  • The Bulimia Help Method

We don't ask you to analyze your painful past experiences or to examine any personality "flaws" that may have led to your bulimia, as there is no scientific evidence supporting the idea that resolving underlying psychological problems leads to recovery (Walsh & Cameron, 2005). Instead, we give you clear, practical steps to remove your primal hunger, stop bingeing and purging, relearn normal eating, and overcome bulimia for life. You can recover. There is a way.

'The Binge Code' by the same author is much better, perhaps because it is more recent. I found this to be quite basic, superficial and somewhat outdated in its information. For people struggling with bulimia and really wanting to recover, I also highly recommend 'Brain Over Binge' by Kathryn Hansen. This is an incredibly helpful book that is also available on Audible.

Do you use substances or engage in compulsive activities to regulate your mood? Do you reach for something sweet, a couple of drinks, or a pack of cigarettes after a difficult day because you can't unwind without them? Do you race to the stores to spend away the day's frustrations or run around in circles taking more time to get less done? If these self-defeating habits sound familiar, Emotional Sobriety will shed light on why and how these coping mechanisms threaten your health and impact resilience

To understand the roots of personality is to understand motivations and influences that shape behavior, which in turn reflect how you deal with the opportunities and challenges of everyday life. That's the focus of these exciting 24 lectures, in which you examine the differences in people's personalities, where these differences come from, and how they shape our lives. Drawing on information gleaned from psychology, neuroscience, and genetics, Professor Leary opens the door to understanding how personality works and why.

Brain over Binge provides both a gripping personal account and an informative scientific perspective on bulimia and binge eating disorder. The author, Kathryn Hansen, candidly shares her experience as a bulimic and her alternative approach to recovery. Brain over Binge is different from other eating disorder books which typically present binge eating and purging as symptoms of complex emotional and psychological problems.

This book is unlike any other I have read on eating disorders and by far the best. It is very empowering in the way it separates the habit as something that can be dealt with independently of everything else.

The audio editing is not the best.

This is a book I will listen to again. Very interesting and accessible. Beautifully written I the way stories of experiences with clients were used to illustrate concepts. It gave me a deeper understanding of how powerful CBT can be and has left me wanting to learn more.

In When the Body Says No, physician and writer Gabor Maté explores the mind-body link and the connection between stress and disease. Can a person literally die of loneliness? Is there a relationship between the ability to express emotions and Alzheimer’s disease? Is there such a thing as a “cancer personality?” Drawing on scientific research and years of experience as a practicing physician, Maté provides answers to these and other important questions.

A must read!

I can't recommend the work of Mate enough. His insight on the effects of childhood trauma in adult life and health is exceptional.
