I've heard that massaging with ginger oil is good for lymphoedema. It's quite expensive so before I buy has anyone tried it? And did it help? Thanks.

There are lots of 'miracle' cures and devices, oils and rubs and machines to break down fashia and fat all being advertised as 'reducing leg oedema' 'banishing swollen ankles' etc. etc. In the UK and across Europe amazing groups of researchers are exploring how and why lymphoedema occurs, carrying out trials of surgical procedures, medictions and other treatments that may help in the fight against lymphoedema. Is it really likely that a cosmetic company would have cracked the problem? do you not think that if they had they would not have teamed up with a major pharmaceutical company and licensed the product thereby making a fortune rather than advertising it on facebook? Please take care, most of these products are simply money wasting alternatives to good skin care, appropriate massage, prescribed medical grade compression, movement and mainataining a healthy weight, but some are actually dangerous to the superficial lymphatics so vital in lymphoedema management. We have approached the makers of several of these products asking for the evidence that they have gathered to prove the 'clinically effective' claims they make and, as yet, none of them have answered our questions. We will keep asking and will get comments and thoughts from our medical advisors when we become aware of such products but please please please take care.
