Are you looking for effective strategies to treat lipedema and lymphedema?
Join us for three days full of learning and discover cutting-edge holistic strategies for lipedema, lymphedema, and other fat/lymphatic disorders.
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.
Join us for a much awaited three-day Symposium in October!

We'll uncover the secrets of the foods and diet that are best to reduce inflammation, as well as various exercise and treatment strategies to help you improve your overall health.
Heal your wounds caused by heartbreaks and trauma.
We're going to dig deep so you can rediscover yourself, your passion, and your life's purpose beyond your chronic condition.

Become mentally strong and gain the confidence you've always wanted.
We'll explore ways to improve your cognitive function and get a new perspective on where your inner abilities come from despite the challenges that lipedema/lymphedema brings.
Reconnect with your loved ones.
We have a supportive community of women with lipedema and lymphedema that will provide you with positive reinforcement and help you explore opportunities on how to live your life more fully engaged and present for yourself and others.

What Our Attendees Say
"Thank you so much for all of the wonderful information. I had never heard of lipedema until a couple of months ago when I came upon your site via Google. It's nice to finally have a name for what I have let give me a negative body image for most of my life.
Being referred to as fat and overweight or obese, while also having a medical professional refer to me as a "boney-landmark" when setting up an EKG, had always been confusing. How could I possibly be obese and boney at the same time? Now I know. Thank you!"
~ Kristin A.
"Thank you for everyone’s hard work putting together this life-changing symposium. A life-changing weekend."
~ Randy W.

Thank you for recording the event because now we can sit and take all the tips and start implementing them in our lifestyles so that we can feel better. It felt so good to be with people who are experiencing the same thing and one can see that we are really a big community.
Thank you again for putting such a powerful symposium together. We really need this."
