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.

Anorexia is Greek for "without appetite" and Bulimia is Greek for "ravenous hunger." They are behaviors characterized by under eating and overeating. If you under eat to the point of risking your life, you are called Anorexic. If you overeat and compensate (by excessive exercise or purging) you are called Bulimic. If you overeat and do nothing to compensate, you become overweight. If you are overweight to the point of damaging your body, you are called obese. All of these behaviors are serious problems. Whether they are rooted in genetics, family history, or current emotional stresses, you need to change what you are doing with food. Please get some help today. The world is a better place with you than without you.

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.
