Recommendations for downloads for someone with an eating disorder?

Anonymous's picture

My son has an usual eating disorder called ARFID/SED. It stands for Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder or Selective Eating Disorder.

He will not eat most foods, only cracker-type foods and candy. I have heard that hypnosis can help with the disorder.

The goal is to get him to be willing to try new foods and hopefully like them without severe anxiety. This isn't like anorexia, because there is no body-image component. He is severly phobic of food.

Any suggestions?

Value of water

  • Water helps your digestion & also helps you absorb essential vitamins and minerals.
  • Water is essential to detoxify you kidneys & liver. It helps carry away waste from the body.
  • Water increases your physical & mental performance.
  • Water keeps your skin smooth & glowing-water is a great natural beautifier.
  • Drinking plenty of water is great for your heart
  • Water helps you stay a healthy weight
You may be surprised how much drinking enough water may help with other food related problems. He may have a fear of certain foods because he is not digesting them well & dehydration might be the problem. I have to remember to drink more water!
