Eating Disorder Treatment in Venezuela and Mexico: Good News!

Two eating disorder specialist referrals in Venezuela and one eating disorder in-patient treatment center referral in Mexico came through within hours of my placing a request via my professional organization, the Academy for Eating Disorders. https://www.aedweb.org Just wanted to follow up on my last post and share the good news with you!

Symptoms and Effective Treatment Don’t Have a Straight Line Connection

A Human Journey Years ago, when my daughter was a girl, she and I sat atop a heavy black rock encrusted knoll in Dartmoor, in Cornwall England on a lovely spring afternoon.

The Territory
The vista before us was Cornwall in its glory. Before us unfolded the moors, forest and hills, meadows, streams and a river, a few tiny villages, pools of glittering water that might have been small lakes.

The Goal
We picked a point in the distance, she what appealed to her and I what appealed to me. Taking turns we discussed how we might reach our goals.

Lost in Eating Disorder Pain and Suffering: Sometimes I Forget

Dear Readers,

Sometimes I am so happy and deeply involved in the recovery work I share with my clients in my private practice that I momentarily forget the depth and vastness of the pain and suffering lived daily by people entrenched in their eating disorders.

Joy in Recovery Work
The eating disorder recovery path, even though challenging to every aspect of a person’s way of being in the world, is a joyous experience for me. This must be why I do this work. Being with someone who is climbing out of the prison of an eating disorder and blinking from the light of the new world she enters is an incredible joy.

Mindless Munching, Eating Disorder Recovery, Economic Consequences, Getting Better Anyway

Mindless Munching is the topic of a Wall Street Journal May 13, 2008 article by Melinda Beck.

Mindful Eating
Her article, "Put a End to Mindless Munching," is a credible piece on mindful eating. I’m glad to see this perspective on eating move into greater public awareness via this well respected news publication. My gladness has several aspects. One, information about paying attention to the specific details of your eating experience may help you develop a valuable exercise that can bring you to a normal and healthy way of being present for your genuine experience and genuine body need for nourishment. When you practice mindful eating you can discover what food can offer you. The other deep yearnings you have that are not satisfied by food are then exposed so you can learn to address those needs in a more life enhancing way.
