When I found out last summer that the strange swelling in my right leg was due to lymphedema, the first thing I learned about it was that “lymphedema cannot be cured”, “there is no cure for lymphedema”, and “lymphedema can be treated but not cured“.
Of course, this was not an acceptable option for my forever optimist self, a young woman, a stage performer, a dancer and traveler.
But this is the current view of standard medicine on this disease, therefore it must be true, right?
Fortunately, I have also found testimonials of people telling about how they have gotten rid of their lymphedema. One website here, another blog there, some forum comments, references for an alternative practitioner – not many, but they do exist.
However, such a story is only called in medical science as “anecdotal evidence“, and regarded as non-scientific or even pseudo-scientific, it is contrary to scientific evidence or science-based evidence, and is a logical fallacy, and therefore is not counted as an actual result or achievement (=medical science doesn’t care if your neighbor healed his incurable illness with his mom’s herb teas, that you could witness with your own eyes.)
Now you can decide to wait for Big Science to come up with solutions and one day, maybe, if that will still arrive in your life, maybe they will come up with something that would cure lymphedema, and that “something” will have to be an FDA approved drug, that’s what they are interested in – or you can decide to take a simple, practical, real life approach: find someone who has cured the same illness that you have, and follow their footsteps.
So, if there ARE patients who did cure their lymphedema, doesn’t it mean that lymphedema IS curable?
This is what would logically follow – that’s my humble guess.
A man who has cured his “incurable” lymphedema
In this writing, I only want to mention one young man whose story somehow made it into my mailbox, where he tells about what steps did he take to combat his lymphedema – and eventually he defeated it!
Isn’t that amazing?
Half a year later after his article, I asked him on Facebook for an update, how was it now and this is how he responded in a message:
“Yes… my lymphedema is completely gone!
I gotta credit good diet and exercise for helping to rid my body of lymphedema !!!” (Aug 31, 2015)
This was so inspiring for me and confirmed what I had believed: that yes, it IS curable. Thank you Steve!
In the first days of August, just a bit more than one month ago, I implemented only a very few and very simple changes, and could see almost immediate results. No, I haven’t healed my legs yet, they are still swollen, but definitely much less and there are other, significant improvements as well. Stay tuned for my next post!

Now, I was told by 3 doctors so far and by many patients and I read countless of studies, articles and statements by the medical profession about lymphedema being ‘incurable” – but I tend to believe in the old cliche: “Where there is a will, there is a way.”, and the story of this man serves as a proof.
So I am very excited to experiment on myself, and by all the good things that are already happening!
What about you?
Do you think that lymphedema cannot be cured, and if you have it, do you accept that you will have to live with it till the end of your days, because that’s what you have heard from everybody – or do you have just a tiny little spark of hope that yes, if you really wanted to, you could get rid of it, for good?
