Question: What is the best treatment for Anorexia Nervosa? I really need to know what the best treatment is for anorexia, I have a really good friend that needs it and her mom asked me and I would really like to help.
Answer: your friend obviously has a lot of pain inside her.it is like anyone who drinks to excess,takes hard drugs,self harms,or overeats every single day,to reach the inner core of the problem may never be revealed simply because the mental anguish of telling anyone is too much for that person to deal with so they just bottle it up and it manifests itself into one of those problems stated above,the solution therefore is this;a really good hypnotist will gently release all the inner demons and awaken within your friend the will to self recovery,they have saved literally millions of lives over the years with simple but extremely effective techniques by re programming the sufferers mind out of the darkness and back into the light,what the mind can conceive and believe it then can achieve........
Question: Has anyone ever been to an anorexia treatment center? Basically, an eating disorder treatment center or clinic.How long did you have to stay there and did it have a good effect on your eating habits.Would you recommend it to me?
Answer: I used to be aenorexic- i never went to a clinic though, but i would definately recommend one. I was only in the beginning stages, and could overcome it, but i would definately recommend counseling and such. Aenorexia is an illness not only of the body, but of the mind. You have to change your way of thinking. How I overcame it was first of all- start out eating foods that aren't filling and such. Choose simple, easy to eat foods. (I found gummies very easy to eat) And as you are getting it down, think to yourself of something good and happy. Tell yourself that you can do this. Tell yourself that food is good. You will overcome it, sweetheart. It is so hard, i know- but it will be okay.
Question: How Do I Tell My Mom I Want To Get Treatment For My Anorexia? I want to go get treatment for my Anorexia but I don't know how to tell my mom. What do I do? How do I say it so it doesn't sound bad?
Answer: I know this is very tough!! Trust me! You just need to sit her down and say Mom, I need to talk to you about something. I'm anorexic. I want and need to get treatment before I damage my body anymore. I know with your love and support I can get through this. I need professional help tho. PLEASE e-mail me if you need to talk. [email protected]
Question: How to tell my friends that I am going to be going to a residential treatment place for anorexia? They don't even know that I am anorexic.
I am 12 years old, and in one week I have to go live in another state to get treatment for my anorexia.
I am thinking about texting them after my last day of school there. I really don't want to have to say it to them in person. I know they wouldn't understand, and it would just be awkward. What should the text say? Or should I write them a letter?
Answer: I'd write a letter - it will be harder for them to reply immediately afterwards so they won't have the opportunity to blurt out their first response which may or may not be appropriate.
I would just stick to the basics of how long you expect you'll be gone, whether or not you'll be able to contact them while away or not, and let them know that even though you may not have been able to talk to them about anorexia before hand that you'll be willing to answer questions (when you get back).
If you're finding it too difficult, you could always ask your parents to talk to their parents after you've left.
Good luck with recovery!
Question: what is inpatient treatment for anorexia like? what is inpatient treatment for anorexia like? How long are you there for? What kind of procedure do they perform there? What would happen if you refuse to eat? If they attach you to an eating disorder, what happened if you pull it out of you or struggle when they try to put it in. I'm talking about minors? My cousin is 13 and has an eating disorder I'm just trying to learn what inpatient is like.
Answer: You know I have never had this problem or been in for treatment, but I would think, with this being such a life threatening and fragile situation that the staff would be caring, loving and nurturing people. There would be no proceedures as in surgery. They would assess and diagnos any vitamin deficiancies and mineral dificiancies and offer vitamins to get those levels back to a safe level to maintian health as well as life itself. In this day and age, I would think that they would offer infrmation, couseling, and good food choices to help bring them back to health. They would be trained to be compassionate and never pushy, they are there to gently show someone how to save thier own life. Did you mean to say, attach someone to an IV that would feel them supliments? I think you may of. They are not going to strap anyone down and force them to do anything they do not want to do.Those who can slowly come around and take in small doses of assistance and knowledge, most likely will be encouraged to keep going forward, and to those who cannot change and adapt, they will lovinly provide any assistance they can as they watch the person die from starvation. Its sad but so very true, we only see on the news the movie stars , singers and models, there are thousands slowly committing suicide and they really do not understand what they are doing to themselves, its very sad. I would encourage you to encourage them to get help. Its much funner to think of going to the mall and buying cute summer dresses together than you going alone to buy a black dress for her funeral isnt it. Take care.

Question: What kind of professionals work in a Anorexia/Bulimia treatment center? I was wanting to be an Occupational Therapist because I didn't really know what else to do but now realize that working with people with eating disorders is something I would love to get into.
What is the title of the workers there? I realize there is probably a doctor and a psychologist but what else?
Answer: i'm sure they have nutritionists, psychiatrists and social workers there as well.
Question: Where are people sent off to to get treatment for anorexia? My friend was anorexic, and she was taken from school for about a month to get treatment at some sort of clinic. Where do you think she went and what do they do there?
Answer: There are many different places where people with anorexia can be treated. Most hospitals now have an area devoted to mental illness treatment, and some even have an eating disorder treatment ward. There are also other places that specialize in mental illness and/or eating disorder treatment.
There are different ways of treating anorexia. In hospitals, treatment is often focused on getting the person to a good weight, and hopefully getting them to eat. Usually this involves a nasogastric tube (a tube that runs to your stomach through your nose and throat). High calorie "food" goes through that straight into the stomach. There is also the eating side - often the more the person eats, the less they have through the tube, which can be reassuring. Many people with any kind of eating disorder can tell you the exact calorie content of any food, but they can't control how much goes through the nasogastric tube.
