Anorexia and bulimia are both eating disorders, more often suffered by teenagers and younger adult women. The cause of these disorders is not clear, however there are indications that emotional support for sufferers helps with the recovery process.
At ARC we combine supportive counselling with homeopathic remedies to help unlock some of the "stuck" feelings - sadness or anger, anxiety or panic - that can accompany the disorder.
It's incredibly brave to talk about the chaos and loss of control over your own life that anorexia brings. Sufferers can experience anxiety and panic in social situations. There are often deep and significant feelings of guilt.
ARC Homeopathy can support you understand your feelings, how these link to eating then vomiting food, to constant exercise and restlessness.
Anorexia can show itself at any time in life but can often be traced to a stressful period of life, like puberty or exams, or an emotional event like a loss, bereavement or parental divorce.
"Coping with anorexia feels like a life-long struggle"
