At Bio-Scriptives we care about your beauty and your health. In fact, you could say that helping you look and feel your best is our primary mission.

But we always want to do that in a way that strengthens you–never in a way which harms you, keeps you down, or makes you feel worse about yourself in any way.

That’s why we feel it’s so important to support the National Eating Disorders Association in the quest to raise awareness about eating disorders. Today is the kick-off date for National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, which makes it pretty much the perfect time to do so. NEDAwareness Week lasts until March 2nd.

What’s NEDA week all about?

The aim of NEDAwareness Week is to prevent eating disorder and body awareness issues while reducing the stigma surrounding eating disorders and improving access to treatment. Eating disorders are serious, life-threatening illnesses–not choices–and it’s important to recognize the pressures, attitudes, and behaviors which shape the disorder…NEDA asks everyone to do just one thing to help raise awareness and provide accurate information about eating disorders.

In fact, you could participate right now simply by sharing this blog post. If you’re feeling particularly passionate about this cause, however, you can also visit the NEDA website to learn about more ways to get involved. If you struggle with eating disorders yourself, NEDA also has quite a few resources which can help you get the help and support that you need.

Stay healthy! Stay strong! And always stay comfortable in your own skin.
