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.

"Information that meets the unique and specialized nutritional needs for individuals undergoing treatment."

Recent research indicates that diet can influence a patient's cancer treatment and survival rate as well as help to manage the side effects. This book has been written for both patients and caregivers and addresses the unique requirements of a patient undergoing cancer treatment.

A patient's waxing and waning appetite and ability to maintain optimal nutritional requirements are severely challenged during treatment, so the book provides integral information on how to deal with these challenges. From managing the side effects of treatment with particular foods and nutrients, to make-ahead meals that can be frozen and reheated at a moment's notice, to foods that are simply more palatable to a patient depending on what stage of treatment they're in.

The 150 recipes will also be tabbed and categorized according to their suitability in the stage of treatment, making meal preparation easier.

In addition to the recipes specially selected to meet the needs of cancer patients, this book covers: Treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery Treatment side effects and nutrition recommendations for everything from anemia and appetite concerns to heartburn, taste changes, mouth sores and wound healing Concurrent conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and obesity Fighting cancer cells and boosting the immune system with food such as probiotics, anti-inflammatories, low glycemic foods, phytonutrients, and nutraceuticals Conventional, complementary and alternative treatments such as energy medicine, whole medical systems and alternative therapiesSample menus, shopping lists, resources.

The information in this book will be an invaluable resource and will help to alleviate the worry and concern that patients and caregivers face when dealing with the many health and nutritional issues associated with cancer treatment.
