Lymphatic Obstruction is also known as Lymphedema and is a result of fluid accumulation in the intestines and the aftermath is inflammation in the arms, legs and other parts of the body. The condition can be divided into two stages primary and secondary. In the former condition the lymphatic vessels are either totally absent or are malfunctioning. However, in the latter stage the lymph nodes have been removed; due to whatever reason. The symptoms are quite obvious and the thing to be alert is to be aware of undue swelling and reduced flexibility. These symptoms usually occur in the wrist and ankle. There are some treatments in other forms of medications for this ailment; however, herbal treatment is the most effective.
Plantains are very good in treating Lymphedema; as they are binding. Due to this they absorb all the unnecessary fluid accumulation. The inflicted person should eat atleast 3-4 plantains everyday or as an alternative drink plantain shake 4 times daily. The symptoms of Lymphedema would be reduced in four weeks and complete cure is possible if the treatment is continued longer. Although, there is no authentic cure for this disease, however; plantains have helped a score of people and they would vouch for it.
