The Lonely Road to Recovery

When we asked our former clients what were the biggest challenges they faced in recovery, the answer wasn't family or relationship issues, or sticking to their meal plans, or even body image. It was loneliness and isolation. So Mirasol clinicians gathered together to discuss the relationship between social isolation and eating disorders, and what clients can do to build community and forge meaningful relationships in recovery.

The Battle in Your Belly

Most Mirasol clients experience gastrointestinal disturbances at one time or another during their recovery. Some come into treatment with a long list of food allergies and sensitivities. Others may find that eating regularly again can result in a range of uncomfortable symptoms including gas, bloating, constipation and diarrhea. It's not easy to tell if a sudden intolerance for wheat, dairy or animal products is a clinical issue, or a way to avoid eating broad categories of food. How can we work together to disentangle eating disorder cause and effect, and reduce the discomfort of weight restoration?
