Eating Disturbances – Anorexia and Bulimia

Eating disturbances are serious mental illnesses  defined by abnormal eating habits that negatively affect people, causing the highest mortality rate of any mental illness, which is why treatment is often so critical. They frequently coexist with other mental illnesses such as depression, substance abuse, or anxiety disorders.

The media can be a culprit for generating images that falsify the reality of human bodies. This behaviour’s society drives an individual to idealize the representation of body perfection. As scientists unfold the blueprint of our genetic make-up, it is evident that both environment and genetics play an integral role in the formation of body image.

Nowadays, depression and discouragement resulting from the numerous and lasting difficulties of daily life, are predisposing causes of somatic diseases due to the state of weakness and lack of energy of the body to react against the environment. In this category are many agents, being these physical, moral, or social, capable of changing the body and affect its physical health, destroying the physical balance of the human being.

Bad eating behavior may include inadequate or excessive food intake which can ultimately damage an individual’s well-being. They are associated with a wide range of adverse psychological, physical, and social consequences. Regardless of the age of people, at the time the eating disorder begins, there can often be a considerable period of time between onset and the time of first treatment.

Eating disorders are associated with significant physical complications and increased mortality. The mortality rate for people with eating disturbances is the highest of all psychiatric illnesses, and over 12 times higher than that for people without such problems. Through these situations, are followed by a conduct that compensates for the overeating such as forced vomiting, excessive use of laxatives or diuretics, fasting, excessive exercise, or a combination of these behaviors.

In addressing the many medical complications of an eating disorder, the more urgent concerns typically take priority, such as undernourishment or an unstable heartbeat. However, some of the health consequences related to eating disorders affect the individual in the long term, even if they aren’t more apparent or obvious. Bone loss, or osteoporosis, is a silent but debilitating condition that commonly impacts people with eating disorders, such as anorexia.

Through eating disturbances treatment, those with anorexia, bulimia or binge eating disorder are given the tools and skills to get well. These strategies are designed to help them cope with uncomfortable feelings or distress; they are intended to replace the need for the eating disorder and prevent a relapse.

Furthermore, people may see a number of health professionals before receiving a correct diagnosis. This delay is likely to negatively influence the duration of the eating disorder and the outcomes of treatment. Evidences show that early diagnosis and intervention can greatly reduce the duration and severity of an eating disorder. It is therefore vital to seek professional help at the earliest possible time.

People with anorexia see themselves as overweight, even when they are clearly underweight.  People with anorexia typically weigh themselves repeatedly, portion food carefully, and eat very small quantities of only certain foods. Eating, food, and weight control become an obsession. Others with bulimia have recurrent and frequent episodes of eating unusually large amounts of food and feel a lack of control over these episodes.

Unlike anorexia people with bulimia usually maintain what is considered a healthy or normal weight, while some are slightly overweight. But like those with anorexia, they often fear gaining weight, want desperately to lose weight, and are intensely unhappy with their body size and shape. Usually, bulimic behavior is done secretly because it is often accompanied by feelings of disgust or shame. The binge eating and purging cycle can happen anywhere from several times a week to many times a day.

Some signs and symptoms of  eating disturbances are: chronic dieting despite being hazardously underweight, constant weight fluctuations,obssessive treatment involving calories and fat contents of food , engaging in eating patterns, such as cutting food into tiny pieces, eating alone, and/or hiding food,
continued fixation with food, recipes, or cooking, depression or lethargic stage avoiding social functions, family, and friends, beins isolated and withdrawn.

Typical treatment include restoring adequate nutrition, bringing weight to a healthy level, reducing excessive exercise, and stopping binging and purging behaviors. Evidence also suggests that antidepressant medications may help for bulimia and also may be effective for treating co-occurring anxiety or depression for other eating disorders.

Our loved ones cannot be in a position to communicate effectively with us until that stabilization and maintenance have occurred. After that stabilization of eating patterns occurs, the real family work can develop. It is important to recognize that affected people needs patience from others as they continue to learn how to communicate their emotions in a healthy way.

Therapy is a fundamental piece of treatment because it affords an individual in recovery the opportunity to address and heal from traumatic life events and learn healthier coping skills and methods for expressing emotions, communicating and maintaining healthy relationships.

