ex-eating disorder sufferer and founder of the ‘Bulimia
Home Treatment Program’
you are suffering from bulimia and looking to regain total
independence from this
condition you will be
relieved to learn there have been significant
advancements in the management of
Many traditional ways to treat
bulimia often fail to bring any improvement, because they
don’t reach the intimate areas inside the sufferer
that have been affected by the
Therapists or support groups
don’t give you a sense of security or the
intimate connections which are
necessary to create positive changes in the brain.
This is why sufferers often do not improve when they attend
traditional treatment programs.
Bulimia is a complex disorder which affects
all the intimate parts of your
life: not just eating but personal relationships, sex,
feelings of security, life purpose, connection to your own
self and the ability to discern what is good for you.
The situations or people that others would naturally avoid
as dangerous or uncomfortable do not repel you. This is the
reason why many bulimics are actually drawn to dangers
(alcohol, drugs, smoking etc.), intrigues, dramas, and other
life challenges that others with healthier and more balanced
backgrounds would naturally avoid.
You didn’t become such a person by accident.
were growing up, certain
environments impacted on your
The following things are typical of bulimics:
1. Typically come from a family where
their emotional needs were not
met. It does not necessarily mean from a bad family: it can
mean a strict or a cold
parental attitude, too much pressure or expectations on a
child, avoiding personal intimate needs, refusing to discuss
important things or lack of love and affection.
2. Often come from a family where parents (both or one)
suffered from anxiety, insecurities, depression, OCD, drug
or alcohol abuse and other emotional problems.
3. Having received little nurturing when young
they try to fill this need with food.
4. Food becomes a substitute for relationships with other
people and with themselves.
5. Food becomes a way of controlling their life (most
bulimics think if they have the opportunity to binge-purge –
they are in control of their life: but they are wrong.)
6. You are drawn to people with problems that need fixing,
or by being involved in situations that are chaotic,
uncertain and emotionally painful.
7. Often bulimics avoid focusing on their personal
responsibilities (job, health, studies) often because
they don’t know what they really want in life.
8. In relationship and in life generally they are
much more in touch with dreams of how it could be than with
the reality of their situation.
This all happens because their brain has been wired in a
certain way to compensate for the negative experiences they
encountered in the past.
interesting thing about all this is how our brains evolved;
we have what’s called “the negative bias” the built in
ability to remember negative experiences more than positive
once. Many researchers have proved this to be true.
What has also been proven is our brains are constantly
changing or rewiring itself in response to all our daily
This is called neuroplasticity and it occurs in two ways:
1) The brain adapts to what is happening in the
environment (experience-dependent neuroplasticity).
This is an automatic, "unconscious process" and this is how
negative conditioning occurs in the brain – like in the case
of eating disorders when the brain learns to use food to
compensate for the lack of self-esteem, love and affection
in real life.
2) The brain shifts and directs our attention in a
positive way to achieve our goals. (self-directed
neuroplasticity). This is a more
focused shifting and it directs
our attention in a specific more positive way.
This process begins in the conscious mind which then
affects the unconscious parts of the brain (or subconscious
mind). This can only be done by doing
The Bulimia home treatment program
we are talking about here, is all about positive training to
change the way the sufferer thinks and feels, leaving the
negative thoughts behind.
Mainstream medicine for many years believed (much to the
benefit of the pharmaceutical industry) that the mind was
"physical" organ and only
other "physical" things can change
it: like drugs and pills to make you happy.
Changing your brain with something
“non-physical” has been considered as “non-
scientific" and not profitable for drug companies.
Now, thanks to the greater development of different types of
brain imagery machines this view has changed completely.

