LEMONS - Good for your Health

Feel Good Food -  It really tastes amazing!

How can you use the whole lemon without waste?

Simple.. place the washed lemon in the freezer section of your refrigerator. Once the lemon is frozen, get your grater, and shred the whole lemon (no need to peel it) and sprinkle it on top of your foods.

Sprinkle it to your vegetable salad, ice cream, soup, cereals, noodles, spaghetti sauce, rice, sushi, fish dishes, whisky, wine.... the list is endless. All of the foods will unexpectedly have a wonderful taste, something that you may have never tasted before.

Most likely, you only think of lemon juice and vitamin C. Not anymore.

What's the major advantage of using the whole lemon other than preventing waste and adding new taste to your dishes?

Lemon peels contain as much as 5 to 10 times more vitamins than the lemon juice itself.

As you know, the lemon tree is known for its varieties of lemons and limes. You can eat the fruit in different ways: you can eat the pulp, juice press, prepare drinks, sorbets, pastries, etc... It is credited with many virtues, but the most interesting is the effect it produces on cysts and tumours.

It is considered also as an anti microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi, effective against internal parasites and worms, it regulates blood pressure which is too high and an antidepressant combats stress and nervous disorders.

* The source of this information is fascinating: it comes from one of the largest drug manufacturers in the world, says that after more than 20 laboratory tests since 1970, the extracts revealed that it destroys the malignant cells in 12 cancers, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas...

So, give those lemons a good wash, freeze them and grate them, EAT THEM.

Your whole body will love you for it!!!!!

Lymphoedema and Cruising

Click to see what happens to your feet on a long cruise


If you suffer from any form of Lymphoedema or very swollen ankles you could regret going on a cruise!


Going on a cruise has the same effect on the body as flying, when you travel on the sea you take away gravity and you don`t have the same pressure on your veins, this allows more fluid to leak into your tissues causing swelling especially around the feet, ankles and lower legs.

Prolonged periods at sea will exaggerate and make any swelling worse, particularly around the ankles as they are furthest from your heart.

When you lose gravity you also lose pressure around the main pump of your lymphatic system in your stomach. This is why you will experience feeling more bloated than ususal and swollen around the abdomen.


Keep to short cruises or stay on terra firma and holiday with your feet firmly on the ground and you will have happier healthier ankles and legs!

You are 75% Water


The word LYMPH is Greek for WATER!

The human body can retain 90lbs of excess fluids - Guyton Medical Textbook of Physiology

5 gallons of excess fluid in abdominal cavity = 40lbs

The body will retain water when you are constipated to dilute poisons.

Water is necesary to flush toxins but if your salt intake is greater the body will retain water as salt attracts it.

If you retain water WATCH FOOD LABELS

High in salt  = 0.5g or 1.25g per 100g

Low in salt  = 0.1g or 0.25g per 100g

The Human Body Facts

You`re amazing

It takes your food seven seconds to get from your mouth to your stomach.  

One human hair can support 6.6 pounds. 

Human thighbones are stronger than concrete. 

A woman's heart beats faster than a man's.

Fat transportation


How big your lymphatic system is and how it moves fat!

Your body has an estimated 2 and half million miles of lymph capillaries and transport vessels in its system.

1lb of fat needs 8 miles of capillaries to transport. You have between 400 - 500 lymph nodes in and around your stomach and up to 1,000 all over your body.

The large FAT molecules from your food is collected by the lacteals of the lymphatic system directly into the small intestine - this turns lymph fluid milky white in colour and is called `chlye`. It was first discovered in 1622 by Gaspard Asselli an Italian pysician.

Trans fats are the equivalent of eating a rubber band compared to an avocado. This is why they are trying to ban them, we know how bad they are, they are literally clogging up our lymphatic transportation and immunity is impaired.

Your lymphatic system also transports waste and toxins through your body including poisons. A poison dilates the blood capillaries which opens up the tiny pores (like shock) and lets the blood proteins filter into the spaces around the cells faster than the lymphatic system can remove them.

Bowel cancer is less easily detectable but more common in the overweight. Poisons kept in the body in the bowels are already in the danger zone.


