EMDR, Cognitive-Behavior Therapy, & Acceptance & Commitment Therapy have all been shown to be useful in the treatment of eating disorders. While anorexia is imminently life-threatening and is, therefore, best treated inpatient, bulemia, bulmarexia & compulsive over-eating may respond if matched well to one of the above out-patient therapies and used in conjunction with group therapy, a peer support group, or a 12-step program.

Eating disorders is a very complicated and serious issue which mainly occurs with woman but a growing number of men are also confronting this. We are still learning as much as we can about eating disorders and the opportunities to effectively treat and overcome this challenge. Caring psychotherapy and counseling along with behavior and cognitive therapies are currently the effective approach to reversing and managing eating disorders. It has been discovered that personal body imaging and family as well as social group messages around food, body size and body image have made for pivotal influences in the emotional trauma around food and eating. Transformation is successful with counseling.