Researchers are finding that eating disorders are caused by a complex interaction of genetic, biological, psychological, and social factors. But many questions still need answers. Researchers are studying questions about behavior, genetics, and brain function to better understand risk factors, identify biological markers, and develop specific psychotherapies and medications that can target areas in the brain that control eating behavior. Brain imaging and genetic studies may provide clues for how each person may respond to specific treatments for these medical illnesses. Ongoing efforts also are aimed at developing and refining strategies for preventing and treating eating disorders among adolescents and adults.

In the treatment of eating disorders, the brain plays an interesting role. Often those with a disorder such as anorexia tend to experience rigidity and inflexibility in their thoughts and actions.The way they conduct their lives is often through a very black and white perspective. This is particularly evident in their perceptions of food and food consumption.

As ever said in the “Food Addiction” article, “the turn around through which people begin the healing process, starts when  they admit to get better by themselves, through the correct use of their willpower and determination, being imperative in this case, the help from family and friends.

Physical health is related to mental health because as a rule, good health and longevity are found among individuals who are calm, orderly and patient, who follow a regular pattern of life, who do not allow themselves to be overrun by the whirling of society, and who are not claimed simultaneously by a multiplicity of demands.

With the mass amount of misguided information about eating disorders, it is common for these serious illnesses to be misunderstood, oversimplified, or greatly generalized. The truth of the matter is that eating disorders are complex diseases caused by a multitude of factors. Men or women who struggle with an eating disorder have a serious mental illness with potentially life-threatening consequences.

In the rapid evolution of our society today, advances in technology have dictated the course of human interactions. The way we interface with one another is largely hinged on the capacities that have developed throughout the years. Face-to-face connections are often pushed aside for text messaging, emails, and the like.

For individuals struggling with an eating disorder spurred from pressures or dysfunctions in their family, this summer break readjustment is exacerbated. For most, home is a loving and safe environment. That’s the main reason, by which the healing power success on mental ilnesses’ treatment resides in good environment at home through a wholesome colaboration of family, thinking with elevated and healthy way, all knowing the power of good thoughts.

So, the cure happens, because people are the outcome of their thoughts, beliefs,  choices, and actions. We are what we think and the physical body reflects what is going inside. Doing so, people may exert their inner force and awake the healing power within.

    1. Hey, Daniel!

      I appreciated a lot your position on the topic. You’re quite right! Through wholesome thoughts, it’s possible for all people to keep the life healthier and more productive. Many thanks for your support! Wish you the Best,

  1. My 17 y/o daughter has been in a wheelchair all her life. We have over her life visited the Children’s Hospital regularly. It is so sad to see so many teenagers (some male), looking so thin and on drips. Some are so spoilt mentally that they shout, scream and chuck a tantrum when nurses try to encourage them to eat. Glad to have read your article and I believe it will help people. Keep up the good work. Dave

    1. Dear Dave,

      I appreciated your comments. I have to say that we all are on this Earth to fulfill the commitment we have taken over with ourselves at any moment in our lives, maybe in another dimension. The fact is that nothing happens by chance and the Natural Laws of the Universe are correct and immutable. I mean we need be courageous to move forward with our most loved ones facing the life’s problems and being grateful for having the opportunity to make things better because we all are living certain situations due to one given reason, usually unknown, but that is real. Seeing aside, other people have crossed the life along with problems many times more difficult than ours. We should know how to awaken the giant within, becoming us stronger, helping each other and living a happier and constructive life. Wish you all force and wisdom to know how to manage the circumstances going ahead.

  2. It must be hard for those who have been affected by these conditions but you are right! It is our willpower and the force from within ourselves to change that will drive us to our success in anything. Support from family is very important and is what will form that drive. It is sad that there are so many people out there, whose family members just dont think of this as a serious issue that needs to be dealt with.

