Here we focus on womens health, because isn't it wonderful to be a woman? You may not always feel the same way, but I find myself marveling at the wonders of our amazing bodies:
-daily living (heart beating, lungs breathing, etc)
-strength to care for our families
-dancing and playing
-beautiful (even when we don't feel like we are)
Throughout the life cycle, a woman's body and mind has varying needs. As a guide for this journey, this section is dedicated to taking care of you.
So much of the time you fight your body. Now you will start to honor your body and be grateful for what it does for you. You will start to care for yourself with the level of dedication you have devoted to the care of everyone else in your life. This may feel uncomfortable at first. Our culture has taught us to be servants, and to never ask to have our needs met. But it is time to finally recognize yourself for the Goddess you truly are.
Contact us with any questions about eating and mental health issues. You or someone you know may be in need of outpatient eating disorder treatment.
