Anorexia & Bulimia
Anorexia is the popular term for anorexia nervosa. This term originates from the Greek words “an”, meaning deprivation or lack of, and “orexis”, meaning appetite. The combination of the words generally means a lack of desire to eat. Typical sufferers of anorexia nervosa show signs of low body weight with an accompanying fear of gaining weight. Even when grossly underweight, many sufferers of anorexia nervosa still consider themselves “fat”. In order to control their body weight, anorexics will starve themselves, purge after eating, or even resort to diuretic drugs. All of these self controls are very dangerous and life threatening. Without help, a person suffering from anorexia may develop heart and cardiovascular system problems, or an impaired immune system, all of which can lead to death.
Bulimia is the commonly used term for bulimia nervosa. Bulimia, like anorexia, is an eating disorder triggered by a psychological condition with behavioral symptoms including binge eating followed by self-induced vomiting. Psychological symptoms include depression, guilt and self-condemnation. In addition to vomiting, individuals suffering from bulimia may also use laxatives, enemas and even fasting to control their body weight. In an ironic twist, most bulimia sufferers are young women of normal weight.
Eating disorders are described as a compulsion to either eat or not to eat in a manner that disrupts normal physical and emotional health. Eating may either be excessive or limiting, with over-eating, accompanied by purging on the one hand, and self-starvation on the other hand. There are a number of classified eating disorders, but the most common include anorexia nervosa,bulimia nervosa, and binge eating. Each of these three main eating disorders can have severe immediate health issues, and more importantly, all three can lead to long-term health problems and death.
Whether a person is suffering from anorexia, bulimia or binge eating, all have serious and immediate consequences. If you are reading this, and what you have read describes you or a loved one, you must understand that this is a serious problem. You cannot heal yourself. You need professional help, the kind of help available to you here at Center for Change. We know what you are going through, and we know how to help you. It is not easy, and there is no quick fix. But you can get your health back. Please, for your sake, or for the sake of your loved one, call Center for Change today at 1-888-224-8250. We have trained and caring professionals standing by to take your call.
Like anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa, binge eating is one of the three most prevalent eating disorders in our society today. Binge eating is characterized as compulsive overeating. Binge eaters, unlike the individuals diagnosed with bulimia, do not try to purge their system after bingeing. They will typically binge in private, when no one is around. They will eat until they can actually become sick from overeating. These episodes are accompanied with feelings of shame and disgust. Sometimes this bingeing is done to fill an emotional void, and thus by overeating to somehow become satisfied. This emotional eating is typically a coping mechanism for depression, anxiety and stress, not unlike the way in which drug addicts cope through the use of drugs.
As you can see, binge eating is an emotional disorder, that left untreated, may result in severe health problems and death. If this discussion on binge eating sounds familiar to you, please seek help immediately. Your life and health depends on it. Here at Center for Change, we have medical doctors and psychiatrists that specialize in treating binge eating and other eating disorders. We have a beautiful and home-like environment that will wrap you in love. Healing and help is just a phone call away. Call us today at 1-888-224-8250.
