Self-Help Programs Designed to Overcome Eating Disorders Northampton MA

I am also a earlier suffer of anorexia and bulimia myself (this was the main reason I determined to study all I could about these circumstances and aid myself and other people to get better from it) and as a doctor I have worked with many women struggling with eating disorders.
