colds and infections.
