Lymphedema

image

1. What is lymphedema?
Lymphedema is a condition in which excess lymphatic fluid collects in the interstitial tissue and causes swelling in specific areas of the body, usually in the arms or legs.  Swelling can also occur in other parts of the body, such as the breast or chest wall.

2. What causes Lymphedema?
Lymphedema can develop as a result of cancer, cancer treatment (e.g., surgery, radiation), infection, trauma, scar tissue, or anything that changes, blocks or interrupts the flow of lymph through the lymphatic system.  While it is most often associated with breast cancer, lymphedema can result from treatment for other cancers, such as prostate cancer, gynecological cancers, lymphoma and melanoma.

The greater the number of lymph nodes removed, the higher the risk for developing lymphedema.  Early diagnosis and treatment for lymphedema is important to help reduce symptoms and prevent the condition from progressing.  Untreated lymphedema can lead to decreased function and mobility in the affected limb, skin breakdown, infection and other complications.

3. Lymphedema prevention and treatment

With proper care and treatment, lymphedema may be prevented or controlled.  Lymphedema treatments vary from person to person, depending on the severity and cause.  Treatment may include skin care, manual lymph drainage, gentle massage and light exercises to help stimulate the lymphatic system.  You may also use compression bandages, pumps, or garments (e.g., sleeves, stockings) to help prevent additional fluid from accumulating in the tissue.  In addition, medications can help reduce inflammation, prevent blood clots, and treat infections.  You may also use surgical options for the treatment of lymphedema.

I am a cancer survivor.  After the Surgery, Chemo & Radiation, I have developed a severe Lymphedema.  After I did a lot of research & visited a few doctors & specialists, I have decided that I do not want to wear a compression bandage as all the doctors recommended. Therefore, I have done the following steps to limit the inflammation & improve the blood flood & improve Lymphatic fluid to flow.

 

1. Massage everyday 100 counts per each part of my leg, arm upward direction.

image

2. Exercise at least 1 hour to improve the fluid movement to the legs & arms.

image

3. Less Protein Intake. Since Lymphatic fluid likes Liquid Fat staying under the skin.  The damaged lymphatic fluid cannot pump back to the lymphatic system, therefore the skin becomes thicker & thicker. Reduction of red meat intake is a must.  Use TLS Shakes (2 Scoops) With Complete Green(2 Scoops) Or Whey Protein Shake (1 Package). You may get them from Global.shop.com

image

4. Eat a lot of fruit and vegetables.

image

5. Low Sodium Food, Soup or any dishes.

image

6. Drink hot water with lemon

image

7. Drink Isotonix Essential Kit twice per day.  OPC3 three capful per day reduce inflammation.  Use 2 capful of B Complex twice per day, Use Calcium 1 capful twice per day & multivitamin 1 capful once per day.

image

Note:  Lymphedema is an inflammation symptom.  It can cause kidney damage, infection in lungs and many other part of the body. Therefore, to control inflammation is the key.

image

8. Skincare

To avoid infection, it’s very important not to scratch the itching skin. Apply some anti-itching cream and moisturizer.

image

9. Drink a lot of Ultimate Aloe Juice.  If financially possible, Drink 1-2 bottles of Aloe Juice in Original Flavor Everyday.  Ultimate Aloe Juice contains over 200 different vitamins & nutritious with over 20 different Amino Acids.

image

10. Use Vitamin D 1 capful per day

image

11. Co Q 10, two gel per day (May get them from global.shop.com)

image

12. Fish Oil 2 Gels twice per day.

image

13. Astaxanthine 1 Gel twice per day (may get it from global.shop.com)

image

14. Use Isotonix Digestives Enzymes at least 3 times per day after each meal.  You may use it as many as possible to make sure the food will not stay stomach for so long.  Make sure you go to bathroom regularly, at least twice per day.

image image

15. Go to Chinese Store or any grocery store to buy Barley Kernels & Green Beens to boil soup.  Drink hot soup after massage every day.  The soup can force your system to release more water from your body.

image image

16. Lift your legs, feet or arms high when you sleep or sit.

image

 

17. Wear Compression Bandages
This is the last option. I prefer not to do so if it is possible. The reason is very simple:
Once you put on the badage, your muscle will not work hard as before; You will not exercise enough to make your body fluid move; your cells
will not be as active as before. The most important, the fluid will push up and accumate aroud your belly or hip area. If the water can not go out fast enough, eventually you will be out of shape. I would like to activate my cells & move the body fluid by exercise more & massage more. That’s my philosophy.

image

18. Soak Arms or legs in warm water to stimulate blood flow.

  15. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
