Lipedema and Nordic Walking with Elizabeth Cook

In episode 15, I talk to Elizabeth Cook about Lipedema.  I taught Liz how to Nordic Walk and since we first met, she has educated me about lipodema, as she herself has this condition.    Lipedema is a condition that does not get much publicity and therefore, there is very little awareness about it.  Our conversation starts with Liz explaining exactly what lipedema is, and how it affects sufferers and impacts their lives.  Later on, we discuss how Nordic walking has helped Liz improve her health and how it could help many more women.If you have enjoyed this podcast, I would be very grateful if you could show your support by buying me a coffee!  This enables me to continue producing these podcasts, as it will go towards covering the server and podcast platform licenses.   Not only is Nordic Walking a whole body workout, but it is also one of the safest and most sociable way to exercise.  Classes always finish up in a cafe enjoying a coffee together.
