An Eastern Medicine View of Lipedema with Claudia Welch, DO

Dr. Claudia Welch explores lipedema from both a Chinese and an Ayurvedic medicine perspective. She addresses the relationship of stress to the lymphatic system and the role stress plays in digestive and reproductive problems, as well as in stagnation in the extremities, which creates conditions like lipedema. Dr. Welch also discusses the Ayurvedic concept of the body’s seven layers of tissues, and shares her conviction that there is always the chance to transform one’s health and well-being. Dr. Claudia Welch is a Doctor of Oriental Medicine, acupuncturist, massage therapist, and Ayurvedic educator. She is the author of the book Balance Your Hormones, Balance Your Life: Achieving Optimal Health and Wellness Through Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine, and Western Science.
