RCBM Blog Meet the Team: Beverly Price, Registered Dietitian

Certified eating disorder specialist Beverly Price found through her research that yoga could be the missing link in eating disorder treatment.

After working in cardiac rehabilitation and cardiology research at Sinai Hospital for the first leg of her career, Price opened a private nutrition practice in Farmington Hills. She began seeing patients with eating disorders and found that there was a vital connection between behavioral and mental health on the medical side of nutrition.

“I pursued specific training in eating disorders and at the same time took an interest in a personal yoga practice while embarking on a 200-hour yoga teacher training,” Price says. “After delving into the project, I realized that yoga was the missing link in facilitating eating disorder recovery.”

Price joined the RCBM team over a year ago after stepping away from the eating disorder treatment center that she owned and operated in Royal Oak, a subsequent healthcare practice.

She sees patients who struggle with eating disorders such as binge eating, as well as patients with weight loss concerns and picky eaters. At RCBM, patients benefit from an intensive program that provides comprehensive care for treating eating disorders including medical nutrition therapy, psychotherapy, and medication management.

“I offer patient-centered care along with evidence-based approaches within my scope of practice,” says Price. “I enjoy working with a team of professionals to offer a multi-disciplinary approach to treatment.”

Growing up in Metro Detroit, Price earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Dietetics and Human Nutrition from Michigan State University, and her Master of Education from Wayne State University. She is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, credentialed by the Commission on Dietetic Registration.

Price trains professionals around the country in an eating disorder treatment involving mindfulness-based yoga therapy. She has presented and authored articles on integrating yoga and eating disorder treatment among other nutrition and health topics. She was recently featured in Time Magazine’s Special Edition, The New Mindfulness as a nutrition expert.

“Eating disorders are not a choice, they are a serious mental illness with potential medical complications,” Price explains. “It is important to work with practitioners that have specialized training in the field.”

“I am fortunate to be able to work with Dr. Joel Young and RCBM, a top-notch behavioral health center with skilled, supportive and hard-working professionals,” Price says.

Nutrition for autoimmune disease

A poor ratio of omega-3 fatty acids to omega-6 fatty acids can increase your risk of heart disease, cancer, immune and inflammatory disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis. This could explain why individuals with autoimmune conditions in the rheumatoid family such as lupus, fibromyalgia, scleroderma, arthritis and multiple sclerosis fare better on a vegetarian diet as it provides a higher ratio of omega-3 fatty acids which aid in improving joint pain.

Scleroderma and Polymyositis

Up until the Spring of 1988, I considered myself phenomenally healthy. I ran three to five miles daily, bench pressed half my weight, lead an active social life and was budding into my career as a dietitian. My health, however, took a turn for the worst at age 27 when “strange things” started happening to my body. I remember going from “good” to “bad” in a matter of 24 hours.
