Eating disorders are a complex illness with many different causes that we will dive into on today's show. Between the estimated numbers of those suffering from anorexia and bulimia, (10-15 million,) to the staggering number of those that suffer from overeating and obesity (an estimated 60-65% of the US population,) almost all of us have some sort of issue with body image, food and the emotional and psychological distress that come with having eating related issues.
On today's show we will discuss with Jillian Dominick, LICSW, SIMPLE & REAL ways that we can prevent eating related issues in our lives and the lives of the ones we love. If you or someone you love suffers from an eating related issue already, we will give you some tips to cope with that as well.
So join us, as we seek and find ways to help prevent eating related issues and develop a better relationship with ourselves and food!

Stacy Bare is an Army Veteran that after experiencing the wreckage of war, returning home and not feeling like himself, decided to do something about it. In an effort to recreate a more positive experience with the war torn countries he fought in, and knowing about the healing nature of the outdoors, Stacy decided to head back to war torn countries to experience them in a new light and help others do the same. What started as a personal journey has turned into a project called, Adventure Not War. The goal of Adventure Not War is to ski and adventure in all the places where Stacy fought, cleaned up after war, or was supposed to go to war and bring a few friends with him, but also to capture their adventures and share them with soldiers and individuals worldwide to help them create a new lens and new experience around war torn countries.
On today's show Stacy joins Lucia to talk about his experience at war, coming home and the passion and purpose behind Adventure Not War. Stacy also shares how it has changed his life and will change others as well. Sometimes the healing power of nature and adventure goes a long way. Find out more now on WellSeekers!
