Eating Disorders - A Brief Explanation
Eating disorders, such as anorexia, binge eating, and bulimia, are significant psychological illnesses. These illnesses manifest in abnormal eating habits, such as insufficient or excessive food intake.
Eating disorders often involve extreme emotions, attitudes, and behaviors, including a distorted vision about body weight and shape.
Left untreated, individuals with eating disorders can suffer both physical and mental deterioration. This manifests in denial, self-harming behavior, and life-threatening health consequences.
Eating disorders are very similar to substance abuse and alcoholism. These two addictions may even occur with an eating disorder.
As with all addictions, the eating disorder is not the problem. For those who suffer with disordered eating, it is the solution.
The problem is one's inability to handle uncomfortable feelings or situations. Addicted people use their drug of choice (in this case, controlling the amount of food consumed) to minimize or make their problem go away altogether. In controlling the amount of food consumed, individuals convince themselves they have control over their lives.
Eating Disorders - An Urgent Problem
While many eating disorders seem to affect adolescent women than any other age group, individuals of all ages and both genders can and do develop eating disorders. Recent studies reveal that over 25 million people in the U.S. suffer from some type of disordered eating.
It is crucial that the person concerned get help. Deciding to reach out for help in planning and performing an eating disorder intervention may save more than one life. Just like other addictions, an eating disorder is a family disease. Eating disorders are complicated. They are progressive diseases that only intensify without proper treatment. The symptoms can increase to the point of hospitalization and death.
