Adults with Eating Disorders: Dr. Lauren Muhlheim



I had the pleasure of talking to the fabulous Dr. Lauren Muhlheim over Skype today about adults with eating disorders.

Below are some of the issues that Dr. Muhlheim and I discussed. This is just the bare bones of the conversation and I recommend that you listen to the whole podcast as Dr. Muhlheim gives some incredibly valuable insight and decorates these points fantastically.

She is my go-to professional and a highly valued member of the eating disorder advocacy community.

In short: Dr. Muhlheim gets eating disorders. Check out her website for more information and resources and follow her on twitter @drmuhlheim 



In this podcast you will find information on:

Outlining the biggest obstacles for adult sufferers when it comes to accessing treatment options.

Adult and post-menopausal onset of eating disorders.

Dynamics of family and relationships for adults with eating disorders and financial implications. 

The role and potential of Family-Based Therapy.

Post inpatient treatment plans and relapse avoidance plans

Stay Tuned for The Eating Disorder Recovery Podcast!


Hey there,

One thing that I really did not anticipate when I started this blog was how I would feel when readers got in touch with me. Honestly when I started I didn’t think I would have any readers, so interacting with readers couldn’t have been further from my mind.

A couple years on, I interact with readers more than I write blog posts — a lot more — and it is fabulous.

I started podcasting for work, and now that I have all the setup I want to podcast here too. I hope that you will subscribe and let me know what you think. As I say in this intro, I cannot promise how often I will publish a podcast, but I hope to do one a week. iTunes takes a couple of days to update, but before Friday you should be able to find me in the Podcast app on your phone.

This weekend I plan to record some thoughts on adult sufferers as I have been writing about that a bit recently and I have also been emailing with a number of adult sufferers. As I was an adult onset of Anorexia myself, it is a subject very close to my heart.

Thanks to all of you who have supported, inspired, and motivated me.

Stay tuned!
