Practitioner Emily Isaacson has worked in two eating disorder centres, both in Canada and the US. She suffered from a severe eating disorder as a teenager for 5 years and was cured after becoming an out-patient at the famous Montreux Clinic in Victoria. Her journey to transcend this tendency became an quest for knowledge, and after working at the clinic herself and learning from their theory and high success rate, she continued on to study nutrition in university.
After becoming a nutritionist at Bastyr University of Natural Medicine, Isaacson was hired to work at The Centre: A Place of Hope in Edmonds, Washington. She there learned to facilitate the healing of her clients, and taught a seminar on how to cure this difficult condition, even when it presents as bulimia. Isaacson had learned that at the root of all eating disorders, there is a base of anorexic thinking reflecting in self-denial. This thinking virtually pervades our culture and affects both men and women, particularly teenagers.
Isaacson started her own practice in 2005 and has taught for over 17 years on overcoming this thinking by learning to eat according to her metabolism optimizing food plan (scheduled grazing), learning about basic nutrition, and exchanging the negative structure of anorexia for a constructive one. She has spoken at high schools, school board conferences, and led support groups for eating disorders.
Recovery from an eating disorder in our program involves coming to weekly out-patient sessions, and being willing to eat with another individual to keep you accountable, and if necessary help you prepare the food. Isaacson is able to determine your level of compliance, and whether you need a family member of friend to be your helper. She starts the patient off gradually until their bodies begin to receive nourishment, using high quality protein supplements. She is gentle and careful not to upset the delicate balance between life and death even when her clients are just surviving. Practitioner Emily Isaacson can get you back on the path to courage in eating and success in reaching your goals in life.
