Eating disorders are conditions involving habitual unhealthy eating behaviors that cause dangerous effects on one’s physical, mental, and emotional health. Society’s standards on body weight and body figures have impacted the eating habits of many individuals. In an attempt to measure up to the ideal body standards, eating disorders have become a part of their lives. Whether they eat insufficiently or excessively, those with eating disorders also experience mental health problems because of severe distress over their bodies. Some of the most common disorders include anorexia, bulimia, and binge-eating.
Without proper treatment for such disorders, the person could be at risk of physical problems such as heart disease, malnutrition, digestive problems, and so forth. Bad eating habits will take a while to be transformed into healthy ones, but it’s always good to start somewhere. If treatment is what you need, we can help you.
