NEDA -- which is promoting National Eating Disorders Awareness Week 2008 -- offers programs, products and services to prevent, treat and find a cure for eating disorders.
This week, NEDA as its CEO will tell us, is trying to urge people to "Be comfortable in your genes."
To support NEDA, visit here. To get help now, call NEDA's referral helpline at 1-800-931-2237.
Meanwhile, for this special one-hour Stop SUGAR SHOCK! Radio Show panel, I also will interview Jean Kristeller, Ph.D., psychology professor and director, Center for the Study of Health, Religion, & Spirituality at Indiana State University.
Dr. Kristeller, co-founder of the Center for Mindful Eating, will talk about some of the exciting work and research that she's done to integrate meditative techniques into more comprehensive therapy or support programs to help people with binge eating disorder (BED). She'll also discuss her research into the role of spirituality to help with serious medical illnesses.
But this panel will not be complete without the courage of two bold women, Ranae Whitmore and Caitlin Scafati, who both used to suffer from eating disorder (as did I.)
I do hope you'll join us for this special show. Please listen yourself and send your loved ones, too.
