At LIDO Wellness Center, we take a holistic approach to treating disordered eating in Orange County. If you’ve tried conventional treatment or therapy for an eating disorder and have not experienced positive results, we invite you to read about Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) treatment provided in our facility. TMS is a safe, non-invasive treatment option that is known to be very effective in treating disordered eating. We remain one of the only trauma treatment facilities in OC providing TMS for eating disorders.
How We Treat Disordered Eating In Our Trauma And PTSD Treatment Centers
An eating disorder is a type of depressive disorder that requires a specialized approach to regain mental wellness. Since depression often stems from trauma, it makes sense to utilize PTSD and trauma treatment to reestablish wholeness. Being caught in the cycle of an eating disorder can, indeed, add to depression, however, treatment can be highly effective with motivation on the part of the patient. Along with Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, we provide patients with a wide range of therapy options, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and counseling, all found to be a sound basis for the treatment of disordered eating.
