      @poisonpixie83 caffeine is also not good for us lymphadema patients but eating ginger is a good food to eat. I read it on a book about lymphadema

      I'm on a strict keto diet, my doctor found an article that recommended this diet for lymphedema. So far I've lost 148 pounds, I only wrap for a couple of hours and it's removed all my Celiac symptoms. It's a tough diet, but I'm willing to do it. It also has reversed my daughter's PCOS, that was a big surprise!

      I’ve been juicing. It took a couple of months before I saw results but it’s working for me…. I do all the fruits and vegetables that help to lower inflammation and help with purging out fluid

        @Andi71 what is your routine with the juicing

          @Thunder77 every morning. I do it fresh. Otherwise if you make it in advance it oxidizes and you can lose the nutrients and freshness

      Cut down on salt sodium interests swelling also limit fluid intake
