Homeopathy for Eating disorders

Homeopathy for Eating disorders – ETHOS HEALTH CARE

Anorexia and bulimia are the most common eating disorders in the young, especially; in healthy women who develop a fear of becoming fat. Many people with eating disorders suffer from a deficiency of zinc, which could actually be a cause of the disease. Heart functioning eventually becomes impaired because a body lacking zinc will start scrounging for it within the body, actually consuming it from muscle tissue and the heart. Because zinc plays such a vital role in appetite regulation, it is essential to supplement the diet with it, in liquid form, if possible.

Recovering from an eating disorder can take a long time, and there are many treatments. Homeopathy is one of them. Homeopathy is an alternative medical treatment for those suffering from an eating disorder. As a holistic therapy it has the advantage of treating the individual as an individual, recognizing that he/she has his/her own reasons for developing the disorder.

Homeopathy is introducing minute doses of a drug that in large doses would cause the disease itself.

  • It aims to stimulate the body in building up natural defences against invaders.
  • It can also help to stimulate the brain to relax and de-stress and be used to affect moods.

Homeopathic remedies for anorexia and bulimia

Some of the homeopathic remedies are:

  • Arsenicum alb.
  • Carcinosin
  • Ignatia
  • Natrum mur
  • Pulsatilla
  • Stapysagria

Homoeopathic constitutional medicines are given considering the patient’s mental and psychological makeup, keeping in mind his physical makeup also.
