Recovery

Recovery is usually associated with getting better, healing or getting over an event. Recovering from an eating disorder may be a slow process: so be patient. Family and other support networks are very important at this time. It is also essential that people supporting get educated as to what a condition is. Language is a very powerful tool in connecting. We need to learn the language of recovery: that is to be more positive. Recovery requires many interventions such as nutritional therapy, care of a medical doctor, psychotherapy and life coaching, group work and support of loved ones. Recovery is not just about healing our relationship with food and our body. We need to learn to live. This involves managing anxiety, developing coping skills, connecting with nature, developing our potentials and learning how to love.
