Anorexia Nervosa - 5 Ways it Can be Treated!

Anorexia Nervosa - 5 Ways it Can be Treated!

Anorexia nervosa is a type of eating disorder, which falls under the category of psychological disorders. The patient becomes extremely thin and has an unreal perception of body weight. This unreal perception involves a fear of becoming fat. The primary symptoms are fasting, an aversion for food, obsessive thought about weight loss etc.

Here are the usual treatments for anorexia nervosa according to the progression of the disease.

  1. Medications: The first thing your doctors will do is prescribe medications to make sure that the patient has come back to a health condition, which is stable. This is because anorexia causes heart problems, depression and osteoporosis among other physical complications. The doctor will be giving separate medications for all of them. Once you start feeling better, the doctor will stop giving you medications. Sometimes medication also has to be given for malnutrition or starvation if the disease has set in far too deep.
  2. Counselling: The primary type of counselling, which will take place is nutritional counselling. Dietitians can help you with this, as they teach healthy eating patterns and know how to make you follow it therefore, this is a crucial part of the recovery process which should not be neglected.
  3. Therapy: Firstly, therapy and counselling are different treatment procedures. The main difference between the two is the focus of the treatment. Therapy is done by psychologists who help deal with what causes your hate of eating and try to eliminate these mental issues while counselling is done by counsellors who are there to help sort out your eating disorders. 
  4. Nutritional rehabilitation: This is a more serious form of counselling. The counsellors generally try unconventional methods at this stage to make sure that you are eating properly and will eat properly in the future. This is because by this stage the progression of the disease is more serious and weight has to be gained immediately.
  5. Starvation treatment: By this stage, nutrition has to be given in the form of fluids and you will be having severe health problems all of which need medication. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychologist.

This is a psychological disorder seen in children. This is known as attention deficit hyperactive disorder. If not managed & treated well at this age turns to be conduct disorder in future. Homeopathy has best medicines for it. Take hyoscyamus 30/ 1 week. 3 times a day. It is curable through homeopathy. I am consulting homeopath & psychologist specialised to deal with adhd students.

I suffer from severe anxiety and depression my concentration level is also very low
And suffer from laughter attacks ...
Hi lybrate-user, Do not worry about this issue, keep laughing Mr. Alok, nothing wrong in laughing, laughing is the best medicine. You have to be free from anxiety and depression. For that you should not mind about laughing, do not worry about what others say, it is sometimes inborn characteristics, as time passes you can control yourself from laughing, for that you need some exercise. Step 1: Go to your bedroom, when you feel depressed or anxious, keep laughing atleast for half an hour with intervals, Next keep laughing from AAAA, BBBBB, CCCC, EEEE, DDDDDD, till Z, outburst your depression from your heart. Step 2: Try to cry in serious situations, try to be serious, try to control, if you are not able to no problem. Step 3: Try to not attend social gathering for a month, instead can mingle with family and friends, Slowly you can attend social gathering 2 per month, try these steps and then get back to you, inbetween can call me or mail me if you have any doubt, or any problem. Best wishes for happy life. Regards, Psy. MSV.

Hello, dandruff causes hair loss so its necessary to treat dandruff first. Take thuja 200, 5 drops in the morning, once in a week. Take arnica q and cochleria arom. Q in equal amount, mix with equal amount of coconut oil, and apply this on your scalp, thrice a day. Wash your hair with b&t anti- dandruff shampoo. Home remedies are as follows:- coconut oil helps eliminate dandruff due to its antifungal properties. It also moisturizes dry scalp and provides relief from itching. Take some coconut oil and mix half the amount of lemon juice in it. 1. Rub it on your scalp and massage for a few minutes. 2. Wash your hair after at least 20 minutes. 3. Follow this remedy two to three times a week. Revert me after 1 month.

Pulsatilla can be entirely tender and regularly needs to be consoled by her accomplice that she is cherished at times to the point of being requesting. She can feel effectively pitiful, alone, or relinquished when she can't get this consolation. Pulsatilla can be resigned and need to please others.

I tried to quit smoking. And didn't smoke for 3 days. From that day am having headache and dizziness. Feeling like vomiting and sometimes vertigo also. After that I'm smoking half cigarettes whenever headache is severe, considering it as withdrawal symptom. Is there any other problem?

Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear Gaurav, You need to be appreciated for your decision to quit smoking. You have withdrawal symptoms as headache. Keep on motivating yourself to quit by smoking half cigarette and postponing the urge to smoke by few minutes. It will help you to reduce headache and also no smoking. Though headache goes away in few weeks, the cravings will continue for few months. Make a family member or friend to appreciate your effort to fight the craving
