Anorexia treatment / overcoming Anorexia nervosa
at the Huddersfield and Manchester Hypnotherapy Clinic
"Anorexia nervosa" literally means a "loss
of appetite for nervous reasons", but this definition is
slightly misleading. The reality of Anorexia nervosa is the loss
of ability of the sufferer to allow him or herself to satisy their
appetite. By denying the body (both food and drink) its basal
nutritional requirements, the sufferer can end up consuming way
below what would be considered healthy and thus problems resulting
from nutritional deficit can occur.
Compounding the problem of not eating anough food, the sufferer
may carry out intensive exercise to burn of what is perceived
as excess calories. People with the condition of Anorexia find
that this food obsession is a way of feelings that they are in
control of their body shape and weight.
Sustained periods of time without sufficient nutrition may not
only damage the physical body, but after time will take its toll
on the mentality of the sufferer. Inadequate nutrition will also
lead to the brain being malnurished - this can lead to distorted
and irrational thinking that may lead to further restrictions
in diet. At it's worst, Anorexia may lead to full bodily malfunction
and can lead to death.
Many people with this eating disorder will experience it to varying
degrees, from mild control of diet to heavy restriction of normal
nurtitional needs. The problem with this condition is that it
can easily spiral out of control to the point at which very serious
health problems occur.

treatment - overcoming Anorexia with Pure Hypnoanalysis
People who suffer from Anorexia Nervosa do so because of bottled
up anxiety. They tend to be people who find it difficult to express
anxiety in a general sense and will often bottle up their feelings.
As young children, or commonly as adult, they are eager to please
people and do not want to upset others around them. Commonly this
extends to wanting to care and look after others, often at the
expense of themselves. Although the symtoms of Anorexia are about
the control of food, the disorder actually exists because of feelings
and emotions that are locked up inside.
