CHRISTIAN SOLUTIONS: EATING DISORDERS - CREATING HEALTHY EATING CHOICES AND A POSITIVE BODY IMAGE

In this program, see first-hand accounts of the struggles in dealing with Anorexia and Bulimia from young teens who have suffered from this affliction and survived. For reasons that are unclear, some teens, mainly young women, develop potentially life threatening eating disorders called bulimia nervosa and anorexia nervosa. Those with bulimia indulge in bingeing (episodes of eating large amounts of food) and purging (getting rid of the food from the body by vomiting, using laxatives or diuretics). Those with anorexia, severely limit their food intake. About half of anorexics also suffer from bulimia symptoms. Bulimia is often a deadly physical illness. Intentionally purging can causes many debilitating effects including severe tooth erosion, tears of the esophagus, life threatening potassium imbalances and more. Fewer than ten percent of all bulimics are in treatment. More than 20% die from complications relating to their eating disorders. Anorexics similarly are affected by their illness in many ways ranging from fatigue and lack of energy, amenorrhea (loss of menstruation), loss of bone mass and even cardiac arrest and death. Health professionals discuss the ways in which to help create a positive body image and how important it is to provide physical, intellectual and spiritual guidance to help teens make healthy life choices.

MAPLE AVE: MORE THAN THIS

Steroid Abuse & Eating Disorders

~ To explore the roots of negative body image and self-esteem issues that can contribute to steroid abuse and eating disorders.
~ To spotlight and better recognize the sometimes subtle signs of steroid abuse and eating disorders (including their destructive subcultures that promote them).
~ To examine what peers and educators can do to reach out to someone they feel may be privately struggling with steroid abuse or an eating disorder.

Living in the shadow of his older brother's past athletic glories, Donnie turns to steroid abuse to help him "measure up" on the basketball court. Not long after, he finds his life slowly spinning out of control as his girlfriend, Angela tries in vain to help him kick his addiction.

In the meantime, Angela is also struggling to convince her friends, Dara and Lucy, that contrary to what they've read on the internet, anorexia and bulimia are not "lifestyle choices" but, instead, serious medical disorders. Angela should know; she too once struggled with bulimia but now finds herself reluctant to share this potentially helpful fact with her two misguided friends.

Donnie's coach, Jack, is also struggling with intervening in what he suspects may be Donnie's steroid problem. However, once Jack's sister, Joy, reminds him of her son's tragic loss to drugs, he is forced to reconsider his position. Focusing on body image issues via steroid abuse and eating disorders, "More Than This" also strongly emphasizes the importance of doing right by others - even when it's personally difficult.
