Boosting Your Immune System Through Movement

March 19, 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET

The lymph organs play many roles in the body, including fluid balance and immunity. Join this webinar to learn more about how mindfulness and gentle movement can boost your immune system by increasing lymphatic flow. Dr. Martha Eddy originally developed these movements to activate positive immune responses for Moving For Life (MFL), an exercise program originally designed for cancer recovery and now used by both older adults and people of any age concerned about cancer and health.

You will learn:

  • Simple movements that will improve your immune response
  • Why lymphatic flow is so important for overall health
  • How the immune system is influenced by exercise
  • Movement that reduces swelling and lymphedema, a common side effect of cancer treatment

There will be a live Q&A at the end of the webinar.

Interested in the topic but can’t attend live? Register anyway, and we’ll send you the recording.
