“Every Woman’s Fear” from Body Talk Never Lies “

Sometime ago I attended a workshop where the facilitator used the term FEAR as an acronym for “false evidence appearing real.” No subject matter invokes more fear in women then that of breast cancer – statistically affecting one out of five women in the U.S. Mammograms and Thermography screenings are mostly routine included in physical exams, especially for women over the age of 50. That said, these tests are also tools in proactive healthcare. This next case history speaks to every woman’s plight! A client in her early fifties called me in a perturbed voice. She had had a mammogram earlier that day and her doctor asked her to wait while he reviewed her mammogram results. Several minutes later, her doctor informed her that he found a suspicious shadow in her left breast and wanted her to have a second mammogram. She did not agree to the second mammogram and reluctantly called me and asked, “Natalie, what should I do?”

I advised her to remain positive and she should consider a lymphatic drainage massage followed by a colon hydrotherapy session.

She exclaimed,

“What is lymphatic drainage?”

I explained that:

It is a specific kind of massage modality with a technique that assists in decongesting the lymph glands and drains pools of fluid around the lymph nodes. Plan on two hours with the colon hydrotherapy to follow to facilitate moving out the toxins stimulated by the lymphatic drainage massage.”

She scheduled the appointment on a Tuesday and on Wednesday morning, the day after, scheduled the second mammogram. By Friday, she received the results from her doctor who said, “You know, the second mammogram showed up negative.” The shadow from the first test had moved out! Obviously, the shadow seen on the first mammogram was lymph congestion. As the fluid removal was facilitated by the drainage massage, it could then be expelled through colon hydroptherapy. Her results were now “normal”. My client was ecstatic, and tears of happiness replaced tears based on fears.

Lymphatic congestion may be present due to a number of factors such as lack of proper hydration because our bodies are made up 60 percent water and the rest muscles and bones. When we are not getting enough water, the body will compensate by retaining it. Lack of movement and exercise also adds to lymph congestion. Dietary concerns with foods high in sodium and acidic foods and dairy products add to the retention of fluids and the inflammation of the body as well as lymphatic overload!
