On January 23, 2015 I appeared as a guest on The Doctors, filmed in front of a live studio audience in Los Angeles. The program aired on July 16, 2015
“Chasing Hunger” was published just a week later January 30,
With only a few minutes of air time I didn’t really have the opportunity to touch on the many of the critical subjects connected with eating disorders. However one thing I’ll mention here is that most of my clients have never disclosed their eating disorder to anyone, and that this very secretive disorder goes undetected by families and friends a lot of the time.
Medical doctors often don’t have time with patients to go deeper into these areas and may prescribe for IBS related issues that could be related to an Eating Disorder. As the client often won’t disclose the eating disorder, it can go undetected for years.
A “Self Help” book that could help someone recover seems very far-fetched and from a doctors perspective, rightly so. They see critically ill and life threatening results of eating disorders in ER’s. When a patient is this ill they need medical assistance and hospitalization of course.
Chasing Hunger is helpful when they go home: How do they begin the daunting task of figuring out how much is too much? When should I eat? Now or later? What if I have fears or anxiety around family dinners?
These kinds of issues create real problems that might result in relapses. Chasing Hunger offers has 9 simple steps to help someone remain solidly on task with recovery 90 days down the road.
The clients The Doctors mentioned on the program, these are not my clients. Many clients I see in my clinical practice for various personal issues, have disclosed they had bulimia and got over it themselves. Without the help of anyone, not even a self-help book.
I hope the book, MP3’s and Card Set help you, or someone you love, find the help they need to put bulimia behind them for the last time.
