The waste produced by processes that happen between blood capillaries and cells have to be removed by the Lymphatic System.
By applying a range of specialised, rhythmic and extremely gentle pumping techniques directly to the skin movement of lymphatic fluid is stimulated.
In conditions where tissues are congested (puffy, watery or hard), painful, bruised or scarred MLD is light enough not to cause further damage. The rhymical application of the hands can result in deep relaxation, especially as pain is never caused - indeed the constantly changing pressures with every single hand movement may interrupt pain signals.
By encouraging the removal of toxins and excess, stagnant, connective tissue fluid the skin gets its nutrients more quickly and begins to look fantastic. Typically you can expect skin to look clearer and feel softer, eyes to be brighter, dark areas below the eyes to lighten, puffiness and congestion to reduce and a more defined jaw-line. Head, eye, ear, nose, mouth, dental, throat, sinus and skin problems resulting from lymphatic related congestion can respond positively.
Lymphoedema is the name given to swelling caused if part of the lymphatic system is removed, damaged or missing.
Primary Lymphoedema can be inherited or happen at any age without any family history and no obvious cause.
Secondary Lymphoedema can develop after lymph node removal or if the lymphatics are damaged by trauma, injury, infection, surgery or radiotherapy. MLD - a range of movements is applied to the skin by hand in a way that stimulates the lymphatic system and the movement of lymph away from the swollen area to a healthy part of the body that can drain the fluid. Compression Bandaging or Garments - after MLD it is necessary for the treated area to be bandaged or for compression garments to be worn. Skin Care - specific products are advised, also how to avoid infections or circumstances that may cause damage to the affected area. Any area of damage following injury, infection or surgery can have an element of localised oedema (swelling). My Shropshire practice is Ludlow based (SY8), located just off Sheet Road with roadside parking immediately to the front of the property. The results of the treatment were apparent even after the first of three sessions and the way she worked involved no discomfort whatsoever. About the author: Professor Harvey leads innovative research into the causes of chronic sinus disease and novel therapies to manage the condition. As nose and sinus specialist, I’m often asked for advice, by parents, on managing recurrent respiratory symptoms during childhood. Unfortunately, the medical marvel of antibiotic development, which changed the mortality associated with severe bacterial infections such as pneumonia, sepsis and meningitis, is now over applied in our community. Over a series of postings we will discuss the expectations, symptom management and prevention strategies for childhood respiratory events. About the author: Sarah Danhauer Osborne is a certified pediatric nurse practitioner (CPNP) with Owensboro Health’s One Health Pediatric Center. While everyone knows cigarette smoking is not good for the smoker, it is often overlooked how detrimental smoking can be for the people surrounding a smoker. All of this means that there’s only one way to keep children safe with regards to tobacco-related health problems: Don’t smoke around them and don’t let them be exposed to tobacco smoke.
Exposure to tobacco smoke is harmful to children before they’re even born, and these risks continue into infancy and childhood. SIDS, where children suddenly die because they stop breathing, is a problem that is not fully understood by medical science. One of the biggest shifts in the smoking population is people switching from tobacco to vaporizers or electronic cigarettes.
According to a study conducted by Boston University, cells in the windpipe of people using electronic cigarettes tended to grow faster than normal cells should, a change strongly connected to cancer. While that’s not definitive proof that e-cigarettes are harmful, it is definitely a cause for concern. If you are a smoker, one of the absolute best things you can do for your health is to quit smoking.
There’s no denying that quitting tobacco can be a real battle, but it’s a battle you don’t have to take on alone. To learn more about how to quit smoking or to find out about available resources, visit quitnowkentucky.org or call 1-800-QUIT-NOW (800-784-8669).
It seems counter intuitive, but indoor dry air caused by heating your home can cause increased nasal and sinus secretions. If you have curtains or drapes, be sure to keep them as dust free as possible with vacuuming and possibly professional cleaning if needed. The Temporomandibular joints are the most important joints in the body.  Its’ important functions include chewing, biting, talking, singing and kissing. It sometimes needs help - especially when challenged by infection or trauma (physical or emotional). Increased flow can help the body deal with infections and damage more efficiently and effectively. My neck soon started to look and feel more normal again and the massage technique she used on the scar tissue was also making it look and feel better.
