Disordered eating inflicts private suffering; particularly anorexia ( anorexia nervosa ) and bulimia nervosa.
Bulimia is an over eating disorder and anorexia is more like starving yourself. Powerful emotions drive these disordered eating patterns and distort the sense of self and body image.
More common in women, male anorexia now presents more frequently. Bulimia and anorexia may be separate or combined behaviours in the same person at different times in their lives.
Those suffering these difficulties know how complex they are - the torture of associated rituals and shame of concealment.
Many think that theirs is a severe, shameful and hopeless case. Invariably they are astonished to discover how far from the true extremes they really are - and how hopeful their prospects.
Nor do they realise how- with thoughtful direction and support - the habit may yield within a reasonably short time.
Less serious are a common eating problems or bad eating habits & erratic eating behaviours which affect well-being over the longer term - but remain at sub-clinical levels.
Busy lives often result in comfort or stress eating - ignoring hunger and then - in a rush - overeating. A person who is overweight and wants to lose weight, has often lost the capacity for natural weight control through a long history of over eating. Unwise diet regimes can set weight loss and eating at odds. The sense of not eating enough alternates with binge eating. Dieting becomes a demoralising yo-yo process.
Thirdly there are eating difficulties which may be regarded as food disorders or feeding disorder. The behaviours of apparently picky eaters or fussy eaters may be rooted in actual physical aversions. These may be innate and experienced from childhood. Children with sensory integration disorder commonly have such neurological difficulties.
Eating difficulties and eating behaviours like this are often thought mistakenly to be self-absorbed and manipulative or dismissed as mere food fads.
Though food phobias can originate in events and not neurology, intense likes and dislikes need to be respected. Whatever their nature, every difficulty is experienced in a very individual way.
Care is required to reveal underlying patterns. Cognitive behavioural analysis can identify associated behaviours and mental processes. Deep state hypnosis can interrupt difficult patterns, creating space for different awaresness and processes to develop. Sufferers can then address their difficulty with calm.
More severe cases generally require combined Psychotherapy and Ericksonian hypnotherapy. Ericksonian methods often incorporate mysterious exercises. These strategies are generally fast and effective in taking the mind to new places and revealing new pathways to effortless success.
