More common than HIV, Parkinson’s, ALS, MS and Alzheimer’s combined, lymphedema should be top of mind to anyone in healthcare, especially those who work with cancer treatment and cancer survivors. It’s complicated, reoccurring, and frustrating to treat. If you want to be sure you’re doing everything you can for your patient population, I invite you to a one-of-a-kind lymphedema nutrition program developed specifically with you in mind.
Dietitian. Author. Cancer survivor. I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma at age 27, an experience that sparked my 20+ year career in understanding the interplay between nutrition and cancer. I’ve made it my mission to become an expert in evidence-informed nutrition for lymphedema and want to share best practices with you.
Nutrition is one of the best, but most overlooked, options for lymphedema prevention and management. Screening for lymphedema and taking appropriate action does not have to be an intimidating or difficult task. Even after YEARS of suffering from lymphedema, you can see a measurable difference in outcomes with these powerful strategies! We’ll separate fact from fiction as we cover the most pivotal concepts and debunk outdated methods that are holding your patients back:
Lymphedema isn’t rare, but it’s often mislabeled, underserved, misunderstood, and left out of university courses and practicums. This changes now. This training will help you to reduce flare ups and inflammation while improving the gut/lymphatic connection. Redefine the standard of care for those facing lymphedema and empower them to take back control.
