Remember those posters and PSAs from the 80s and 90s warning about the dangers of drugs?
Research is showing eating disorders may alter the brains pathways.

Read the article below and tell us what you think.
People with eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia may be able to ignore hunger because they have trained their brains to communicate differently.

Eating Disorder Recovery, non-profit organization, hope
Introduction
Project HEAL: Help to Eat, Accept and Live is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization in the United States and a federal not-for-profit organization under the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act (NFP Act). We provide scholarship funding for people with eating disorders who cannot afford treatment, promote healthy body image and self esteem, and serve as a testament that full recovery from an eating disorder is possible.

Project HEAL was founded in 2008 by Kristina Saffran and Liana Rosenman, they met in a treatment program in Manhasset, NY as they were both battling anorexia nervosa. Thus far Project HEAL has raised over $400,000, sent 11 applicants to residential treatment and outpatient treatment programs. through our Help to Heal scholarship fund, and established over 30 chapters throughout the United States, Canada, and Japan. All chapters function to spread the missions and values maintained by Project HEAL. Furthermore, Project HEAL founders and chapter volunteers continue to speak regularly at local high schools, colleges, treatment programs, and other organizations sharing their personal stories of recovering from their eating disorders and educating society about eating disorders. 

Project HEAL has been featured in various media outlets including People Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, Teen Vogue, and Seventeen Magazine sharing our message that confidence is what defines true beauty, and instilling hope in others by demonstrating that recovery from an eating disorder IS possible.
