Important Interview

Just wanted to share this great interview by Rabbi Eli Portal speaking with Aliza Blumenthal about eating disorders, her personal struggle, journey, and ultimate success. I recommend taking the time to listen. She is courageous, inspirational, and offers much to think about moving forward.

S1 E7: Blissfully blisterful (Epidermolysis Bullosa Simplex) with David Beiss Rolling with the Punches with Rabbi Eli Portal

Epidermolysis Bullosa is one of those famous diseases you may know nothing about. EB is a rare genetic connective tissue disorder, causing a lack of protein in the body that binds the layers of skin together. This leads to fragile and blistering skin. In this episode, we will hear from a courageous individual with EB simplex. Though few things are simple about his disease, he shows us how to live life positively even when it is filled with blisters. A big thank you to David Beiss for sharing his story and experiences with us.
