Our entire community was surprised by the closing of the adolescent medicine clinic at Dell Children’s in Austin Texas.
However, for some patients, Medicine In Motion is here to help.
Dr Pyron and our entire medical staff are trained to care for those with eating disorders. We provide blind weights, subscribe to the Healthy At Every Size (HAES) philosophy and come up with individualized plans of care for patients who are seeking help for nutritional concerns, eating disorders, anorexia, bulimia, food avoidant, orthorexia, and those not yet defined.
We have close relations with ERC (Eating Recovery Center) and CFD (Center for Discover) and can help coordinate higher levels of care when needed. We also work with numerous mental health professionals and dieticians in the outpatient setting and can coordinate care with outpatient teams. We can order labs and DEXA scans when needed and will review the results and create a plan for recovery.
Services Previously Offered by Ascension
Food is meant to nourish and support your body. If the way you think about food has overpowered your life, hope for recovery may seem distant or even impossible. When you or a loved one struggles with an eating disorder, Ascension care teams can help support your journey toward physical, mental and emotional well-being.
You are more than your eating disorder. You’re an individual who needs someone to listen and understand what you’re going through. Ascension care teams are here for you.
Personalized support for eating disorders
We help you address the specific symptoms of eating disorders — like an obsessive preoccupation with food, a compulsion to exercise, extreme calorie restriction and a disoriented body perception – with the goal of helping you develop positive relationships with food. Ascension’s experienced care teams offer support for the full range of eating disorders, including:
- Anorexia nervosa.
- Food addictions.
- Binge eating disorder.
