Do you find yourself eating for no particular reason? Do you prefer to eat in private? Food carries with it many powerful symbols. It can be used to nurture, comfort, and strengthen. It can also be used to control, punish, shame as well as suppress our feelings. Like any other addiction, food can be used to disconnect us from our intuition and alienate us from ourselves and others. Therapy is an ideal place to explore issues and feelings around food.

Disordered eating describes a variety of abnormal eating patterns which vary in level of severity and frequency and is common during times of stress or hard times. An eating disorder can cause significant health problems and requires medical attention. Individual therapy is an option to explore the root causes of the disordered eating which can be used to create an individualized treatment plan to recover.

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.

I will look at the best approach for treating the eating disorder, based on your strengths, symptoms, severity and issues that are present. The effectiveness really does depends on being able to address the physical as well as the psychological aspects of your situation effectively. The aspects that will need to be addressed are nutritional needs, medical, a healthy relationship with food and to get to the root causes off life and its challenges and how to cope effectively and efficiently. The effective treatment tends to be a combination of therapy, nutritional assessment and counseling and support group. In some severe cases, residential treatment and or hospitalization has been effective

Just as a drug addict uses drugs to cope, someone with a food addiction uses food in order to deal with their problems. I understand the other issues that often come with an eating disorder, such as poor body image, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, and family and relationship problems. In my eating disorder therapy sessions, I frequently discuss nutritional considerations in our work together. You may be thinking, “What does nutrition have to do with psychotherapy or eating disorders?” Many of us bristle when we think of nutrition, because we think it means dieting or something equally unpleasant. In therapy, many emotional conditions can be dramatically helped with nutrition.
