Lymphedema is a very common and serious condition, affecting over 3 million Americans. Most patients in the Western Hemisphere developed lymph edema lymphedema after surgery and/or radiation therapy for various cancers (breast, uterus, prostate, bladder, lymphoma, melanoma) in which case it is refereed to as secondary lymphedema. Others develop it without obvious causes at different stages in life (primary lymphedema), and still others develop it after trauma or deep vein thrombosis. In third world countries, parasites (filariasis) account for millions of cases.
In the United States, the highest incidence of lymphedema is observed following breast cancer surgery, particularly among those who undergo radiation therapy following axillary lymph node dissection.

The various manual lymphatic methods available to therapists do a reasonable, to good job of opening the surface lymphatic using a therapeutic technique known as manual lymph drainage developed in Europe 25 years ago. Through delicate massaging techniques it was highly effective at reducing lymph-based disorders, but the process is very labor intensive. The tradeoff is that the deeper lymphatic channels can become more stressed and engorged with the additional lymph forced into this area. This can be very detrimental to the improvement we are seeking.
The use of a Inert Gas Ionization Instrument in conjunction with the proper Lymphatic Decongestive Therapy therapeutic techniques can provide results far beyond that of manual lymph manipulation or use of tight fitting garments by addressing the trapped and sticky proteins directly.

The effect created by the light & sound vibration and flow of electrons as they are ionized through the treatment head cause a disassociation of the trapped proteins within the interstitium. Trapped proteins in the interstitium hold water and cause swelling and blockage as the thread like vessels swell beyond their capacity, and can no longer effectively pass along the lymph through its normal means of transport in the lymphatic system. Trapped proteins (not to be confused with nutrient proteins) are highly electrical in nature and when they are exposed to the discharging ions in the treatment head they become disassociation and release their bond between themselves then releasing the stagnate lymph. This allows the lymph vessels to release the excess blocked, stagnate or retained fluid and to flow out into its normal filtration and reabsorption channels.
