Treatment for Eating Disorders
Eating disorders are very serious conditions that can result in serious harm or even death, if left untreated. Eating disorders are not prejudiced to who they can affect, but women have significantly higher chances of developing them than men.
Types of Eating Disorders
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, there are different types of eating disorders, and they often develop under various circumstances. Eating disorder types include anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge-eating disorder.
In some cases, eating disorders can co-exist in an individual. For example, a person might suffer from both anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa. As time goes on, new eating disorders and conditions are being found.
How Are Eating Disorders Often Treated?
The primary goal when treating eating disorders is to stabilize people’s weight, re-introduce them to proper nutritional habits, help them stop excessively exercising, and stop purging or binging behavior.
Traditional techniques for eating disorders include:
- Nutritional counseling
- Medical monitoring and care
- Individual, family, or group psychotherapy
- Medication (these include anti-depressants)
Unfortunately, traditional methods frequently don’t work. Perhaps you have experienced this yourself. You’ve tried for years to deal with your eating disorder but nothing has worked. Perhaps you believe nothing will help you.
