An unretouched photograph of model, Cindy Crawford, is stirring a viral discussion about healthy body image.

Mayo Clinic clinical psychologist and certified sex therapist, Jordan Rullo, Ph.D., says, it's opening important conversations about women's "thin ideal."  Dr. Rullo adds this issue is more complicated than being labeled an eating disorder. It also involves mental and physical health. She says women should, "look at their body less as parts and more as a whole body." Watch her interview below.
