Nutritionist Eating Disorders

Emotional Health, Nutrition, Midwifery Are Highlighted at 'Jewish Women's Health Symposium'

Leah Marinelli has heard a lot of misinformation in the 20 years she has been a certified nurse midwife. She started holding occasional small workshops on health topics at home to educate patients who had gaps in their knowledge. Yutta Engel is also a midwife in the Monsey area who organizes workshops for patients at her home on related health topics. Both were thinking about how to reach women beyond their living rooms and started talking about holding a larger event together. Soon the two were hard at work planning a comprehensive day-long conference with speakers, a panel discussion and vendors from the community. Others joined in with their own areas of expertise.

Devoiry Steinberg, an events planner, came on board to handle logistics. Leah Tikvah Rosen, a community health educator and experienced doula (labor support coach), joined the group and contributed the knowledge she has gained from hosting numerous workshops and events like the first global preventive women’s health teleconference. The result was The Jewish Women’s Health Symposium, held on Sunday, July 8, at the Atrium in Monsey. About 200 women joined to hear a varied set of speakers, including a radiologist, nutritionist, physical therapist, osteopath, endocrinologist and social worker. There were also panel discussions with midwives and doulas.

Is going to a nutritionist helpful for people with eating disorders?

Please answer especially if you have suffered from anorexia


You would need to see a therapist and a nutritionist simultaneously. A therapist, such as a psychologist, would be able to assist with the mental aspect of the problem. An eating disorder isn't just about food. It is about a persons attitude towards

i think so, but it really depends on the person. sometimes it's helpful to hear things from a nutrition expert, or to have a set, structured meal plan laid out, or set goals for recovery (if you're in recovery, that is). sometimes it's good just to
