“Dr. Lisa offers insights and patient stories about eating disorders and how to recover. The book addresses changes in the addict's thinking, in the person's relationship to The Source and spirituality, and in eating healthy, natural foods and avoiding binge diets. Each chapter ends with questions to reflect upon that assist with the recovery process.”
