Comments on: Fasting For Lymphedema Juice fasting, water fasting, dry fasting, free support. Thu, 30 Mar 2017 20:21:26 +0000 hourly 1 By: Robert Ak-Star Sun, 24 Apr 2011 02:05:25 +0000 Hello Tom,
I have Lymphatic Stagnation which have left me with swelling in my Left Neck/Back. I have been on a juice fast for 48 days and the swelling is still there. I also have trouble sleeping because of this and have numbness and tingles in my left arm mostly at night. I also have not have a bowel movement in the last 10 to 14 days. I was thinking of coming off my fast to a raw food diet. What do you think?

Juice fasting always has a beneficial effect on lymphedema. I have seen amazing recovery of lymphedema in 10 days and I have seen a very slow response. The swelling of lymphedema is always reduced.
You best treatment is a juice fast of 30 to 40 days. You do not have to worry about detoxing to fast as you can just drink more juice. You need to have and exercise ball for doing exercises with your feet above the level of your body. You can also rest your legs on it if you are relaxing. I would add vitamin E 1600 IU daily and 4 tablespoons of essential oil. If you can do the shoulder stand a yoga move, it will help relieve pressure. Swimming is the best exercise for lymphedema as it massages the lymph while putting pressure on the skin.