In live-in clinics, the person with anorexia will often see a counselor to help them understand why they have anorexia and to hopefully get them to the point where they don't need anorexia anymore. They will see a dietician who will monitor the food they eat, and sometimes a psychiatrist, who will diagnose them with any other mental illnesses they may have (like depression) and prescribe them medicine if it's needed. Often they will see a doctor too, who will monitor they physical side of anorexia and any other illness they may have.
Question: How long is the treatment for Anorexia? What are the early signs and symptoms of anorexia? Is self medication for this illness possible?
Answer: Anorexia treatment will last until a patient's body and mind become healthy. Treatments will focus on both physical and mental rehabilitation.
Question: How to get out of treatment for anorexia early? How can I convince my psychiatrist to let me out of recovery early for anorexia?
Besides gaining weight. I mean geting out without having to reach "target weight" and such.
Ok, well, more or less not have to come in once a month for check ins for who-knows-how-long (when I get to that point) at least
Answer: If your serious about treatment, than there is no early release from treatment. reaching a target weight is reaching normal healthy weight zone for someone your age, height and bone structure. there is no way around this.
I was anorexic as a child, in fact for about 13 years. I have been in recovery for 6 years now. The thoughts always stay with you, and this is something psychiatrists know. Therefore, i dont think there is anything you can do this early on to try to convince your physchiatrist that your ready.
I do hope for your own sake that you want to get better... all anorexia is is a very slow and painful suicide. Ive been there, and been through all its after effects so trust me.
good luck and stay in treatment

Question: Questions on proper treatment for anorexia? I have a friend who is in treatment who is being given so much drugs, that she seems like a zombie. Her family is being prevented from seeing her too often. Is this normal treatment? What do you look for in a quality facility for treatment? The friend has suffered from this before.
Answer: I also suffered from anorexia and i can say that i have never been given so many drugs that i was zombi-like! i was put on an antidepressant but that is all they gave to me. her family should be able to see her! family is a key part in treatment.
at my treatment facility, there was always people to talk to and watch out for you. yes, they supervised you like MAD and pushed you, but in the end it was all worth it. i am so happy that you are looking out for your friend. understand that anorexia is so hard to get through, and you need to support her along the way, which it looks like you are!
her parents may want to contact the facility if this continues....
good luck :)
Question: Can a normal weight person get a treatment for Anorexia? I mean,if that person was very overweight before,and now lost weight threw starving.
But she/he still continues to starve themselves and they have a meldown whenever you try to get them to eat.Yes,that person isnt skeletal skinny YET,but can she/he get a treatment and force feeding procedure?
This person is 17
This is urgent,thank you
Answer: there is a such thing as "eating disorder not otherwise specified" which your friend could be suffering with. it means that he/she isn't significantly underweight like someone suffering with anorexia would be, but they have lost a lot of weight. also, if they're a girl they still get their periods. if this person is anorexic and a girl, she doesn't get her period anymore. to answer your question, yes he/she can still get treatment. it doesn't matter if he's/she's not skeletal skinny. that doesn't make him/her suffer any less than someone who is very thin. this person you know is obviously struggling, and needs to seek professional help. i don't know that they can force feed him/her, but there are other methods of helping someone. this includes something as simple, but crucial, as therapy. eating disorder clinics treat people suffering with anorexia, bulimia, and eating disorder not otherwise specified (ednos). more people treated at these places suffer from ednos than anorexia and bulimia combined because it's so common. good luck... i hope your friend gets the help he/she deserves. make sure you support them as much as possible because they're feeling a lot of emotional pain right now
Question: How Much Weight Do You Have To Gain Before Being Discharged From Inpatient Treatment for Anorexia? Or what percent of ideal weight do they make you get to? I am concerned because i have a small frame and have always been smaller, but im afraid they won't take that into account when deciding my ideal weight.
But aren't there different ideals for each height? Like not just one number, but a range? If someone was 5'4 but they had a smaller frame, would they consider that?
Answer: Of course they will take that into account, if not, they would have some standard number, for example, 150. Not everybody would look great at 150, & they understand that. Somebody at 5 foot would look chubby at 150, compared to somebody at 5'11'', who would look verrryy skinny at 150. They take you, as an individual, in account. They are nurses, not robots.
Question: How do treatment centers for anorexia handle vegetarians? Say you are a vegetarian who just happens to be anorexic, do they force you to eat meat again while in treatment? I believe a person can go vegetarian for all the right reasons and something like this occurs. Im vegetarian by the way so please no nasty jokes. I don't judge you for eating meat so don't judge me from not.
Answer: Congratulations for seeking help. Even though I do not know you, I am proud of you for this. It will be important for you to find a treatment facility that will respect your beliefs. I would assume that most will, however, before you enroll, just give them a call and ensure that their program can be customized to support vegetarianism. They will be upfront with their answers.
Question: How Much Weight Will I Probably Have to Gain Before Being Discharged From Outpatient Treatment for Anorexia? Or what percent of ideal weight do they make you get to? I am concerned because i have a small frame and have always been smaller, but im afraid they won't take that into account when deciding my ideal weight.
Answer: the point is that you shouldn't be concerned about your weight at all, they aren't trying to fatten you up, they want to make sure you are healthy. if you are being treated for anorexia than you are dangerously under weight and they will release you as soon as they can, you will still probably be very thin when they discharge you and will still need to gain more weight after you are discharged
