Those with this disorder consume large amounts of food and then rid their bodies of the excess calories by self-induced vomiting, enemas, laxatives, diuretics, or obsessive exercising. Because these individuals “binge and purge” and are able to maintain normal body weight, they often successfully hide their problem from others for years. The frequency of bingeing and purging can range from once or twice a week to several times a day. The reason for this behavior is an abnormal fear of becoming fat and an obsession with eating. Bulimia typically begins during adolescence and occurs most often in women between ages 15 and 30; the condition is also found in some men. Many individuals do not seek help until their late 20s, 30s, or 40s. By this time their eating behavior is deeply programmed into their brains and bodies, making it more difficult to change. Continuing this destructive pattern for a prolonged period can result in dangerous nutritional deficiencies and metabolic imbalances. If you think you have reached a chronic state of bulimia, seek professional help at once. Other symptoms include: cramping, dizziness, emaciation, low blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, broken blood vessels on the face, damage to the enamel of the teeth, irregular menstrual periods, swollen neck, and depression, sometimes with suicidal ideation. Recommended Supplements: L-Taurine, Neuro Complex, GTF Chromium, Royal Jelly, Enzymes, Super, Neuro Relaxer, Multiple for Every Man, Multiple for Every Woman, Magnesium Citrate, or Calcium, Bone Density (with magnesium and vitamin D). If you are taking the above supplements, you need not add extra Zinc. 5-HTP is included in the Neuro Relaxer, but some may need additional 5-HTP at bedtime to promote sleep. Christ-like character brain image transformation sessions, accomplished through computer-assisted brain wave measuring instruments, can produce amazing results. See also Anorexia Nervosa. Note: You don’t have to order all the supplements listed for each health condition. Start with the first one to three products, based on your needs. Take supplements for a minimum of one month (in severe cases longer) until relieved of the symptoms. Then take supplements on and off for maintenance.
