Anorexia:
a Quick Guide

Eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia are often life threatening. The struggle with food and body image is just the beginning. Gone untreated, these self-hurt practices cause irremediable physical ailments and the possibility of untimely death.

While many tend to believe that eating disorder incidences within the Jewish community are thinning out, the terrible truth is that thousands face these challenges on a daily basis. Numerous new cases present themselves, particularly among young teens and adolescents.

Magen Avrohom feeds hope to the afflicted and their families by providing education, guidance and support. We work hand-in-hand with leading doctors and therapists to nurture and nourish patients back to a healthy lifestyle. We teach them positive choice, the power of self-confidence, as well as the road to complete healing and freedom from these weighty issues.
