Program for Disordered Eating Patterns

Nutrition is an essential component of an integrated approach in the treatment of eating disorders. When the body is starved of nutrients, and/or overburdened with sugary processed foods, dysfunctions will occur. Symptoms can include
  •    Arrhythmias and low blood pressure causing light headedness
  •    Brittle hair and nails, dry skin
  •    Loss of menses, poor libido
  •     Unbalanced blood sugar levels causing tiredness, poor energy and cravings
  •    Anxiety and/or low moods
  •    Constipation, bloating and other digestive discomforts

These symptoms can usually be corrected through proper nutrition. I will work with you to devise short term and long term goals for achieving optimum health. These goals include
  •      Identifying and rectifying nutrient deficiencies in your current diet
  •      Including foods that have a balancing effect on blood sugar levels
  •      Dispelling myths around certain feared foods
  •      Achieving appropriate biological weight allowing you to feel good about yourself and for optimal functioning of your body

SIX consultations over SIX consecutive months is recommended to ensure progress with goals set. It is also recommended that you are already seeing a counselling therapist or CBT practitioner.

Testing, through blood and/or stool sample, may be required to identify any imbalances or deficiencies.
