More Access to Eating Disorder Treatment


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 20, 2014

The Bella Vita, one of the country’s premier treatment centers for anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder and EDNOS, is scheduled to launch a Day treatment program and Intensive Outpatient treatment program in Santa Clarita, California in early 2015. Our new treatment center will offer the necessary care, education and support for adolescent and adult males and females in the heart of the Santa Clarita and Antelope Valleys.

Eating disorder pioneer Dr. Patricia Pitts, PhD, discovered there was a need for eating disorder resources and treatment in the Santa Clarita and Antelope Valleys. “When a community has limited resources for individuals struggling with eating disorders, the community is missing its heartbeat,” Dr. Pitts shared. Opening this new treatment center will provide the community with much needed expert care. “We get excited for each individual that walks through our doors. We understand someone with an eating disorder turns to food or away from food as a way of coping with issues in their life. Along the way, their eating disorder begins to remove intricate pieces of one’s life, such as self-compassion, positive self-esteem, health boundaries and an appreciation for one’s body that makes us whole. With our guidance, we will re-establish those pieces and begin a journey towards wellness – a balance of physical, mental and spiritual health,” Dr. Pitts explains.

Patients enrolled in either program will have a personalized structured treatment plan that includes individual, family and group therapy sessions focused around nutritional, psychological and medical goals to improve their well-being. The treatment center also plans to offer free weekly Family & Friends and Community Eating Disorder Support Groups to provide even more support to the communities at large. More details about the opening of The Bella Vita Santa Clarita will be available on the company website.

About The Bella Vita. At The Bella Vita we recognize the many signs and symptoms an individual struggling with an eating disorder may show the world, even if everyone else may miss them. We have seen this with our thousands of patients – females, males, adolescents, adults and all ethnicities who have struggled with anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder and disordered eating. We believe that each individual is whole. Working side by side, we guide our patients to put the pieces back together.

The Bella Vita is a CARF accredited program with transitional living and several residential and outpatient treatment centers in Los Angeles, Woodland Hills, La Canada Flintridge and Thousand Oaks. For more information, visit http://www.thebellavita.com or call the 24/7 intake line at 818.585.1775 for program and admissions questions or to schedule an assessment with a specialized eating disorder therapist.

MGE Management Experts CEO Urges More Testing And Accurate Diagnosis For Veterans


St. Petersburg, FL (PRWEB) November 04, 2014

MGE Management Experts CEO, Mr. Luis Colón, is supporting DC Strategic Solutions (DCSS) in demanding that more accurate testing and diagnosing be done to protect the health and lives of veterans as an alarming number of them are committing suicide every day.

Per a V.A. report, approximately 22 veterans take their lives every day. The Center for Public Integrity reports, “49,000 veterans (all wars) killed themselves from 2005-2011 – more than double the rate of the civilian population.”

“These deaths are appalling and unacceptable. I think there needs to be some immediate and obvious steps taken that can help address this,” said Mr. Colón, also a Veteran.

Veteran’s symptoms such as anxiety, depression, pain and sleep disorders are being treated with powerful addicting opioids and psychiatric mediations which seem to be a prescription for disaster when looking at their suicide rates. “Soldier’s normal reactions to the extremely abnormal situations they experience are now being labeled as a mental illness. Chemical straight jacket (drugs) should not be used for those reactions” said Mr. Colon.

In addition to battle conditions, Veterans are also exposed to many chemical toxins known to negatively impact the endocrine system and cause a host of medical disorders. When combined with nutritional deficiencies and other true medical conditions, these symptoms can mimic psychiatric disorders such as Post Traumatic Disorder (PTSD). Researchers have found that many mental health disorders are in fact unknown medical conditions that are mimicking psychiatric disorders and or making them even worse.

“Doctors are supposed to rule out any true biological causes to what appears to be a psychiatric disorder, prior to making a diagnosis and definitely prior to handing out a psychiatric medication. However, just speaking with veterans and handing them psychiatric drugs is being reported as common practice. This behavior is at best a band aid to cover up a problem, and at worst, is adding fuel to a fire that will explode,” said Dr. Toby Watson, a DCSS associate, and Past Executive Director and current Board Member of the International Society for Ethical Psychology and Psychiatry.

