Blog Tour: Hope, Help and Healing for Eating Disorders (Review)

Heal your relationship with food.

Eating disorders and disordered eating ravage and consume too many lives.  In this powerful book for individuals suffering from eating disorders—as well as those wanting to help—Dr. Gregory Jantz comes alongside his readers with a well-tested and successful approach that addresses the emotional, relational, physical, and spiritual dimensions of healing from an eating disorder.

Topics include:
  • Five often-overlooked nutritional keys to recovery
  • How to let go of anger, fear, and guilt
   • Tools for creating a binge-free life
   • How not to be a victim of others
   • The role of emotional and verbal abuse in eating disorders
   • Seven keys to creating healthy relationships

This completely updated and revised edition contains new material on nutritional leading-edge interventions, spiritual abuse, and healing strategies for compulsive behaviors.

If food has not found its proper place as nutrition in your life, discover the answers in Hope, Help and Healing for Eating Disorders. Because you can do more than just survive--you can really live.

Contains thought provoking questions and activities to guide readers through progressive healing steps.

What I Thought
I picked up this book, because well, I work with teenage girls who often deal with food issues.

The book is easy to read and contains several personal stories designed to help illustrate the message that there is hope, help and healing for people dealing with disordered eating (anorexia, bulimia and more.)

Less of a self-help book, it instead is a book which is more of an overview and resource for someone wanting to get out of the pit of food addiction.

Help and hope. I feel very comfortable passing this book along to a student, or parent for that matter, impacted by food issues.
