    41. Food, Feelings & Freedom: Unpacking Binge Eating Disorder with Renfrew Alum, Susie Denby

    41. Food, Feelings & Freedom: Unpacking Binge Eating Disorder with Renfrew Alum, Susie Denby

    Ashley and Sam connect with Renfrew Alum, Susie Denby, who shares her journey of being diagnosed with Binge Eating Disorder (BED). Susie paints an incredible picture of what her diagnosis, treatment and life in recovery looks like with the diagnosis of BED. Despite what diet culture may want us to believe, BED is not caused by a lack of will power and it's not a choice. BED is a complex mental health disorder that deserves treatment and support. Susie’s story is sure to inspire and encourage anyone who may be experiencing similar symptoms, thoughts, and emotional experiences.

Spoke to me!

Episode 33 Mid Life Eating Disorder with Betsy Brenner rocked my world! It was like she was taking about me. As a woman who struggles with ED in mid life, I found courage and hope in her story!

Dani Peach ,

Great Exercise episode!

Thank you for this great episode about exercise! I already shared it with a few other professionals & potential Renfrew’s patients (& families), who struggle with over-exercise. Kristen is a wonderful resource & Spring Lane is lucky to have her. Raising awareness about this is so important. I wish more coaches & doctors would listen to this. Keep up the good work ladies!

Great resource as provider working with patients

Sam and Ashley are knowledgeable, informative and have enabled my work with ED population attain a higher quality of care.
These podcasts have been so helpful to understand the different ED, the treatment process and recovery.
I have listened to them all, gone back to review some and look forward to upcoming podcasts.
Keep up the great work because you both are making a difference.
