Homeopathic Medicine for Immune System – Lymphatic System
The immune lymphatic system is an infection fighting circulatory system of body fluids and lymphocytes travelling in delicate vessels called ducts that collect fluid squeezed from veins during Normal metabolism, and bring it back to the veins near the heart. The lymphatic fluid resembles blood serum, that is, blood fluid containing only lymphocytes (white blood corpuscles without cytoplasmic granules, they are normally 20 – 50% of total white cells and may increase to 90% in lymphatic leukaemia) and is returned to the blood stream at various parts of the body so that the waste products can be removed by the kidneys. The lymphatic system also includes various infection fighting or lymphocyte producing organs such as the spleen, tonsils, appendix, thymus and intestinal Peyer’s patches. A lymph node is a kidney or bean-shaped bin occurring along the lymphatic ducts. There are hundreds of them. It filters the lymphatic fluid and removes the disease forming materials. They stop cancer cells and in turn may become the seat of cancer themselves. The filtered pure lymph enters the main trunk for absorption into the blood. The lymph nodes are of the size of a pinhead to the size of an olive or an almond. Lymph is transparent but in the vessels draining the intestines, it is milky in color due to the presence of fats and is called “chyle”.
DISEASES OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
- Lymphoma (tumor in the lymphatic vessel): Lymphoma is a general term for growth of a new tissue in the lymphatic vessel. It can be of a low form, that is, it is non-malignant or it can be malignant and a lymph sarcoma.

NOTE 1: It is the weakening of the defence and immune system that allows microbes to suddenly become virulent and the body cannot fight the disease. When the defence mechanism is healthy, the same microbe passes through or is pushed out without causing the disease.
NOTE 2: Immune system cells called “lymphocytes” are responsible for the destruction of virus infected cells and tumors. These cells are also responsible for causing rejection of transplanted organs. When these cells do not work properly, auto immune diseases like Rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, etc. appear.
NOTE 3: To keep the immune system strong and healthy, take desired rest and do not tire yourself unnecessarily.
NOTE 4: Quit smoking and avoid second hand smoke or passive smoking.
NOTE 5: Take increased quantity of fruits, vegetables and fluids. Citrus fruits, cabbage, cauliflower, potatoes, tomatoes, green and red peppers boost the immune system.
NOTE 6: The complex immune system is designed to fend off infection. Two important cells which tight infection are “T cells” which kill tumor cells, viral infected cells and parasites, and “B cells” which signal the other cells to kill the invading substances. Mothers always advise their children to wash their hands before taking meals and after taking meals, using the toilet and urinal – with soap and water. This helps avoid transmission of infection.
