A STUDY ON RECOVERY FROM EATING DISORDERSThe recovery from the disorders that come from eating have the capability of takingmonths or even years. The rules include slips, backslides and relapse and hence they are notexcluded. The relearning of the standard eating habits and coping of the skills in most cases takerelatively longer periods of time and hence they require much support from scholars, allies andfamily members too[CITATION McF13 \l 1033]. Forward movement is the key although in mostcases it seems to be slow[ CITATION Sye14 \l 1033 ].People who keep struggling with the eating disorders need answers on:How to address the immediate medical concerns that come up as a result of the disordersthat they have.To find out how they can work on the reduction and elimination of the behaviors emanatingfrom eating disorders?To find out how professional address the co-occurring issues like depression, anxiety or trauma?To find how victims feel towards the subjectivity to this disease.To find out what is their expectation if treated.To find out how they feel about the professional offering the Medicare.Most psychologists term recovery as the process that involves the creation of a life that isworth living. The central objective during the recovery period is always overcoming food andconsumption concerns during the recovery time[ CITATION Kay13 \l 1033 ]. However, the latter is alittle bit far from being the only task of recovery[CITATION Bjö14 \l 1033]. The psychologists havedone research and found three areas that involves the recovery from eating disorder.
Physical recovery- This is the standardization of the physical eating consequences whichinvolves the restoration of weight to the appropriate levels of individuals, the normalization ofelectrolyte and the leveling of hormones, the menstruation resumption and other issues which arerelated to health care and are caused by the eating disorders[ CITATION Haa11 \l 1033 ]. Thevictims of the longer term eating disorders may not be able to reverse the effects of health as awhole although they are able to address them in other areas[CITATION McF13 \l 1033].Behavioral recovery- This refers to a termination or the reduction in the restriction of diet, overexercise and restriction.Psychological recovery- This is in most cases the most difficult area as far as definition isconcerned. It refers to the addressing of the cognitive expressive features of the disorders ofeating. It includes distress in body image, the aspect of perfectionism and the rules that rotatearound the food, weight and eating as a whole[CITATION Bac12 \l 1033]. The individuals who havethe co-occurring conditions lie mood and disorders caused by anxiety may also need to managethe disorders with an aim of sustaining a long lasting recovery.The field that is concerned with eating habits and eating disorder research is evolving ina continuous manner. There has been treatments which are being developed and the definition isdone on these discoveries. Having the complexity of the nature of the eating habits, the factorsthat contribute to the given disease are complicated. There is no existence of even one singlecausative agent that is responsible for the development of the said disorder but an accumulationof several factors which are compounding and which take part in the development and upkeep ofthese diseases[ CITATION Tit13 \l 1033 ]. The factors are varying and can be classified asbiological, social, emotional or environmental. One of the major factors that researchers havedwelt on in the past is the biological composition of eating disorders[CITATION Cal13 \l 1033].
Many of the researchers have contemplated and hypothesized the kind of mechanisms that thatoccur in the body of human beings and precisely the human brain which is capable of making anindividual vulnerable to the development of anorexia, bulimia and other eating disorders likebinge. Our study will show the examination of the real contributors of the eating disorder such asthe genetic make-up, hormones and neurobiology.Anorexia nervosa is known to be one of the deadliest diseases and has the highestmortality rate among the deaths caused by eating disorders[ CITATION Sye14 \l 1033 ]. It ischaracterized by waiting outcomes and there is also no treatment that is empirically supported forthe adults[CITATION Bjö14 \l 1033]. The patients suffering from anorexia nervosa yearn to be thinfor them to obtain a self-control towards both change and shift[CITATION Str13 \l 1033]. Forresearchers to acquire greater understanding of the parents comprehension of their own situation,the purpose of this study was find out whether we can have a specialized eating disorder unit thatwill manage the people who have fallen victims of the latter.Study design: there was the use of a qualitative study design. The study was made up of 5 ladieswho were aged between 18 years of age and 25.The determination of age was done in the initialstage of the questionnaire administration. The questions were to be answered by those who wereunder the given age bracket. The age bracket was chosen since it is the youthful stage and thebody is very active in that age and hence individuals in that age bracket are most affected bythese sicknesses.Open ended Questionnaire:What is your age?
