HYPOXI helps Lipoedema; Case Study
For the last few years HYPOXI has worked closely with women who suffer from Lipoedema (especially in Germany). More and more doctors have been sending their patients to an Authorised HYPOXI-Studio for our holistic approach to treating the condition, after they become aware of the benefits HYPOXI is having on this chronic disease.
Nina Blakemore, well known Plus size model and stylist, has successfully worked as a 'curve' model for around 20 years in photographic, catwalk and television was quite surprised when she was diagnosed with Lipoedema back in 2014.
Lipoedema is a chronic and progressive disorder of the adipose tissue that mostly affects the lower half of the body. It’s often called painful fat syndrome, and it mainly affects women. It is marked by the abnormal buildup of fat cells. Lipoedema can occur at any age but the disease generally manifests itself during puberty, pregnancy or other times of hormonal change. It is believed that up to 11% of the female population have some form of Lipoedema and some even know nothing about it.
Lipoedema sufferers manage the condition with a certain type of diet and exercise along with compression and lymph drainage techniques and some go to the drastic measures and opt for liposuction.
During 2016, studies were done using the HYPOXI-Method and have had some amazing results. Following on from these positive findings Nina asked HYPOXI to take part in further trials.
A two month intensive HYPOX program was set for Nina, run by a Certified HYPOXI-Coach. Nina was monitored every step of the way, applying the HYPOXI-Method, monitoring the results, provided expert advice on nutrition and generally supporting Nina to make sure she was comfortable throughout the process.
During this period, Nina made many truthful Vloggs highlighting the ups and downs of a Lipoedema suffer, but was always been very positive about her HYPOXI treatments and how she had been cared for by the Certified HYPOXI-Coach.
“The relief that I felt within the first couple of weeks was unbelievable. My legs felt much lighter and more sculpted and incredibly, the ‘heavy’ feeling started to subside. My final measurements showed a 32 cm loss in circumference. HYPOXI may not be a complete cure for Lipoedema but with ongoing maintenance sessions, it definitely eases the pain caused by the condition and also helps you feel much more confident” says Nina.
Nina is still a great ambassador for the HYPOXI-Method and Lipoedema.
If you or someone you know is living with Lipoedema or Lymphedema, we would LOVE to work with you/them to create for case studies like this here in Australia.
