Session Description:

Informative Session with a Q&A portion.

Did you know: The lymphatic system is a crucial player in your body's ability to ward off disease and heal from injury. The lymphatic function supports every other system in the body, including the immune, digestive, detoxification, and nervous systems. In fact, many believe that poor lymph health underlies a host of conditions, from cellulite to cancer.  

For the first half hour, our expert, Renuka Hari, will share what you can do to ensure a healthier lymph system, with practical demonstrations.

Then, you have Questions: we have Answers! We'll explain all of the following and more...

What is it? How do I remember it all? And, how on earth do I pronounce it? 

What happens when your lymphatic system malfunctions?

How can I improve my lymphatic system?

What causes blockages in the lymphatic system?

How can I make my swollen lymph nodes go down?

What are the early signs of lymphedema?
