Eating disorders are becoming more and more common due, it is thought to a combination of genetics, family dynamics, psychological trauma in childhood and the modern day ideal of what makes a beautiful body.
The consequences of eating disorders range from mild disruption of daily functioning to total disability and death. The longer an eating disorder is left untreated, the higher the risk of permanent damage to various organs within the body.
The outward acts of binge eating, purging, excessive exercising or the restriction of food intake are often coping mechanisms to control internal conflict and stress.
The good news is that eating disorders are treatable.
The most important and often the most difficult step is to acknowledge the existence of an eating disorder. Eating disorders are often denied and kept secret. By the time they become obvious, the daily life of the sufferer has become intolerable and many health complications may have already set in.
There is no definitive, standard eating disorders treatment. Each individual presents a unique mix of problems and experiences, each of which needs careful attention.