I had received treatment from someone in Switzerland with different training for MLD, and was rather suspicious, as I did not want anyone to wreck the help I had had.


One year I tried to give up the treatments, and when I returned she was not in any way judgemental, simply listened to my point of view, then firmly gave me hers. Instead of being someone who finds walking difficult I can hike all day long and run after my grand children. As program head, Rhinology and Skull Base Surgery, at UNSW and Macquarie University, he is asked to speak nationally and internationally on changing the traditional paradigms in upper airway and sinus care. The symptoms of nasal discharge, congestion and cough, are common during childhood and may even appear persistent as the break between events is short.
There is a growing concern that modern health therapies applied inappropriately and unnecessarily to our population, and especially children, is not only wasteful but harmful to health.
This enzyme arises from white blood cells (neutrophils) and presents 5% of the dry weight neutrophils4.
Communal day-care, centralised schooling and urban living all provide much closer human contact at an earlier stage in life compared to our ancestors.
The first Surgeon General’s report on smoking and its impact on health were published in 1964.
If you have ever considered quitting, or helping a friend or family member quit, there’s no time like the present! That means things like limiting smoking to one room of the house, keeping a window open while smoking in the car or smoking outside the house don’t make a big difference when it comes to protecting children. That’s why you can smell tobacco smoke inside a smoker’s car, on their clothing, or even in your hair when you’ve been around a smoker.
If you can smell tobacco smoke that means your child is being exposed to it, even if no one’s smoking right then and there.
According to the Surgeon General’s 2014 report on tobacco-associated health risks, more than 100,000 babies have died in the past 50 years because of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), complications from prematurity, complications from low birth weight and other health problems connected to smoke exposure during pregnancy or infancy.
However, we do understand that certain things increase the risk for SIDS, and smoking is one of the biggest risks. Repeated ear infections can lead to a need for children to have tubes surgically implanted in their ears. The health effects of smoking are cumulative; meaning the risk of problems grows with repeated exposure to tobacco smoke over time.
Of the 20 million people who have died from smoking-related illnesses since the first Surgeon General’s report in 1964, 2.5 million were nonsmokers who became sick because of exposure to secondhand smoke. These have the obvious benefit of not leaving their surroundings smelling like tobacco smoke, but there is growing evidence to suggest that these are not completely risk-free. My advice is that e-cigarettes shouldn’t be considered “absolutely safe” for use, especially around children. The benefits won’t just be felt by you, but also for everyone around you, especially children.
There are a great deal of resources available out there, including programs that can provide nicotine replacement for free or at reduced costs, as well as options that help keep you accountable and increase your chance of success. It won’t just be good for your loved ones, but also good for you, and will go a long way to helping make sure you’re around to spend time with your children, grandchildren and other loved ones for years to come.

This is due to the mucous glands producing moisture to combat the dryness, and at times over secreting. This will not only help get rid of allergens and irritants, but significantly lower the risk of a dryer fire. This typically occurs when the ligaments that normally hold the disk onto the lower jawbone become stretched or torn due to a traumatic injury. Jason Pehling at the TMJ and Orofacial Disorders Center located in Seattle, Washington is the Northwest’s recognized expert in the treatment of Temporomandibular Joint disorders (TMD), headaches, facial pain, Bruxism or teeth grinding, and dental management of snoring and sleep apnea. A friend had heard that Deborah Berry gave lymphatic drainage treatment and my consultant said he was happy for me to have it.
My consultant was surprised at my progress and was very interested to hear about the treatment. She is extremely thoughtful and precise, and always offers me valuable information when asked for it. While there are some significant medical problems that can produce true ‘persistent’ nasal symptoms, with no return to normal function in between, most respiratory events during childhood are ‘episodic’ and represent part of the normal exposure and immune development that occurs during these years. A great example of this is the overuse of antibiotics to manage recurrent respiratory exacerbation in childhood.
As a parent myself, its normal behaviour to want to help our children when they are ill, however, understanding the nature, duration and frequency for these mucus producing events is critical to ensuring that care or interventions we offer our children are both safe, effective and appropriate. One of the resulting effects is frequent viral respiratory events, as multiple serotypes are quickly transmitted.

