Lymphedema is a disorder that disrupts the flow of lymphatic fluid in the lymphatic nodes and vessels, caused either due to injury or genetic inheritance. This causes the lymph fluid to stagnate in the tissue which results in the swelling of limbs. It is important that the lymphatic fluid is returned back into the bloodstreams so that the toxins of the body are taken care of. The flow of lymph fluid has an omnidirectional flow and therefore any kind of blockages in the vessels should be taken care of.
Clinical treatment of lymphedema is not the answer to taking care of this condition, as there are several who have suffered from the aftermath. Although lymphedema is incurable, there are several natural therapies that help in treating this condition.
Lymphedema natural treatment methods are non invasive and do not scar the body like any other clinical treatment. Some of these treatments include manual lymph drainage therapy, which is a massage treatment as well as continuous use of compression garments that help in reducing the swellings in the affected areas.
These treatments also make sure that the lymphatic fluid is transported back into the lymphatic vessels and nodes through proper massage therapies that are directed towards the flow of the fluid. There are even herbal remedies that aid in treating lymphedema. Herbs as lymphedema natural treatment help in increasing the flow of the lymph fluid which reduces swelling and helps in increase the strength of the vessels. Some of these herbal remedies include ginger tea, butcher’s broom, ointments like sweet clover etc.
