By Susan Allen, Certified Lymphatic Therapist –
At HoriZen Therapies, we strive to offer our clients with the latest, most-effective healing therapies utilizing technologically advanced systems that help the body heal itself naturally. Today, we are proud to tell you about one of our therapies that support this month’s national focus on Breast Cancer awareness.
Lymphatic Decongestive Therapy (LDT)
Even though we have made great strides in both research and therapies, according to the American Cancer Society, every three minutes a woman will be diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States, and one out of every eight women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. One out of every thousand men will follow suit. In spite of scientific advances and the dissemination of a great deal of information on awareness and early detection, the death toll from breast cancer continues to be consistent.
“Most people are unaware that we all have cancer cells”, explains Dr. Jennifer Gardner, Lymphedema Specialist, “and that the only way cancer cells leave the body is through the lymphatic system. By decongesting your lymphatic system, you assist your body in doing what it was designed to do – Keep you cancer free!”
Most importantly, lymphocytes (white blood cells that fight infection in our body) reside in your lymph nodes – a healthy body contains between 600 and 1,000 of them. Your lymphatic system is responsible for supplying plasma-rich protein to your blood as well as carrying away toxins and other debris. Furthermore, your lymphatic system is your primary defense against bacteria, viruses and fungi.
In other words, if your lymphatic system is congested, your whole immune system will be compromised.
Although most people are unaware of the important role their lymphatic system plans in maintaining healthy breasts, today Lymphatic Decongestive Therapy is a medically recognized therapy designed to help you do just that. “Our breasts have hundreds of lymphatic lines that carry toxins and pre-cancerous cells out of the body through the lymph nodes located in the underarms, making a healthy lymphatic system essential”, explains Dr. Bruno Chikly in the anatomy section of his book Silent Wave. “Since the lymph system must be pumped by the movement of our muscles, the less we move, the more stagnant our lymph system becomes. With today’s sedentary lifestyle, pollution, diets low in nutrients and high in fats, sugars, additives, preservatives, and because most of us fail to drink enough pure water to assist our body to eliminate toxins, our lymphatic system becomes overloaded, congested and clogged.”
At HoriZen Therapies, we offer the most-effective, technologically-advanced method of decongesting the entire lymphatic system using our electro-sound technology with our XP-2 instrumentation. Breaking down congested lymph fluid is painlessly achieved using the XP-2 without overstressing the lymph vessels. The electric charges stimulate, re-polarize and re-establish ideal energy of individual cells, tissues, and decongest the entire lymphatic system producing a mild heating effect, increasing circulation, activating lymph, breaking up blockages, detoxifying, and enhancing immunity. Each XP-2 session is equivalent to 8 to 10 manual lymphatic drainage massage sessions. Electro-Lymphatic Decongestive Therapy is a 75 – 90 minute accelerated method of cleansing and detoxifying the lymphatic system. Visit our website for more information.
