An Invisible Disorder….unlike Anorexia, Bulimia and Binge Eating Disorder can hide behind a façade of average body weight, happiness and competence.
According to a report by CTV last February, Canadian hospitals and clinics specializing in eating disorders say there is a rise in the numbers of adults, teens and children, some as young as five, seeking help for eating disorders. Most of them are women.
I believe this topic also extends to those of us who may not fit into the Bulimic or Binge Eating category but also suffer from a life-long struggle with food, weight and dieting.
These disorders may be baffling to some and a very real obsession for others. Acting in an insidious way, destroying lives. Yet perhaps there is a gift of self-empowerment, love and life fulfillment by heading into and through these disorders?
What I’ve come to learn is that these types of eating disorders are usually not about the food but symptoms of much deeper issues. Issues that I’d like to invite Dr. Paul Garfinkel, a leading Toronto Psychiatrist who specializes in Eating Disorders to discuss on WbD Radio this Wednesday at 3:30pm (EST)
I look forward to diving into Dr. Garfinkel’s wealth of knowledge and more importantly, his experience with these disorders in an effort to raise awareness and promote healthy recovery.
