Eating

Disorders

Today it is normal that many depressed people complain in the consultation of loss of energy, insomnia, sadness, tiredness or lack of interest, but forget to mention their rejection of food, even if it is very noticeable. Some patients not only don’t care about losing weight because of their illness, but also ask that the treatment doesn’t improve their appetite. On This website we look to understand and treat eating disorders.

Signs

The lack of appetite (or anorexia), together with insomnia, are unequivocal symptoms of depression; in the classic texts of Medicine, back at the beginning of our history, both appear, along with sadness or apathy, as essential aspects of that disease.

Attitude

To this day, however, the attitude of patients in the face of lack of appetite has changed, and it has changed to the point of losing its threatening character. A symptom that in the last century was perceived as serious, and was yet another reason for suffering, is acceptable in these times.

Appetite

Today it is normal that many depressed people complain in the consultation of loss of energy, insomnia, sadness, tiredness or lack of interest, but forget to mention their rejection of food, even if it is very noticeable. Some patients not only don't care about losing weight because of their illness, but also ask that the treatment doesn't improve their appetite.

Treatment

Nutritional counseling probably won't completely solve the problem, but many healthcare professionals understand that attention to eating habits should be part of the treatment of Mental and Behavioral Disorders.

Can Anorexia Be Cured?

The space that Eating Disorders occupy on the web is nourished by questions and messages that, without having any real basis, favour the discouragement of those affected: “can anorexia be cured?” or “anorexia is not cured, it is only controlled” “they are chronically ill” “We have to learn to live with the disease”. We say that the basis of these statements is not real because anorexia is a reversible disease when treated properly. Join us in finding out how this can be achieved.
