Symptoms and effects of overeating

Binge Eating Disorder can bring about serious health complications, both of the physical and emotional nature. It may also result in many of the risks commonly associated with obesity, like diabetes, heart disease and sleep apnoea. Among the emotional consequences widely linked with this eating disorder, the most frequent are anxiety, depression and low self-esteem. These factors have a great impact on the quality of life, both for individuals and their relatives.

The most common symptoms of overeating

  1. regularly eating more food than most people would do in a single sitting
  2. having binge eating episodes at least once a week for three months or longer
  3. feeling out of control while you’re eating
  4. eating a lot even when you’re not hungry
  5. eating alone, particularly because you’re embarrassed about how much you’re eating
  6. eating really fast or past the point of feeling full


Treatment for overeating

Overeating treatment

Our treatment programme aims to unveil the physical and emotional factors beneath eating habits, to help you cease binge eating and undertake solid steps toward long-term recovery. We also assist in finding the right responses to increasing emotional problems, like using various relaxation techniques in the calming atmosphere of a luxury rehab house instead of reaching out for food. Your medical and nutritional needs are an object of our special attention at The Kusnacht Practice, so that we may manage to shape the correct and hopeful programme for uplifting your body and spirit.


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.
