Identifying Eating Disorders
When you feel your eating habits, your body weight or shape have become an unhealthy concern in your life. It may be a result of body dysmorphia or an eating disorder. It's best to seek professional support with such issues as the cause and root of the problem runs deeper than just appearances.
Some of the triggers are low self-esteem, shame, anger or loneliness, disconnectedness, lack of confidence and control in life. These emotions gradually affect your body's cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, neurological, and endocrinological systems. Consequently, the risks of depression and anxiety increase, self-harm and suicidal ideation are higher.
Eating Disorder Treatments
A treatment program and interventions that suit your particular concern focusing on lifestyle changes can help create a positive body image and positive relationship to self. Therapeutic approaches CBT, ACT, Behavioral therapy, and psycho-education are most effective to treat this condition. These therapies aim to modify distorted beliefs and attitudes about weight, shape or appearance.