    1. Hey, Reyhana!

      Unfortunately, that’s the picture we have today with families that don’t understand the power of thought. Many mental illnesses could be avoidable if the patients had this support. When people may awaken this great force they have inside, surely the outcomes should be better. Usually, mentally affected people aren’t able to struggle against what they are going through. It’s needed the immediate help from friends and family through the right use of wholesome thoughts. That’s the importance of this great partnership. We are the result of our thoughts and the environment around us. Wish you the Best,

  3. I think the movie To The Bone does a good job in dicussing a subject that needs more attention. I am glad you posts does this as well. Many parents are clueless about their teenagers eating disorders but it is so hard when everywhere you turn you are surrounded by inaccurate images of how “normal” looks. I have recently seen celebrities trying to advocate for accepting yourself as is and hopefully we will get to that point. For now though, your article shows consequences, physically, emotionally and mentally of these eating disorders. Fortunately, you also turn our attention to practical solutions if we know anyone struggling with these.

    1. Howdy, Max!

      Many thanks for your support about these ideas involving eating disturbances. Indeed, you’re quite right. In the actual days, such upheaval behaviors are given as common among people, and worse yet, many mental diseases such these could be treated early, creating wholesome habits in the patient’s lives while they still have in their lifetime, great possibilities to find the solutions required in such abnormalities. As said in the article, the media can be a culprit for generating images that falsify the reality of human bodies.
      Eating disturbances, as the most of mental illnesses, need to be faced with attention and promptitude, being the time an essential success factor. If friends, family, and medical support may actuate together to get healthy outcomes, then that will be the optimal partnership the society need to become things better for such people.

  5. Beans are an important part in terms of weight loss because it contains high fiber and protein. Adding nuts to your diet is a good way to cut calories without starving and most important is nutrient rich nuts.

    With so many benefits of beans, white bean consumption to lose weight sounds like a pretty good really go? You can skip the cooking process and the use of a simple way to present a delicious white bean.

    But if white beans really helpful in terms of weight loss or just a scam? Read on to find out…

    What is a White bean?
    White beans like red beans and useful to lose weight naturally. Phaseolus vulgaris is the technical name, which may often you look at the ingredient list for a weight loss supplement.

    What to do?
    White beans called carb blockers because it can prevent the absorption and digestion of carbohydrates. This is done by blocking alpha-amylase, an enzyme that is connected to the digestion of carbohydrates in our intestines.

    The idea is that the extract of the white bean will work on the sugar refined in the same way in your body when processing the grains and high fiber foods. It can make your body feel full longer than refined carbohydrates we consume.

    1. Dear Dr. Alex Huggies,

      I am immensely grateful to you for this valuable nutrition technical support. It is of great importance for all people who are fighting with these eating disturbances. That is a kind of specialized information very needed and appreciated for those that are suffering and having their health damaged due to the wrong way of food intake.
      The healing process in such disorders dwells in applying the right behavior in an upfront desire to overcome the wrong habits settled down during maybe many years before. It demands the presence of fresh concepts and elevated core beliefs and values people involved and their families need to learn for turning their lives for the better, through a healthy way of living with wholesome habits, including in these, the correct nourishment.
      Many times that is the main reason for which the friends, family, and medical assistance may help and contribute to alleviating the suffering of such patients.
      I got very pleased with your remarkable nourishment presentation, and I thank you so much for your precious support. I wish you success in your researches.

  6. This article really hit home for me, as my sister suffered from an eating disorder when she was in high school. It was so hard to see her suffer but as you pointed out in your article, she had a very rigid thinking process, black and white, she was skinny or she was not.
    Going and talking with a professional and learning to control her thinking with will power and determination really helped her to overcome her disorder.
    Today, she controls her negative emotions with exercise, helping others, and nutrition. I think you are so right when you say that our emotional well being affects our physical well being.

    Thank you for the reminder and great information!
    Jennie

    1. Hey, Jennie!

      I am immensely grateful for your valuable feedback! In such cases, the appropriate assistance from friends, family, and medical aid consists of a success factor to bring back the healing process. Thinking big is essential for settling down the health. Thoughts are energetic vibrations and constitute the manifestation of the universal intelligence and mind power. Many thanks for your support! Wishing you the Best,

  7. Hi,
    very interesting post. I know young people with eating disorder. I agree that the media influence such an attitude, of course, and the way of life. This is a matter of psychic problems and certainly should involve the help of a doctor and therapist.
    Best regards

    1. Hey, Maja!

      I am incredibly grateful for your valuable feedback. You’re quite right! In the patients with this kind of disorder, it is of essential importance the friend, family, and medical assistance. Affected people by themselves, are not able to overcome the oncoming difficulties in these moments. Admittedly, a healthy and wholesome environment contributes to settle down the healing process.
      Many thanks for your support! Wishing you the Best,

  9. This was a very thoughtful article. I had no idea eating more people die from eating disorders than any other mental illnesses. It is s awful that people believe what they see in the media. If we were to take a closer look at those people’s lives and what they look like without the makeup, photo editing etc then maybe we would start to love ourselves more. This article is well written and thought provoking. Great job!

