The Food Pollution/Addiction Model for Treating Eating Disorders and Obesity: A Systems Approach
Obesity is epidemic and eating disorders are proliferating, reaching younger children, older women and more men. Likewise, the complications for both populations are becoming more severe. There is a connection. The food supply in the U.S. is polluted. Treatment that does not take into consideration the impact that polluted food has on the onset and progression of disordered eating will fail. This workshop outlines the empirical data and provides examples of how effective an addiction model can be in treating disorders that are generally refractory to treatment.
