RIVERTON, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) -

Is there a way to stimulate the body to heal itself and fight sickness and disease? This teacher is exploring exactly that topic in her community education course at CWC in Riverton tomorrow.

Certified lymphologist Karen Schroeder is coming to Central Wyoming College tomorrow to teach people how to boost their immune systems naturally as well as activate their lymphatic system. One of the simplest ways to do this, is just to take a deep breath.

“Take care of your lymphatic system, breathe deeply more often, think positively, find the joy in life. I’m not saying that you don’t need a doctor, I’m not saying you don’t need medications. Those things are great and they’re useful for what they’re for. They don’t have to be permanent solutions,” mentioned Schroeder.

Schroeder says her inspiration for becoming a lymphologist was the progress her husband made in his health. He was recommended to have double knee surgery, but there was a wait list to get scheduled, and he was invited to a class on the lymph system in the meantime. He attended the class and started doing all the exercises they recommended, including deep breathing. Schroeder says the scans the doctor showed them afterward were the true motivation for her.

“He showed us the scans before, and the scans after, and said ‘I have never seen this, your cartilage is growing back. What are you doing?’ Then my husband showed him the techniques and said ‘well we went to this class to activate our lymphatic system and we’re just doing that.’ For me being analytically minded, to have the doctor say that and see actual cartilage growing back in the knees, that was it. I had to be certified,” emphasized Schroeder.

Schroeder has since been teaching the methods along with lymphatic massage in Riverton and to clients throughout the United States and the world, online.

Schroeder stated that she teaches her clients with her education and personal experience. She said, “Basically teaching them how to reverse disease and conditions. For example I was a lifelong asthmatic and suffered allergies twice a year. Allergy season was a mess, I was snorting and dribbling and wheezing. It finally dawned on me in 2012, I should get rid of my asthma. I worked on it, and now I have no asthma medicine and I have not had seasonal allergies. There have been a couple of times where I’ve gotten a little lazy and I might sneeze a couple times in a season, but I’m not dripping, I’m not snorting, I’m not wheezing. I’m allergy free, so I know the techniques work. I know that the lymphatic system is an awesome system in our body and when we understand how it works and we apply those techniques and give it what it needs, the possibilities are endless.”

Schroeder said the deep breathing and lymphatic techniques detoxify the body. However she stated that disease thrives in an anaerobic (low oxygen) and acidic atmosphere. Stress and some other activities can cause us to constrict our muscles and lower our oxygen intake. “If you’re outside, take off the mask, breathe in some fresh air, get some vitamin D, that sunshine is so good for you,” noted Schroeder.

The class is Saturday, October 17th at the CWC Health and Science building, room 206, or via Zoom. Registration has been extended and can be done at It is from 1:00-5:00 p.m. and you must be at least 16 years old to attend.
