Empowering a healthier relationship with food and self.
Eating disorders are psychological conditions characterized by unhealthy, obsessive, or disordered eating habits.
Eating disorders come with both emotional and physical symptoms and include anorexia nervosa (voluntary starvation), bulimia nervosa (binge-eating followed by purging), binge-eating disorder (binge-eating without purging), and other or unspecified eating disorders (disordered eating patterns that do not fit into another category).
Eating disorders may create additional medical problems and can even be acutely life-threatening, requiring hospitalization and forced nourishment.
It often takes multidisciplinary teams of health professionals—including psychotherapists, medical doctors, and specialized dietitians or nutritionists—to bring about full recovery.
