Stay healthy | 2018

The notion of food disorder involves a psychological problem, spread among women and men alike, covering a wide area of unhealthy eating habits, from compulsive eating to anorexia. Usually, this health problem manifests because of stress and excessive concern for physical appearance.

The most common forms of eating disorders are:

  • Anorexia Nervosa
  • Bulimia Nervosa
  • Hyperphagia

These conditions are classified as treatable diseases with serious effects, to fatal. Nutritional disorders can develop at any stage of life, but usually, they occur during adolescence or adulthood, and the consequences often extend to their loved ones as well. The conditions of the disease are complex and are triggered by many factors such as:

Biological Factors:

  • Irregular hormonal functions
  • Genetics
  • Nutritional Deficiency

Environmental factors:

  • Family dysfunctional dynamics
  • Professional life - ballet, modeling - that promotes weight loss
  • Some sports

The symptoms of eating disorders may be unnoticed and may occur in various contexts, depending on the severity of the problem. Among the most common symptoms are:

  1. Excessive concern for physical appearance and weight
  2. Avoiding social encounters when it involves food
  3. Too much exercise
  4. Changes in mood
  5. An extremely strict diet
  6. Fatigue, chills, dizziness
  7. Digestion problems
  8. Lack of menstruation in women

Returning to a healthy life after such a disorder involves a lot of effort and a clear food strategy. Among the specialists' suggestions for maintaining a balanced life, Prof. Dr. Werner Seebauer recommends eating baked meat, and healthy plant products. Equally, for the salad preparation, he reminds us of the importance of reducing nitrite by choosing fresh produce, especially leafy vegetables and some roots, harvested in the month with full sunshine.

Nutritional disorders can affect every system, so early detection and treatment can make a difference between a healthy life and one with a strict diet with many food restrictions. With the help of private health insurance, complex investigations can be carried out, and also appropriate treatments in hospitals and top clinics.
