If a person is in poor health or stress, eats an unbalanced diet, takes medications or is surrounded by chemicals, pollution or free radicals, the lymph system may become overtaxed, sluggish or stagnant. As toxic buildup occurs, it may become difficult for the body to balance hormones, build immunity and create energy
