THE IMPORTANCE OF THE LYMPHATIC SYSTEM IN GOOD BREAST HEALTH
The lymph system is a cleansing system for cellular waste in the body. It is a one-way transport system that can get easily clogged, because it doesn’t have a pumping system of its own. The axillary (underarm) lymph nodes are close to the breast; 97% of the lymphatic fluid that drains breasts is found in these underarm nodes. For good breast health, it is imperative to keep the lymph fluid circulating. Exercise, deep breathing and lymphatic drainage massage help move the lymph fluid, supporting the clearing of waste and debris from the system. The better the circulation, the healthier your breasts and body will be!
DID YOU KNOW?
Breasts do not have muscles to help move them or a pumping system to circulate and drain fluids.
Surgical scars can cause breast pain or “pulling” and can develop pockets of swelling where fluid collects.
Monthly cycles, pregnancy and lactation or surgery can cause a variety of pain or discomfort. Chronic conditions causing breast congestion are associated with breast pain and degenerative tissue changes.
There are many readily available nutritional supplements and foods that boost breast health factors, including garlic, turmeric (a natural anti-inflammatory), flax seed and oil, omega oils, green tea (a natural anti-oxidant), fresh green vegetables and fresh fruits.
Smoking, excessive alcohol, sugar and refined foods, pesticides and herbicides, chemicals and food additives, trans-fats and hydrogenated oils have been shown to be factors in increased breast disease.

Decongestive lymphatic therapy(DLT) for patients with breast carcinoma-associated lymphedema. A randomized, prospective study of a role for adjunctive intermittent pneumatic compression.
Disruption of the lymphatic circulation through breast carcinoma-associated axillary lymph node dissection, with or without radiation therapy, reportedly is the most common cause of lymphedema in developed countries. There is no cure for breast carcinoma-associated lymphedema. Although intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) has been acknowledged as a potential component of the multidisciplinary therapeutic strategy in the treatment of patients with breast carcinoma-associated lymphedema, prospective study of its adjunctive safety and efficacy is required.
* Study found lymphatic therapy produced a " mean volume reduction (45.3% vs. 26%; P < 0.05)." [for many clients this is significant, it illustrates a reduction in finger, wrist, forearm and upper arm swelling]
