I'm inspired to apply the knowledge!

Michelle D.

After taking Lymphedema Nutrition School I now feel so well informed and I understand what I need to do to help myself. In the past I have found myself overwhelmed with information by looking at different sources that I ended up not engaging. Lymphedema Nutrition School and Jean's style of teaching has made everything fall into place. I particularly like how she explains in layman’s terms how our bodies work and her approach in encouraging us to watch our own bodies and learn from what is happening. It’s also really helpful how Jean talk's about making our own decisions, for example, I can have takeaway if I want, but I need to decide if it’s worth it or not. Listening to each other’s experiences and Jean's feedback and tips are a great way of improving knowledge and inspires me to apply the knowledge. Also, the guided hypnotherapy at the end of each class is great!

I can see the light in the forest!

Marg M.

I was very overwhelmed when I made the decision to enroll in Lymphedema Nutrition School. Overwhelmed with life , all the info I was reading and various medical perspectives. I knew I was missing an important "key" and was tired of working so hard and only keeping the lymphedema almost managed and not losing weight. Lymphedema Nutrition School has been life changing for me. My MLD therapist noticed a big change in me, physically and emotionally. When we are done I will sign up with Jean for one on one weight loss sessions to continue my journey. I was sitting in the middle of a forest and couldn't see the pathway. I wanted someone to drag me out of the forest. You have lit up the pathway so that I can find my way out. I have to do it and with the awareness you and the group are sharing I finally have the hope that I see the clearing.

I'm learning so much!

Joy T.

At first, I was thinking, "what?! No eating plan?" And now, I'm just so grateful. Because you give us all the tools to make empowered choices. And clearly, for me, the last 2 weeks have been so helpful. I'm learning so much -- this really is an awesome course! I feel like you're giving us great info in bite-sized pieces so it's not too overwhelming. Also, I love the group format. I've learned so much from my fellow attendees.

So worth the time and money invested for Lymphedema Nutrition School!

Nancy A.

This program was so valuable! Instead of listening to other lymphedema patients say “you should eat this”, “don’t eat that”, “this diet will help” – here was the one place where I could focus on me. With a complete, comprehensive approach to many aspects of nutrition, Jean guided us through a path of learning, understanding, watching/feeling our individual bodies and making choices/decisions that work for me. Not only is my “lymphie leg” happy, my whole body is smiling at the improvements made!! So worth the time and money invested for Lymphedema Nutrition School.

    Yes. All classes will be recorded. If you have a question, but can't attend, you can send me your question ahead of time.

  • Other than attending class, what else do I have to do?

    Each of the classes, begins with a 2-question survey to gauge your knowledge and current eating habits regarding that weeks topic. There will be a "backgrounder" that you can read about the topic and sometimes some additional reading like a related blog post. Then you will attend the live session. During class, you will be asked to set a goal for yourself related to that topic. During the week, you will fill in your "Trigger Tracker" that will allow you to be accountable and also bring some awareness to your lymphedema triggers, food cravings and other important aspect of your health.

  • Why should I take this course?

    The Lymphedema Nutrition School is designed with several key goals in mind. 1. To learn about the research around diet, nutrition and lymphedema. 2. To determine your lymphedema food triggers. 3. To reduce your sugar intake and cravings. 4. To help with weight loss, weight maintenance or health at any size. 5. To receive guidance, support and accountability for your goals.

    Yes. During the live class itself, there is time for you to give an update or share your goals for the week. There is also a private Facebook group just for students and alumni of the Lymphedema Nutrition School. You can ask me questions there. You can also email me anytime at jean@jeanlamantia.com. I want to make sure you are happy with the Lymphedema Nutrition School, so please reach out with any questions or concerns.

  • Will you be teaching the ketogenic diet

    My course is not designed around the ketogenic diet. It is designed around a low sodium, low fat, anti-inflammatory diet. But I know many people with lymphedema are interested in ketogenic eating, which will also work as we can design it to be anti-inflammatory. If you want to do the ketogenic diet while working through the Lymphedema Nutrition School then you are most welcome.

  • What currency is the course in?

    The course investment is $395 Canadian dollars. If you are in the U.S. or U.K. you can pay using your credit card and your card will convert for you. The cost will be approximately $315 U.S. or £230.

  • Will the classes be covered by my insurance?

    While it's possible your private insurance will cover the cost of the classes, many don't cover virtual classes. If this is important, you should check with them first. If you need, I can provide a receipt with a breakdown of the dates and the cost per class as well as my registration number for the College of Dietitians of Ontario and the Commission on Dietetic Registration.

  • Is there a refund policy?

    After class 2, if you aren't happy, then let me know and you will be refunded your money less a $50 admin fee.
