If you are one of the 1.6 million people in the UK currently suffering with an eating disorder, where can you get the help you need? Before we look at treatment, it is important to be clear about the nature of eating disorders. An eating disorder has two elements.
First, it is a psychological condition. Second, it manifests in dysfunctional eating behaviours. For treatment to be effective both elements need to be addressed. Treating the eating problem alone will only alleviate the symptoms while concentrating only on the psychological issues will not change the eating behaviour.

As people start to plan their holidays for 2013, national charity Deafness Research UK is reminding us to spare a thought for in-flight ear health before they take to the skies. An independent survey commissioned by the charity shows over 70% experience some health problems when flying, with ear pain the most common and upsetting complaint.
This is a truly exceptional hand. In Tibetan palmistry this is the hand of the Tortoise. The tortoise moves slowly, and unfailingly negotiates many obstacles on his journey, and eventually reaches his destination no matter what obstacles he encounters. He is a shy peaceful creature whose main focus is internal, and his hard shell belies a soft interior.
We now know that weight loss is not a "one size fits all" fad, it needs to be tailored to the individual's needs: these may include metabolism, what medications people are taking, financial and social conditions.
