; The Lippy Butterfly Archives - Lympha Press
From lipedema and the COVID vaccine to using heating pads vs. ice, this month’s Lipedema Patient Roundtable was filled with great advice and personal testimonies to educate and encourage.
Dr. Karen Herbst’s insights about dealing with insurance companies as well as her own contact information for a telehealth visit was a highlight, as were the insights by Dr. Melissa Gallagher of Natural Health Resources.
Green was the theme (for St. Patty’s Day) and Pattie Cornute @lipedemafitness brought bright green, weighted drumsticks, and a soft, weighted medicine ball to illustrate fun ways to exercise. Dating and body positivity were hot topics that @PaleGingerPear, @TheLippyButterfly, and @Lipedema.Living discussed.
Several attendees recently received their new Lympha Press Optimal Plus pneumatic compression devices, which helps them manage their lipedema and reduce pain while increasing mobility.
The monthly Roundtables are sponsored by Lympha Press, global leaders in pneumatic compression for nearly 40 years, and hosted by Brenda Viola. For more information, e-mail [email protected].

October 2020 Lipedema Patient Roundtable

So many amazing topics of conversation, including the unique lack of lymph function in the calves of those with lipedema - even difficulty finding calf muscles! Dr. Karen Herbst and Linda Anne Kahn offered clinical expertise on topics from cryotherapy to aromatherapy, the impact of alcohol on the lymphatics, massage guns and healthy doses of inspiration and encouragement. All delivered in costume! (After all, it's Halloween week...) Special thanks to Pattie Cornute (@LipedemaFitness), Cara Cruz (@PaleGingerPear), Cheryl Scoledge (@LipedemaDiva), and Angelique Charles (@TheLippyButterfly) for sharing their insights as we forge a path of hope and help for lipedema. The Lipedema Channel videos and patient roundtables are brought to you by Lympha Press, makers of the only pneumatic compression device cleared by the FDA for the treatment of lipedema - the Optimal Plus.
