5 Ways Eating Disorder Rehab Helps You Improve Your Body Image
Eating Disorders and the Brain
Rehab centers can help you overcome an eating disorder.
Eating disorders are extremely problematic to an individual and their family, especially when treatment is not received in time. Eating disorders normally stem from a person’s poor and distorted body image of their self. For example, people with anorexia typically believe they are overweight and need to lose weight, even if they do not have any more weight to lose. This type of mentality is extremely difficult for a person to overcome.
According to the National Eating Disorders Alliance, the American society’s obsession with how people look and their body size, along with dissecting each and every body part, can be very destructive to men and women who are forming their own identities. This type of pressure can trigger eating disorders, especially to those who are vulnerable.
When a person suffers from an eating disorder, the reconditioning of their thoughts on body image, and their behavior is necessary, and to do this treatment is required. Treatment for eating disorders will need to be ongoing, and the main goal of treatment will be to help the individual understand the importance of nutrition and to help them get past their negative body image they have of their self.
5 Ways Eating Disorder Rehab Helps a Person Improve Their Body Image
According to the National Eating Disorders Association, the most effective treatment for an eating disorder is a form of psychotherapy or psychological counseling, along with attention to a person’s medical and nutritional needs.

Thirdly, an eating disorder rehab will use different tactics to help the person begin to eat proper nutrition, this usually takes some time, but it is accomplished.

Lastly, an eating disorder rehab will provide a person with strategies and resources to help them continue to live a healthier life once they stop treatment.
