#Bulimia: Understanding #Bulimic Deficiencies and Treatment. #Wellness
Puberty and adolescence are particularly serious times for under-
eating as the body is still growing. Throughout this critical period of time, rapidly developing bodies already call for at least 2,500 highquality calories per day, all the same many girls, if not most, at this age attempt to limit themselves to fewer than 1,000 calories every day, and frequently those are junk-food calories.
This starvation dieting may quickly develop into compulsive eating, bulimia, and anorexia. As a matter of fact, I recently heard of two 14-year-old anorectic girls who’s eating disorders had commenced after their very first diets.
What Could Be Missing
As with anorexia, bulimia is rooted in the diet mindset.
Joyce’s story is an unhappily typical one. A 24-year-old knockout with a wellproportioned and muscular body, Joyce found herself close to the upper weight boundary for her height. (Muscle is more gravid than fat.) She had never dieted in her life, but once she attended flight attendant training, she observed that most of the other trainees were steady dieters. At the training, which served fast food, she didn't get her common nutritious food or her common exercise. She found herself putting on a little weight.
Concerned that she may go over the weight limitation, she started skipping over meals. Soon her starving had turned to binging and purging. By the time she left the lessons, only 2 months later, she had acquired unbearable sweet cravings and was binging and purging 3 to 5 times per day. I'm happy to say that, by utilizing supplements and following additional treatment, many bulimic women like Joyce have been able to return to their original weight and health.
How come is it so easy to become a bulimic? One reason is that both binging and vomiting may trigger waves of the powerful brain chemicals - the endorphins. The release of these organic heroin-like brain chemicals helps build the powerful obsessions that bulimics are helpless to battle. Once we develop false thoughts about what we
"ought to" weigh and start dieting, we open up ourselves up to the first step of developing an eating disorder, just as Joyce did.
A rising number of woman - and men - are pressured by the dieting mindset into the danger zone of anorexia. They've literally lost their appetites as well as weight. No more secured by healthy rebound food cravings, they never get to the point where they "simply must have a cheeseburger." Once very low-calorie dieting gets to be a way of life, so does the line of descent through the layers of starvation.
A couple of months into her first-ever diet, fourteen -year-old Casey developed most of the symptoms of matured anorexia. She was chronically sick with colds and flu, lost her menstruation, and was too feeble to exercise. She stopped going out with her acquaintances and simply stayed at home. She formulated radical mood swings that included temper, hysteria, and insomnia. Soon it got simple for her to starve: an apple may last her all day.
Casey’s symptoms are classic signs of malnutrition. In the stockades,
the starving captives made little amounts of food last all day, as well.
How do the starved survive? How do anorexics endure working out
for hours every day in the gymnasium, like the Nazi's slave workers?
Many of the anorexics that I've seen with in reality get high on starving. Anorexia sparks off the same sort of mighty high that opiates like heroin give to substance abusers. How do we know? When anorexics are presented drugs that preclude opiates from affecting them, they enter into a sudden withdrawal, even as heroin users do. Their highs are interrupted.
It turns out that anorexic starvation, like bulimic regurgitation and
binging, is a traumatic experience that may stimulate a deep survival
of the fittest mechanism; the release of endorphins, the mighty,
natural drug like chemicals that allow us to go through pleasure. They
likewise kill pain and ease tension. If your body has gotten to be
addicted to these organic opiates and you go back to normal healthy
eating, you'll miss the endorphin highs. Like lab monkeys who pull the level that provides them heroin in preference to food and drink till they die, an anorexic will ferociously defend her refusal to eat for potent biochemical reasons. Bulimics binge and turn away keeping food down with a similar ferocity for the same reasons. This obsessional behavior is really caused by nutritional deficiencies -which, thankfully, we today know how to address.
