For so many people, it brings outward shame to be afflicted with an eating disorder; it’s often worn as a badge of dishonor or guilt. Too many fight against eating disorders silently and alone, often acting in ways that will ensure their their difficulties with food remain hidden. You may have fallen prey to the belief that an eating disorder is a sign of personal weakness, or maybe that it’s even a sin. At Thriveworks Counseling Charlottesville we know the truth about eating disorders. We understand that struggles of this nature are not signs of weakness or failure. It’s vital to realize that true recovery is not just an issue of “willpower.” That’s why we are here – to help you heal.

Although different eating disorders spring from different issues, food is a basic emotional as well as physical need from the day you were born. We can use it to satisfy, temporarily many other needs. Or we can pridefully deny ourselves. In addition, we live in a culture that can have very harsh, judgmental attitudes about bodies, attitudes that we internalize without noticing. You may have been told that your body image is distorted, that other people do not see you the way you do. Self-acceptance is the beginning. It is not your fault you are in this condition, although it is your responsibility to get past it. The second step is self-observance, then self-love. I can help.

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.
