ucher s Broom and Selenium Improve Lipedema: A Retrospective Case Study

Background: Butcher’s broom plant extract has been reported to improve lymphatic flow and the trace mineral, selenium, has been shown to improve lymphedema. This retrospective case study examines the effectiveness of Butcher’s broom in conjunction with selenium to decrease limb volume of a patient with lipedema, a common fat distribution disorder with excess adipose tissue fluid. Methods: Selenium (400 mcg) was initiated 6 days prior to limb volume evaluation utilizing perometry. The patient underwent physical therapy that consisted of manual lymph drainage (MLD) with Histological Variable Manual Technique (HIVAMAT), and compression bandaging. Butcher’s broom (one gram daily) was added on day 95 of treatment in addition to selenium and both were continued through day 293 (end of study).
