Title : Natures pharmacy and lymphoedema - Case studies on how essential oils help


Lymphoedema occurs when the lymphatic system does not function as it should. We all know that the lymphatic system is a serious network of channels and glands that run throughout our body, which actually helps fight infection and remove excessive build up. It is a long term chronic condition that causes the tissues in the body to swell. It normally effects the arms and legs, but it can occur anywhere in the body. Sunita’s commitment to treating disease and symptoms of disease with the help of ‘Natures Pharmacy’, the magic of organic essential oils to support and heal the body, mind and. spirit, has shown her that they do indeed work miracles as a complementary therapy to support Lymphoedema. Some of her case studies have profound evidence that Clinical Aromatherapy together with other Holistic approaches can support the body to fight back. In this presentation Sunita will share those case studies and explain how essential oils target our cells and tissues and support our Immune system. Lymphoedema is a debilitating condition that affects the lymph nodes, which could get quite severe if left untreated. It may not be reversible but can definitely be managed with alternate therapies, which is a great option for long term treatment.