modern brain scans we can now see

The Good News!
Your brain is constantly changing due to
experience-dependent or self-directed neuroplasticity. And
the good news here is the “self-directed part”.
Self-directed neuroplasticity is a healer for bulimia and
all the negative conditions and problems associated with
The fact is that even if you don’t use “self-directed”
neuroplasticity your brain will change anyway because of
experience-dependent neuroplasticity – but in which way? If
the experiences you have are bad, then your brain changes
will be bad too.
Bulimia will not go away on its own without self-directed
actions. No clinic, doctors or therapist in the world can
make you stop being bulimic if you don’t start to
self-direct your thoughts, actions, habits and feelings, in
a positive way.
Self-directed neuroplasticity is the only key to cure your
Neurons (brain cells) are really much like muscles in your
Neurons can be physically sculpted, trained, conditioned
your focused attention. There are
very specific ways and practical principles that give you
clear directions on how to
make your brain cells work in order to stop bulimia.
How much of the brain is affected by bulimia?
Bulimia affects conscious and unconscious parts of the
brain. Conscious mind means the part which is responsible
for thoughts and logic. Unconscious mind (which is much
the conscious part) is where your
feelings, emotions and sensations are. Also the unconscious
mind is responsible for organ and body functions.
The unconscious mind involvement in bulimia is the reason
why it is so difficult to stop this illness.
Although the conscious and
unconscious parts of the brain constantly communicate with
each other, many functions of the
unconscious brain work autonomic.
The biggest part of
the unconscious brain
autonomic nervous system. It controls the body functions,
organs and the unconscious processes in the body. Autonomic
nervous system is affected by bulimia and you need special
training methods to reverse
the negative effects.
Autonomic nervous system has its major centres
in the: brain, heart and gut.
Three minds of the body: Brain, Heart and Gut.
Ok now you understand about the brain but what about the
heart and the gut? What is their
function in bulimia?
heart and the gut are the parts of autonomic nervous system
which control unconscious processes like digestion,
breathing, blood circulation, body temperature, sweating,
urination, bowel movements
It also controls vomiting reflex, hunger and fullness
sensations and all the sensations
that are associated with obsessive-compulsive behaviours.
That’s why healing the autonomic nervous system is extremely
important to stopping your bulimia.
What does the gut
gut (digestive system of the body) has close to 500 million
nerve cells and 100 million neurons. In comparison: the
brain has about 100 billion neurons.
gut “talks” with the brain chemically (by releasing
chemicals which are then taken to the brain by
The gut also
sends electrical signals to the brain via the Vagus nerve.
Vagus nerve is one of the longest nerves inside the body
whose function is to control the status of the internal
organs in the body.
95% of the body’s Serotonin is found in
the gut. Serotonin is an important neurotransmitter which is
responsible for feelings of happiness. It is also called
the “happiness hormone”.
Healing the gut is a necessary part in
any bulimia treatment. Without
healing the gut it is impossible to stop bulimia.
What does the heart do?
interaction takes place by electrical signals (via the vagus
and the spinal chord nerves) and through chemicals (heart is
an endocrine gland also).
heart sends signals to the brain that are not only
understood by it but also obeyed.
the heart participates in our thought processes, decision
making and even in controlling urges.
- The heart is an endocrine gland and it helps in
releasing hormones like oxytocin - “love” or bonding
hormone. Oxytocin also helps in increasing the well being of
The heart produces the
rhythmic patterns for our whole
body. This rhythm comes from the nerve cells in the AV and
SA nodes. These nodes which are inside the heart send
electrical signals to the heart muscles for contraction and
are one of the most important organs of the heart.
When they do not function properly the electrical signals to
the muscles go haywire and the heart starts to flutter
(bulimics experience this especially when vomiting often).
The heart process and decode the intuitive information. The
heart receives this information first before the brain.
This could be the basis for the saying
“Follow you heart and you will
never go wrong”.
Many bulimics appear to be very intuitive and creative

