eating disorders

Do you or someone you know use food in order to feel better inside? Do you eat less than you should in order to maintain a certain size because you think its more attractive?

Eating disorders are an illness which manifest themselves in a variety of unhealthy eating and weight control behaviours. They refer to a group of conditions defined by abnormal eating habits that may involve either insufficient or excessive food intake to the detriment of an individual's physical and mental health. These disorders and can become obsessive, compulsive, and impulsive in nature.

Bulimia (binge eating and then purging), Anorexia Nervosa (excessive food restriction and irrational fear of gaining weight), and binge eating disorder are the most common specific forms.

Although they relate to food, eating disorders are not actually about food or weight as the root cause. The root cause is often related to low self esteem and feelings of lack of self worth.

Many people are not entirely sure what separates someone with an eating disorder from someone who is simply weight-conscious; essentially, it is the psychological and emotional implications that make them different. The main thing to look for in a person with an eating disorder is the use or abuse of food to cope with and gain comfort from negative feelings, whereas a weight conscious person may simply want to lose weight for a special occasion, or simply to look and feel better. Emotional eating is very common, and occurs when an individual uses behaviour with food to change or manage their feelings.

All individuals have their own unique personal issues that contribute to their eating disorder, so treatment is tailored to the individuals specific needs, personality, and lifestyle. At the Oga Clinics, we use a wide range of treatments which are tailored around the presenting issues of each person; all treatment is administered in accordance with the particular needs and personality of the individual. Treatment would typically include NLP, Hypnotherapy, Thought Field Therapy, Time Line Therapy and application of the OGA learning4life Programme. It is our experience that no matter your age or how long you have had your eating disorder, it IS possible to make positive changes, leading to recovery and confidence once more.
