In 1990 we introduced SR® into psychiatric care. The hospital was in Long Beach California and the ward we introduced it into specialized in anorexia and bulimia. After 7 days the results were so dramatic the psychologist who was head of the program wrote the corporate office recommending the program process be integrated into the hospital.
The appalling issue with anorexia and bulimia is this disorder has the highest fatality rate of any psychological disorder yet they are the easiest to fix. All anorexics and bulimics I have worked with have either been very bright, well educated or both.
