Why our Eating Disorder Dietitian Team Supports #EDAW2020 #Showusyourpurple
Eating Disorder Awareness Week is February 1-7.
Did you know that over 1 million Canadians struggle with eating disorders? This is almost the entire population of Saskatchewan.
Our virtual and Calgary Nutritionist practice and Eating Disorder Dietitian team here at Health Stand Nutrition Consulting supports many individuals and families with eating disorders. Recovery from anorexia, bulimia, ARFID (avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder), binge eating disorder and other eating disorders isn’t easy but with the right support in place, recovery is absolutely possible. Our role as Eating Disorder Dietitians is to provide compassion, education, leadership and collaboration for the clients we serve.
