I Have A Real Good Friend That Had Anorexia Which Has Effected Their Heart (Odds High Hear Attack). They Are Now Purging At Times, Calorie Counting, Restricting, And Possibly Going Through The Early Stages Of Anorexia. How Can I Best Support Them?
The Best Support You Can

The best support you can offer is first, that you care about this person and that you don’t want them to get more ill, or worse, die.
Ask them how you can be a support, and encourage them to get professional help. Perhaps both of you could research the truth about eating disorders and the dangers involved. You could also offer to go with this person to a therapist or doctor. You are a good friend to be trying to help!!
