Anorexia nervosa, often referred to simply as anorexia is an eating disorder, characterized by low weight, food restriction, fear of gaining weight and a strong desire to be thin. Many people with anorexia see themselves as overweight even though they are, in fact, underweight. They often deny that they have a problem with low weight. They may weigh themselves frequently, eat small amounts, and/or only eat certain foods.
At Marieva Healthcare Recovery, we provide a comprehensive anorexia treatment programme. Our number one priority is to understand your relationship with food and treat the underlying issues contributing to the eating disorder.
Bulimia is a psychological eating disorder in which you have episodes of binge eating (consuming a large quantity of food in one sitting). During these binges, you have no sense of control over your eating. In people with bulimia, overeating episodes are more like coercion.
Our bulimia treatment programmes are specifically tailored to your unique set of needs. A thorough assessment is carried out on arrival to determine the exact underlying root causes for the development of bulimia, whether these are other mental health issues, physical or biological issues.
