Eating Disorders
- a serious physical and psychological condition

An eating disorder occurs when someone has an unhealthy attitude to food, which then begins to take over their life and can end up making them seriously ill. Indeed, some studies suggest that, in the Western world, eating disorders are the third most common illness in young people after asthma and Type 1 diabetes.

Although most prevalent amongst young women aged 13 to 17, eating disorders can affect men and women of any age. Underlying the rise in the incidence of eating disorders is often the portrayal of distorted – and unrealistic – concepts of the perfect physical appearance in the media. This can create a distorted image in a client’s mind about their body – as well as fears about social acceptance – which can lead to mood and psychotic disorders. The consequences can be serious: for example, eating disorders can lead to physical problems such as damage to internal organs, damage to the endocrine system and poor cardiovascular health. In the worst cases, the condition can prove fatal (for example, it is believed that around 1 in 5 untreated cases of anorexia result in death).

In all cases, if left untreated, eating disorders lead to a loss of control of both mind and body. The accompanying negative emotions - such as sadness, isolation, shame, rejection, a feeling of not belonging or being misunderstood by others – also lead to mental health conditions and complications in relationships with other people.

Types of Eating Disorder

The most common eating disorders are:
  • Anorexia nervosa – when you try to keep your weight as low as possible by not eating enough food, exercising too much, or both
  • Bulimia – when you sometimes lose control and eat a lot of food in a very short amount of time (binging) and are then deliberately sick (purging), use laxatives, restrict what you eat, or do too much exercise to try to stop yourself gaining weight
  • Binge eating disorder (BED) – when you regularly lose control of your eating, eat large portions of food all at once until you feel uncomfortably full, and are then often upset or guilty
  • Other specified feeding or eating disorder (OSFED) – when your symptoms don't exactly match those of anorexia, bulimia or binge eating disorder, but it doesn't mean it's a less serious illness

Treatment for a Eating Disorders

Phoenix Individual Retreat was born from a single-minded vision: to provide clients with the most luxurious, confidential and effective treatment for addiction and other disorders. We offer a safe space, a sanctuary away from the pressures and stresses of everyday life in which clients can address their problems and create a pathway to a healthier and more fulfilled life. In other words, the chance to rebalance, re-focus and renew.

As part of the admissions process, each client receives a personalised Phoenix Pathway – a highly detailed plan setting out all aspects of their medical, therapeutic and psychological treatment – which is reviewed regularly throughout their stay at Phoenix Individual Retreat. For many clients, this plan will cover a range of issues or disorders to ensure that they receive a truly holistic solution to their problems. Because eating disorders are likely to have taken a huge toll on the body we use comprehensive medical testing to identify any physical, biochemical or neurochemical imbalances at our separate medical clinic.

At the end of their stay, clients will receive a detailed Aftercare Plan which ensures they remain in regular contact with the Phoenix team and are able to maintain and strengthen their recovery as they re-engage with their day to day lives.

Client Stories
A parent's nightmare There is no worse feeling as a parent than seeing your child suffering and being unable to do anything about it. Our daughter had always been a happy child, smart, done well at school, popular with loads of friends and always playing sport. However, once she went away to university in France teens things started to change.
Ten years of suffering My history with eating disorders began nearly ten years ago, in my teens. I had always been smaller than my classmates — shorter, skinnier, and petite. However, as my body began to develop I was gaining inches and pounds all over my new body and found these changes hard to deal with. I started by restricting my food intake.