    1. Hey, Davona!

      I am immensely thankful for your kind words. Nowadays people are immersed in a great disturbance, and it happens comprehensively. This website intends to present a solution by which people may enhance their lives for the better through wholesome health.

  11. This article has been an eye opener for me. I appreciate the time and effort you must have in writing this.
    Our family has been touched with anorexia, but the other eating disorders were news to me. I didn’t realize there were so many.
    I really wish I would have had this resource when our family was dealing with this. Thanks again for writing this. Maybe it will make a difference in someones life.

    1. Hey, Wendi!

      Due to the actual life’s stressing, people get submitted to many forms of mental disturbances. Eating disorders many times become an obsession, and fashion’s media contributes to worsening the picture. An effective healing process may happen through healthy thoughts and habits from family and friends, including medical support. We are the outcome of our thoughts, habits, beliefs, and actions. The physical body reflects what is going inside.

  12. Hi Made, thank you for an inspiring and very well informative article. I appreciate your last words of it, where you emphasize the importance of our thoughts and mindset. We are what we think. In this context, I would like to remind of these great words by William James (American philosopher, 1842-1910): “Human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind.” In other words, a life can be changed by the way a person thinks (cognitive restructuring).

    1. Hey, Asgeir!

      I am very grateful for your valuable feedback and kind insight! You are quite right! The best protection people may get in their lives resides in a wholesome way of thinking through active, healthy and clear thoughts. It is possible when people learn to get rid of limiting beliefs, unhappy and dangerous thoughts involving settled ideas. So doing this, it is possible to empower emotions, beliefs, and feelings through new and consistent life’s patterns. That is the way!
      Thinking means reasoning, creating images, conceiving ideas, building for the present and the future. Like sound and light, thoughts travel all over in energetic and vibratory waves which are recorded in the infinite ocean of matter filling the Universe.
      I congratulate you on your position. Feel free to keep in touch when you desire. Wishing you the Best,

  13. Hi Karl,

    I totally agree with you that the media is the culprit. My teenage daughter has been telling me about how this or that person look – slim, beautiful and etc. All these come from TV shows, Youtube videos and other social media networks. Slowly, she was eating less and less. But fortunately, she is a food lover and pretty much can’t resist the good food I am cooking at home. I think the most important part is to educate people about bulimia and anorexia. Also, the misconception portrayed – as you mentioned, falsifying the reality of human bodies.

    This is a good article which I am sure will create awareness on this issue.

    Sharon

    1. Dear Sharon!

      I am immensely grateful for your very constructive feedback! Yes, the media induces many people to change their lives for the worse. Usually, the more susceptible to the harm news and ads are young people. This situation demands constant attention of families for caring their most loved ones. Such problems can become chronic or recurrent and lead to substantial impairments in an individual’s ability of people involved, causing disarranges on their relationships with the loss of reason through negative thoughts and habits, bringing many repentances, regrets, and depression. The salutary ambiance at home, including help from family and friends, and medical assistance are of vital importance in the healing process. Slowly, the patients start replacing their limiting beliefs with other empowering ones, through the settlement of new patterns, changing their thoughts and attitudes for themselves. Indeed, the recovery is not easy; it is needed persistence and dedication. That is the way!

  14. This was a great article, and the pictures were very powerful. I have a friend who had this illness, and it was very difficult for her to go through. It’s tough to accept that there’s not a lot that friends and family can do until they accept the help themselves.

