Empowering strategies to improve lymphedema with therapeutic exercises and supporting recipes. Lymphedema treatment is an expanding topic on a condition that has been historically misunderstood and underdiagnosed. The condition is characterized by fluid retention and chronic swelling that significantly impacts the daily lives of approximately 200,000 people in the UK. It can be caused by infection, injury or genetic disorder and may occur as a complication of cancer treatment. In The Complete Lymphedema Management and Nutrition Guide, physiotherapist Ann DiMenna and dietitian Jean LaMantia share their expert knowledge of the condition, explaining its link with diet and exercise. Together they offer lifestyle adjustments and selfmanagement strategies that may help those living with lymphedema gain control of their conditions, lessen their symptoms and improve the overall quality of their lives. This is an essential guide for anyone experiencing symptoms of lymphedema. The book includes expert information on underlying causes, symptoms, effective treatments and therapeutic exercises supported by both clinical and scientific research. It offers a friendly, easy-to-understand approach with step-by-step photographs and illustrations along with supplementary videos hosted on the authors' site. It also delivers over fifty recipes to support an anti-inflammatory diet characterized by low sodium, low fat, adequate fluid and sufficient protein.
