'Sometimes, the swelling is just too much that it limits my movements and causing goddamn pain. The only consolation I had is my husband helping me with treatments..'
- Rachel, 38, suffering from Lymphedema induced by Breast Cancer
Lymphedema or lymphatic obstruction, is a long-term condition where excess fluid collects in tissues causing swelling. It is often associated with cancer treatments that involves the removal of lymph nodes.
An estimated 250 million people is affected by Lymphedema. It commonly affects the arms and legs, often leads to life-threatening deep skin infections called cellulitis, and remains a lifelong functional problem requiring daily treatment. For this reason, Dr. Chen and Dr. Thompson engineered a plant-based therapy for Lymphedema which is guaranteed to have zero side effects.
