The Aims of Anorexia Treatment

Aug 17, 2007
If you have a friend or relative who has anorexia nervosa, it can be useful to familiarize yourself with different aspects of the treatments that they may be receiving, or that a doctor is likely to recommend. One of the main aims of anorexia treatment is to help the patient to gain weight, and prevent further weight loss in patients who are already at a very low body weight. This treatment can take many shapes and forms but the help and support of friends and family are usually an important factor in helping the patient to achieve this aim.
Another important aspect of anorexia treatment, is to prevent the patient using means such as vomiting or laxatives to reduce their weight. These can cause very serious complications and have a lasting effect on the health of the sufferer and it is very important to try to address these concerns and to help the patient see that it is not in their interests to do this.
Along with the main condition there are often other aspects to the disease that can form part of the anorexia treatment. Very often people who have this condition can also suffer from conditions such as severe depression that also need treatment.
One of the most important aspects of any anorexia treatment is to provide a good and effective structure to eating patterns. This can help them to avoid the cycle of avoiding food and meal times and help them to get into a more healthy diet, while eating sensibly so that they can improve their general health and well-being.
Educational anorexia treatment can also help with dietary advice and planning sensible meals that the sufferer will enjoy and look forward to. This can involve a good deal of interaction with the sufferer, so that they feel they have an involvement in the healing process and they can make choices based on their own personal preferences and tastes.
There can of course be many other aspects to anorexia treatment such as therapy and cognitive behavioral treatments. It is important that a qualified health professional should be involved in the process of deciding which is the most appropriate treatment for the patient and what is the best way to go about it to achieve the maximum benefit. If you have a friend or relative who has anorexia, it is always useful to find out as much as you can about the subject, so that you can provide the best help and support for them.
