The voice of eating disorders will have individuals inaccurately believing that in order to be happy, one has to lose weight and look good. The truth is that happiness and self-esteem come from loving yourself for who you truly are. Achieving that goal is only possible through recovery. With treatment, support from others, and smart self-help strategies, a person can overcome their eating disorder and gain true self-confidence. The road to eating disorder recovery starts with admitting a problem exists. True recovery from eating disorders involves: learning to listen to your body; learning to listen to your feelings; learning to trust yourself; and learning to accept and love yourself.

While most eating disorder issues are treated by cognitive behavioral methodologies or specialized outpatient/inpatient programs, Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, PhD provide relief first and foremost for the brain of one suffering from an eating disorder----without giving them medication. We believe that the neural circuitries responsible for the compulsive behaviors with eating are not necessarily only a neurotransmitter issue but of overused neural networks that affect the harmonization, balance, and decisions of the whole brain.

Eating disorders are often generated by social pressure. The social pressure generally is extended from a place of vanity, which is abundant in our society. However, once an eating disorder takes hold it becomes difficult for an individual to stop or decrease the behavior because it has become a habit, and the mind and body have adjusted to the new stimulus. Eating disorders take a two-pronged approach with therapy and psychiatry. Therapy is used so the individual can address the root causes of why the eating disorder started and learn methods to overcome the eating disorder. Because eating disorders are a learned behavior it can be difficult to stop though no fault of the client.
