ROYAL OAK, Mich., Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Inner Door Center®, a comprehensive eating disorder treatment center treating anorexia, bulimia, binge-eating and diabulimia, offers clients the only yoga-based eating disorder treatment in America.  Founder & CEO Beverly Price created the unique Reconnect with Food® Yoga-Based Eating Disorder Treatment Healing System. Eating disorders affect up to 24 million people in America, with one in 200 suffering from anorexia. Mortality rates for those with eating disorders include 4% of those suffering from anorexia, 3.9% with bulimia, and 5.3 % of those with EDNOS (Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified).

"Eating disorders can destroy lives but so many people don't understand what the disorders are or that there is effective treatment in Michigan," said Price, a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist through the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP). "My team is committed to the successful treatment of patients using our unique approach of evidenced-based Mindful Yoga Therapy, and we are improving lives every day. February is an important month for those who struggle, where the national health focus is on Eating Disorders. Our goal is to reach those who remain untreated – only one in 10 people with eating disorders seek treatment - and give them hope for a life not controlled by food."

For Wayne State University student, Analena Iacobelli, the center provided a holistic and practical approach that led to her recovery two years ago. "I appreciated the smaller, less clinical surroundings," she said. "Inner Door's comprehensive treatment helped me not only physically, but mentally and was great experience during a very difficult time."

Price and her staff – psychologists, therapists, registered dietitians and physicians - are with patients from beginning to end of their treatment cycle, providing partial hospitalization/day treatment and out-patient psychotherapy for eating disorders. Price has published and presented numerous peer reviewed studies in medical journals and at conferences.

Inner Door Center® (317 E. Eleven Mile Rd. Royal Oak, MI), is holding events in Michigan throughout the month of February (Eating Disorder Awareness Month) to draw attention to the prevalence of a condition.
