    A psychological disorder, which is marked by abnormal eating patterns is known as an eating disorder. Eating disorder, commonly known as anorexia nervosa in medical circles, is often a combination of both abnormal eating and weight gain patterns. Yet, on general diagnosis, eating disorders are categorized into three types, namely, anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating.

    Diagnostically stated, a person suffering from:

    Anorexia nervosa is usually characterized by low body weight as well as a disturbed perception of one's weight.
    Bulimia nervosa on the other hand includes, persistent binge eating along with loss of self-control and a psychological overvaluation of one's body shape or weight.
    The third category, which is binge eating, is marked by anxiety, consistent overeating, stress and drastic loss of self-esteem.

    Although, eating disorder is a commonplace disorder worldwide, the cause of it still remains unknown. A recent research has found that due to the fact that eating disorders reflect a physiological anomaly between the need to eat and the drive to eat, a hypothesis is developed stating the cause to be a disturbing appetite pattern on the most fundamental level. This proposition has been further delved into using brain imaging that shows emotions, rewards and eating inhibitions are linked to neural pathways.

    Current treatments, which include forms of psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy have limited capacity in reducing and normalizing eating disorders. Furthermore, various psychological interventions used to treat eating disorders are variations of psychiatric treatments, which are not particular to the needs of the patient in such disorders. Empirical researches have linked inhibitions, rewards and maladaptive eating behaviors to alterations in the circuitry of the brain. Furthermore, abnormal metabolistic behaviors are also linked to eating disorders.

    Although no concrete remedy exists, a person suffering from eating disorders could get their symptoms minimalized to a certain extent through rehabilitation clinics and therapies.

    3 Common Eating Disorders and Their Signs

    Eating disorders can be defined as conditions that influence your eating behaviour significantly and which may give rise to serious health issues. Eating disorders are associated with behaviours like compulsively counting calories, puking after meals, living on a rigid diet etc. which often leads to a feeling of self-loathing and obsessive thoughts about food and weight.

    Here are the three most common eating disorders and the symptoms by which they can be identified.

    1. Anorexia nervosa - This disorder is considered to be a mortally dangerous condition in which the body weight reduces drastically. An individual is terrified about gaining weight and can take extreme steps to maintain their weight and shape, often leading to starvation, vomiting and many other health problems.

    Common symptoms include:

    -Reducing the amount of food to be consumed to cut down the calories
    -Exercising beyond capacity to burn calories
    -Recurrently monitoring your shape, weight and appearance
    -Skipping meals
    -Avoiding social gatherings where you will be offered food
    -Irregular menstrual cycles in women
    -Erectile dysfunction in men

    2. Bulimia nervosa - Mostly observed among people in their mid-teens, Bulimia nervosa is a serious type of eating disorder associated with episodes of bingeing and purging with the individual being unable to regulate their eating habits. Moreover, the person suffering from this disease often feels guilty and horror-struck about weight gain and forces himself/herself to vomit.

    Normally, people suffering from this condition exhibit the following habits:

    -Binge eating
    -Use of laxatives or throw up forcibly to get rid of calories
    -Feeling exhausted and guilty
    -Experiencing irregularity in their menstrual cycles
    -The inability to maintain normal weight, in spite of trying to eliminate calories

    3. Binge-eating disorder - This disorder is characterised by overeating, eating even when you don't feel hungry and continuing to eat even after feeling full. People suffering from this disorder cultivate a feeling of guilt inside them for overeating but do not try to nullify its effect by vomiting or exercising intensely. Some of the most prominent symptoms of this disorder include:

    -Eating alone to hide the embarrassment caused due to overeating
    -Eating quicker than normal people
    -Being overweight
    -Binge eating at minimum one instance every week

    How to identify you or your loved one might be struggling with Depression?

    Most of us have faced the feeling of being weighed down by life's harsh realities and have been sad or low for a long while. It is very common to be upset for some time and most people recover from this feeling and start smiling again in a short span of time. But, if you or any of your loved ones are almost always very sad and this spirit is affecting your daily life considerably, then chances are you might be undergoing a phase of depression.

    Here are certain signs to watch out for to determine whether you are struggling with depression.

    1. Cultivation of a pessimistic approach about everything in life

    You feel a sense of hopelessness and that your situation in life will always be the same without any improvement is a sure shot sign that you are suffering from depression.

    2. Sudden variation in weight or appetite

    If you suddenly find that you've lost or gained a significant amount of weight without any substantial reason, then chances are high that it is happening because of your depression.

    3. A significant change in sleeping patterns

    If you've been experiencing insomnia lately or have got a habit of oversleeping, then these might be symptoms of depression.

    4. Feeling of guilt without any particular reason

    If you have started feeling guilty or constantly blame yourself for everything you've done in the past then the reason behind this may be your state of depression.

    5. Anger or irritated mood

    Having a low level of tolerance, getting angry quickly or always being in an irritated mood can be a prominent sign of depression.

    6. Displaying an uninteresting behaviour towards regular activities

    If you no longer feel pleasure in pursuing your favourite activities or things from daily life like hobbies; socialising doesn't interest you anymore then it can be a warning sign for you. In such cases, you can visit a psychiatrist to get treatment for depression.

    4 ways to control your obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)

    Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a type of anxiety disorder in which a person has recurring thoughts and feels the urge to perform certain specific tasks at regular intervals.

    Living with OCD can very difficult and medications or therapy alone cannot guarantee complete recovery. The patient himself/herself has to take certain steps to win against the disease.

    Here are some measures you can take to control the symptoms of OCD to recover faster.

    1. Accept the truth

    If you cultivate an accepting approach towards the fact that you are suffering from OCD and will experience obsessive thoughts then it will be easier to cope with the situation. You have to convince yourself that the recurring thoughts and compulsions you're having are not real, do not imply anything and will go away soon. This helps you maintain an optimistic approach and accelerate your recovery process.

    2. Try to postpone your compulsions

    When you have the urge to do certain ritualistic tasks try not to give in to them. Try to suppress the urges by saying to yourself that you will do it later and then involve yourself in normal day to day activities so that the compulsions can't rule you anymore.

    3. Divert your attention

    When you feel that you are having a recurring thought or compulsion, try to distract yourself by channelizing your thoughts towards some other activity. You will find that as you engage yourself in other activities, the obsessive compulsive thoughts will lose their impact on you and will prove to be less bothering.

    4. Tell yourself that ocd is one of the most insignificant things of your life

    Reduce the amount of value you impart to the disorder. Try to convince yourself that ocd cannot change your way of living life and you don't need to give in to your recurring thoughts and compulsions every time. Try to believe that you will not let this disorder affect your life in anyway and it's just your brain bringing these thoughts, not you.
