Hypnotherapy for Bulimia

Hypnotherapy for Bulimia

Bulimia or Bulimia Nervosa is a form of eating disorder which causes an individual to enter into a cycle of overeating followed by a period of purging. Many people associate Bulimia with purging through vomiting but in fact a Bulimic may choose to also use diuretics, laxatives or even excessive exercise to try and combat the impact of their excessive eating. Hypnotherapy for Bulimia can help as it can reduce any anxiety associated with the condition. When the person suffering from the condition is more relaxed they begin to feel more in control and the binge/purge cycle begins to slow down and eventually stops.*

Symptoms of Bulimia

  • A feeling or lack of control
  • Periods of overeating followed by periods of fasting or excessive food control.
  • Vomiting or use of Diuretics
  • Need to over exercise
  • Fear of being overweight
  • Low self esteem
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Feelings of fear and self loathing

Bulimia Facts

When an individual has Bulimia it can often feel as if their life is spiralling out of control. They may feel an incredible need to try and control their intake of food. This control may last for days or only a few hours before the need to overeat begins to take over. Once the overeating begins they can consume a vast quantity of food before the reality of the situation hits and feelings of guilt take over. In order to rid themselves of the food or to negate the impact of the calories they have eaten they will then begin to purge to make themselves feel better. In some cases there is a link between Bulimia and Anorexia. For example an Anorexic may conquer their problem with eating but still have disordered eating with Bulimia. Hypnotherapy for Bulimia can help many people take back control over their problem eating.*
