Drum roll please!
The conclusion of my review of Simple Steps, the UK website reaching out to those suffering with eating disorders.
Simply it is this:
A website, regardless of the validity of its information is insufficient to address the crux of an eating disorder. An eating disorder is never simply an eating disorder. The circumstances and issues that lead to its development are as individual as the people it slays.
This website offers tons of valuable information. Accurate descriptions of not only the symptoms but also how the sufferer feels, are hard to come by. I found that the descriptions of an eating disorder from the “inside-out” were spot on.
I am skeptical of a website that postures its own product line as the secret to recovery. An completely altruistic approach could suggest multivitamins, minerals and protein powders available inexpensively at Wal-Mart, GNC or other retailer. My review of the ingredients in their products suggests that they are not much different than any one of the wide variety of available supplements.
Lastly, I do understand the power of positive thinking. I am astounded by the effectiveness of memorizing the Bible. Simply inputing the ultimate truth, God’s Word, changes my emotions, my behaviors and my future. But, I would never release my consciousness into the hands of another fallen human, as in hypnosis.
