Why you are here
You may have been through one or more eating disorder treatment programs and found that though you may now be a bit healthier, you’re spending way too much time and energy thinking about your body and food while still engaged in food rituals. Or perhaps you are hiding your binging and/or purging behavior and feel you are living a double life, ashamed that you can’t get this thing under control. All the while, suffering all the negative binge eating effects and/or purging on your health and you are afraid of the long term damage. I would guess that you did a Google search of such topics that brought you here, clicked on one of my internet ads or scanned a QR code from one of my posters . What I can tell you is that no matter how you found this page, you will find it to be different than what you will normally find when researching anorexia and bulimia health risks and about bulimia treatment and treatment for anorexia. It is something much better.

Why I’m Passionate about treating Eating Disorders
The first call I received regarding eating disorders came from Carolyn S. She called telling me she had an obsessive compulsive disorder. After a bit of questioning I found out that it was a food ritual that she had that was attached to her anorexia. She had been hospitalized two times with an outpatient hospitalization. At 5’9” she had a body of a model and what appeared to be a slim build. What she wanted was to stop the food ritual. What she got was her life back, including being able to create healthy boundaries with those in her life. She learned that she was bending over backwards to please the people in her life to feel loved, when in effect she was getting more angry with each interaction. When she learned to please herself and let go of those resentments of others, her food ritual disappeared along with any lingering eating disorder based thoughts.
Shortly after working with Carolyn S, I worked with another young woman who was very concerned about her health based on her purging behavior. She had already done some damage to her gastrointestinal system, including damage to her teeth. In her case she had a very controlling mother which brought on her anger both toward her mother and toward herself. With the release of this anger and finding love for herself, she was able to stop all the thoughts and behaviors attached to her bulimia. (If you want to know more about these stories, I discuss them in more detail among the case histories in my book on eating disorders, titled “Do I have an Eating Disorder? Now What?” This book and many other useful products are available for a reasonable investment in the Dawning Visions Hypnosis Store.)
One in 200 American women suffers from anorexia and 3 out of 100 women suffer from bulimia. Nearly half of all Americans personally know someone with an eating disorder. (At the end of this page, I will give you a way to get a FREE MP3 Hypnotic Induction for Eating Disorders.) Sadly the mortality rate of those with eating disorders is the highest of any mental illness. A total of 480,000 deaths result every year from complications brought on by eating disorders. More women die, from the ages of fifteen to twenty-four, from eating disorders than any other reason, 12 times higher than any other cause. Yet only 35% of the individuals who have these problems ever get the help they require and of those, 50% have a relapse rate if they are released while the weight is below 85%.
The National Association of Anorexia nervosa and Associated Disorders reported that 5-10% of anorexics die within 10 years after contracting the disease. After 20 years 18-20% of anorexics will be dead, often from complications related to their eating disorder, including suicide, heart problems, and damage to the kidneys and brain. With malnutrition, electrolyte imbalances lead to low potassium and calcium levels which can lead to osteoporosis which makes the breaking of the bones more likely. Nutritional deprivation causes shrinking of the brain leading to death.
Bulimia nervosa is more difficult to detect because the person’s weight is fairly normal for their height. It affects 1-3% of adolescent and young women. Bulimics are known to have a hard time dealing with and controlling impulses, stress and anxiety.
Non-purging bulimics constitute about 6-8% of all bulimics. Instead of purging, they will exercise or fast excessively after a binge to offset the extra 1,000 to 30,000 calories they ingested. So understand, that just because you go to the gym regularly, DOES NOT mean you are truly healthy.
Medical complications of bulimia are: constipation, dehydration, dental cavities, electrolyte abnormalities, hemorrhoids’, inflammation of the throat, pancreatitis, tears in the esophagus, peptic ulcers, chronic gastric reflux after eating, erosion of the tooth enamel and swollen salivary glands.
The average cost of treatment is $1,000 a day equaling $30,000 per month, which usually isn’t covered by insurance. The cost of outpatient treatment can be as much as $100,000. Given the statistics here, isn’t it better for you to learn more about this illness so you can take the necessary steps toward your own healing?
You probably already realize that if you were able to clear this problem on your own, you would have done it. If you have already been in treatment. then you realize that though there may have been some positive results, the underlying issues are still there. The reason for this is because it isn’t your conscious mind that can help you, which is how the traditional programs work. It is your unconscious mind that needs to be accessed to heal the deep emotional pain that is the true cause of your eating disorder. Hypnotism is by its definition the art and science of accessing the unconscious mind where the permanent changes can be made to set you free of this potentially deadly class of mental illness.
Since Carolyn, I have treated many women who have this particular issue, and I have done it without judgment or prejudice. My practice in Billerica, MA is a SAFE SPACE where we can explore the underlying root cause of your behaviors and finally bring you the peace of mind and harmony of life you desire. Here at Dawning Visions Hypnosis, if you are accepted into my program I will do everything in my power to help you, including access to me for up to a year! That’s right, if you are accepted, you can contact me anytime during that year if an issue pops up. I will be there for you every step of the way. You don’t have to be alone anymore.
Absolute discretion is assured and treatment times are flexible. The only person who needs to know about your issue is you. You don’t have to have an embarrassing conversation with your boss about why you need to go away for six months to a hyper-expensive Paula Abdul style treatment program. Nor do you have to have an equally uncomfortable conversation with your family about why you are paying up to $300,000 to go into such a program. Treatment can be arranged around times that work best for you. And the amount of money involved will be small investment for an intervention that could potentially save your life and restore your mental balance.
Also, you did read that correctly above, I HAVE TO ACCEPT YOU AS MY CLIENT. While my passion is to help everyone, the truth is that your subconscious determines whether you are ready to be helped at this time. While you are interviewing me during your half hour free phone or Skype consultation, I will also be interviewing you.
Lastly, to insure that all of my clients receive the highest quality of care, I only accept 2 new clients in this category per month. Yes, you read that correctly, JUST 2 NEW Clients per month in this treatment category. While there are many treatment programs that will take as many new clients as they can fit in a room, how many do you believe will give you the personal, custom attention that your issues require? And if you ever needed a booster session because another issue came up, for those other programs, you would have to shell out ANOTHER $300,000.
If you’re read this far, you might already be familiar with the constant shame of hiding your binging and/or purging from your friends and family, feeling stuck in your life because this illness takes up too much of your life, never allowing you to pursue those things that truly matter to you. How tired are you of telling your SIGNIFICANT OTHER one lie too many and seeing “that look” in their eye?
