As parents we worry. We are concerned about our child's physical wellbeing, emotional and mental health. And when you see your child have an obsession with food or their overall appearance; it begs the question...Is this normal or is this an eating disorder?

Many of your questions about eating disorders, what to look for, how to communicate with your child and modeling healthy behavior towards food will be answered.

Note : Treatment of a diagnosed Eating Disorder needs to be handled by a professional who specializes in eating disorders. As a Dietitian and Health Coach, eating disorders is not my specialty but I'm more than happy to guide you to someone who is. That being said, I love to empower moms with a healthy outlook towards food so that they can have a positive impact at home.

If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
