How Do We Regain Control from an Eating Disorder?

Eating Disorders are a vicious cycle that provides you with a false sense of control only when
you are engaging in the specific acts of the eating disorder itself. But, once you realize that you
can gain control via understanding your personal patterned behaviors, you become more in
tune with what you are missing that triggers the impulsive acts of eating disorders to begin
with. The goal is to help you learn how to take control in ways that will make you feel a sense
of success in all aspects of life that aid you to grow into a healthier version of you both mentally
and physically.

Understanding the Underlying Dynamics of What Causes an Eating Disorder

It is difficult to work on addressing a problematic thought process and affiliated behaviors if we
don’t understand why it exists in the first place. The fact that you are seeking help for your
eating disorder is the first step in the right direction to taking back the control that you feel you
have lost in relation to this ongoing self-destructive cycle. Once you gain the skill set to
recognizing and understanding the triggers of this you will be able to learn how to interrupt the
undesired behavior which can be taught to you through your therapy sessions.

Seeking Treatment for an Eating Disorder is a Very Effective Approach

According to the Anorexia Nervosa & Related Eating Disorders Organization, the recovery rates
from such disorders is at least 60% and they maintain healthy eating habits and develop overall
better relationships with food which clearly impacts both their physical and mental health.
Many say they feel they are stronger people and more insightful about life in general and
themselves in particular than they would have been without the disorder and treatment of
such.

Healing from Eating Disorders Requires a Holistic Approach

When you are suffering from an eating disorder it affects your family, loved ones and your
world as a whole. In receiving treatment you will not only learn how to manage your
relationship with food but, you will also feel empowered to see yourself in a positive light thus
allowing you to improve your relationships with others and obtain the necessary control to take
steps to be more successful in all facets of your life. You will be taught how to ask for help
when needed and not feel that this attributes to a loss of control in something.
