Eating Disorders

An eating disorder is a psychological malady in which someone obsesses over her intake of food as a way of coping and gaining some control in her life. Millions of people today suffer from some form of an eating disorder. Eating disorders are most common among women.

 

When you begin to notice that your eating habits are affecting your life, your happiness, and your ability to concentrate, it is important that you talk to somebody about what you're going through.  The most effective and long-lasting treatment for an eating disorder is some form of psychotherapy or counseling, coupled with careful attention to medical and nutritional needs. Ideally, this treatment should be tailored to the individual and will vary according to both the severity of the disorder and the patient's individual problems, needs, and strengths.

 

If you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms of an eating disorder it is critical to seek help now. An eating disorder is a serious psychological condition needing therapy, and not one to be taken lightly. Constantly stressing over food and body image affects your life in many ways. Relationships, physical health, performance at school and work, as well as other enjoyable activities in life can be negatively altered by an eating disorder. Having an eating disorder is looked upon as a way of controlling your life, but typically in the end, it is the thing that makes you lose control.
