i do the trampoline. Also working out at your highest intensity helps. It may seem weird, but i also brush my skin. start at your legs and go up toward your heart. Do each arm toward your heart and then lightly up the belly. That tends to get my lymph moving as well.

I would think eating a diet with lots of fresh whole vegetables and fruit would be a great way to "cleanse" the lymph system.

I too have heard that jumping on a trampoline helps with lymph drainage. Sounds like a good excuse to jump on the trampoline with the kids :)

I don't know about a specific diet or foods to be avoided or eaten, but where it comes to exercise, I would think that it would depend on just what the problem is. This is something that you really need to talk with your Dr about. For some problems, gentle exercise is called for, moving the arms and legs, rather than vigorous, but again i urge you to talk with your Dr.

I have had some lymphatic problems since having surgery. Bouncing up and down on a small trampoline seems to help. I got the idea from a friend who is a nurse practitioner.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, cumba Mexicana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, danzón, Cuban rumba, ballroom rumba
