A Guide To Overcoming Eating Disorders

Eating disorders are serious mental illnesses that affect millions of people around the world. And while many people suffer from eating disorders, there is still a huge stigma attached to them. Eating disorders can lead to other mental health issues, like anxiety and depression. They also increase the risk of heart disease, kidney failure and osteoporosis, as well as death.

What Causes Eating Disorders?

Eating disorders are a serious issue for many people. According to the National Eating Disorder Association, “An estimated 30 million women and 10 million men suffer from a clinically significant eating disorder at some time in their life.”

Eating disorders are generally classified into two categories: anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa. Anorexia is characterized by low weight and body image distortion. Bulimia is characterized by binging or eating large amounts of food followed by purging, fasting or excessive exercise.

First off, let’s clarify what we mean by “eating disorder.” We’re not talking about the occasional dieter who has lost 5 pounds over the course of a month.

It can be hard to understand how something like this could happen. Eating disorders are not just about being skinny or fat. There are psychological components that drive them. Without understanding them, it is easy to blame the victim and not understand why they developed an eating disorder in the first place. Eating disorders are actually a common problem, affecting 1 in 5 women in the United States and 1 in 10 men. They often start early in life, with symptoms presenting themselves by the age of 14. Most people who suffer from eating disorders are not very overweight at all. This means that the general population does not see them as legitimate issues.

It is just a fact that some cultures value thinness more than others. In other words, there are countries where people are considered to be overweight even though they have a healthy body mass index (BMI). We tend to think that eating disorders are only about being skinny. Nothing could be further from the truth.

I had anorexia in my early twenties, developed as a coping mechanism to my life. I had been continuously verbally abused by my mother for years into my adulthood and my first husband was an alcoholic and drug addict. I was in a very controlling church where no matter how hard I tried I never seemed to measure up, and instead received a lot of judgment. My work environments were strangely toxic too.

Anorexia was an attempt to control SOMETHING in my life which seemed to be very much out of my control and deeply affected by others. I was seeking approval from people who weren’t able to provide it, and the more weight I lost, the further they seemed to push the goalposts. It was only when my doctor warned me she wanted to send me to a specialist that I woke up to what I was doing to myself and how I was allowing a couple of damaged people affect me so deeply.

That turning point allowed me to see I needed to to inwards to find my approval and acceptance, and not be seeking it continuously in outside sources. It also became the pivotal moment where I realized I DID have choices when it came to who I allowed in my life and what kind of treatment I accepted from them!

In recovering from my anorexia illness, it then allowed me to heal so many ways I had sustained inner damage. For me the anorexia was a manifestation of what was going on inside of me. My recovery then became the manifestation of healing.

Dear Tamara
Thank you so much for sharing here. This is so helpful and informative to others. To read your story and how you came to realise, what happens to us, shouldn’t be allowed to define us by us giving it power. I applaud your inner work, it certainly isn’t easy to go it alone without support, hopefully, you did have support from your Doctor? However, I am so proud of you, for sharing your journey back to health here, your words, your strength and your courage will give so much hope and encouragement to others. Karen x

Thanks Karen! I was actually afraid of opening up to my doctor. I went through the healing process alone but thankfully the universe sent me some wonderful teachers to help me through! I’m grateful for what I learned, even though I felt I did it the hard way, but in reality, there’s no easy way is there?! I suppose it was because of that struggle that I wrote my two books, knowing that there’s many people like myself who will be going through their healing journey alone!

Yes indeed, our trials and tribulations are our greatest teachers. It is never what happens to us but how we react to them. Learning how to control and deal with our feelings and emotions is stepping into our power. Well done you, you’re awesome!

Why thank you so much! I appreciate your kudos! Yes, truly, learning how to deal with our emotions in a healthy way is the best thing we can do for ourselves! Teaching ourselves to like ourselves is a huge key to becoming able to stop the series of judgmental thoughts we hurl at ourselves and becoming able to practice being kind instead of harsh! Truly a big work but sooooo worthwhile!
