Almost everyone worries about his or her weight at least occasionally in our society that continues to reward thinness. People who suffer with eating disorders take such concerns to extremes. They develop abnormal eating habits that threaten their well being and even their lives. There are three major types of eating disorders. Anorexia Nervosa – Individuals with anorexia nervosa have a distorted body image that causes them to see themselves as overweight even when they are extremely underweight. 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. Bulimia Nervosa- Individuals with bulimia nervosa eat very large quantities of food,...(view profile to read more)

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 work with people trying to lose weight from compulsive overeating such as binge eating. I do not work with anorexia or bulimia however. Many times the overeating is grouped along with other addictions such as drinking, smoking, shopping, gambling or drugs. Please don't hesitate to ask how I might be helpful in this area. I approach this work from a behavioral and cognitive viewpoint - but also work to get to the underlying reasons for the overeating to help maintain a healthy lifestyle.

I believe that eating disorders do not exist independently; I strongly believe that there are other issues such as depression and/or low self esteem, with the eating disorder being the only area where the individual feels a sense of control. My approach would be to assist the individual in working through the other stressors, decreasing the need for control through eating disorders. I would encourage medical care as needed. I

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.

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.
