Eating disorder care, treated personally

Anorexia Nervosa (AN)

More than 28 million Americans, or roughly 9% of the population, will experience an eating disorder at some point in their lifetime. 1 In this article, you’ll learn how to recognize the signs and symptoms of anorexia nervosa and how to find treatment for yourself or someone you love.

Atypical Anorexia Nervosa

While atypical anorexia nervosa (AAN) may share characteristics of anorexia nervosa (AN), it is an entirely different diagnosis found in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5). Atypical anorexia nervosa is categorized in the DSM-5 as an Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorder (OSED).

Atypical Bulimia Nervosa

Atypical bulimia nervosa (ABN) is a form of bulimia nervosa (BN) that affects individuals differently.

Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID)

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) added a new diagnosis called avoidant restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID) when they published the fifth edition (DSM-5). ARFID no longer has an age limitation and differs from eating disorders associated with body image disturbance.

Binge Eating Disorder (BED)

Binge Eating Disorder (BED) is the most common eating disorder in the United States, with more cases than anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa combined. BED is a debilitating disorder that disrupts a person’s quality of life in a way that may cause them to isolate themselves from others. These feelings will lead to more episodes of bingeing, continuing the cycle.

Bulimia Nervosa (BN)

Bulimia nervosa (BN) is an eating disorder that affects between 0.5% and 1.5% of people throughout their lifetime. However, the actual lifetime prevalence is not known due to the secrecy and shame that can lead a person to avoid seeking help for their condition.

Compulsive "Overeating"

While emotional eating and compulsive "overeating" are behaviors that occasionally occur, frequent "overeating" episodes may be a sign of disordered eating. Although the term "overeating" may be a term used, very often clinicians find that "overeating" may also be associated with patterns of undereating, guilt and shame around food, weight, and body, and other manifestations of struggles around self-care.

Exercise Addiction

Yes, there is such a thing as too much exercise. As important as moving our bodies is, eating, rest, and recovery are equally important. At Within Health we prefer to think of moving your body and using your body, and we prefer to use terms that promote finding joy in movement and compassion for one’s body.

Night Eating Syndrome

Night eating syndrome (NES) is a condition where a person eats more food at night than during the day. It is defined as an "Other Specified Feeding and Eating Disorder" (OSFED) by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition (DSM-5).

Orthorexia Nervosa

Orthorexia nervosa is an eating disorder that manifests itself as an unhealthy obsession with healthy food.

Pregnancy-Related Eating Disorders

Pregorexia, or pregnancy-related eating disorders, are eating disorders that occur around pregnancy, childbirth, and parenthood. Pregorexia is one of the most misunderstood disorders and is often left underdiagnosed.

“Dive deep, and swim far, so you shall come back with new self-respect, with new power, and with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old.””
