What Is Bulimia?
The word bulimia comes from the Greek words “boulimos” and “haima,” meaning to have a ravenous hunger. People with this disorder suffer from an obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) related to food, weight, and body image.
Types of Bulimia
The three main types of bulimia are binge/purge type; continuous purge type; and non-purging type.
Binge/Purge Type: This type is where the individual binge eats and then purges, either through self-induced vomiting or the use of laxatives. This is a common form of bulimia.
Continuous Purge Type: This variant is very similar to binge/purge type, but the purging may take place in more discreet ways, such as through excessive exercise or the use of diuretics.
Non-Purging Type: The individual who has this form of bulimia has no periods where they binge and then purge, but instead focuses on restricting food intake and/or engaging in excessive exercise.
Bulimia Signs and Symptoms
Some of the signs of bulimia are swollen cheeks, puffy eyes, dry mouth and throat, sore throats, or gum problems. Bulimia is an illness with serious consequences that affect the mind as well as the body.
The typical signs of bulimia include rapid weight loss, teeth decay from vomit, and frequent need to go to the bathroom. The symptoms of bulimia are not obvious because it is hard to know when someone might have the urge to purge as it is usually done secretly.
The bulimia signs also include:
rapid weight loss, sometimes coupled with excessive exercise and/or use of appetite suppressants
- decaying teeth and stomach pains from vomiting
- -frequent need to go to the bathroom
- increased frequency of bowel movements
- brittle nails and hair loss due to malnutrition

Talking therapies are the most common form of treatment and generally last up to 12 weeks. They can be done on their own or as part of a wider programme including medication, exercise, and dietary advice.
Talking therapies can help people to better understand their thoughts and feelings, develop new skills for coping with negative emotions, build a support network of friends or family members who do not have an eating disorder, and change their damaging eating habits.
There are many different types of talking therapies, each with its own specific goals. The most commonly used approaches are cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), family therapy, and interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT).
A person’s thoughts are the way they make sense of their world. The thoughts can be realistic or unrealistic, but what is most important is that the person believes them.
Nutrition and Diet Management
One of the most important aspects of bulimia treatment is nutrition and diet management. A balance between nutritious food intake and calorie restrictions must be found in order to promote weight restoration, avoid malnutrition, and maintain a stable mood.
It can be very difficult to get through an eating disorder on your own. If you are struggling, it is important to reach out for help and support from family members. They may not know how to help you, but they can be a great support system for your recovery.
PROMIS Bulimia Treatment Centre UK has an eating disorder treatment program that provides therapy and counselling sessions as well as a medical treatment option for those who are struggling with an eating disorder. In our recovery process, clients learn to repair relationships and build strong and positive networks with family and friends. Family members and loved ones are given the tools to support recovered people from this disorder so that they do not have to turn back to unhealthy coping mechanisms again.
