When you hear the term eating disorder whom does It remind you of? Who do YOU know that has this? I know many girls have a friend or have heard of that takes over our beliefs and goes against our own body but are to embarrassed to say something and ask for help.
Eating disorder is a term that is used to explain and person that has an irregular eating habit. It can involve insufficient or excessive food intake and can affect their physical and mental health. There are two different types of eating disorders that are cost known by people; Bulimia and anorexia nervous. Bulimia nervous is a serious eating disorder that can be deadly if left untreated. People who have bulimia nervous regularly consume large amounts of food in a very short period of time, and immediately “purge,” and or abuse laxatives or other medications to make sure the food injured has completely been removed from their system.
Bulimia can lead to serious and even life-threatening problems, such as depression, anxiety disorders, heart damage, kidney damage, injury to all parts of the digestive system, and severe mental damage. Anorexia nervous is self-imposed starvation. Anorexia nervous is a serious, life-threatening disorder, which usually comes from basic emotional causes. Although people with anorexia nervous need food, they continually deny their hunger. People with anorexia nervous often also limit or restrict other parts of their lives besides food, including relationships, social activities, or pleasure.
Anorexia nervous can cause severe medical problems and even lead to death. “The disorder involves extreme weight loss–at least 15% below the individual’s “ideal” weight and a effuse to maintain body weight that is even minimally normal for their age and height and body frame as mentioned in the eating disorder foundation website. Studies show that girls that girls that suffer from an eating disorder are normally girls that aim to be perfect and that are strict with themselves.
They are girls that underestimate themselves and that want to be better than others. Another huge factor that is what affects most girls is peer pressure and social pressure. Ultra thing body types as seen in media are what is beautiful for societies eyes and if they don’t kook like that, they won’t be accepted by society. Anorexic girls see their bodies as bad and overweight, whatever size they are. They don’t have confidence in themselves and are overly self-critical. They feel like the only way they can regain power is by controlling their body.
Bulimic girls have a negative and distorted body image too, and come to hate themselves, as well as having a fear of not being able to stop purging because it becomes a daily routine to do it even more than once a day. All of these causes can affect someone permanently and it can lead to several consequences like schizophrenia or death. The root cause of having any type of eating disorder is the same regardless which one; lack of self respect because whoever have this problem are ignorant to what is good or bad for y our body and mental state.
The key to overcoming eating disorders is to change the way the person sees the world and themselves. We all view the world through our own eyes, though the world we are in is the same. Yes, media and society are a huge factor to why people have to compete and self harm themselves in order to complete the requirements that are needed to be socially acceptable, but there is no need to go to such an extent that can end up taking your own life away.
There is NO need to look like the skinny models that have been photo shopped in the main page of a magazine, because that is not how they really look. The society that we live in is very illusion because that hero that people try to imitate so much also struggles through the same society pressure, so it has to lie with technological advances to make believe that she is also skinny and thin.
I believe the best treatment for eating disorders is not medication because medication will not solve the problem, but educating and teaching the victim about herself and what is right or wrong! Offer the person the chance to change her view of the world and her view of herself in the world. People with eating disorders feel powerless and useless and believe that the problem solver to their dreadful problems will be to stop eating or pushing the food out, but that will Just bring make all the effort and the starvation useless because it will only bring problems other that virtues.
Emotional Appeal: Power of peer pressure and the promotion of idealized, that is ultra thin, body-types, s seen in the media, as significant factors, which contribute to the causes of eating disorders. I know that many girls suffer this abomination that takes over our beliefs and goes against our own body but are to embarrassed to say something and ask for help. Statistics: Believe it or not, 2 out of 100 Junior high school girls in Japan suffer from eating disorders and need special treatment, according to THE Kyoto news network. Some boys do suffer from it too!
The disorder involves extreme weight loss–at least 15% below the individual’s “ideal” weight–and a refusal to maintain body weight that is even minimally normal for their age and height and body frame Ways to solve the problem: – I believe the best treatment for eating disorders is not medication alone, necessarily, but educating the sufferer, teaching the sufferer about herself! – I believe the best treatment for eating disorders is not medication because medication will not solve the problem, but educating and teaching the victim about herself and what is right or wrong!
