In this episode of Waking Up Bipolar, Chris Cole speaks with Dr. Carolyn Coker Ross, internationally known author, speaker, expert and pioneer in the use of Integrative Medicine for the treatment of eating disorders, addictions, mood and anxiety disorders, and obesity.
Dr. Ross is a graduate of Andrew Weil’s Fellowship Program in Integrative Medicine, is the former head of the eating disorder program at internationally-renowned Sierra Tucson, and is a highly-revered consultant for treatment centers around the US. She is the author of three books including one of the first books on Binge Eating Disorder: The Binge Eating and Compulsive Overeating Workbook and her recent book, The Emotional Eating Workbook. Her newest book, The Food Addiction Recovery Workbook was just released September 1, 2017. Dr. Ross currently has a private practice in Denver and San Diego.
Dr. Ross comes from a Health at Every Size, Intuitive Eating, Integrative Medicine approach that seeks to liberate, not oppress. I am tremendously grateful for her presence in my life, and the influence her expertise has had on my own location with binge eating disorder, addiction, and bipolar recovery.
