Lori Hanson suffered from bulimia for 34 years until she took treatment decisions into her own hands and turned her life around. Now her book It Started With Pop-Tarts... and workshops are getting the attention of a tough crowd: young people. She recently won the prestigious Mom's Choice Award® for her efforts and is busier than ever talking to high school and college students, parents and community groups. This is a hot topic and feeds the efforts of National Eating Disorder Awareness Week.
Her book, It Started with Pop-Tarts...An Alternative Approach to Winning the Battle of Bulimia, is part memoir, part detailed how-to. It can help turn around the most troubling eating disorders, says Hanson, who bases her holistic "Hot Pastry Principles" on finding balance, peace and freedom.
The Hot Pastry Principles are made of up five ingredients. By following her recipe individuals can find the way to holistic recovery from eating disorders, weight issues and being stressed out.
The first principle is learning to balance your body chemistry which requires combining a nutrient rich diet and natural supplements. Many individuals struggle with cravings, bingeing, weight gain and stress out because their internal chemistry isn't balanced.
The second principle is improving self-esteem. "This is a critical component to recovery from eating disorders and addictions" say Hanson. "An individual who doesn't value themselves, can't identify with their inner beauty or connect with why they are important won't be able to fully recover and regain control of their life."
In her talks, Hanson candidly describes the path she took over the years (this is where the Pop-Tarts come in). She admits she went through years of trial and error including traditional treatment. Her alternative recipe for healing also costs less than conventional medical therapies, she points out.
Hanson is founder and president of Learn2Balance, a company focused on improving the lives of others, and Shewolf Press. A media favorite, she has appeared on many radio and TV shows to create awareness about the epidemic of eating disorders. Her goal is to help individuals find help and healing at a much earlier stage in life than she did.
A dynamic and humorous speaker who also write song lyrics, Hanson covers self-esteem, body image, reducing stress, improving diet and quality of life, and coping skills that help teens and young adults avoid addictive behaviors. She consults with individuals on eating disorders, weight and stress management. Clients learn the five strategies (Hot Pastry Principles) for self-healing through a series of structured sessions, support and referrals to holistic practitioners.
