International Eating Disorders Awareness Week
February 7, 2017
Hosted by Kathy Welter-Nichols
This week is International Eating Disorders Awareness Week, and programs and organizations are reaching out into the communities to help increase awareness of Eating Disorders. EDAC, NEDIC are just two of many. Gurze Books.com offers all kinds of helpful books and tools - all of these groups encourage healthy resources to help you. Tosca Reno has chat groups and newsletters to help you on her EatClean web site. Tips and tools are available on my web pages at Ways of the Wise Woman.com; and on FaceBook: Kathy Welter; You don't heal this all at once, but in small significant steps - eventually you get there. This weeks show we talk about the family and how family values can often set the kids up for power and control dramas. We'll talk about how to avoid these, and set up food as fuel - and nothing else. This week we touch on the benefits of meditation, guided visualizations, and hypnosis. And of course, contact me, I'm here. 604-421-1722 email@example.com

These and many more behavior patterns are linked to eating disorders, along with beliefs and values that are often sacrificed in the secretive drive for thinness.
The ability to build new resources that support optimal self-care and self-love is a pre-requisite for lasting recovery, built on gratitude and forgiveness. Join us.