Dull ache in this area means sluggish liver

The Liver is the biggest and next to the heart the most important organ in the body. The lobes of the liver are made up of tiny lobules just visible to the naked eye.

Connected directly to the lymphatic system, each lobule within the liver is surrounded by lymphoid tissue and a system of lymph vessels are present in each lobule.

The most active organ of the body because it works 24/7 keeping our bodies system working and our bodily functions in control by;

  • Producing urea and uric acid - removes waste
  • Converts glucose to glycogen - sugar regulation
  • Desaturates fat - important for weight loss
  • Uses energy and produces heat
  • Secretes bile for digestion to take place
  • Storage for Vitamins B12, A, D, E, K and Iron
  • Synthesises Vitamin A
  • Forms the plasma proteins and most of the blood clotting factors
  • Detoxicates drugs and noxious substances
  • Metabolises ethanol in alcoholic drinks
  • Inactivates hormones, including insulin, glucagon, cortisol, aldosterone, thyroid and sex hormones.

You don`t have to be a scientist to realise if your liver is sluggish it will have a degenerative effect on your health and well being.

MLD and specific massage movements can revitalise and help cleanse the liver, keep it functioning efficiently and you will certainly feel the benefit.

Signs of a sluggish liver can be swelling, puffy eyes and a feeling of general tiredness, lethargy and no energy, maybe with a dull ache at bottom of ribs. Help avoid diabetes - get a healthier liver today.

If you have been on many tablets or take a lot of tablets for certain conditions over the years this will also effect the liver.

If you want to lose weight a healthy liver can help you achieve this.

If you have digestive problems it maybe that the liver isn`t doing its job.


What is pitting?


Pitting is way of testing for severe fluid retention, called Oedema, and if it is severe it can be the first sign that you may be suffering from the condition called Lymphoedema 

If the sign shows positive then you do have a chronic fluid retention problem, which needs to be treated, immediately.

To test if you have this problem called PITTING:

- With the thumb press very firmly on the that is area swollen and count to 30, when you take your thumb away if the skin stays indented then it is positive (as shown in picture)


How your body fights cancer - NATURALLY


How your body fights CANCER naturally!

Lymphocytes, Granulocytes, B Cells, T Cells, these white blood cells are part of your immune system.

As well as in the blood, lymphocytes are regulated and travel around our body in the lymphatic system. Lymphocytes are in your lymph nodes (or glands as they are called) and the body will increase their production during an infection or attack as long as it can flow properly.

But how do Lymphocytes fight cancer and why is so important to increase lymph flow?

These cells give off specific chemicals that destroy and fight any infection, disease, or foreign partical deemed an invader in the body. Known as immunity!

The same chemicals produced naturally in your lymph nodes are used to fight cancer, during cancer therapy treatment.

If your lymph flow is slowed or prevented to flow freely it stops the body from sending these cells to fight infection, disease or cancer cells, hence the importance of a healthy free flowing lymphatic system!




Good for you!

One of the American Cancer Society's key dietary recommendations to reduce the risk of cancer is to include cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli.

Sulforaphane is an isothiocyanate, an organic chemical compound that has been shown to inhibit the growth of carcinogen-induced cancer. Sulforaphane is found in cruciferous vegetables and is especially high in broccoli. Sulforaphane works by increasing the enzymes in your liver that destroy the cancer inducing chemicals you ingest in food or encounter in the environment

Sulforaphane has been found in laboratory studies to inhibit the growth of human breast cancer cells and stop the growth of human ovarian cancer cells. High intake of broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables is associated with reduced risk of aggressive prostate cancer, and with a decrease in gastrointestinal and bladder cancers. The protective effect of cruciferous vegetable consumption on lung cancer has also been suggested.

Overcooking broccoli and cruciferous vegetables will dramatically lower the amount of cancer protective phytochemicals.

"The best way to prepare all these vegetables is to steam it lightly about 3 or 4 minutes, until they are is edible tough-tender."

Some other Cruciferous vegetables are; brussel sprouts, kale, cabbage, cauliflower, bok choy, chinese broccoli, horseradish, watercress, rocket, radish, garden cress.
