Develop Healthier Eating Habits
Eating disorders pose significant complications to your entire body. They can become life threatening when left unchecked, because of the dangerous medical complications involved. Treatment for eating disorders may involve a variety of strategies including individual therapy, family therapy, behavioral modifications, nutritional rehabilitation and medication.
Dean Aman LPCMH has experienced therapists that can help you overcome your eating disorder. We offer the resources and strategies you need to recover your quality of life.
What Qualifies As An Eating Disorder?
An eating disorder is simply a dangerously abnormal eating behavior. They can be especially dangerous because of the damage done to the body. Below are three common disorders and a description of each:
- Anorexia – This is when someone starves himself or herself to lose weight. No matter the body composition, someone with anorexia will convince themselves they could be skinnier.
- Bulimia – This is the act of vomiting to purge yourself following a meal. The acidity causes severe damage to your stomach and intestines.
- Binge eating disorder – This occurs with routine overeating in a given window of time. This may be because of feelings of shame, guilt, or stress.
If any of these disorders sound like you, it’s time to seek help. The experienced psychologists at Dean Aman LPCMH treat eating disorders.
