Re: Can anyone help me with lymphatic drainage?

In Health & Fitness 1396934396.343

Spookyghost,I go to one of the hospitals in my city that has a Lymphedema clinic.My oncologist referred me there when I noticed that my arm was starting to swell. At first I was referred to a PT in a different setting. It was not the best experience. She was doing manual drainage on me,but had to have her notes with her the entire time. I didn't get very good results. The difference between PT and a LANA certified practicioner is like night and day. Lymphedema is pretty complex and the patient has to be very dedicated. I hope you get some help. And I agree with Wadzilla...water water water... Continue Reading

I have lymphedema in my R arm. I go to a LANA certified specialist. I wear a garment daring the day and a different one at night. Myself,I would never go to just a massage therapist for treatment.

I start with very light massage on my neck,then my collarb... Continue Reading

Will...thanks for informing me that oil pulling and flossing are different. I will pass that word around the dental community I am active in. Tell them I learned that on QVC. AS I mentioned,my experience is from my office only.We are asked DAILY if oil pulling will take the place of flossing. And,as I mentioned,this is mostly from patients with very poor oral hygiene.They are not committed to good oral hygiene,with basically a low dental IQ. I will repeat,this is experience from my office only. Continue Reading

Most of the oil pullers that I run into in my dental office would rather swish oil for 20 minutes than floss for 2 minutes.Makes alot of sense huh? BTW..most of us in dentistry have seen poor results for oil pulling. Most of the oil pullers that we encounter are the ones that have poor oral hygiene to begin with and are looking for anything they can do rather than meticulously brush and floss. This is my experience only..and that of my co workers. Continue Reading

Spelt flour contains gluten. It does have a lesser amount of gluten in it than wheat flour however. Continue Reading
