Who is EDIT™ designed for?
In the Eating Disorder Intuitive Therapy (EDIT)™ treatment philosophy, eating disorders are viewed as coping mechanisms which stem from the “false self.” EDIT™ recovery is about remembering and reconnecting with one’s “True Self.” Although eating disorders can go to an extreme and require medical intervention, EDIT™ is designed for individuals who are experiencing mild-to-moderate eating disorder symptoms, which present no immediate medical risks. Therefore, EDIT™ treatment is not focused on medical stabilization — the EDIT™ method guides clients to decipher the “messages” of their eating disorders by becoming curious about their underlying cause. EDIT™ techniques offer interventions to reduce eating disorder behaviors, but true symptom resolution is a natural outcome when clients address the root cause of their eating disorders. As EDIT™ treatment progresses, holistic healing occurs at all levels of the True Self — physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
