Juicing Recipe for Lymphodema

Thursday, February 25, 2010
I'm a huge fan of juicing- I implement it in my life daily but also make recommendations to my clients and customers to improve their health, balance their pH and delivery key nutrients their bodies need!

As a lymph therapist, I often recommend this juicing drink for my clients who suffer from cancer or severe cases of lympheodema.

Serving: About 6 ounces

1/2 Medium fresh beetroot
1 apple
1 pear
2 small carrots
2 sticks celery
Use this recipe to successfully treat Lymphoedema. Lymph is a clear fluid found in the tissues that normally flows back into the blood circulation system through the lymphatic system. Lymph nodes help to filter and remove waste matter and bacteria from our tissues and so contribute to the successful functioning of the immune system.

Lympoedema is a condition caused by the damage or incorrect functioning of the vessels in the lymphatic system and results in blockages and fluid build up in the affected tissues. This can result in swelling of the affected tissues (oedema means swelling).