    1. Hey, Courtney!

      Many thanks for your valuable feedback and helpful insight. Usually, eating disorders are hard to face due to the implications they bring to the patient’s family and people closer. The healing process has well settled when the affected people have learned how to develop and apply for themselves good and healthy thoughts during the treatment’s period. It is also applicable for the case fitting medical assistance and constructive ambiance at home. Through consistent and wholesome way of thinking, the patient’s recovery comes up sooner, because people are the result of their thoughts, habits, and beliefs. That’s the better way!
      Keep in touch when you desire. Wish you the Best!

  15. Thank you for such an informative article, it’s sad that people living with those struggling with eating disorders may not know how to help them. Some people think anorexia can easily be cured by forcing them to eat more, so I like that you mention that they must be patient.

    1. Dear Neli!

      You are quite right! The healing process for eating disorders such as it happens with all mental illnesses takes some time. That is the main reason by which during the treatment it is of paramount importance the involvement of family, friends and proper medical assistance. The whole ambiance at home is fundamental to the patient’s recovery, through healthy and salutary thoughts, because people are the outcome of their ideas, beliefs, habits, and attitudes.

  16. I spent over an hour reading the articles on your website. I found each and every one of them to be very informative. I have some first hand experience with some of the mental illnesses you have written about and found your information to be truthful.
    Thank you for your website. The subjects mentioned are not often talked about. We need more people like you to get this information out there.

    1. Dear Sherri,

      I am immensely grateful for your valuable feedback and helpful insight. Yes, you are quite right! People need to learn how to develop the high power they have within. When it happens, people are capable of setting in motion new ideas and more productive directives for their lives. Taking action is the mean point to get it done through healthy and constructive thoughts. People are what they think!

  17. I have some experience how dramatic eating disorders can disrupt a person’s life and in severe cases end their life as well, I have a very close friend who is Anorexic and has abused her body to the point her organs have are not working properly. She is only in her 40’s, but she appears to be much older in age if you ever seen her.

    Great post
    Jeff

    1. Hey, Jeff!

      I am very grateful for your valuable and constructive feedback. Usually, eating disturbances must be treated as a mental illness in which the patients don’t perceive what is going on with themselves, due to their sensibility’s alterations, sometimes generating an irreversible process. That is the main reason by which in such cases it is of capital importance the attendance of friends and family, including many times appropriate medical assistance. A whole ambiance at home is advisable for the patient’s recovery. People involved in the process should learn how to develop high, salutary and clear thoughts, so contributing to the effectivity of the healing power. It happens because people are the outcome of their ideas, beliefs, attitudes, and choices. People are what they think! Commonly, it is not easy to do; it is needed discipline and persistence from family to get success in the treatment of their most loved ones. Taking care enough, little by little, the health comes back.

  18. This is such a wonderful post. I knew two girls that were my daughters friends in jr high school that were 12 when they first started showing signs. One was admitted to hospital in bad shape by 13. Sadly at the time our Childrens Hospital did not have a program for them to start in until the age of 14. Their home life was a mess and my heart hurt for them. They finally reached the age of admittance to the program and have been healthy and happy since!

    1. Great, Sydney!

      I am immensely grateful for your valuable feedback and helpful insight. Unfortunately, the resources to the retrieval process are not always available for affected people and their families. To the healing process’ correct appliance, usually is of capital importance the support of friends and people around, with the application of a positive and constructive recovery through healthy and wholesome habits and good ambiance at home. In such process, is given great importance to the thoughts and beliefs being the patients learned how to empower better feelings and attitudes, as a natural condition to have their health back, even when not submitted by proper medical assistance. Such procedure is highly effective, because when people have conviction about anything, naturally they will ignore and defend their ideas against any contradictory evidence to their beliefs. Of course, it is not an easy task. It demands hard endeavors from families, once the patients don’t perceive what is occurring with them. Happily, in this present case, the cure had come!

    I’ve never understood what they were going through until reading this post.

    Thank you for so much insight.

    1. Dear Aria,

      I am very grateful for your valuable feedback and helpful insight. Indeed, many people don’t know what’s going on with those affected by eating disorders. Such disturbances need to be treated as mental illnesses. Commonly the healing process should be more natural for the patients and their families if some basic and healthy principles were available for them. That is the purpose of this website.

