Bulimia Treatment for Bulimia Nervosa
It’s 4:00p.m. and I haven’t eaten yet today. I ate so much last night and I don’t think I got rid of all of the food I consumed. I was only going to have a handful of chips, but I was watching TV and ate a few more. Then I got some cereal. I thought, “here I am again. I promised myself that today would be different. I didn’t even make it for one day. I have no willpower. What is wrong with me? There has to be a better way!”
Have you experienced this heart sinking feeling? Even as your heart sank into the abyss of guilt and you gave sideways glances into the looking glass, did your mind obsess about what would be good to eat next? Have you awoken from a food comma to discover that much to your horror, you have eaten everything in your house, including the secret stash between the mattress, in the hatbox at the top of the closet and the trunk of your car? In this realization, was your reaction to one-way-or-another purge all of that food from your stomach?
You are not alone. Nothing is wrong with you and there is indeed a better way. While the exact number is unknown, millions of men and women have had this experience or one similar. What you are experiencing are some of the signs and symptoms of Bulimia Nervosa, an eating disorder. Eating disorders are a mental health issue. Hold on, before you click away, there is nothing to be ashamed of, what has happened is that you have lost your intuitive ability to detect hunger. The good news is you can get it back and live your life free from bulimia’s vicious cycle, which has probably robbed you of at least one part of your life and left you with a sense of alienation.
We understand what it is to have this heart sinking experience, to be afraid, to want it end but to panic at the thought of losing the binging and purging cycle that has become a “best friend.” We know what it is like to be overcome with guilt or shame and to think that only safe life is one of isolation. We also understand what it is to have a heart lifting experience, to be awakened and vibrant, to live a life that is happy, joyous and free of guilt or shame, to have real relationships and friends, and to experience the self-love that affirms worthy abundance.
Perhaps you are asking how you find that understanding for yourself? Now that you know you have the eating disorder Bulimia Nervosa, what do you do? Rebecca’s House was founded with the sole mission to help people such as you recover from bulimia through bulimia treatment. Our founder, Rebecca Cooper knows first hand what it is like to live or rather exist with Bulimia Nervosa, what it is like to reconnect with intuitive hunger, what it is like to move through feelings, AND what it is like to be free an eating disorder including bulimia. It is a freedom that few words can adequately express but through bulimia treatment can be felt.
Just as people vary, so too are eating disorders and the bulimia treatment that release them. In general, Exercise Bulimia, Bing/Purge, Diabulimia and EDNOS are the different types of Bulimia Nervosa that often require bulimia treatment. It is possible to go back and forth between different forms of disordered eating. It is common for Bulimia Nervosa to co-occur or be accompanied with another form of mental illness or substance abuse. Regardless of the type of eating disorder, bulimia treatment is the key that unlocks the prison door and greets freedom. No more asking, “Why am I doing this?” or thinking “Tomorrow I will stop.” No more broken promises, recovery mean possibilities.
Perhaps you are thinking, “That sounds great. I want to be that whole, healthy, happy person with endless possibilities but why is Rebecca’s House the best place for bulimia treatment? How are you going to help me?”
