Welcome to the Lymphie Strong blog and the #MOVETHATLYMPH Challenge for Lymphedema & Lymphatic Health Series.
What is #MOVETHATLYMPH?
#MOVETHATLYMPH was inspired by the fact that everyone has a lymphatic system. Whether you have lymphatic disease or not, the human body was designed to #MOVETHATLYMPH because none of us have a lymphatic pump. We must use our muscles to contract and move.
The #MOVETHATLYMPH Challenge Series was created in 2017 because exercise in any form is highly beneficial to the management of lymphedema. It’s a platform to get moving, stay moving and commit to your lymphatic health by doing something active, every day, for at least 10 minutes for 365 days straight. If you can do more, that’s great. Inspire your fellow Lymphies along the way.
For example, have you ever wished that you could go to the gym and workout with somebody that has lymphedema too? That understands how critically important it is to wear compression and not ask “Why do you wear that sleeve or stocking?” To find a virtual workout community, we invite you to join The Lymphedema Running & Fitness Club. All that is required is that you answer the questionnaire and be impacted by lymphedema in some aspect of your life.
