Natural Farmacy: Health Guide: Health Conditions: Anorexia
 
Anorexia
 
An eating disorder where the person's perception of their body is distorted. They are severely underweight, yet continue to believe that they are fat. Anorexics obsess over the amount they eat and feel extreme guilt over every bite. Women are 9 times as likely to voluntarily starve themselves.

Psychotherapy is always recommended for this disorder to insure proper treatment of the root cause. A healthy diet is important as support therapy because most anorexics are severely malnourished and lacking in essential vitamins and minerals.
