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 chronical 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.
Today also, Nina is happy to get sustainable support from HYPOXI-Training. 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 suffers 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 HYPOXI has asked Nina to take part in further trials.
“Over the last few months the Lipoedema has become a lot worse and I’ve been suffering with a lot larger and more painful legs that have been weighing me down and affecting me physically and emotionally. So, I’m really hoping HYPOXI will help to manage the pain and get the condition under control” says Nina.
A two month intensive HYPOXI-Training was arranged at VILA VITA Parc’s HYPOXI-Studio set in the beautiful grounds of the luxury 5-star resort & spa in the Algarve, Portugal.
The Certified HYPOXI-Coach was with Nina every step of the way from applying the HYPOXI-Method, monitoring the results, giving expert advice on nutrition and generally supporting Nina to make sure she was comfortable throughout the process.
During this period, Nina had made many truthful Vloggs highlighting the ups and downs of a Lipoedema suffer, but has always been very positive about her HYPOXI treatments and how she has been cared for by the Certified HYPOXI-Coach.
“I attended the beautiful Vila Vita Parc 3 times a week for my HYPOXI course. Margarida was my HYPOXI-Coach, she was absolutely amazing! The support and advice that I received from her was outstanding. Yes, HYPOXI is a real commitment but I absolutely loved my sessions and really looked forward to them. 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.
