Answer 1
January, 2021

Anorexia and bulimia are both addictions, they occur when there is too much anxiety and your brain cannot cope with it. Therefore, the body needs them as a defense mechanism against mental overload. That is why the organism "does not want" to get rid of these dependencies. Plus anorexia and bulimia are the consequences:

  • self-loathing
  • low self-esteem,
  • low sensitivity of your body,
  • muscle tension,
  • difficulty expressing aggression
  • a great sense of shame and guilt.

From the point of view of the causes of anorexia and bulimia - the consequences of children's mental trauma of rejection, control, devaluation.

Accordingly, if you get rid of one addiction with the help of "willpower", that is ... simply by blocking it, then the body begins to look for other ways to relieve tension and finds them, because there are no skills for environmentally friendly release of stress (the roots of this go back to childhood), then the body again finds some kind of addiction.

To treat these diseases, and not to treat symptoms, it is necessary to work on increasing self-esteem and acceptance of yourself, your body and reduced anxiety. This work leads to recovery without relapses and withdrawal to other addictions.

Yes, it is possible. Very often in clinical practice, we see how juvenile anorexia is replaced by bulimia at an older age.

The modern approach to the treatment of eating disorders is transdiagnostic, that is, eating disorders are understood as one disorder that takes on different forms and manifests itself in different symptoms.

With bulimia and anorexia, the risk of recurrence is very high. See a specialist on time to help you prevent a relapse.

Answer 3

Western experts are increasingly talking about the combined disorder - bulimorexia. Indeed, bulimia and anorexia often go in the same team. A woman suffering from anorexia can go into bulimia when her condition improves, and if her life situation worsens, she can break into anorexia. The best way to avoid relapse is to get psychotherapy.
