This week’s blog post features Edward Tyson, MD, a physician in private practice, and Jessica Setnick, MS, RD, CEDRD, Senior Fellow at Remuda Ranch. Their session is titled: When "Being Healthy" Goes Too Far: Assessment and Treatment for Orthorexia and Pathological Exercise. In our wellness-focused society, our clients are constantly bombarded with messages to “eat well and exercise.” Taken to the extreme when used as a response to emotional stress or a recent medical scare or diagnosis, or combined with the drive to excel and a tendency toward perfectionism, these otherwise healthy behaviors can cause illness, injury, and worse. Where is the line between healthy and appropriate versus detrimental and dangerous? And how do we lead our clients back from the danger zone? This presentation will provide answers to both questions so that RDNs can identify and manage orthorexia and pathological exercise in any area of practice.
