    Ecstatic Lymphatic by Skye Forrester
    Your Built-In Detox Your lymphatic system is essentially your body's natural detox system ' it's a network of vessels that get rid of toxins, waste and other unwanted stuff in the body by transporting lymph from tissues and organs into our blood. These vessels are very similar to the veins and capillaries in our circulatory system. They're connected to lymph nodes and these nodes can be found all over the body ' there are hundreds of them! Lymph is a fluid-like substance made up of water, protein and infection-fighting white blood cells that flow just below the skin layers. So, the very best way you can keep your body detoxified is to boost your lymph flow.