Bulimia: – Bulimic girls too have a negative and distorted body image, and come to hate themselves, as well as having a fear of not being able to stop purging and binging. Bulimia can lead to serious and even life-threatening problems, such as depression, anxiety disorders, heart damage, kidney damage, injury to all parts of the digestive system, and severe dental damage. Anorexia: Anorexic girls see their bodies as bad and overweight, whatever size they are. They don’t have confidence in themselves and are overly self-critical.
They feel they are confidence through rigidly controlling their physical body. Anorexic girls see their bodies as bad and overweight, whatever size they are. They don’t have confidence in themselves and are overly self-critical. CHANGING OUR VIEW When you hear the term ‘eating disorder’, what do you imagine? A skinny girl who looks on the point of death? Or an overweight girl eating anything and everything? Boys do suffer from it too! ‘Eating disorder’ is a blanket term covering the problem of abnormal eating habits.
It may involve either insufficient, or excessive food intake, to the detriment of an individual’s physical and mental health. The former is called ‘anorexia’, which means eating too little, and the latter ‘bulimia’, which means eating too much. The consequences of an eating disorder can be severe, up to and including death. In spite of the fact that this disorder is in evidence all around us, a proper and effective treatment has not yet been found. The problem of eating disorders has been getting more attention lately, in the popular press and in the community at large.
Why one asks? Possibly because the problem is growing insidiously. The precise cause of eating disorders is not entirely understood, but there is evidence that it may be linked to something in the character of the sufferer. One study showed that girls who: aim to be perfect; who are strict with themselves; take n board all criticisms; are prone to personalize generalizations; tend to pessimism; and underestimate themselves, are particularly in danger of suffering from eating disorders. Girls such as these are more likely to develop eating disorders.
Some also view the power of peer pressure and the promotion of idealized, that is ultra thin, body-types, as seen in the media, as significant factors, which contribute to the causes of eating disorders. Some research also seems to suggest that there may be genetic reasons behind some people having a predisposition to the development of dating disorders. Powerless and try to regain a feeling of power and personal control by boosting their through taking control of their physical body, and in this way, they feel in power, in control and worthy.
Bulimic girls too have a negative and distorted body image, and come to hate themselves, as well as having a fear of not being able to stop purging and binging. All of this causes an emotional merry go round and the sufferer becomes more disturbed, and this may eventually result in the sufferer having increased difficulties in Just taking part in normal, daily life. Anorexia and Bulimia are two side of the same coin, however. Though seemingly anorexia and bulimia are complete opposites, one over eating, one under eating, they are related however.
The root cause is a common one: a lack of self-respect. The sufferer feels she is nothing, she is not important and she feels overwhelmed by life and she is not in control. This feeling off lack of control in her life leads the sufferer to take an unnatural control of the foods that the sufferer puts into her body. Within this situation there is great potential for serious danger to the sufferer, OTOH physically and psychologically. So I think the key to overcoming eating disorders is to change the way the patient sees the world. Medication is not the answer.
At least, medication is not the complete cure. We all view the world through our own eyes, though the world we are in is the same. It is to do with one’s personal perspective. One defines one’s experiences through one’s own perceptions, so the people may have exactly the same experiences, yet these two people may arrive at completely different personal views and conclusions, even though their experiences were the same. The eye of the older can define beauty and much else that takes place in this world, including the personal perception of truth’ as well as the perceptions of oneself.
It is the sufferer’s perception and definition of herself, which is critical when it comes to dealing with a person who is suffering from an eating disorder! We need to alter the way the sufferer sees the world, and the way she sees herself in this world. One does view the world through one’s own eyes and one makes one’s own assumptions, which affect one’s personal view. It is the assumptions of the sufferer that are an important issue in the case of eating disorders. She sees herself as worthless, and is convinced that others see her as worthless too.
This is the source of the problem, the patient’s view of herself, and her view of how the world sees her. I believe the best treatment for eating disorders is not medication alone, necessarily, but educating the sufferer, teaching the sufferer about herself! Offer the sufferer the chance to change her view of the world and her view of herself in the world. This is particularly the case in the area of eating disorders. Empower the individual so that he sees herself as worthy and valuable.
Let her always base her life and actions on the assumption that she is worthy, valuable and a human being of worth in this world. An individual of inherent, unquestionable worth, and if she decides things on that basis, then it is to be hoped she will make decisions which will be empowering and Bibliography: “The Eating Disorder Foundation. ” The Eating Disorder Foundation.
