I'm inspired to apply the knowledge!

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!

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.

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

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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.
