Dr. Marcella Raimondo joins as co-host in this special episode where she dives rawly into her personal journey of a 10 year battle with Anorexia Nervosa in her early teens; she shares how her family's immigration and cultural practices tied into her eating disorder and recovery; we discuss the stereotypes, prejudices, and biases that run deep in all of us, and which perpetuate eating disorders; and Dr. Marcella shares how her 2nd degree black belt in Martial Arts has aided in her eating disorder recovery journey.