Now you understand how our
brain, heart and the gut are connected and what role they
play in bulimia. It is absolutely essential to treat all of
them (brain, heart and gut) in order to stop this problem.
As an ex-sufferer
myself from an eating disorder I
know the power of using neuroplasticity as a treatment
Where does the word ‘Neuroplasticity’ come from?
The first part neuro is for neurone (which are the
nerve cells in the brain) and plasticity means
plastic or changeable.
In a nutshell, neuroplasticity is a property of the brain
that allows the brain to change itself.
These changes occur in four ways:
(1) By responding to the world in a certain way
(2) By perceiving the world in a certain way
(3) By acting in the world in a certain
(4) By thinking and imagining in a certain way.
Neuroplasticity starts before we are born when we are still
inside our mother and it doesn’t stop until the end of our
life. Our brains are constantly strengthening some neurons,
making them physically bigger, and it's pruning others that
are not relevant or those which are not useful adaptations.
Neurons are constantly selecting and changing their
connections with each other. All this is happening every
moment of your life whether you are directing this or not.
How do neurons work? Why can you re-wire your brain?
"Neurons that fire together wire together.”
D. Hebb, 1949
This is a simple, yet very accurate statement about how the
brain works. For example, as a child you were bullied at
school for being overweight and you felt angry and
inadequate at the time. Since then, in certain social
situations you feel inadequate (or fearful) even if nobody
calls you “fat”. The feelings of inadequacy just come by
association because once in the past you were embarrassed in
front of group of people.
Another example, in the past you started binging-purging
after coming back home from school. So now, every time you
come home from work (school) you have sensations in the body
and obsessive thoughts in the head which force you to
binge-purge at the same time everyday, you taught yourself
to do. These sensations and thoughts just come because of a
certain time of the day – just by association with the first
time you did it.
How does the program work and how can it help you.
First you will learn 5 steps and these steps form the basis
of changing the neuronal pathways in the brain, from faulty
1 step: BELIEVE ( that you can stop your eating disorder.)
2 step: Re-identify your disorder
3 step: Re- symbolize your disorder
4 step: Re-direct your disorder
5 step: Re-
evaluate your disorder
Going through these 5 steps will create new neuronal
pathways in the brain and change the function of your brain
in relation to an eating disorder.
Your eating disorder has formed certain neuronal pathways
(or neuronal connections) in the brain. And these pathways
get constantly activated and reinforced every time you
submit to binging-purging or a starving cycle. Also every
time you think about or put into action any thoughts
associated with your eating
disorder, e.g. planning for a binge or checking your weight
or reading about how much calories are in food etc.
How do these Neuronal Pathways in Eating Disorder sufferers
You as a sufferer have got to where you are
by subconsciously building faulty neuronal pathways around
food as a cover for some kind of emotional trauma in your
life. It does not even have to be something big, just being
called fat by a family member is enough to send some people
down the dark hole of an ED.
You start to do some kind of activity, skip meals, watch
what you eat, check how much calories are in things, up your
exercise levels and are always thinking about food.
What you are doing is creating an obsession about food in
your brain and building neuronal pathways around this
obsession. And before you notice, “Bingo”, you have an
eating disorder and you never saw it coming.
Although your thoughts and urges about starving,
binging-purging and over exercising have become overwhelming
now, it is possible to change how you respond to these
thoughts and urges. And by changing your respond to them you
can physically change the way your brain works: research has
Your eating disorder has formed certain neuronal pathways
(or neuronal connections) in the brain. And these pathways
get constantly activated and reinforced because you do an
action (starving, binging-purging) and also think about food
all the time: but you can fix it.
On the picture to the below you see the part of the neuronal
pathways in the brain.
Neuronal connections or pathways.
The big black dots are the bodies of neurons (brain cells).
They all connected to each other by their fibre called
Axons also carry its message (electrical impulse) from the
body of a neuron to another neuron. Each neuron connects to
other neurons and other neurons connect to more neurons.
This chain of neurons develops a neuronal network or
Each neuronal network or neuronal pathway gets developed in
response to certain action or behaviours. It does not matter
if they are positive or negative thoughts; if you continue
to repeat something you build neuronal pathways around them.
The longer you do a specific action the more activated the
connections become and eventually it moves to the
subconscious part of the brain. The subconscious mind is
where all our automatic actions and habits live.
Like the ability to still be able ride a bike that you
learned when you were a child.
The thing is your eating disorder
and its associated actions
of either starving yourself or, binging-purging also live in
This is why you can not simply stop even though you have
told yourself you will not do it again. It is not possible
for you to simply get up one day and stop your ED, you can
only stop by changing the neuronal pathways in your brain.
There is absolutely no other way. If anyone tells you
differently then they are totally wrong.
I'm confident that the ‘Bulimia Home Treatment Program’
is the answer to re-claiming your life as it has been for
hundreds of eating disorder sufferers around the world.
That’s even if you’ve been suffering with this disorder for
years and you’ve given up hope of making a recovery.
Because we know 100%, if you change the way you act you will
change the pathways in your brain.
Disorders are closely related to Obsessive-Compulsive
There is a mountain of research done on Obsessive Compulsive
Disorder (OCD) and an eating disorder is a form of an OCD just based
on food, but with another element, pleasure, instead of pain
Your obsession is always thinking about weight and what
Your compulsion is acting on these thoughts even
though you know they are wrong.
Your behavior is doing things to make sure you
maintain your distorted eating habits, even though you know
it is wrong.
extra element is, eating disorder victims get a kind of
perverse pleasure out of their disorder, while OCD patients
get nothing but pain. But the pleasure is short lived and
when it is finished the ED sufferer also gets pain. This is
due to a chemical imbalance in the brain and when the
pleasure chemical has gone there is nothing left but pain.
It has been proven by imminent researchers like Jeffery M.
Schwartz, MD and others who have mapped OCD on PET scans (Positron
that the orbital cortex that is responsible for complex
thinking becomes over active in the OCD patient.
This then leads to the Caudate Nucleus the part of the brain
responsible for shifting unwanted thoughts out of the brain
becoming stuck with the unhealthy eating disorder thoughts
playing out over and over again: this is what we have coined
This is where the problem lies and this brain loop has to be
broken or you will never be free from your ED.
This is where our
Home Treatment Program comes in, as it
teaches you how to break the brain loop by building healthy
neuronal pathways around the defective ones.
Before we continue here is what just a few of the people
who’ve had the benefit of our program have to

