Product description

Product Description

Eat to starve lymphedema and lipedema by having foods that fight these conditions (and cancer) and avoiding foods that contribute to symptoms or related conditions. Lean how food choices affect both conditions and how better nutrition can improve symptoms (including pain) and delay changes associated with progression to more advanced stages. Intended for anyone with, or at risk for, lymphedema or lipedema, caregivers, lymphedema therapists, and other health care providers.

Signs of lymphedema and lipedema (painful fat syndrome) include swelling (edema), abnormal fat accumulation, pain, skin changes, and infections (cellulitis, wounds or ulcers) in affected areas. Lymphedema and lipedema are progressive conditions that can be depressing, disfiguring, disabling, and (potentially) deadly, without treatment. This guide explains why nutrition is an essential part of treatment and self-care for these conditions, what to eat, and how to change your eating pattern. It also covers vitamins, minerals, and supplements that may be beneficial.

You may be at risk for lymphedema if you have chronic venous insufficiency, other venous disorders, heart disease, obesity, a cancer diagnosis (especially breast cancer, reproductive system cancers, or melanoma), or a family history of lymphedema or swollen legs. Eating wisely and maintaining a healthy body weight can help reduce your risk of developing lymphedema symptoms.

This guide includes all the information you need for changing your eating pattern including ways to increase your motivation and build support for changing your eating pattern, meal plans and recipes for recommended foods, a shopping guide, cooking tips, suggestions for eating away from home, and much more. It also includes detailed information on lymphedema and lipedema including risk factors, signs and symptoms, treatment, other health care considerations and over 40 photos showing different stages of each condition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lots of information but a bit inconsistent 12 June 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Verified Purchase
I have very mixed feelings about this book. Obviously a lot of research went into it but I find it to be a bit poorly organized. The thing that throws me is some of the inconsistency-coffee and tea are listed under foods that one should 'eat primarily' and also under 'eat rarely or never'. Which is it? Also, in a past 2015 version of the recommended eating plan that was published, fish and eggs were under 'eat primarily' and now they are under 'eat in limited quantities'. Potatoes and raw nuts and seeds have also moved categories. My question is, between 2015 and 2016, how much has the evidence changed to influence the categorization of these foods, and therefore, are first two categories arbitrary?

2.0 out of 5 stars Research online instead. 12 December 2016
By LH - Published on

I expected more from this book. The latest research is proving that a Keto or LC HF diet is really doing wonders for Lipedema & Lymphedema sufferers. I have Lipo-Lymphedema and the Keto diet is working for me. This book recommends an entirely different way of eating, more like the standard american diet of high carbs. I completely disagree so I found the book relatively useless. FYI, I've lost 30 pounds in 3 months on Keto and a lot of it from my Lippy areas. Just saying.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Cryed! 28 April 2016
By Colleen Crawford - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Eight percent of cancer survivors contract secondary lymphedema from their treatment. I can't tell you how difficult it is to survive a life threatening disease only to contract a life altering incurable disease as a result of your treatment. The emotional and physical toll of lymphedema is expediently increased by inadequate access to care and support to assist people living with the disease. Doctors are not trained in treatment and no medical specialization exists in lymphatic diseases.

This book gave me hope. The people who wrote it have experienced and live with lymphedema. The strategies they suggest and I will follow will help me deal with the symptoms and progression of this hideous condition while practicing cancer prevention at the same time. This is undoubtedly a win win solution!

To technical for me would prefer something written for the average "Joe." I flagged some pages but doubt I look at the book again.
