Dr. Foojan Zeine shares a very interesting perspective on Bulimia and her story of how she came to create the Awareness Integration program.
We discuss parental control, the difference between Anorexia and Bulimia, and some essentials on moving towards recovery.
We talked about triggers. Many bulimics feel they have food triggers, however, they are almost always associated with situational triggers. Dr. Foojan said transitional stages are difficult and can cause triggers. To this she was speaking about teenagers, however, I explained the same comes with menopause, which is again body and hormonal changes.
Dr. Foojan also spoke to the shame and depression that can come along with both bulimia and fingers that do not purge.
Very interesting conversation, that I truly appreciate.
