How Do Eating Disorders Disrupt a Person’s Life?

eating disorder awareness

Eating disorder treatment can help you learn to treat your body right.

Eating disorders greatly disrupt a person’s life, not only do they negatively impact a person’s physical health, but they also become the main focus in a person’s life, resulting in the thoughts of food and eating and losing weight, taking over their thought processes. A person with an eating disorder will have a distorted self-image of their self, and because of this, they will develop poor eating habits, which will deprive them of important nutrients they need to be healthy.

According to the National Alliance on Mental Illnesses, eating disorders are among the most challenging mental illnesses a person can have. If eating disorders go untreated, they can result in serious medical complications and even death. Scientific studies have shown that one in every twenty people will experience symptoms of an eating disorder at some point in their lives. Proper diagnosis and treatment of these complex conditions is of critical importance.

Although eating disorders can be a horrible illness to battle, there is treatment, and the majority of the time, a person can heal from an eating disorder, although in many instances a person will have to go through different types of treatment to find one that works for them. There is no one treatment that is right for every person, and finding one that works may be difficult, but it is of the utmost importance.

What to Expect at Eating Disorder Rehab

According to the National Alliance on Mental Illnesses, through treatment and support, many people with eating disorders decrease their symptoms and go on to live healthy lives in the absence of serious medical complications. Family members and friends can be a huge help by providing nonjudgmental support of their loved one and by encouraging them to seek treatment for these serious conditions.

At an eating disorder rehab a person can expect to receive a plethora of support and therapy. Eating disorders stem from a person’s distorted perception of their self and at an eating disorder rehab a person can expect to engage in therapy, and they will work towards reconditioning their way of thinking to help them have a better self-image.

Moreover, through an eating disorder rehab a person can expect to have nutritious meals prepared for them, and can expect to have people there 24/7 to help nurture and guide them on their road to recovery. A person can also expect to be educated on the importance of nutrition and can expect to build a trusting relationship with their therapist.
