Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Bulimia is a mental disorder characterized by the behavior of not eating for days or eating little or eating a lot after that food is released again by vomiting it. This behavior is caused by wrong thinking in sufferers, where there is a fear that they will experience fat. This type of mental disorder is closely related to stress and heredity. Usually also experienced by models and athletes due to the demands of the profession. Often experienced by adolescents due to social demands. This disease can be fatal if left untreated.
This disorder can certainly be cured. However, it requires full awareness of the sufferer. First, awareness of negative thoughts about "eating" is needed. His thinking must be changed to positive that "the human body needs food in order to produce energy to carry out daily activities". Eating will increase strength and immune system so that you can avoid any disease. After changing negative thought patterns to positive, sufferers must have a strong determination to be able to fight negative thoughts. Then followed by changes in behavior. In undergoing this therapy, you should consult with a psychiatrist, so that the doctor can guide the therapy being undertaken and provide the necessary drug therapy.
All symptoms of pain in the body that you experience are due to instability of the body that does not get energy intake. Like amenorrhea or not menstruation. These symptoms will improve if you meet the body's nutritional needs.
Thus hopefully useful.
