Lymphedema

feel more comfortable under your skin

If your lymphedema has been unremitting for at least 6 months, Chinese herbs may be your solution. This ancient Asian medicine can help strengthen your lymph vessels and circulate fluid more efficiently. Your body can heal from the trauma or insufficiency. 

Lymphedema usually occurs in the limbs, although it can occur throughout the body or in an area affected by surgery. It can occur anywhere where the lymphatic system is damaged or compromised. The common occurrence is from mastectomy, lumpectomy, radiation, traumatic injury, infection, and chronic venous insufficiency.

  • Chest or truncal lymphedema can happen after mastectomy and radiation.
  • An insufficiency, without an obvious trauma, can cause a generalized edema. Your whole body feels bloated. The weight swings daily.
  • Edema only in the lower legs. This is caused by the gravity having a greater force than your body’s ability to uplift the fluid.  

Chinese herbs can effectively address a variety of causes by helping your body to self-heal. When the herbs specific to your constitution are formulated, they work with the body while the lymphatic problem is addressed. Both your body and the lymph addressed, you have a higher chance of recovery.  

Patients begin to notice a significant lessening of the lymphedema after 2 months of treatment.  Total treatment is between 3 to 6 months, depending on the severity of the condition.
