morning when you wake up, you grab a cup of coffee, a muffin,
and it's off to work. This is the regular routine of many of Americans
as they rush to work every morning. Then at lunch a fast food
meal is eaten, a snack around 2:00-3:00 p.m. and it's off from
work at 5:00 p.m. with a hankering for the dinner meal. This dinner
can be another fast food run or a sit down dinner at a restaurant.
There are those who love to put on their chef hats after work
and fix a sit down dinner which is also a form of therapeutic
wind down for them. If you think about it, food is an integral
part of our lives and we consistently incorporate it into our
daily lives in some form or the other. People who are bulimic
have an abnormal obsessive connection to food. They live to eat
instead of eating to live. Bulimia nervosa treatment can be a
complex issue for those who are bulimics. Food is not like cigarettes;
you just cannot go cold turkey and quit eating. You need food
to live. There are different methods to treat bulimia. We will
discuss some of those methods in this article.
Psychiatrists are used to treat bulimia by delving into the minds
of the bulimic and finding out why they feel the way they feel
about food and what food means to them. The goal is to return
the mind to a healthy mindset when it concerns food. Food in the
mind of bulimic is a source of shame and also a source of satisfaction.
It is a complex web of distorted feelings that must be unwound
Doctors are also an important part of the treatment of the bulimic.
Doctors are able to document height, weight, and lab results to
properly track the progress of the patient and with this information,
the other medical professionals treating the patient can make
their decisions based on this information. Doctors can also be
a form of support for the patient and help boost morale and a
sense of comfort while the patient is going through the process
Dieticians are an important part of the treatment chain and overall
success cannot be had without the dietician in this treatment
plan. Learning how to cook, recognize a regular portion and how
to eat for nutrition are all important to long-term success. If
a patient has this group medical professionals available during
treatment, their odds of being a success are greatly increased.
