Her eating disorders treatment method is based on Neuroplasticity. Neuroplasticity is the notion that our brain is plastic and malleable and that in most cases people don't need medications or drugs to cure and manage conditions such as: eating disorders, anxieties, phobias, depression and other stress related problems.
