"Anorexia. The Real Causes": Author Lorenzo Bracco, MD

Date:

04/09/2015


in Conversation with author and journalist Dario Voltolini

Dr. Bracco will speak about his book, "Anorexia. The Real Causes," which presents leading-edge innovative solutions for the understanding and cure of a pathology that is steadily growing in today’s world.  Dario Voltolini will speak about the inspiring story of his daughter, who suffered from anorexia and went on to enjoy a healthy life. "Anorexia: The Real Causes," which received the Cesare Pavese Award 2013 for nonfiction medical writing, proposes an original solution for the prevention and treatment of female adolescent anorexia. Dr. Bracco offers a new hypothesis: anorexics consistently show an unacknowledged disparity between the daughter’s blood group and that of her mother.  It is also important to take into account the now widely recognized fact that several concurrent causes trigger the onset of anorexia and eating disorders—primary among them are prenatal intrauterine traumas and traumas in the first months of life.  Dr. Bracco’s unified theory and practical solutions frame known causes of anorexia within a pioneering perspective that brings forth new ways to solve this complex and dramatic problem.    Lorenzo Bracco MD, is an Italian physician living in Turin. He integrates a vast knowledge of medicine, psychotherapy, and nutrition to form a truly a holistic view of the human being. He has devoted himself to the understanding and cure of eating disorders.
