About this event

"The Disease That's Called Fat"

Living Better with Lipoedema by Dr Jonie Girouard, BSE, MD, FRNZCGP

Join us for this interactive evening, exploring if you have lipoedema how to live better with Lipoedema.

Facilitated by New Zealand's leading Lipoedema expert, Dr Jonie Girouard has treated thousands of Lipoedema sufferers over the last 16 years locally and in their 5 US clinics.

Statistics indicate that 1 in 9 New Zealand women are living with the fat disorder called Lipoedema (also spelt Lipedema).

Lipoedema is a relatively common fat disorder that is often mistaken for simple obesity. One of the hallmarks of the disease is that lipoedema fat is relatively unresponsive to diet and exercise. These measures may lead to weight loss in other areas, but the size of the hips and legs remains disproportionately large.

If you think you or a loved one may have Lipoedema, come along and learn what you can do about it and what treatments are available.

Who is this workshop for?

This event is designed for women of all ages experiencing difficulty losing weight:

  • From their hips or legs
  • ​No matter how much dieting or exercise, they just can't lose inches from their hips or legs
  • ​Legs hurt and bruise easily
  • ​Those who scored 50% or more on the Lipoedema Quiz
  • ​Those interested in learning more about lipoedema for themselves, family and/or friend

What will you learn?

In this 2 hour workshop, Dr. Jonie will cover:

  1. Lipoedema Overview
  2. Best Food & Nutrition for Lipoedema
  3. Common Foods that Worsen Lipoedema
  4. Best Exercises for Lipoedema
  5. Excerises to Avoid with Lipoedema
  6. Relieving Lipoedema Pain
  7. How to Slow Progression
  8. Compressin Wear - How it works and when to use it
  9. Non-invasive Medical Treatments (supplements & medications)
