They generally refuse to eat or eat very little, exercise compulsively, and refuse to eat in front of others. They lose large amounts of weight and may starve to death.

A healthy body image is crucial to healthy development. How we look is important. do you worry what people think ? do you feel judged? are you turning to food or exercise to manage stress? Is looking good to others excessively important to you? so you secret eat? Do you restrict what your eating? if you have any of these symptoms you may have issues with eating. I work with women who struggle with any stress around food, eating and exercise.

I address eating disorders from an addiction point of view. Abstinence in eating disorders is about changing the relationship one has with food from something that is unhealthy to something that is healthy and life giving. 12 step programs or some other eating support group in the community is often advised to insure success. Body image is also covered when treating someone with an eating disorder.

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.

Those who suffer from eating disorders tend to have underlying control issues. The one thing that they have control over is what they allow in their bodies and how they eliminate much of what they eat. Many times it is related to a poor self concept and a distorted picture of self. Learning to change the view from the inside out and the outside in can greatly impact this very serious and deadly issue.
