Hope, Help and Healing for Eating Disorders

By Dr. Gregory L. Jantz with Ann McMurray @

When I first wrote Hope, Help and Healing for Eating Disorders, I did so out of a deep desire to help those suffering from anorexia, bulimia and compulsive overeating. These were people with faces I saw every day at my practice. Writing the book allowed me to support people all over the United States and around the world in their recovery.

This latest revision to that first edition still speaks strongly to those suffering from recognized eating disorders but it also includes those with what I call disordered eating. It’s no longer a question of whether someone has an eating disorder diagnosis but whether or not food has found its proper place as nutrition in your life. Food is meant to be your ally, meant to strength and sustain you; it was never meant to be your enemy, your lover, your friend, or whatever you substitute it for.

Though the title has changed slightly, it still begins with the word, Hope. This remains to be what so many people want and need in order to change, to grow, to overcome and recover.
