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.
