Treatment for Compulsive Overeating Disorder

Compulsive Overeating Disorder has to do with our relationship to food is the first way we experience emotional regulation from our caregivers. So, a conscious relationship to food is one that is essential for a healthy lifestyle. Our psychological and emotional relationship to food is a complex one and is often connected to self-image and control, but there are many other aspects of eating disorders such as genetic, psychological, environmental, social, and biological influences.

When several risk factors combine, these factors increase the likelihood that anyone can develop a particular condition. The health implications of Overeating can be fatal, but it is a treatable condition.
