Eating Disorders Management at Osler’s Medical

Finding Balance in Your Relationship with Food

Eating disorders are multifaceted conditions that influence not just one’s eating habits, but also self-perception, physical health, and emotional stability. At Osler’s Medical, we offer a holistic approach to help individuals rediscover a balanced relationship with food.

Understanding Eating Disorders

Eating disorders, including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder, are severe conditions marked by irregular eating habits and distressing thoughts about body weight or shape. They require comprehensive management given their physical and psychological implications.
