Overcoming Anorexia

Eating disorders are not just physical conditions; they are related to one’s emotional health as well. Insecurities, negative self-perceptions and depression are just some of the emotional issues that can be the root cause of an eating disorder. The following article is one woman’s story of recovery from an eating disorder:

“EVERY WOMAN SHOULD BE THIN. At least that’s what American society dictates. Pictures of emaciated models and celebrities flood the media, aimed at young women who feel defective if they’re not so thin their bones protrude. And it’s working. Seventy-five percent of American women say they live in a chronic state of dissatisfaction with their body. And 5-10 million young women struggle with eating disorders and borderline conditions.”
