Ketogenic Solution for Lipedema and Lymphedema Mini-Symposium

Ketogenic Solution for Lipedema and Lymphedema Mini-Symposium – April 2021

Our SYMPOSIUM will be online April 17!

An invitation: Let’s Learn Together

The Lipedema Project and Lipedema Simplified held the first Ketogenic Solution for Lymphatic/Fat Disorders Symposium in November 2020.

The symposium shared the newest, cutting-edge research into lipedema, lymphedema, and other lymphatic/fat disorders, as well as the personal journeys of those who live with these diseases on a daily basis.

The success and increasing interest stemming from this symposium, even in the midst of the pandemic, leads us to make this an annual event.

But you don’t need to wait for our next 3-day Symposium on October 22, 23, 24, 2021.

Join us for a one-day Mini-Symposium on April 17, 2021 (11:00 am – 5:30 pm Eastern time)!

About our VIRTUAL Symposium
The idea of using diet for the treatment of lymphatic/fat disorders is rapidly gaining ground. Come explore and learn how a ketogenic diet can lead to improved management of these chronic conditions.

Our goal with the Ketogenic Solution Symposium is to develop and provide useful strategies for clinicians, therapists, medical providers, and researchers for integrating ketogenic nutrition into their practices as well as to enhance outcomes in lymphatic treatments. Additionally, there will be a patient track to learn about, begin, enhance or expand your ketogenic lifestyle.

This mini-symposium will have attendees from all parts of the globe. We will provide numerous opportunities for learning and for social connection. Going virtual online also makes it more accessible to many more than those who could normally attend in person.
