Eating Disorder Treatment in Nashville Tennessee
Eating disorders are a serious health issue that affect both the mental and physical well-being of an individual. These disorders impact people from all backgrounds regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status. Studies show that nearly 20 million American women, and 10 million men, will meet criteria for disordered eating in their lifetime. If left untreated, these behaviors can result in medical complications that can be life-threatening.
The exact cause of eating disorders is unknown; however, we do know that environmental influences, genetic predisposition, and overall mental health play a role in making someone more vulnerable to this disease. For some people, a preoccupation with food is a way to feel control over some aspects of their life. For others, it is a result of low self-esteem and/or poor body image.
