Anorexia Treatments



1. Underweight people need anorexia help.

False
Anorexia treatments are not for every individual who is underweight. People with anorexia who need assistance are at least 15% below their ideal body weight and refuse to maintain a normal weight for their height. Not everyone who is low weight has this problem. It is people who are purposefully refusing to eat to lose weight that need medical help.


2. Those with intense fear of gaining weight need anorexia help.

True
Anorexia treatments are for those individuals who diet to the point of starvation due to the fear of weight gain. They helps people who constantly think about how many calories and fat grams are in food and attempt to control eating 24 hours a day and seven days a week. Those with this problem or disease are hungry, but do not eat because of the fear. Without proper treatment they could die.


3. Most people who need anorexia help were once overweight.

False
The majority of individuals who need anorexia treatment are not overweight, but they have a serious body image problem in their mind. They usually refuse to accept they need medical assistance because they see themselves as fat even if they are very thin. In some cases, the person will accept they are thin but do not realize the danger of the illness and accept that they should seek medical care.


4. Anorexia treatment becomes more difficult the longer you wait.

True
Anorexia help can assist someone in overcoming eating disorders and restore a healthy weight. However, the longer abnormal eating behaviors persist without treatment, the more difficult it can be to overcome the disorder and its effects on the body. Many programs or plans are comprehensive due to the complex interaction of emotional and psychological problems in eating disorders.


5. Treatment for this disease is not something God is concerned about.

False
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 - What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
