Recovering from eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia nervosa is a long and difficult process, which Recovery from Eating Disorders charts through the testimony of former patients who have battled these conditions - and won. Full of insight and personal revelation, these case histories exemplify above all else that full recovery is possible. Aimed at readers on both sides of the clinical process, whether patients or health professionals, the guide provides a detailed survey of successful approaches to tackling eating disorders, showing how these contribute to finely calibrated strategies for physical, psychological and social recovery. It includes material covering every stage of the eating disorder cycle, from warning signs to the conditions that sustain the improvements in health and quality of life that are in each case so hard-won.