  20. Very sad, indeed. Thank you for posting this very educating information. Many people do not realize what this is all about. I was anorexic at one time, but it was not because I saw myself as fat. It was something else altogether that I was struggling with, and I just could not eat. It all boils down to getting your mind right, which is what my web site is about, as well. (Only for the opposite of these eating disorders). Many people do not know how to get their minds right to keep from overeating and sabotaging their weight-loss efforts. This is a brilliantly orchestrated article. Kudos to the author!

    1. Dear Kelly Kares,

      I got immensely grateful for your valuable feedback and helpful insight. You are quite right! Presently, the main problem people have to face rightly the eating disorders consists in the lack of knowledge of the high power they have within. Through wholesome thoughts and clear mindset, it is possible for people and their families to turn their lives around for the better, bringing the health back; in fact, it is profoundly true, because people are the outcome of their thoughts, beliefs, attitudes, habits, and choices. People, when submitted to such mental disturbances, do not have the sense about what is going on with themselves. Due to this, it is of capital importance the help from family and friends during the patient’s recovery, besides good ambiance at home and proper medical assistance if needed.

  21. I know the devastation of bulimia as one of my friends sister suffers from this. It can be harrowing for the parents as they see their child suffering. They have to come out of that mode of thinking themselves, it is very much like an alcoholic you have to come to the realization that you need to change I feel sorry for families that have a dear one suffering from this. Good article and timely reminder for us all.

    1. Hey, Gus!

      Many thanks for your valuable feedback. Indeed, the destruction caused by eating disorders is very depressing. Usually, people affected do not notice what is going on within themselves. The friends and family’ support is of supreme importance in detecting the disturbance, being needed rigid discipline and persistence to get success on the treatment. It consists in teaching the patients how to cultivate healthy and whole thoughts, changing their beliefs and attitudes. It is essential a salutary ambiance at home and proper medical assistance if needed. It is not easy and takes time, but it is possible!

  22. This article as well as the other posts that you have here are all topics that I cover with my high school health students. They are important to talk about and make young people aware of. So often they only think of the physical aspect of health and don’t realize the mental/emotional part of their actions, must less the cause of them. I appreciate the information that you have shared and look forward to reading more.

    Keri

    1. Dear Keri,

      I got very pleased with your kind comments. Commonly, young people are the great victims of many kinds of mental illnesses, mainly those resultants of drug addiction. Nowadays, young people are each time more involved with drugs, in a crescent way. The physical body has been poisoned by invasive and aggressive substances, provoking among people the most dangerous and butcher feelings’ hallucination. In the vast majority of mental disorders, there is the presence of drug consumption; and it happens in a worldwide way. The lack of understanding and knowledge about the great power people have within has been creating along the time many unhappy people, becoming them sick and invalid, dragging with themselves their families for an underworld without any hope for bringing back the health, honor and moral principles. In such people, their mindsets are poor and scabrous.
      More than never people need to awaken the giant within, like says Tony Robbins. These people do not know how to set goals to turn their lives around for the better, because they are in such way quite brutalized due to their wrong way of thinking that they do not know how to start or how to do to change and move their lives forward. It is needed to take action for things start getting better.
      That is the capital reason by which the friends and family of patients involved with such mental disarrange, need to support them, in a way that they may be learned to change their thoughts, beliefs, habits, choices, and feelings. Of course, it is a hard task, being needed great dose of persistence and discipline during the period of treatment. However, it is not impossible. It is a matter of knowledge and attitude, taking açtion for getting success.
      I appreciated your stand. Feel free to keep in touch when you desire. Wish you the Best!

  23. Great post, i’m glad you are putting this out there Karl. This is a real issue facing lots of people. They need the support of friends and family because their struggle is real. As I was reading your post I remember the famous singer Karen Carpenter who actually died as a result of this problem and what a loss that was. The whole world was impacted by that.

    1. Hey, David!

      In fact, the Carpenters’episode was too sad! People, when submitted by any kind of mental disorders, do not have the perception about what is happening within themselves; they do not reason clearly. It is of capital importance the friends and family’s support to get success on the patient’s recovery. Through wholesome discipline, healthy thoughts, the good ambiance at home, and proper medical assistance, things start getting better. However, the treatment is not easy; it demands persistence and strong control to get success.
      Many thanks for your support! Feel free to keep in touch when you desire. Wish you the Best!

The healing is not easy, but with persistence and discipline, it is reached.