Vast Improvement In Our Daughter’s Condition
“We are writing to say just how thrilled we are
with the outcome of our daughter Mary using your
program. She has now completed the program for
the third time, and loves doing it! Each day,
she spends about an hour prior to the evening
meal, makes copious notes and comes out to tell
us her new
understandings, with great joy. As you promised,
it is like having a personal therapist,
available 24 hours of the day.
Naturally there are still some difficult times,

the familiar environment or routine, but overall
there has been a vast improvement and we are now
all very positive about the long-term outcome.
Your program is vastly more helpful than all the

previously. We could not be more grateful.”
G and P Stomp WA.
an explanation to a question we are often asked,
If our brain so changeable why do we get stuck in the
rigid repetition of our eating disorder behaviour?
The answer is part of a larger riddle that Dr Norman Doidge MD called “plastic paradox”. “The plastic paradox
is that the same neuroplastic properties that allow us
to change our brains and produce more flexible
behaviours can also allow us to produce more rigid
ones.” (Norman Doidge MD 2007). Anything that involves
unvaried repetition... he says, leads to rigidity (fixed
actions or thoughts).
For instance, a vulnerable person
(bulimic) has an emotional
episode regarding her weight or body image (someone
called her fat or the like). She rapidly decides that to
avoid these comments in the future she must go on diet.
She diets for days, weeks or months. Then she gets sick
of being constantly hungry, loses control and overeats.
After a long time of dieting the stomach can not cope with the amount of consumed food, plus she gets guilty
feelings about eating so much – so she purges it all up.
The feelings of temporary relief embraces her body: she
feels immediately rewarded. Next day she may repeat it
and get rewarded again.
A special neuronal circuit
(pathway) gets activated in the brain which involves several brain structures. And the more she repeats the
behaviour of binging –purging the more active the
pathway becomes. Finally, the action of
binging-purging becomes automatic and moves into the subconscious mind.
This is also true for the anorexic, but instead of the
binge-purge cycle they continue to starve themselves,
over use laxatives and do far to much exercise. This
also results in the release of pleasure hormones so they
continue to follow this same pattern and im the end becomes
So, you see because your brain is plastic
and you trained it to act in an unhealthy way you ended
up with an eating disorder. The only real cure for
an eating disorder
is to deactivate these abnormal neuronal circuits which
are responsible for your binging-purging or starving by replacing it with
another neuronal circuit responsible for constructive
and healthy behaviour.
Which parts of the brain are responsible for food and
Basically there are three parts of the brain which are
responsible for obsessive behaviours. First, it is our
orbital frontal cortex, part of the frontal lobe,
just behind our eyes. Scans show that the more obsessive
the person is, the more activated the orbital frontal
cortex becomes. This area of the brain is associated with
complex cognitive processes such as decision-making for
instance, when you consciously decide to go on binge and
prepare for it or decide to go for that 10klm run
because you had a extra piece of bread, you use
the orbital frontal cortex.
the orbital frontal cortex gets activated it sends a
signal to the cingulate gyrus (part
of the limbic
system), located in the deepest part of the cortex. The cingulate gyrus triggers the dreadful
feelings of anxiety that
something bad is going to happen
and sends signals to both the gut and the heart causing the physical sensations we associate
with dread and doom or
the anxiety we feel just before
the urge to binge happens.
Or the horrible feelings of desperation
the anorexic feels if someone says they look a bit
rounder in the face, or when they read a label that says
they ate something that had a few calories in it.
The “automatic gearshift”, the caudate nucleus,
sits deep in the centre of the brain
and allows our
thoughts to flow from one to the next. But in people who
obsession the caudate nucleus becomes “sticky” and does
not move on from one thought to the next. So the anorexic
thoughts just get stuck in a: Brain loop.
(PET) of obsessive patients show that all these
three different areas of brain become hyperactive. The causes of this
hyperactivity that results in a brain loop can have many
In some cases an obsessive gene runs in families, some
cases they are related to developmental problems and in some
cases are due to environmental factors.
The thing is none of this would turn
into a fully developed eating disorder without constant
thought and action.
At first people learn to diet, learn binge and purge or
starve and over exercise.
