The Five Principles of Eating Disorder Intuitive Therapy (EDIT)™
Eating Disorder Intuitive Therapy (EDIT)™ is the treatment approach developed by Dr. Dorie McCubbrey, MSEd, PhD, LPC , CEDS– Owner and Clinical Director of Positive Pathways — as a result of her own journey of recovery from Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating Disorder, Food Addiction and Obesity. The EDIT™ approach involves making “thought ED-ITs” to shift from the mindset of the Eating Disorder (ED) to the healing wisdom of the Intuitive Therapist (IT) within you. At first, the voice of ED may be all that you can hear, but you can turn up the volume of IT by practicing the five principles of EDIT™:
Love Your Self: Discover how to develop COMPASSION your entire Self — soul, heart, mind and body — and let this be the FOUNDATION for your eating disorder recovery.
Be True To Your Self: Learn how to trust your INTUITION — your sixth-sense, gut feeling, inner knowing — for decisions about your eating, exercise and your entire life. Allow this to be the GUIDANCE for your recovery.
Express Your Self: Allow for the AUTHENTICITY of your emotions — from the depths of depression to the pinnacles of elation — and learn how to feel your way through your life with COPING SKILLS in your recovery.
Give To Your Self: Discover how to NOURISH your Self from within — spiritually, emotionally, mentally, physically — and let this be your PRACTICE for ongoing recovery and overall wellbeing.
Believe In Your Self: Learn how to AWAKEN your True Self — every day in a new way — to live in FREEDOM from eating disorders and enjoy the life you were meant to live.
By practicing these five principles of EDIT™ you can enjoy complete recovery from eating disorders! Consider starting a journal, and recording your experiences with each of the five principles.
