Art is such a wonderful tool used to help people express themselves creatively. Its therapeutic ways have even gone as far as being a source of healing for many while undergoing some sort of trauma. In one specific case, Sacramento native – Ramona Garcia, used art to help her recover from her eating disorder.
When Garcia’s eating disorder happened, it was due to a traumatic event in her life – moving to West Sacramento from Mexico. The culture shock hit her in a way that she wasn’t able to understand at the time. She was only 13, no grasp on the English language, and everyone looked very different from her. Bulimia treatment centers in Roseville, might suggest that all of the confusion with her difference in appearance and lack of control that Garcia felt lead to her eating disorder.