They do it in a step by step fashion, then they process
these thoughts with emotions. Then they get feelings of
reward when they
binge or act on their starve and exercise routine, this
then leads to them practising their unhealthy habits
more and more until they have a full blown eating
disorder, or brain loop.
But the question is how to unlock this
eating disorder brain
The answer is you have to do something totally
different, something so unexpected that you snap the
link you have built in your brain, there really is no
Our program is a full treatment program that helps you
to change the circuits in your brain by unlocking the link between the
orbital cortex and the cingulate gyrus and normalising
the functioning of caudate nucleus.
While using the program people can shift the caudate
nucleus “manually” by paying constant effort and attention
also by actively focusing on something besides
their ED, such as new pleasurable activities. This
approach makes neuroplastic sense because it grows new
neuronal circuits (pathways) that gives pleasure and
triggers dopamine release which rewards the new activity
and consolidates and grows new neuronal connections.
These new neuronal circuits (pathways) will compete with
the older defective ones and according to the "use it or lose
it principle", the old network will weaken and dissipate
the less they are used.
The major principles behind our Neuroplasticity Eating Disorder
Treatment Program is the two key laws of
You have already learned the two key laws of
plasticity which also underlie the treatment. The
first is that “Neurons that fire together wire
together.” By doing something pleasurable instead of
the compulsive act of bunging-purging, or starving
etc, patients will form
new neuronal pathways that are gradually reinforced
by simply not giving into the eating disorder urges.
The second law is that ”Neurons that fire apart wire
apart”. By not acting on your compulsions
(binging, purging, starving) you weaken the link between the
compulsion and the idea and it will ease the anxiety
and the agitations that occur when your eating
disorder is triggered into action.
This delinking is crucial because as we have seen
while acting on binging, purging or starving thoughts
it appears to ease the
anxiety in the short term (for an hour or so), but it
makes the eating disorder worse in the long term.
It works very well even for severe cases of bulimia
and anorexia, it will also work for binge eaters,
because the same faulty neuronal pathways exists in
all ED sufferers.
The Cause Of Eating Disorders Unlocked
Like we said before about the neuronal connections in the
brain that the longer you do a specific action the more activated the
connections become. Eventually the action becomes
automatic and moves to the
subconscious part of the brain.
The subconscious mind is a very strange place indeed, it is where all our automatic actions and habits live
and all our obsessions too. Like how to
still ride a bike that you learned when you were a child,
your eating disorder and its actions of either starving
yourself or, binging-purging also live in there.
You see, the mainstream medical and therapeutic community
tries to treat eating disorders by targeting the logical
or conscious part of your mind.
They try to reason with your logical mind and show you that
those little voices in your head that tell you you’re fat,
ugly and worthless are wrong and distorted.
But now we know that the compulsion to over-eat or under-eat
is driven by the strongest and biggest part of your brain…
…the part that controls all your behaviour without you even
knowing it. That is…
… the subconscious mind!
In fact, did you know the subconscious mind takes up
about 85%-90% of our brain capacity compared to 10-15% for
the conscious or logical part?
What this means is that
no matter how much you as a sufferer want to stop your
…unless you re-wire your
subconscious mind you will always fail in your battle
against your eating disorder.
the process of starving yourself or binging and
purging happen without your full conscious awareness. You do
it although you know you shouldn't but you
have an uncomfortable feeling in the middle and upper
stomach area or you feel like something is being squeezed in
the middle of your chest, so you are compelled to continue
with the irrational
When you start your abnormal eating behavior you
embrace 100% of the feelings this behavior gives you, so
much so that you lose conscious control of everything else
around you. Another way of putting that is when you starve
yourself you get 100% obsessed with it to the point of
endangering your life.
You fall into what is called an eating disorder trance
again and again. This trance is caused by the releasing of
pleasure hormones by your limbic system - part of your
subconscious mind - because it is wired this way to give
pleasure to stimulus, even if it is unhealthy stimulus,
remember the subconscious can not rationalize. It does not
know if the feelings you have are right or wrong it only
