Binge and Purging

Eating disorders have very deep roots and can be very difficult to treat with traditional approaches.  Binge and purging is about much more than just eating because it’s good, then feeling too full.  The psychology behind eating disorders is deeply embedded in a person’s psychological make up, and in the very way in which they view themselves.  Long time suffers of bulimia nervosa can have a very difficult time changing their destructive, dangerous behaviors.

Binge and purging also goes behind the mind.  When a person forces themselves to vomit, it is very stressful for the structures of the esophagus.  Years of bulimia nervosa can damage the esophagus, as well as other structures in the upper digestive system.  Flooding the mouth repeatedly with stomach acid erodes the enamel of the teeth, causing tooth decay.  Also, binge and purging can lead to loss of bone density, heart damage, kidney damage, or even death. 

Being aware of these facts are not enough to help the sufferer of bulimia nervosa abandon their dangerous behaviors. This is where holistic wellness, with its ability to view the entire person, physical, mental, spiritual and emotional, can offer the greatest chance of health and healing.  Natural health products to restore balance to damaged systems, as well as to increase a person’s sense of well-being, can be deeply healing for long time sufferers.  A person with an eating disorder is ill on many levels, and only through compassionately (and patiently) healing the underlying cause can one find relief from binge and purging behaviors.
