Immune system vs Lipoedema

The gentle singing of birds slowly pulled me out of my dream.

The needles of the morning light pierced the twilight of the sleeping silence, and the fresh, crisp air cleverly penetrated inside. I looked away. The orange-gold landscape surfaced more and more among the trees.

-Good morning, -I whispered tenderly, wrapping in a light blue blanket.

The cold, grey apartment quickly filled the glow of candles,

-Mmm, my favourite autumn – I sighed sipping aromatic decoction. I felt the heat spread centimetre by centimetre of my body. Blood begins to flow more freely, and thoughts take on a positive glow.

Autumn, always has the power that with every breeze, it reminds me of my immune system, which is an intelligent, protective shield for the body. Our cells, organs and tissues work together to respond appropriately to dangerous viruses and bacteria. This system is not only in one place in the body, but it also consists of many parts and organs that perform a specific function. These include bone marrow, thymus, spleen, lymph nodes, tonsils, intestine and the nervous system.

I’m LIPOEDEMA GIRL…

  1. I Love food. I love mindful eating. I fuel my body with good nutrients and  provide it with enough water to be able to fully function every day
  2. I love my legs. They are a part of my wonderful body, which I provide love to every day. I take care of my legs, moisturize them, stretch my muscles and give them rest.
  3. I know how to deal with pain. I know this is the only information that my body sends to me. I examine them and find solutions to soothe the pain. I do baths with essential oils, I use Magnesium flakes or Epsom salt. Warm shower massage. I eat the right food. I do yoga and basic stretching. I am aware of my own relationship with the body.
  4. I am open to help and receive positive energy from my environment. I read I love books. I am full of peace, inspiration and joy thanks to them. I’m talking about Lipoedema and I share my experience. I try to educate every day. I am grateful for the help and a good word.
  5. I know my value. I do not care about malicious comments. Life is too beautiful and interesting to waste our energy on anger and despair. I turn every negative experience into positive. I learn from it but I do not think about it for a long time
  6. I am grateful for all the good I have

With love Nutrition vs Lipoedema.

  Till that moment -when your feet touch the floor- you, your body and soul knows – it’s time to start your day.  Smile to yourself , stretch your arms, take a deep breath, and say : that will be my day.