According to Human Rights Watch (http://www.hrw.org), an estimated one million U.S. veterans take prescription opioids for pain, and nearly half of them are using those drugs chronically.

“This underscores the point that correct initial rule out testing must be done so we know more accurately what might be the source of the presenting problem or chief complaint. What is being reported is that the V.A. tends to use drugs to alleviate pain and other symptoms instead of eradicating the cause of their pain, whether it be physical or emotional. Pain is not the cause of the problem; it is a red flag signaling that there is something not right within the person or their psyche. If you get rid of the signal, you lose the ability to find a true solution to their problem,” said Dr. Watson.

DC Strategic Solutions is working with mental health specialists, medical practitioners and integrated health experts who agree that proper initial testing for underlying physical causes must be mandated as an initial step prior to the prescription of an opiate and or psychiatric medication being prescribed. This is especially the case when a veteran acknowledges they have been exposed to chemical toxins, toxins that can negatively impact the endocrine system. Chemical toxins when combined with nutritional deficiencies can mimic symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

“For the veteran’s well-being, let’s take a bit more time and perform the needed tests that can potentially expose the actual source of some of their mental suffering, and most importantly, lets mandate these tests because it will help save the lives of these deserving warriors,”, said Mr. Colón.

“These deaths are appalling and unacceptable. I think there needs to be some immediate and obvious steps taken that can help address this,” said Mr. Colón, also a Veteran.

Veteran’s symptoms such as anxiety, depression, pain and sleep disorders are being treated with powerful addicting opioids and psychiatric mediations which seem to be a prescription for disaster when looking at their suicide rates. “Soldier’s normal reactions to the extremely abnormal situations they experience are now being labeled as a mental illness. Chemical straight jacket (drugs) should not be used for those reactions” said Mr. Colon.

In addition to battle conditions, Veterans are also exposed to many chemical toxins known to negatively impact the endocrine system and cause a host of medical disorders. When combined with nutritional deficiencies and other true medical conditions, these symptoms can mimic psychiatric disorders such as Post Traumatic Disorder (PTSD). Researchers have found that many mental health disorders are in fact unknown medical conditions that are mimicking psychiatric disorders and or making them even worse.

“Doctors are supposed to rule out any true biological causes to what appears to be a psychiatric disorder, prior to making a diagnosis and definitely prior to handing out a psychiatric medication. However, just speaking with veterans and handing them psychiatric drugs is being reported as common practice. This behavior is at best a band aid to cover up a problem, and at worst, is adding fuel to a fire that will explode,” said Dr. Toby Watson, a DCSS associate, and Past Executive Director and current Board Member of the International Society for Ethical Psychology and Psychiatry.

According to Human Rights Watch (http://www.hrw.org), an estimated one million U.S. veterans take prescription opioids for pain, and nearly half of them are using those drugs chronically.

“This underscores the point that correct initial rule out testing must be done so we know more accurately what might be the source of the presenting problem or chief complaint. What is being reported is that the V.A. tends to use drugs to alleviate pain and other symptoms instead of eradicating the cause of their pain, whether it be physical or emotional. Pain is not the cause of the problem; it is a red flag signaling that there is something not right within the person or their psyche. If you get rid of the signal, you lose the ability to find a true solution to their problem,” said Dr. Watson.

DC Strategic Solutions is working with mental health specialists, medical practitioners and integrated health experts who agree that proper initial testing for underlying physical causes must be mandated as an initial step prior to the prescription of an opiate and or psychiatric medication being prescribed. This is especially the case when a veteran acknowledges they have been exposed to chemical toxins, toxins that can negatively impact the endocrine system. Chemical toxins when combined with nutritional deficiencies can mimic symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

“For the veteran’s well-being, let’s take a bit more time and perform the needed tests that can potentially expose the actual source of some of their mental suffering, and most importantly, lets mandate these tests because it will help save the lives of these deserving warriors,”, said Mr. Colón.
