Diseases Anorexia Nervosa

Anorexia Nervosa

Anorexia nervosa is an extremely serious disorder and is much more complicated than a loss of appetite. It indicates a physiological dislike to food. The disorder generally occurs in adolescent boys and girls who have a fear of becoming fat and hold a distorted impression of their own body image. Anorexia Nervosa is characterized by quick loss of weight and inevitably leads to body weakness and general indifference. The people suffering from this condition consider themselves to be fat, no matter what their real weight is. This becomes an obsession and is similar to an addiction to a drug. For individuals with anorexia, it's really true that one can never be too thin. Despite being dangerously underweight, anorexics see a fat individual when they look in the mirror. What they don't see is the tremendous physical and emotional damage that self starvation inflicts, so they continue to diet, fast purge and over exercise.

Causes of Aneroxia Nervosa
There are several causes that lead to this condition, such as :

Hereditary Factors
This condition occurs eight times more frequently in individuals who have relatives with the disorder. This condition occurs more often in families with a history of depression or alcohol abuse.

Family and Social Pressures
Other than the cultural pressure to be thin, there are other family and social pressures that can contribute to anorexia. This includes participation in an activity that requires thinness, such as gymnastics, ballet or modeling. It also includes having parents who are overly controlling, put a lot of emphasis on looks, diet or criticize their children's bodies and appearance.

Life events full of Stress
Such as the beginning of puberty, a break up or going away to school can also trigger anorexia.

Childhood Abuse 
Childhood abuse or traumas are often the causes of this condition. While not all victims of childhood abuse become anorexic, a large number of anorexics were abused as children. There is, however, a correlation between the two.

Signs and Symptoms
The following signs might be seen due to starvation and weight control methods:

• Fatigue, constipation or diarrhea
• hand injuries from inducing vomiting
• menstrual periods stop or puberty is delayed
• decayed teeth from stomach acid
• yellowing of skin, kidney stones or depression

Homeopathy for Anorexia Nervosa
Anorexia nervosa has been treated by homeopathy. Anorexia needs detailed specific prescribing of the appropriate homeopathic remedy. Trial and error or shotgun prescribing doesn't work and thus we don't recommend self medication. In fact self meditation will complicate the overall symptom picture. Homeopathy has been effective for years in curing other fatal diseases and anorexia nervosa is no exception.
