“Verily, the support of Allah is near!”
— Surah al-Baqarah (Holy Qur’an, 2:214)
Be well and be in gratitude. Be a pillar of peace, light and divine strength in your home. The divine support of Allah Almighty is here, and with His divine will and love, amazing things are going to happen.

This year UCL’s medical Islamic Society, RUMS ISoc, hs invited us to their annual conference. This is one of their flagship events that aims to address taboo issues within our community under the light of current medicine and Islam. Last year their ‘Silence Begets Silence’ conference was hugely successful, attracting a large and diverse audience around the topic of mental health.
This year will be their 3rd time running the event with the focus of talks being Stigma. The topics that will revolve around this theme are Black magic, Addictions and Eating Disorders. Each topic will be discussed as a panel, with speakers from various backgrounds, followed by a question and answer section. Thank you so much to Hassaanah from Islam Channel for representing ‘War against Eating Disorders’ at this flagship event. Together we can shatter the stigma around mental illnesses InshAllah.
Recovery is a definite possibility.
Take a brief moment and envision a new possibility for yourself and life free from the Demon of Eating Disorder.
KNOW that it’s possible. All it takes is BELIEF and ACTION, and the generous support and will of Allah Almighty.

“It’s around this time that people start to reflect on the
year that has been and what is to come in 2017!
For many of you whom I have worked with, 2016 has been a year of breakthroughs and lasting freedom from eating disorders.Many of your are beginning to realise you can fully recover from your eating disorder. As in 100% full recovery. Food can become just food.
But maybe that is not the case for you? Maybe you
feel your eating disorder stopped you from living 2016 to
If that is the case, I believe taking decisive action
to resolve your eating disorder is the very best use of your time and energy.
No matter how long you have suffered with your eating disorder, you can recover and with that recovery comes a deeper quality of life.
I have seen so many people in our community who have suffered with ED for 30+ years, have a complete recovery.
How did they do it? They decided that enough was enough and they committed to a new way of doing things. I believe HealED is the best method for self help recovery from eating disorders bar none.
Our biggest hit this year (beside the Bulimia Help Method book of course) has been our ‘Home Treatment Program’.
It is a step-by-step immersion program designed to guide you by the hand towards a full recovery from bulimia and binge eating through powerful audios and video. It’s all about effective strategies that work for recovery. No nonsense and no waffle. It covers everything from overcoming binge urges and meal planning, to stopping purging, and regaining a normal relationship with food.
This is wonderful way to start 2017. It sets you up from day 1 to have a year of freedom.
Here are some things people are saying about
the Home Treatment Program:
“I have been in therapy for 7 years and honestly I didn’t find any of it helpful. I had myself convince I was a lost cause and that my mental disorder would continue to control my life.But the information and methods in this program have changed my whole understanding of bulimia, its giving me so much hope and motivation, I just can’t put it into words.”
“I have suffered from bulimia for 22 years, I’m 38 years old. I went through the program in one night and I felt like someone had seen into my soul. I am now right at the start of my recovery but I truly believe I can do it, thanks to this program. If you think it’s hopeless, that you will never be free, just given up a few hours of your time and maybe change your life. And good luck xxx”
I hope you take advantage of this special New Year’s offer for

Are you making New Years resolutions this year? Lots of us intend to start making changes, such as losing weight or going to the gym more often.
We also set intentions to stop behaviors such as bingeing or making unhealthy food choices.
Somewhere along the line our resolve fizzles and, boom – we’re back to where we started. If this sounds familiar, here are some tips to make 2017 different:
#2 – Stop Trying So Hard.
Resolutions are often phrased in terms of “trying” to make changes. I’m going to try to lose weight. I’m going to try to be healthier.
Keep in mind there is no trying; there is either doing or not doing (thank you, Yoda!).
If you’re trying (and failing) at your attempts to change, there is always a reason. Here are a few common fears that are associated with trying and failing:
Fear Of Disappointment: You imagine that by changing your body, you will change your life. But, what if it doesn’t? What if everything in your life stays exactly the same? Maybe that’s too much to risk, so you never allow yourself to get to the point where you will be disappointed.
Fear Of Objectification: You have negative associations to intimacy or fear being seen as a “thing” instead of a person. This is so scary that you never allow yourself to feel good about your body.
Instead of trying to lose weight, examine the underlying conflicts that prevent you from taking the best possible care of your body.
#2 – Make A Different Kind of Resolution
New Years Resolutions are often only about behaviors. I suggest we make resolutions to shift our relationship to ourselves and change our attitudes.
- Resolve to be kinder to yourself
- Resolve to listen to your inner voice
- Resolve to prioritize your needs and wants
- Resolve to be curious, instead of critical
Resolve to stop the negative self-talk and start being supportive of yourself. Make a list of the ways you wish other people would be towards you, such as responsive, open, supportive, and kind. Then, be that way towards yourself. Here’s a handy little reminder for you to download and/or memorize:
Here’s to a happy, healthy and enjoyable New Year!!
