This podcast is the second part from my conversation with inspiring Eating Disorder Advocate JD Ouellette on resources available and lessons leant from parenting a child through an eating disorder.

JD’s daughter became ill with Anorexia at age 17, and Family Based Therapy was a crucial part of her recovery. In this episode, we delve more into the dangers and complications that speciality diets pose to the recovering sufferer, the role of the entire family and the importance in getting Dads involved in treatment, and so much more … including chickens!
