Understanding Anorexia Behavior:

The behaviour associated with Anorexia can serve as a temporary escape from difficult emotions, whether positive or negative, depending on the individual. Recognising Anorexia as a problem can be challenging, especially if it has not yet caused significant consequences. It is important to evaluate the impact of Anorexia on your life, considering potential long-term costs to yourself and others. Seeking input from loved ones and taking their concerns seriously can be a crucial step in acknowledging and addressing the impact of Anorexia on your well-being.
Inpatient rehab or specialised counselling services offer a highly structured approach to overcoming Anorexia issues, particularly beneficial for severe cases. This structured setting helps individuals find stability, learn to manage triggers, maintain ongoing recovery and navigate potential relapses.

How is Anorexia Treated?

Anorexia treatment involves a multi-faceted approach that includes both physical and psychological interventions. For a loved one or family member of someone with Anorexia, it is important to provide emotional support and encourage them to seek help. Dealing with denial may require gentle and persistent communication to help the individual recognise the seriousness of their condition. Finding the best treatment services for Anorexia involves researching different options and consulting with healthcare professionals to determine the most appropriate care plan. Admission into Anorexia professional counselling is often the first step in treatment, where individualised therapy and support are provided. An Anorexia treatment plan is designed based on the individual’s specific needs, which may include nutritional counselling, therapy and medication. Aftercare and therapy are essential components of recovery to prevent relapse and promote long-term well-being.

How is Anorexia Addiction Diagnosed?

Anorexia in the context of destructive behaviour is diagnosed through various methods in Anorexia rehab. This includes diagnosing addiction, screening at-risk individuals, detailed assessments of Anorexia use, medical and psychiatric evaluations and applying diagnostic criteria from manuals like DSM-5 or ICD-10. The process involves assessing functioning, risk factors, readiness for change and creating a personalised treatment plan. Continuous monitoring and follow-up support are essential components of Anorexia treatment.

Does My Partner/Loved One Have an Anorexia Problem?

Identifying signs of anorexia addiction in a loved one can be crucial for early intervention and support. Look for noticeable behavioural and physical changes such as extreme weight loss, an obsession with calorie counting and restrictive eating, avoiding social situations involving food, constant dissatisfaction with body image and excessive exercise. Emotional indicators include a preoccupation with food, fear of gaining weight, irritability or mood swings and withdrawing from friends and activities. It is important to approach the situation with empathy and compassion, as anorexia is a complex mental health issue. Seek professional help, encourage open communication and provide a safe space for your loved one to express their thoughts and feelings. Remember, early detection and intervention can greatly improve their chances of recovery from this challenging and potentially life-threatening problem.

What To Do Next?

Dealing with a loved one’s Anorexia can exert significant strain on the family and relationships involved. The complex dynamics of this disorder often give rise to feelings of codependency, where family members may overly rely on the person with Anorexia or feel responsible for their actions. Additionally, enabling behaviors such as accommodating their disordered eating habits can inadvertently perpetuate the problem. These intricate emotions, intertwined with concerns for the individual’s well-being, require the guidance and expertise of a professional Anorexia counsellor. Seeking the help of a specialist in the field can assist in navigating this challenging situation more effectively, promoting support and understanding within the family unit.

Regular counselling sessions are essential for ongoing communication and guidance during the recovery process. Anorexia therapy provides a supportive environment for open dialogue, allowing individuals to share challenges and work towards solutions. Therapists help individuals explore underlying factors contributing to their behaviour, such as social, familial or professional stressors, leading to a deeper understanding of oneself and strategies for maintaining overall health in recovery.

What is Anorexia?

Anorexia or Anorexia Nervosa as it is clinically known is a condition that presents itself through a number of different characteristics but most notably the sufferer’s obsessive thoughts about gaining weight and their refusal, despite the negative consequences involved to maintain a healthy body weight.

This is put down to a cognitive bias which is a deviation in judgment that occurs in particular situations such as eating disorders.

Signs, Symptoms and Risks of Anorexia

There are numerous signs and symptoms that are associated with anorexia, the most common are as follows:

  • Unexplainable and rapid weight loss
  • An obsessive interest in food and sometimes cooking – for example although someone suffering from anorexia may go out of their way to hold elaborate dinner parties they will not eat the food they meticulously prepared themselves.
  • Studying calories and information printed on packets of food, obsessively exercising and dieting even though they are below their ideal body weight
  • Downy fine hair called Languo can grow on the suffers face and body, they may become insular and depressed  choosing to spend more  time alone.
  • Frequently people suffering from Anorexia purge , either by taking laxatives or by self inducing vomiting, not only does this have a detrimental effect on the gut and oesophagus but on the teeth too, the frequent contact with stomach acid means the enamel on the tooth’s surface is eaten away at a far quicker rate than would normally be seen.
  • Feeling cold or turning up the heating when everyone else is fine is another symptom of anorexia; this is due to poor circulation which lowers the blood pressure and body temperature. Sufferers may wear big baggy jumpers and shirts to hide their body, which they often perceive as unattractive no matter how thin they become.

Treatment for Anorexia

Once there has been a professional diagnosis of Anorexia treatment can begin. Addiction treatment for anorexia aims to help the patient recover by addressing the three presiding factors of the illness.

These are helping the patient return to a healthy weight, helping the patient remain at their ideal healthy weight by treating any underlying psychological issues they have and finally eliminating any of the factors that were responsible for the eating disorder occurring in the first place.

A qualified addiction counsellor is the best person to seek advice from in the first instance. If you or a loved one is suffering from anorexia, remember recovery is achievable and the first step is just a call away.
