Mourn, then eat

EATING DISORDER sufferers (referring to the article on anorexia, 13 February) have been spiritually helped for many years now by the work of Dr Kenneth McAll.

In all cases of anorexia referred to him, he found that there were deaths in the family which had not been mourned, often including abortion and miscarriage.

The symptoms correlated with the situation of the unmourned person, that is, lost, lonely, cold, in darkness, depressed, unloved, nameless, unable to eat or cry out.

Recovery was rapid when the family ritually mourned these deaths in the setting of a Eucharistic service, usually performed by an ordained cleric.

There are more details in Dr. McAll's book Healing the Family Tree.
