In this episode, I’m talking about eating disorders, what they are, the different kinds, why they develop, what are at their core and how you can support your child.

My guest is Dr. Elizabeth Easton who is an expert in this area.  She wants you to know that there is hope for those who are suffering, those that love them, and treatment is possible.  Dr. Easton talks about how our kids are navigating a stressful world and temporarily, eating disorders can allow a person to feel soothed, in control, avoid something bad from happening and feel less overwhelmed.

The fact is that eating disorders are the second highest cause of death among youth, with opioids being at the top.  If you are worried about your child, Dr. Easton explains how to talk to them so they feel safe talking to you.

If you or someone you know is struggling with an eating disorder, please share this episode, it could save a life.
