This book discusses a New Approach to treating those that suffer with eating disorders. Anybody that is suffering from an eating disorder needs to have unconditional love, acceptance, and forgiveness. They also need to learn how to forgive themselves, and forgive others that may have abused or harmed them. We do not believe force will change those suffering from eating disorders. Force does not work. It can drive the eating disorder deeper and deeper.
Instead of force, we at The Center, provide an atmosphere of acceptance where change can take place. We look beyond the eating disorder and reach into the person’s heart and see them as a person who needs love and acceptance. “Hope, Help, & Healing” was written with this philosophy.
Bulimia is a Dental Disease
by Brian McKay, DDS
The first book of its kind that explores the links between dental health and bulimia nervosa/purging disorder. Every year, thousands of women and hundreds of males are diagnosed with Bulimia nervosa – an eating disorder and psychological condition caused by binge eating and purging what has been eaten. Emotional havoc ensues – guilt, depression and self-condemnation followed by physical problems – malnutrition, dehydration, organ damage and teeth erosion from the stomach acids used in purging. Dr. Brian McKay sees the obvious oral symptoms of bulimia nearly every day in his Seattle and Southern California dental practices.
McKay’s goal is not only to educate about the damage of bulimia to one’s oral health, but also to bring together the dental community in helping eating disorder clients. McKay says, “We need a change in the Standard of Care. Dentists must form alliances with eating disorder professionals. Together we can treat both the mental and oral aspects of this disease and the result should be a higher success rate. There is nothing more inviting than seeing someone smile again.”
