Dr Oz Anorexia: Bryan Bixler Anorexia Rehab
There was so much to cover on the Dr Oz Anorexia episode that he spent the entire hour on this topic, including Pro-Ana Sites such as PrettyThin.com. He also talked about Anorexia Rehab recovery options such as the Shades Of Hope Treatment Center and spoke with young women about their Pro-Ana Diet advocacy. Finally, Dr Oz shared a story of hope about Bryan Bixler, who has recovered from Anorexia.
In 2010, Dr Oz met Bryan Bixler, a man whose personal struggle with Anorexia saw his weight dip to 75 pounds. But even at that weight, Bryan still believed he was fat. After appearing on Dr Oz, he got help at the Rosewood Treatment Center.

Bryan told young women Amanda and Britney that they were on the path to full on Anorexia, and the bitter end of that road is eventual death.
“Anorexia takes everything from you,” Bryan said, adding that death is the endpoint if an Anorexic doesn’t get help or treatment for the disorder.

Britney admitted that she expected to die if she did not get help with her Anorexia. She had a breakthrough, realizing that she other others were endangering their lives.
Tennie McCarty from Shades Of Hope Treatment Center said that an Anorexic’s brain works less and less as she or he continues to starve it over a long period of time.
Tennie offered all the Anorexic women on Dr Oz’s show the opportunity to get treatment through Shades Of Hope. She cautioned that there is no quick fix, but the help was there for them if they were ready to take advantage of it. Did they accept Tennie’s offer?
