The most effective way back to a functioning brain and the beginning of the end of your eating disorder, is personalized nourishment and a solid strategy.
Anorexia Nervosa (AN) is a serious, complex eating disorder with devastating and often life threatening consequences. It continues to show substantial effects on both adolescents and adults throughout all walks of life. Most of the time, it isn’t until symptoms of anorexia nervosa develop that parents or family realize there is a need for treatment. For this reason, it is crucial to get help at the earliest possible sign of symptoms. Regardless of where you or your loved one is, the first step and key component on your road to recovery from anorexia must be nutrition rehabilitation through re-feeding and weight restoration led by a Certified Eating Disorder Registered Dietitian (CEDRD).
One of the main roles we play as registered dietitians in eating disorder recovery, is helping you to normalize your eating behaviors. It’s helpful to recognize your eating disorder has left you with a distorted view of food, exercise and your body. We will help you to restore your natural appetite cues, like hunger and satiety, which have been silenced by your eating disorder. Initially the primary focus is on the nutrition restoration process. We will be right by your side to offer the emotional support and motivation you might not be ready to give to yourself quite yet. Because it is unsafe to increase your intake too quickly which can cause a very dangerous complication called re-feeding syndrome, there really is nothing more important than the work we will do together in these early days of your recovery. We take this very seriously and know how deeply terrifying this can be for everyone involved. We will work closely with you and your loved ones and develop a plan that best meets your individual needs.
Recovery from Anorexia is an intricate process that takes time, patience, and steadfast commitment. We know it well and assure you that at Sinnergy Wellness Group you will always be in very good hands.
