Iceberg was established in late 2004 with the aim of increasing awareness of eating distress and eating disorders. The launch of this website in 2009 goes further towards realising the vision of Iceberg which is to provide dedicated support for sufferers of eating distress and eating disorders (ED) along the path to recovery. Much like an iceberg, it is not the visible symptoms of ED that are the majority of the problem. A significant part of the ED is hidden in the underlying condition and this must be addressed carefully during the recovery process.
Iceberg has been set up to support both male and female sufferers along the path to recovery from all forms of ED including anorexia, bulimia and emotional over-eating. Recovering from an ED is about more than just getting better. It is more than just leaving the bad times behind. Recovery offers the chance to embrace life, live fully, unapologeticaly and to be the best that you can be.
This website is designed to be a free self-help tool by providing information which can be used by sufferers, in their own time, to help themselves and their carers to work on recovery every day, not just therapy days.
On this site you will find:
- A new tip each day to encourage and support your recovery.
- Articles and posts submitted by those already recovered, or on the road to recovery, about helpful tips, learnings and new understandings.
- Stories from people who have recovered - it can be done!
- Nutritional recipes - rebuilding health is an important process.
- Research and findings about Eating Distress, Eating Disorders and recovery.