I frequently recommend the use of daily nasal irrigations to help patients control their symptoms in addition to medications.


Antihistamines and decongestants are popular options to fight back against allergy symptoms. If not for yourself, consider quitting for the young people in your life, and here are some reasons why.
The odor that lingers is because of those chemicals becoming airborne again as you move, and is called “third hand smoke.” Research from the American Academy of Pediatrics and The Mayo Clinic has shown that this smoke residue is as, or more, harmful as secondhand smoke.
Coughs and colds can cause children to miss school, often affecting parents because someone has to stay home with the child and children with high smoke exposure have a harder time getting over a cold. This tells us is that e-cigarettes are still causing cellular changes that we know are connected to cancer. Until we know more, the safest course of action is not to expose children to either e-cigarettes or tobacco smoke. His special interests include chronic sinusitis, tinnitus, vertigo and upper airway allergies. If your house air is too dry, consider using a saline nasal spray every few hours during the day and petroleum based nasal gel at night. Anti allergy covers are available, and after washing towels, be sure they are dried well before rehanging in your bathroom. Additionally, when the mouth is closed there is the connection between up to 16 pairs of teeth.
The frequency of these events is 4 episodes a year5(Table) and duration of viral events commonly 10 days6. She pursued an interest in allergies to help treat chronic rhinosinusitis patients who are not completely helped by traditional medical and surgical interventions. Even if a patient does not have allergies, they may have a number of environmental irritants that will cause nasal symptoms. From there, a person can expect to feel more rejuvenated in the morning and have more energy during the day. Bronchitis is painful and can lead to pneumonia, which is potentially fatal to children, and asthma is worsened by smoke exposure and can cause a need for hospitalization for breathing treatments. By applying nasal moisture, the natural response of production of excessive mucus will be curtailed. Therefore, the position and function of one TMJ affects the position, function of the other TMJ; and the dental bite affects the position, and function of both TMJ and vice versa. TMJ arthritis and damage to the cells that make the joint fluid will also increase the likelihood of a disk displacement.The disk works as the shock absorber for the joint, and when it is out of position, this can lead to arthritis in the jaw joint and adhesions to the disk.
I intentionally avoid the use of the term ‘majority of events’ as this is misleading and an unnecessary ‘disclaimer’ as the number of viral respiratory events that become bacterial and need treatment is much less than 1%.
Green mucus is not a sign of ‘bacterial’ infection but simply an immune response from our children.
Thus the average ‘healthy’ child should expect to have 40 days or more with respiratory symptoms (and green mucus) as part of their normal immune growth and development. She is successfully treating a variety of allergy conditions with sublingual immunotherapy in addition to traditional methods. These days, a number of health conditions can cause fatigue, but few people seem to consider allergies as the culprit.
The immune system targets allergens, and this frequent immune response disrupts the body in various ways.
Those that suffer from severe allergies can still reduce their fatigue and other symptoms in noticeable ways!
As the TMJ articulates with the skull, changes in head posture can also affect TMJ function. Unfortunately, 50% of children still leave an consultation from a local family doctor with a course of antibiotics1 and while this is an improvement from the 1990’s, when sadly, up to 75% of all antibiotic prescriptions were used on children2, it still remains unacceptably too high. My practice is in Colorado, so we are constantly battling the dry conditions associated with living in a semiarid desert.
Injuries to the neck such as during a whiplash injury will alter TMJ mechanics and can result in jaw pain and dysfunction. Chacko has a special interest in food allergies, severe hayfever, refractory sinus disease and asthma. The tongue position in speech and swallowing and the pharyngeal airway can also alter TMJ position and function. There is a higher incidence of TMJ disorders in young women and estrogen has been shown to modulate pain and inflammation within the TMJ.
Additionally, at times it will shift the bite so that a person is not able to close their teeth into their normal positions. Women also have a higher incidence of generalized ligament hypermobility which can influence the TMJ.
When patients want holistic approaches to help their symptoms, what can be more holistic than salt water treatments? Stretching of the ligaments, breakdown in the bones (arthritis) or cartilage, scar tissue formation, or changes in the lubrication system (synovial fluid) can cause the disk to become stuck out of position leading to pain, jaw locking, jaw clicking and popping, and bite shifting.
