Signs that you may have an eating disorder:
- Are preoccupied with food, weight and body image (ask yourself: “what percentage of your day do you spend thinking about food, weight and body image?”)
- Have an intense drive for thinness and body perfection. (regardless of your weight)
- Tend to struggle with restricting (dieting, attempting to delay or prevent eating), purging, binging (a feeling of loss of control over eating) and/or compulsive over exercise.
- Have very distressing feelings about your body.
These are really the issues of concern when diagnosing eating disorders. People who are underweight or overweight may have weight management as one aspect of their treatment, but really treating the entire mind, body and soul is crucial to achieve lasting and full recovery.
People with eating disorders spend tremendous amounts of time in fear, guilt and shame regarding their bodies. Control is a big issue, ranging from complete, obsessive control over eating to feeling completely in despair and out of control. Their entire self-worth may be at stake upon eating the wrong thing or believing this day that their bodies look so wrong.
At Innovative Therapeutic Services, we are dedicated to supporting and guiding you on the way to full and complete recovery from eating disorders. We will work with you and your family to create a treatment plan for eating disorder recovery that is as special and unique as you are. And we will help you every step of the way. Whether you have just begun to wonder about an eating disorder, or if you have been stuck or struggling for years, our experience, expertise and resources will always come up with more ideas.
It is important to begin with a thorough assessment of your symptoms and the building of a treatment plan. Your treatment plan is the strategy that you and your counselor will use for your recovery. You, and your counselor together will make the blueprint for your recovery. It will be modified as you go along. It is often useful to include family members and friends to provide the support and resources needed for recovery.
It is often useful to find complementary, additional resources for treatment. Some common additions to your treatment team could include medical monitoring resources, evaluation for psychiatric medication, nutritional counseling, exercise consultation and support. You will be treated with respect and you will be involved in all aspects of planning your care.
At Innovative Therapeutic Services, we would like to be your consultants as you travel your path to recovery from an eating disorder.
