“We are different in our approach to lymphedema. We aim to provide hope and understanding of the lymphatic system through knowledge and experience.” – Lymph Logic
In early July before I was struck with an illness that took me offline for the better part of 8 weeks, I had the most incredible opportunity to sit down with one of my favorite people in the lymphatic world and also make a new friend!
Anita Bakke, a CLT, has been in my group since its inception in 2015 and early on would contribute valuable key pieces of information. For almost 3 years (I think, or maybe 2), I had no idea that she was a lymphedema therapist!! She hid it well, never explicitly saying “As a CLT, …” or “I tell my patients..” when commenting on various topics. Imagine my shock when she took off her super hero mask! In all seriousness, we have had her as a guest speaker before, so it was exciting to get to work with her on this podcast. It’s always good to catchup with a longtime friend.
In meeting Dr. Mary Al-Saleh I can see why they are a match made in heaven. Dr. Mary writes the following, “My purpose is simple, I want to serve the highest good. My goal is to spread knowledge about lymphedema wherever I am physically located. I am humbled and filled with gratitude each day that I am able to help someone.” She was absolutely wonderful.
One of these days I’m packing my bags and headed to see to them!

Podcasts 1 & 2
We talked and laughed so hard that our podcast had to be split into two sessions. I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I did speaking with them both.
