Podcast Episode: Dr. Muhlheim on Adults with Eating Disorders


Hooray! I’ve added a podcast to my blog. It’s called the Eating Disorder Recovery Podcast and is available for free download in iTunes and Google Play. You can also listen to it straight from this site by going to the episode here. 

For this first episode I had the pleasure of talking to the fabulous Dr. Lauren Muhlheim over Skype today about adults with eating disorders.

Below are some of the issues that Dr. Muhlheim and I discussed. This is just the bare bones of the conversation and I recommend that you listen to the whole podcast as Dr. Muhlheim gives some incredibly valuable insight and decorates these points fantastically.

Remember, if you have a topic you would like to hear discussed on the show, contact me and let me know.
