The human race’s relationship with food can be a complex one. In modern society, we are super-served a constant barrage of images of so-called perfect bodies and unrealistic diet plans via digital and social media, TV and magazines. This can contort our understanding of the role of food, of our bodies and lead to body perfectionism.

Anorexia is a non-discriminatory disease which can affect individuals, whatever their age, gender, race or ethnicity. It is all about perfectionism and distorted body image and is probably the best-known eating disorder. Anorexics restrict their food intake to keep weight off. Many will try dieting and the use of legal and illegal drugs such as laxatives and cocaine. If you think you may be suffering, please know that expert care from professionals using evidence-backed techniques can help those you address your problems with eating. Never forget that recovery is possible.

Anorexia is a perceived need to be or remain slim - a distorted belief that the restriction of food consumption and calories will improve one’s life. In fact, quite the opposite can be the real outcome, with many developing extreme mood swings, lack of energy and a string of side-effects, including psychotic disorders and even death. Anorexia and depression often accompany one other, with many experiencing sadness, isolation, shame, rejection, a feeling of not belonging or being misunderstood by others, This can have a huge knock-on effect on relationships with loved ones.

You think you’re fat when everyone else thinks you’re thin. But that distortion and the disease itself is extremely common. An estimated 30 million Americans suffer with it. Studies there show anorexia as the third most common illness in young people, just after asthma and type 1 diabetes. However, only one in ten are believed to seek treatment with a death every 62 minutes in the US.

Now those figures may sound frightening to you, but many who seek the right treatment fully recover and correct their relationship with food. And that’s what The Kusnacht Practice can do for you.
