I researched the "The Perrin Technique" fairly extensively this morning, which stresses the importance of good lymphatic drainage for pwCFS. There's a good thread on this started by Sasha entitled, "Perrin/lymph drainage/massage: makes sense or not?" Interestingly, Raymond Perrin hypothesizes that part of the reason people develop ME/CFS is because hormones are not adequately drained from the body via our lymphatic systems. He also hypothesizes this is the reason more women than men develop CFS, because their bodies have more hormonal issues to deal with. While watching a number of YouTube videos on Dr. Raymond Perrin's ME/CFS hypothesis and treatment approach, I ran into a short video on a very simple lymphatic massage that purportedly can be helpful in making us look more sexy [and I'm assuming improve our hormonal balance at the same time, per Mr. Perrin]. Not often feeling very sexy these days, I think I'm going to give it a try! Getting back to the Perrin treatment, apparently a good number of pwCFS have made some significant improvements by using a variety of lymphatic drainage techniques. It's stressed however, that for most pwCFS, this can precipitate quite a deluge of toxins into our system if done too quickly and/or aggressively, and can easily become too much to handle if it's not done slowly and carefully. The simple lymphatic drainage technique that I'm linking to below sounds like it might just be that slow, methodical way of starting such a program. And who knows, perhaps it'll make us look a little more sexy in the process.
