BEHAVIOR THERAPY & DISORDERED EATING
If you: are a chronic dieter, feel severe guilt after consuming certain foods, eat even when you're not hungry, live with anxiousness/depression or have ever felt dissatisfied with your body, you may be experiencing an eating disorder. There are nearly 28.8 million men & women in the U.S. who experience and live with disordered eating patterns. Emotionally, these maladapted thought patterns around food can feel debilitating to over-come. Clinically, eating disorders dramatically impact metabolism, gastrointestinal function, hormone balance, inflammation and weight.
Due to the destructive and advanced nature of these conditions it's imperative to work with providers who understand how to implement various treatment strategies with respect and care. At True U Wellness Clinic we believe every client's healing journey is unique. We combine a functional medicine approach with traditional behavior change strategies to take a deeper look at the root causes of these disordered patterns using tools like food sensitivity testing, stool samples and metabolic testing. We use these tools to repair the gut health axis and resolve decades worth of chronic malnutrition while the behavior changing strategies help to apply the results in a holistic non-restrictive way. Of course, in any personalized approach, it is vital to make the experience 100% unique to the individual. That's exactly what our intensive food freedom program does!
This life changing program includes a specifically designed treatment plan to achieve results. Not only does this plan include all of the lab work necessary to understand any chemical imbalances driving your symptoms but it also offers continuous support from our medical team throughout your time working with us!
