CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Jan. 13, 2014 - PRLog -- Chiropractors can help people suffering from bulimia nervosa. The chiropractic approach to health care, focusing on the functioning of the nervous system, can help alleviate the symptoms that people with bulimia suffer.

Bulimia nervosa is an eating disorder that affects mostly girls and women 12 to 30 years old though there are cases involving men suffering from this condition. It is known to be caused by obsession with body fat and perfection as well as (sometimes unreasonable) fear of obesity. Aside from the lower than normal weight in some cases, the disorder is characterized by physical as well as emotional symptoms that can significantly affect quality of life. People with this problem tend to have extreme food cravings and binges followed by purging, obsession with exercise, depression, suicidal tendencies, and inability to cope with stress. They also suffer irregular or no monthly periods (in the case of women), fatigue, dizziness, and physical problems resulting from frequent vomiting. Complications that may arise due to lack of or ineffective treatment include amino acid imbalances, food allergies and nutritional deficiencies especially zinc.

Alternative approaches have been known to provide effective bulimia treatment instead of or aside from the usual medication and psychotherapy. Nutritional therapy uses zinc supplements to alleviate symptoms of bulimic persons diagnosed as zinc deficient. Another helpful approach is diet management which involves consumption of whole and protein-rich foods, following a regular eating schedule, and avoidance of allergy-causing foods as well as refined carbohydrates and sugars. Other therapies for self-care and home care (supervised by a qualified health professional) include homeopathy, constitutional hydrotherapy, biofeedback training, hypnotherapy and light therapy.

Chiropractic care focuses on restoring the proper functioning of the nervous system, particularly, the spinal column, to maintain or restore the healthy balance in the body. Spinal and soft tissue manipulation (muscle and deep tissue) by a chiropractor can be effective in relieving the symptoms of bulimia. Chiropractic also increases immunity and restores hormone level balance to treat patients with allergies, gastrointestinal problems, depression and suicidal thoughts. In Charlotte NC, ChiroCarolina can help patients find out if chiropractic care can address the symptoms of bulimia. Unless these chiropractors find that other medical approaches would be better, people suffering from bulimia may be able to get their healthy life back through chiropractic care.