reacts to stimuli.
Here is what a sufferer wrote to us.
Program Helps Me Stop The False Brain Messages
“Dear Irina and William.
Before I found your site I did not know that I
had a subconscious mind. Little did I know how
much my problems stemmed from it.
After working through the program I now think I
can control all these false messages it has been
sending me. Who would have believed they are so
important. Every time I get a false message now
I use your BAM exercise to defeat it. It really
works a treat. Thank you soooo much.”
Jenny Taylor WA.
So where Do These Self-destructive Compulsions Come From In
The First Place?
That’s a good question. Let me explain…
You see the subconscious mind does not depend on
Instead it works on your reservoir of memories from
your childhood as well as those from your distant collective
That means that somewhere earlier in life you got
memories of hurt - emotional or physical. You
experienced dissatisfaction with yourself and it happened to
you on at least several occasions.
Consciously you may not even remember.
your subconscious mind sure does and keeps the memory of
these feelings forever.
That's why you get those bad feelings of anxiety, fear,
guilt and dissatisfaction with yourself from time to
time even without a specific reason for it.
These feelings have been kept by your subconscious mind for
years and are released when something triggers them, and you
are totally unaware it is happening.
Another reason why your subconscious mind works this way is
that in the past you may not have enough positive joyful
emotional input, especially in relation to people close to
you like family, friends and parents.
In this case your eating disorder becomes a substitute for …
…positive emotional input because of the trance like
feelings it gives you while you are starving or binging.
This is why many eating disorder sufferers are
able to stop their erratic eating behavior and sometimes get
better while they are on a positive emotional wave… like say
falling in love, being pregnant or some other personal success.
And then when these feelings stop the sufferers slips
back into there eating disorder to compensate for their lack
of positive feelings.
An eating disorder also gives you feelings of control.
And that is why you find it so hard to give it up, because
you feel safe and like you’re the boss the person in total
But of course you’re lying to yourself because it’s the
eating disorder that’s in control, not you.
How Does Your
Subconscious Control You ?
Your Subconscious controls you by forming subconscious
blockages (or brain locks).
One of the most common examples of a common subconscious
blockage or Brain Lock for the eating disorder sufferer is
the "Broken Eye Syndrome".
This syndrome is when people see themselves as
fat in the mirror although in reality they are very thin in
the case of the anorexic, or can look perfectly normal in
the case of the bulimic.
Eating disorder sufferers perceive what they see is the
truth, although it is their mind lying to them.
What Sort Of Other Subconscious Blockages May Be Keeping You
They can be just about anything. Blockages are very
individual. No two people are going to have exactly the same
And you are unlikely to “guess” your own blockage using
rational thinking. Most people are extremely surprised once
they use my techniques to uncover what’s really stopping
them from getting well.
Here’s some real life examples of subconscious blockages
I’ve encountered with clients my program has helped to
recover from eating disorders:
- A 42 year old woman who had bulimia for 20 years
subconsciously believed that it was her closest friend and
if she stopped her bulimia she would lose a whole part of
herself and her life. After eliminating this blockage she
was able to let the bulimia go with ease.
-A man who suffered anorexia-bulimia for 9 years had
an emotional blockage that he would inevitably put on so
much weight that he couldn't perform as a gymnast if he
stopped his binging-purging and starving himself. After
eliminating this blockage his bulimia nervosa was cured.
- A 36 year old woman thought that the eating
disorder was her lifestyle and if she stopped she would have
a boring life without pleasure and satisfaction. She was
able to stop it soon after identifying and eliminating her
- A 29 year-old man believed that his eating disorder
was a part of who he is and it was impossible for him to
stop because ‘you can't deny a part of yourself’. He stopped
his bulimia completely after 6 months working with the
The list goes on and on.
At this point you may like to reflect on what you have read,
does any of this sound like you, or a loved one?
We’re in demand around the world to conduct workshops on our
Neuroplasticity Treatment Eating Disorder program. We have
met many sufferers or family members who tell us that what
we have said makes so much sense. It is like a light bulb
turns on in their head and they can finally see some light
at the end of the tunnel.

