FAQ

  • Will the classes be covered by my insurance?

    It's possible your private insurance will cover the cost of the classes. If this is important, you should check with them first. I will 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. In the U.S. few insurance companies cover virtual nutrition counselling.

  • 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 this. If you want to do the ketogenic diet while working through the Lymphedema Nutrition School then you are most welcome. If there is interest, I can add an additional class later in the course to talk about the ketogenic diet and how to do it properly.

  • If I can't attend a class live will it be recorded?

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

  • How is the program delivered?

    As part of the Lymphedema Nutrition School, you will attend a weekly class delivered live via Zoom. If you can't make the class, then a recording will be sent to you. You "attend" class my clicking on the zoom link that will be sent to you and listening and watching via your computer. You attend class from your home and don't need to leave the house.

  • 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. Then you will attend the session. Afterwards, 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.

  • What currency is the course in?

    The course investment is $349 Canadian dollars. If you are in the U.S. you can pay using your U.S. credit card and your card will convert for you. The cost will be approximately $274 U.S. This works out to $30 per class U.S. or $39 per class CAD.

  • Why should I take this course?

    The Lymphedema Nutrition School is designed with several key goals in mind. 1. Allow you to learn which foods affect your lymphedema, so that you can implement nutrition strategies (along with your compression, MLD, exercise and skin care) to reduce your lymphedema as much as possible. 2. To track your lymphedema, food and other factors to help you get to know your lymphedema - what makes it swell and what doesn't so that you can achieve the best possible outcome with your lymphedema. 3. Many people with lymphedema have a goal to reduce their sugar intake and reduce their cravings. This class is designed to help you achieve that. 4. Help with weight loss is a 4th goal. If this is applicable to you, then you can expect guidance, support and accountability for your weight loss goals.

  • 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.

  • Is there a way to communicate with you or the other students in my class?

    Yes. There will be 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 or call me at 416-561-1196 I want to make sure you are happy with the Lymphedema Nutrition School, so please reach out with any questions or concerns.
