Mind & Body Peace MEET BRENA JEAN

I’m a Lipedema Advocate, content creator, and the voice behind “A Mind At Peace” Youtube meditation channel.  I began telling my story after seeking out a Lipedema diagnosis. The experience inspired my mission to help folks unravel narratives of shame and build self-care skills to support inner-liberation and self-acceptance work.

This is My Story.

I was 38 years old when I learned that I have Lipedema, a little-known fat disorder that affects 11% of folks assigned ‘female’ at birth. There isn’t a cure for Lipedema but I’m pursuing medically necessary Lipedema Liposuction. I’m facing an uphill battle against Medical Insurance providers and if I win, nearly full-body reconstruction.

    Hi, I'm Brena Jean.

    I was 38 years old when I learned that I have Lipedema, a rarely-diagnosed fat disorder. The diagnosis came with an awareness that I wasn’t alone and that I’d been right about my body all along. There isn’t a cure for Lipedema but now that I know I have it, I can take better care of myself. I’m pursuing medically-necessary Lipedema Liposuction, a common way to reduce the pain associated with Lipedema. I’m facing an uphill battle against Medical Insurance providers and if I win, nearly full-body reconstruction. I’ll share everything I get on this journey with you. 

      What Stage

      Are You In?

      DISCOVERY

      I discovered Lipedema by accident. I found a video featuring Dr. Amron on a medical talk show helping a woman with large legs. Later in my journey, Dr. Amron diagnosed me with Lipedema. But not before I spent months researching and wondering… do I have it?

      LIPEDEMA CARE

      Inflammation, swelling, pain management, bruising, and mobility are all on the table. Myself and “The Lipedema Care Crew” will buy it, try it, and tell you all about our experiences as we explore ways to care for ourselves.

      ACCEPTANCE

      Now that I know the culprit of my physical pains, I’m ready to unravel the narratives that contribute to my emotional suffering. We all suffer under the lousy values of social hierarchy, identity biases, and marginalization. I’ve decided to divest from harmful norms and invest in self-acceptance and harm reduction. Find the encouragement you need to live out loud in your Lipedema body.
