People who currently and have historically struggled with eating disorders often have many eating disorder-related symptoms that respond positively to an integrative approach to treatment. Just like many other chronic health conditions, with appropriately selected interventions, recovery from an eating disorder can be further facilitated with a holistic approach. Nutritional support, natural therapies for mental health, and integrative help for digestive issues are just a few of the topics discussed during this interview with naturopathic expert Carrie Decker, ND.
