Primal has definitely helped me, but I am hitting it from all sides. There are other things I do as well, all complementary. (It takes a village!) EDs (in all their various permutations) are not just a physical disease, and they're not just an emotional disease. They are both ... plus even more. Primal can (and does) help with the physical element in a big way, but it's not enough alone as it doesn't address the emotional part. I'm not kidding myself here. One thing I know for sure: It never gets better on its own without help, only worse. But, yeah, the primal WOE does take away the food obsession, at least, and you can make it through the day without harming yourself with food (or the absence of food) or exercising as punishment. But the beast still lurks just there in the shadows and needs to be faced head-on.
