Bulimia Treatment – What You Need to Know

Posted Mar 15 2013 8:44am

My granddad who is now gone was always a source of inspiration to me. He was one of those men who lived out every day of his life with a sense of surety and toughness that only men in that era are capable of.

For the little time that I able to spend time with him, he spoke of hard times as a refugee having to deal with hunger for the lack of money.

He also said that hunger doesn't necessarily kill you as much as overeating, and while that didn't register as a little boy (can you blame me?), it sure does ring a bell in these times.

Yes, we live in times where people are in need of bulimia treatment – a condition that people belonging to a prior generation just cannot relate to, and for good reason too.

But that doesn't mean bulimia, as a condition, should not be treated even if these supermodels or female celebrities do take it up a notch or two.

And in an effort not to judge, let's understand what bulimia is.

What is Bulimia?

Known as bulimia nervosa, the condition usually involves overeating or binging in secret and after which, in feeling guilty about overindulging, the individual uses methods such as using too many laxatives, diuretics or enemas or the act of vomiting in order to get rid of the food that they've eaten.

If you don't know this already, this condition is more common among women rather then men.

And which should also tell you that the act of purging or vomiting is all in the effort to control weight gain or at least, prevent it from occurring in the first place. These women are also obsessed about staying in shape and which is why the act purging is due to feeling disgusted or guilty of not being able to watch what they eat.

In most cases, most patients of this eating disorder consider themselves to be overweight when they actually aren't.

It also begs the question: Should we seek professional medical help for this condition?

Of course, yes, as in some cases some patients are afflicted with anorexia nervosa, which should be treated at all costs.

With that said, let's cover bulimia treatment , and where you can find help for this disorder.
