Eating disorder

The mental state of an individual largely governs his social behavior, his physical health and also his overall personality. If an individual is not sound mentally then there are possibilities of him generating some kind of disorders or getting addicted to harmful things.

Eating disorder is one of the many different disorders that are likely to be seen in teenagers as well as some grown ups. Eating disorder may tend the child to eat more than the required proportions or also eat very less. The second type is more common and its types that are most commonly seen are ‘anorexia nervosa’ and ‘bulimia nervosa’. Eating disorder is said to be seen more often in girls as compared to boys. The reason is; the kids tend to be more conscious towards their appearance, weight and looks. This is largely due to the social pressure of remaining thin and not overweight to be neglected by others.

The causes of eating disorder are also said to be their negative approach towards themselves and even extreme emotions and feeling of loneliness. If the eating disorder within an individual prevails for a long period, it can even lead to the death of oneself. It is also assumed that biological or genetic factors do also contribute towards contracting this disorder.

But the best thing is that eating disorder is completely curable. Eating disorder can be prevented by inculcating self-confidence in your child and also by educating them about the nutrition and proper healthy attitudes.
