Eating disorder is the result of some emotional issue that is buried and acted out on the body. To treat an eating disorder the individual needs to be stablized medically speaking. After that, the work begins to help the individual address underlying issues that to present they have chosen to avoid. Understanding the "reasons behind the behavior" helps an individual not just change their "unwanted behaviors" but helps them become empowered over their deeper issues. Once they understand and resolve the underlying issues their is a greater chance of not repeating destructive behavior in another form.
