In my new series on mental health disorders and addiction, the segments on Eating Disorders are proving to be among the most downloaded. Today we are covering Binge Eating Disorder with one of the nation’s leading experts and pioneers on this mental health issue, Amy Pershing. Amy Pershing began her career treating the spectrum of eating and body image disorders at the Center for Eating Disorders in Ann Arbor, Michigan, in 1991. In 1993, she developed “Bodywise™,” a comprehensive treatment program to serve a growing population of clients coming to the center with binge eating disorder. Pershing became CED’s clinical director in 1998. In 2008, Pershing and Chevese Turner, CEO and founder of Binge Eating Disorder Association (BEDA), joined forces to found Pershing Turner Centers, an outpatient eating disorder treatment center, in Annapolis, Maryland. Join us for the conversation and get the help you need.
Binge eating disorder typically includes periods of excessive overeating. However, a person with a binge eating disorder does not subsequently induce purging (vomiting), as is the case with bulimia.
Binge eating can occur on its own, or alongside other disorders or conditions, such as Prader-Willi disorder, or a lesion of the hypothalamus gland.
Binge eating can encourage the development of hypertension (high blood pressure), obesity, diabetes and heart disease. Treatment options depend on what is causing the binge eating.
A person with a binge eating disorder feels compelled to eat too much. Individuals will consume enormous quantities of food, even when they are not hungry. Binge eaters believe they have absolutely no control over their eating.
An Invisible Disorder….unlike Anorexia, Bulimia and Binge Eating Disorder can hide behind a façade of average body weight, happiness and competence.
According to a report by CTV last February, Canadian hospitals and clinics specializing in eating disorders say there is a rise in the numbers of adults, teens and children, some as young as five, seeking help for eating disorders. Most of them are women.
I believe this topic also extends to those of us who may not fit into the Bulimic or Binge Eating category but also suffer from a life-long struggle with food, weight and dieting.
These disorders may be baffling to some and a very real obsession for others. Acting in an insidious way, destroying lives. Yet perhaps there is a gift of self-empowerment, love and life fulfillment by heading into and through these disorders?
What I’ve come to learn is that these types of eating disorders are usually not about the food but symptoms of much deeper issues. Issues that I’d like to invite Dr. Paul Garfinkel, a leading Toronto Psychiatrist who specializes in Eating Disorders to discuss on WbD Radio this Wednesday at 3:30pm (EST)
I look forward to diving into Dr. Garfinkel’s wealth of knowledge and more importantly, his experience with these disorders in an effort to raise awareness and promote healthy recovery.
