Today I am joined by Aideen Schweppe, she is a Lymphedema Therapist and Patient Educator, Personal Trainer and Yoga Instructor, and has been treating conditions of the lymphatic system in her clinical practice for 14 years. She's on a one-woman mission to address the information gap around cancer treatment and it's role in causing Lymphedema, plus all the things you can do at home to care for your lymphatic system. Aideen also offers online courses to help you manage your lymphedema.

How To Have A Healthy Lymphatic System
The lymphatic system is our body's 'sewerage system'. It maintains healthy fluid levels in our body tissues by removing toxins and waste products out of the body. The lymphatic system works by using the muscles as a pump. This is why movement and staying hydrated is so important.
