Thoughts, feelings and behaviours related to managing food and weight can begin to interfere with everyday activities. When we focus too much attention on our bodies and our eating, these preoccupations can quickly lead to missed opportunities in other parts of our lives. Left untreated, eating disorders have a high risk of mental and physical illnesses that can become life threatening.
DID YOU KNOW?
People can and do recover from eating disorders but professional help is almost always required. The longer symptoms are denied or ignored, the more difficult the recovery will be.
Any food and weight issues that limit your ability to live a full and pleasurable life are of concern. It doesn’t matter if you don’t clearly fit one of the clinical categories such as bulimia or anorexia – you still can and should seek help.
Please feel free to schedule an appointment with our Registered Dietitian (705-569-3244) and/or our Mental Health Worker to learn how to help foster a healthier relationship with food.
