A new approach offers help for eating disorders.
Do you suffer from an eating disorder that is debilitating your life?
Does your future look bleak and without hope?
Is each and every day a struggle?
Does your eating disorder take up all of your time and energy?
Do you feel depressed, anxious or maybe even totally desperate?
Does your eating disorder control your whole life?
Are your family, friends and those close to you unable to help? Are they also struggling in wanting to support you but not knowing how?
Are there financial concerns about going to private clinics, where the average cost for treatment is over US$50 000?
If you answered YES to any of the above, then realize that eating disorders are exceedingly complex and not just a “single issue”. Eating disorders are almost always associated with depression, stress, anxiety and/or trauma. There are two sides to any eating disorder – your emotional/mental health and your physical health. Therefore, in having a successful treatment for your eating disorder, both the emotional and physical areas need to be addressed. Many practitioners are skilled in working in one of the areas but usually not both.
The sad picture of eating disorders
Eating disorders are not selective; they will target anyone of any age, size, race, intellect and economic status.
The following statistics show us the sad reality of the impact eating disorders have in the world.
- In the U.S.A. at least 30 million people of all ages and genders suffer from an eating disorder. (*1,2) This equates to 10% of the USA population.
- In Australia athere are approximately 1 million people with eating disorders. (Butterfly Foundation, 2012).
- In the UK, a Social, Health and Economic Impacts report, commissioned by Beat and produced by PwC in February 2015, estimates that more than 725,000 people in the UK are affected by an eating disorder. This was using a more robust methodology than previous studies.
- Every 62 minutes at least one person dies in the USA, as a direct result from an eating disorder.(*3)
- Eating disorders have the highest morality rate of any mental illness.(*4)
- Food plays one part and the perception of being in control is another large factor of the disorder.
The 6 main types of eating disorders are:
- Anorexia Nervosa – a life-threatening disorder due to the effects of weight loss and starvation on the body and brain.
- Bulimia Nervosa – binge eating followed by forced vomiting or extreme exercise.
- Binge Eating Disorder (BED) – 2.8% of American adults suffer from binge eating disorder in their lifetime.
- Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorder: OSFED – as revised in the DSM-5, includes atypical anorexia nervosa (anorexia without the low weight), bulimia or BED with lower frequency of behaviors, purging disorder, and night eating syndrome.
- Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) – is more than just “picky eating”. Children do not grow out of it and often become malnourished because of the limited variety of foods they will eat.
- Diabulimia – is deliberate insulin under-use in people with type 1 diabetes for the purpose of controlling weight.
Eating disorders alleviated by new treatment process
From what you have read here, your own experiences, information gathered from others with eating disorders, social media, and support groups, as well as whatever else you have learned about eating disorders, the future looks bleak, doesn’t it? The picture in your mind is filled with negative thoughts and emotions.
What about changing that picture!
The good news is that your mind is very powerful and you have the ability to change that bleak picture of your future into a bright, healthy one. Your mind is powerful and in control of you, just as the eating disorder is in control of you. By changing the picture in your mind, you will be able to alleviate your eating disorder.
How is this possible? Well, Beverley F Searle, an Australian independent researcher and mental health specialist, has created a process called Your Envisioned Mind. Beverley has spent the last 20 years creating this process and helping people with mental health disorders (including anorexia nervosa) get better. Why have you not heard of her? The reason is that as an independent researcher, totally self-funded she was not in a position to tell the world about her discovery.
However, Beverley is now an Amazon best selling author with her book ” What doctors don’t want you to know about anorexia”. So take a moment to get to know Beverley, by downloading a FREE copy of her updated book here.
We are sure it will make a significant change in your life!
Beverley knows her process works from the many people she has treated, including those with eating disorders. When Beverley works with a client, she gives them the tools to change their mental state and overcome and alleviate their eating disorder. Beverley leaves her client with a positive outlook for a bright and healthy future.
In Beverley’s book (which you have downloaded! And if not ,then quickly click on the FREE download link now!), she shares the journey of three women; Paula, Sarah and Emma who with Beverley’s Your Envisioned Mind process have been healed and have bright and healthy futures ahead of them. Do you want this too?
It is possible when you have a strong commitment to overcome this debilitating eating disorder and allow us to work with you in the healing process. You may already have a support person to look after your physical well-being and that is great. Together we will make a team that supports you all the way! Don’t worry if you don’t have any support person, we will make sure the right support people are there to help you.
Now we don’t need to paint you a picture of what will happen if you don’t take action. We’ve talked about that bleak scenario already.
Consider participating in the program and allowing us to help you alleviate your eating disorder?
How would your eating disorder program work for you? Well, the program is focused on finding the cause/causes of your eating disorder and healing them. It is done in the privacy of your own home via the internet and over Skype. We have recently worked with a client who used her iPhone and the sessions went extremely well.
What can You expect:
- The first step is to fill out a form and do a test (nothing complicated!) which allows us to understand your specific situation.
- After this, you attend a webinar which explains the theory behind Your Envisioned Mind
- This is followed by a video /Skype session which goes for approximately 1 ½ -2 hours and allows you to go straight into the healing phase.
- At any time you are able to discuss your physical healing needs with your support person.
- You do have some work to do, however it is easy and only takes a few minutes per day.
- Follow up sessions can be scheduled weekly (or as is suitable for you) and last between 1 – 1½ hours.
- We will assist you over a period of 6 months with everything you need to alleviate your eating disorder and other mental issues that come up.
Take a look at what some of our clients have said about us.
Paula: It’s so nice to know people around me are happier and has made my husband and family very happy. Also I got myself a job which at one stage I couldn’t even get my head of my pillow. (I was that weak and very depressed) and sick as a dog. I have no hesitation in recommending Ms Beverley Searle.
She is the best and I can’t tell you enough, she can help you in every way.
Sarah: Thank you so much for your help and support. It has made such a difference in my life and I don’t know how I would’ve coped without it.
