Mum Please Help Summary

Mum Please Help: A Mother's Quest to Help Her Daughter Overcome Anorexia and Bulimia by Karen Phillips

This title presents a revolutionary approach offering the first home treatment programme for sufferers of eating disorders and their carers. It is based on the concepts of 'neuroplasticity' - re-wiring the brain to transform negative thoughts and emotions into positive ones - and 'mindful awareness'. It provides a holistic plan to address the needs of eating disorder sufferers, developed by Karen with the help of expert, Dr Irina Webster, by directing the suffers attention away from food. Part memoir, part self help manual, this book traces a mother's harrowing but ultimately heartwarming story of her journey to fight the disease that threatened her daughter's life. After going through research, professional consultations, lectures by the likes of Deepak Chopra and others, and many hours of insightful dialogue with her daughter, Amy Karen, with the help of expert Irina Webster, MD, has devised a holistic plan to address the needs of those suffering from eating disorders. "Mum, Please Help" explains, step by step, how you can beat any eating disorder at its very core. This is the personal story of a mother who wanted desperately to save the life of her daughter, and succeeded. And she has come to share the fruits of her heartbreaking but victorious journey with all those who have a loved one suffering from an eating disorder, or who may themselves be sufferers.

Mum Please Help Reviews

"When my daughter nearly died in the hospital from anorexia-bulimia, I became absolutely determined to find a cure for this dreadful disease. Now, a few years later, she is completely healthy - physically and emotionally" - Karen Phillips 'I have had this problem for 36 years. I bought your book and I am doing really well with the advice you have given...I cannot tell you enough about how much it has helped me. I honestly thought I was going to go to my grave with this addiction, but now I can see a light at the end of the tunnel.' - P.W., Australia"
