Solve Lipidema (Lipedema, RADs, Heavy Legs Syndrome) together

This blog is devoted to the more personal factors behind lipedema, It's our collective real experience combined with the most current research and remedies.  We've seen a global awareness growing in the past couple of years, and researchers are dedicated to finding answers in a collaborative framework.  Link to and for more from Betty B. Ready.  I'm in this with you.  I have only my pieces of this puzzle to share, but if everyone just brings his/her puzzle pieces to the table, we can solve this together..

Muscle Testing (Kinesiology) Answers for Lipidema (Lipedema)

Presentation ClipartIf you haven't studied kinesiology, or muscle response, and some very simple methods you can use to determine which of the foods you're eating are actually offensive to your digestive/immune systems, start learning.  Start testing your body's response to things you eat on a daily basis and you'll find lots of strange surprises.  Foods I would have sworn were "good for me" because someone else said so are, in fact, NOT!  And every day as I pass on these helpful tools, I find out how unique and individual each of us is.  As far as I can tell, there is no "one size fits all" solution for our nutrition and healing

What is the lymphatic system?--a simplified but helpful explanation

"The Lymphatic or “Lymph” System is commonly known as “the garbage disposal system” of the body. It is often referred to as the “second circulatory system” and flows throughout the entire body. The Lymphatic System is a complex network of lymphoid organs, lymph nodes, lymph ducts, lymphatic tissues, lymph capillaries and lymph vessels that produce and transport lymph fluid from tissues to the circulatory system. The Lymphatic System is a major part of the immune system. It is through the Lymphatic System that toxic substances move out of the body through the bloodstream.
When your Lymphatic System is blocked or clogged, this creates a condition of stagnation which promotes fatigue and ill health. Some of the common symptoms include lumps, bumps, pain and swelling.
Unlike the blood circulatory system, the Lymphatic System has no pump to keep fluid flowing. Some causes of a blocked lymph system are due in part to stress, lack of exercise, improper diet and repressed communication. "
(this is what is affected with lipedema, (lipidema, RADs, etc) and what hurts."

pH balance of lymph system versus coffee and soda--need to know
I found this on the website of the Center for Lymphatic Health  " takes an incredible amount of good water to counteract the effects of soft drinks and coffee. Most carbonated soft drinks have a pH of about 3, making them about ten thousand times more acidic than pure water with a pH of 7."

Lymphatic System rebounder exercise--an article I'm passing on

taken from

"Exercise is essential to maintain proper flow of the lymphatic system. The lymph system has no pump and the flow depends on respiration and muscle contraction. A combination of deep breathing and stretching exercises is very beneficial to proper lymph flow. The perfect exercise for restoration and maintenance of the lymphatic system is a rebounder or personal trampoline.
When one does the lymphatic health bounce, the feet don’t leave the mat. By gently surging up and down for 2-3 minutes at a time stress and tension are relieved and lymphatic flow is enhanced. Utilization of the stabilizer bar allows everyone to sit or stand and “lymphacize” their entire system.
So, check your lymph nodes; if they are sore your lymph is blocked and you have created a breeding ground for disease. If the soreness is moderate use the self administered self care techniques."
