What is Bulimia?

Bulimia nervosa is a little similar to anorexia nervosa in that it is an eating disorder that can eventually lead to poor health and even death. The root cause of bulimia in an individual is the fear of being fat, but instead of the usual methods of making sure this fear does not become reality, the individual who is bulimic takes a different approach. They eat all sorts of food, sometimes in large quantities, then immediately afterwards, make themselves throw up in order to purge their bodies of what they have just eaten. Help with bulimia nervosa is needed so that these individuals will not ruin their health.

Bulimia nervosa victims plan their binge and purge sessions

A person with bulimia nervosa disorder not only has thought patterns that cause this behavior that is so destructive to their health, but also plans their bingeing and purging. People with bulimia will plan in minute detail not only when they will have a binge and purge session, but what they will eat and where they will eat it. They then follow up by either making themselves throw the food up, or having a lengthy exercise session to burn off the calories contained in the mound of food they consumed.

Sometimes, this behavior happens on a daily basis. Sometimes the bulimic will have days where they swear to themselves that they are not going to binge and purge, but eat normally, sometimes they will binge and purge multiple times ever day. They start out on the right foot, but then think they have eaten too much for the day, so they just continue to eat in excess, and then purge themselves. Help with bulimia nervosa will end this kind of behavior.   

What are the symptoms of bulimia nervosa?

  • Eating an enormous amount of food and then making themselves vomit, or going on an exercise binge.
  • When the weight begins to creep up, vomiting can increase, as well as skipping meals or going entire days without eating.
  • The use of laxatives, enemas, and diuretics to help control weight
  • Compulsively exercising to excess
  • Mindless gobbling during a food binge
  • Repeating the binge and purge cycle over and over again

People with bulimia nervosa fear being fat more than anything else in the world. This is why they binge and purge. They feel guilty about eating so much, and want to get rid of the food in some way, and this happens again and again. The only way to stop this behavior is to break the binge/purge cycle. Help with bulimia nervosa works by teaching those with this disorder to change those thoughts that automatically come to mind and cause them to go on a binge/purge spree.

What can NLP and hypnosis do for me?

NLP and hypnosis will work to break the cycle of the bingeing and purging of bulimia nervosa by working with both your conscious and your unconscious mind. Your conscious mind is trained to make better choices while your subconscious mind is trained to think of bingeing and purging as something that you definitely don't want to do. This help with bulimia nervosa is proven to work to rid you of the disorder.

Since bulimia nervosa is an eating disorder, it would be a good idea for you to visit your doctor regularly and make sure that no nutritional deficiencies have been caused by the binge/purge cycle.

How long will the treatment take?

Most people can be free of bulimia nervosa with only two to four sessions that last about an hour each. Some people are able to stop this behavior after having just one session. Of course, results will vary according to the individual, but you will always have your problem resolved by us with the fewest sessions possible. If you need help with bulimia nervosa, give NLP and hypnosis a try! We have clinics in Toronto and Vancouver and would love to help you!
