EP 20: Biochemical Imbalances that Cause Eating Disorders with Dr. Judith Bowman

For over 25 years I carried around an immense amount of guilt and shame because of my disordered relationship with food and my body. No matter how hard I tried, I felt like I wasn't strong enough or smart enough to figure out why I had allowed this to take over my life. In my mind, I was a failure and total fraud for pretending everything was fine when in truth, I was in so much pain. When I understood the "why" I was finally able to give myself a much-needed break, free myself of the guilt and shame, and finally begin the healing process. In honor of Eating Disorder Awareness, I brought back my personal physician, Dr. Judith Bowman, to talk about the genetic, environmental, and biochemical causes of eating disorders. Dr. Bowman has treated over 30,000 patients using all natural non-pharmaceutical targeted nutrient therapy. She trains physicians in advanced nutrient therapy techniques and facilitates outreach clinics all over the United States and abroad. If you're currently struggling with disordered eating (or any addiction), please know you are not alone. You are not at fault and healing is always possible. Eating disorders can be safely healed with dietary and nutrient therapy, therapies that literally saved my life.
