Lympha Press is committed to telling the stories of patients with lipedema. We believe by sharing what these brave and resilient patients have learned as well as what leading medical professionals have discovered, many will be inspired to manage their condition and find hope in the process.
Many women are using the Lympha Press Optimal Plus and seeing great results like reduced pain, increased mobility, and in some cases, substantial reduction and even elimination of fat pads.
Best of all it’s so easy to use, as demonstrated by Lipedema Influencer @PaleGingerPear on Instagram. She is just one of the inspiring voices on our monthly Lipedema Patient Roundtables, which take place on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 8 PM. Click below to register!
LysaMarie knew something was different about her lower body, but remained undiagnosed for years. Gastric bypass, endless exercise - nothing helped. It was only when she started connecting on Instagram that she saw other bodies like her own, which eventually led to the medical treatment that helped her reclaim her life.
It's our special Fitness episode with Coach Bob Cornute (the encouraging voice behind @LipedemaFitness). Your questions about strength training, resolutions, stretching, and much more are answered, along with our regular discussions about lipedema-related matters.
April Sluder's Lovely Lipedema Ladies Facebook group is inspiring! From "Selfie Sundays" asking members to show their beautiful faces, or quotes like "It's not your job to like me. It's mine..." from Byron Katie, her mission is clear: "I help people see their own worth and live life unapologetically."
A Masters' level social worker and Certified Life Coach, April also has lipedema. She always noticed something was different about her legs, but after the birth of her second daughter, her condition became more pronounced. When a contestant on The Biggest Loser was diagnosed with lipedema, April had a realization: "That's me!" This led to a formal diagnosis from Dr. Steven Dean from Ohio State University's Wexner Medical Center. She still says "my legs fight me" but she continues to press through while encouraging others.
Marie McGowan brings a wealth of medical expertise to this interview. She's a Certified Lymphedema Therapist, a Senior Therapist at Prisma Health in South Carolina, as well as a Physical Therapist. Her unique empathy and passion to help lymphedema patients are, in part, because of her own lipedema diagnosis.
