Symptoms and effects of bulimia

Uncontrolled wolf-hunger attacks lead to a variety of mood disorders, anxiety and neuroses. The typical response of a person suffering from the illness is an attempt to restore control over the body and calm down – through dieting, physical exercise, and self-induced vomiting. However, the guilt that accompanies bulimia results in withdrawing from social interactions, changing life plans and often reaching for drugs and alcohol.

The most common symptoms of bulimia

  1. episodes of overeating, coupled with a feeling of loss of control, occurring at least twice a week
  2. self-induced vomiting
  3. taking laxatives and diuretics
  4. taking appetite suppressants
  5. intense physical exercise

Bulimia treatment

In order to stop the cycle of compulsive eating and purging, the best care of a nutrition specialist is necessary, supported by psychological and pharmacological therapy. Changing the way of thinking about the body and recognising the sources of disorders is a complicated process that we monitor at each stage at TKP. Detailed laboratory and environmental analyses allow us to present a unique treatment plan and meet your personal needs. Individualised care allows flexibility in the pursuit of the best possible results, always in total privacy and the maximum comfort of our luxury residential rehab centre.


We provide the very best care and comfort. The investment starts at CHF 93,000 per week, depending on the requirements of the individual client. Fees are settled directly by the client (we do not work with insurance companies) and we can supply written quotations upon request.

The Kusnacht Practice services are not covered by Swiss health insurances. All costs are to be covered directly by the clients. Patients who are domiciled in Switzerland and are therefore mandatorily health insured may be reimbursed by their health insurance for medical services in accordance with the Federal Law on Health Insurance (KVG) and its implementing provisions.

Client testimonials and treatment options

  • Monica, aged 25

    “There’s the risk of judgment, the fear you’ll be misunderstood, or that people just won’t care. Being vulnerable is hard, but often openness, honesty and self-disclosure can lead to strength and empowerment. The Kusnacht Practice’s treatment programme and its individual approach have brought me hope. Now I am on a catwalk for myself.”
