What is Bulimia?

Bulimia is a mental and behavioral disorder in which the person will uncontrollably binge eat a large amount of food in one sitting, even if they are not hungry, and then “purge”, both to help the over-filled stomach feel better and to try and get rid of the calories they just ate. Bulimia is characterized by an inability to stop overeating, along with a severe fear of gaining weight. The majority of people with bulimia are younger women, but anybody can be affected by this disorder.

Signs and Symptoms of Bulimia

The most common signs and symptoms of bulimia include:

  • Frequent loss of control while eating, consuming an atypically large amount of food at one time
  • Continued actions on oneself to prevent weight gain like vomiting, using laxatives, diuretics, enemas, herbal weight loss remedies, diet plans, and fasting or excessively exercising
  • Eating in secret, when alone, and not wanting to eat in front of others
  • Feeling fear or guilt when it comes to gaining weight
  • Obsessing over calories, weight, and body shape
  • Stealing other people’s food, hiding food, or eating discarded food to ensure you have “enough” for yourself
  • Feeling hopeless about your relationship with food

If these symptoms sound familiar to you, eating disorder treatment centers are somewhere you can go to get help.

Treatment for Bulimia

Treating bulimia is all about getting to the underlying root causes of this behavior. The methods of treating bulimia include:

  • Addressing anxiety: behind binge eating and purging is anxiety, which exists in the nervous system, and causes thoughtless actions as a response to feelings of stress, loss of control, and trauma. Once you cope with your underlying issues that cause anxiety, you will be able to move forward and learn healthier coping mechanisms.
  • Reprogramming thinking: society places undue pressure on a person’s appearance, and for some, this pressure can grow until they become conditioned to dislike themselves and fear weight gain, making their entire life about performing for others rather than discovering what they like about themselves. Reprogramming the brain will bring relief from this unrelenting shame and fear, so you can live your best life and be who you want to be.
  • Promoting healthy eating and improving your relationship with food: learning proper nutrition, portion sizes, exercise routines, and other healthy habits and coping mechanisms for stress will allow patients to take back control over their bodies, reboot their immune systems, and grow stronger in body and in spirit.

Therapies like Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Experiential Engagement Therapy are popular evidence-based approaches used in treatment.

What is Luxury Inpatient Bulimia Treatment Like?

Luxury bulimia treatment centers are located around the world, in places with incredible scenery and lovely climates, like Hawaii. A luxury inpatient bulimia treatment center is a residential center that provides psychiatric care, along with counseling and physical health care, in a world-class, resort-like setting.

As in any bulimia treatment center, patients identify triggers and find new ways to deal with anxiety and stress, focusing on mental well-being, but luxury treatment centers will provide extra amenities that other centers will not, including top-tier accommodations and food, holistic therapy or out-of-the-box treatments like animal-assisted therapy, adventure therapy and wellness treatments like acupuncture and massage therapy. There will likely be a high staff-to-patient ratio and executive programs that allow personal devices and schedule that allows for work calls and meetings. Luxury centers will usually have higher security and confidentiality standards, as many patients are in the public eye.

Bulimia Treatment Centers with a Registered Dietician on Staff

Having a registered dietician on staff at inpatient bulimia treatment centers will provide patients with a better relationship with food, giving nutritional information, a personalized diet plan, vitamin and mineral supplementation, and sometimes even cooking classes to ensure they understand the relationship between diet, exercise, weight, and health.