first before we continue here are more people to tell you
how effective this program is:
Starting To Love Myself Again
I'm Lauren T and I have just recently started
your eating disorder home treatment program
(started 8 Feb 2008). I have had
anorexia-bulimia for over three years now.
I cannot believe the positive changes I can feel
inside myself since starting the treatment
program! So much of my fear has disappeared. I
feel like I’m actually starting to love myself
and I realize that life is so worth living and
there is so much to live for!
I just started code four of the transformational
codes today and find them exhilarating.
I also would just like to ask you which audio
tracks are the most important ones to listen to?
I find that I really really love the "happiness
first" by Jamie Smart. I find I always renew my
strength and positively so much by listening to
it and when I listen to it I love to write down
the things that get me excited. Every time I
finish listening to that track I feel so excited
about what my life can become! And I truly
believe that I can do it!
Since starting the program I honestly am feeling
It’s So Simple And Easy
so clear and simple. I'm sitting here enjoying
the benefits, rather than moving into my head,
thinking: ‘Could it really be this easy?' It's
lovely to see the clarity that Irina and
William have come up with, and their easy way to
gain access to the tremendous power that's
really available to each of us.”

This Home Treatment Program Is The Answer To
of the best ways to deal with an eating disorder
is to use a Home treatment program. The problem
with an eating disorder is it does not live in
the clinic or the therapists room, it lives at
home where the sufferer lives. With Dr Irina
Webster and Williams Bulimia Nervosa home
treatment program you have help 24/7. When
things get tough all you have to do is turn the
program on and you have instant help. It is
simply the best way to go.”

believes that the mind lies to you and is
one of the major problems with eating disorder
sufferers. When an Anorexic or a Bulimic look in
the mirror and see a fat person looking back
although they are not fat at all, is the mind
telling the sufferer a lie.
And here’s what a hypnotherapist to the stars who treats a
lot of Hollywood’s elite with eating disorders has to say
about the power of changing your subconscious programming:

At the Mind/Body Medical Institute, part of Harvard Medical

Now I believe that no one is doomed and everyone

choices you make in life: the choice to recover

I’m Finally Back In Control Of My Life
“The Bulimia Nervosa Home Treatment Program
really helps you do things differently. It helps
you to get major benefits from simply plugging
into your brain power for 30 minutes a day
without making that much effort, because it is
delivered straight to your mind through an audio
presentation. You gradually realize that
thoughts and feelings related to food become
less prominent and you finally get in control.
And that's terrific!”

Eating Disorder Once And For All

spiritual health - and more importantly stop acting on their
bulimic or anorexic compulsions - within 10 to 14 weeks.
You’ll find you only have to use the program for half an
hour a day to experience the massive improvements. And most
of it requires little effort.

activity and resist the binging-purging or over
exercising episode for at
least for 30-40 min a day. If one can’t resist that

it is only for a few minutes. That resistance, that
effort will start to lay down new neuronal
pathways which will replace the old ED circuits.
