Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa

Anorexia Nervosa is an eating disorder that is often associated with excessive weight loss and a distortion of the body image. People who suffer from Anorexia often feel they are overweight when in fact they are grossly underweight. The distorted body image results to an obsessive desire to be thin and relentless dieting and fitness regimens. More than a physiological disorder, Anorexia Nervosa involves psychological, neurobiological and sociological components.

People with Anorexia Nervosa often maintain less than 85% of their ideal body weight and are in a state of denial when it comes to the seriousness of their physical condition. They will claim the lack of hunger for their frail bodies and will continue to try to lose weight. Some people in really bad conditions will resist treatment and will continue to exercise excessively. Anorexia Nervosa, when untreated, may result to clinical depression and low self-esteem. Worse, the condition can lead to serious physical diseases due to the lack of essential nutrients the body needs to function properly and the deterioration of the internal organs brought about by malnutrition, exhaustion and physical abuse. Extreme cases have resulted in vital body systems shutting down leading to death.

Because people suffering from anorexia may be suffering from some form of psychological or neurobiological imbalance, mere feeding does not cure the Anorectic. The client must undergo medical diagnosis to completely understand the factors that lead to the disease.
