Everything You Need To Know About Bulimia Nervosa or Bulimia


Sometimes in our life the desire to look good takes us on a wrong path. This could be easily understood with an example of buying expensive clothes. We often buy expensive clothes not for us but just to convince others that we can afford it. Another example is diet. Sometimes it is really not required but still we do it just to please others. Both the above examples have a toll on our pocket and health respectively. In this article today we are going to learn about a medical condition in which something similar happens like the above examples: in order to look good for others patients start hurting him in a certain way.

Binge eating


Bulimia nervosa or bulimia is a medical condition in which the subject first does binge eating followed by vomiting which he induces himself in order to get rid of extra calories, in fear of gaining weight. This does not stop here and other methods are also used to achieve this goal of controlling or losing weight such as laxatives abuse, diuretics, strict dieting, excessive exercising etc. Girls are more prone to develop bulimia nervosa than boys.


Following are the symptoms of bulimia nervosa:

  • Self induced vomiting especially after a binge eating
  • Using weight loss products, though the present weight is within normal limits.
  • Constant fear of gaining weight
  • Fasting in between the meals
  • Binge eating
  • Feeling of guilt after eating


There is no specific known cause for this condition. It usually starts in the late teens or early adulthood. Some risk factors are there like emotional stress, anxiety, dieting etc.


A physician is able to diagnose a case of bulimia nervosa merely with the help of the history of the complaints given by the patient and his attendants like eating habits, weight management methods, psychological evaluation to know your perception about body shape and weight.


The spectrum of the treatment of bulimia nervosa in allopathy does not seem too wide. It is very limited to prescribing antidepressants and counselling of the patient.

Ayurvedic point of view of Bulimia nervosa

According to the ancient Ayurvedic concepts every system be it digestive system, excretory system, nervous system is controlled by a channelized system. These channels are called srotas. And the site of the mind carrying channel is Hridaya (The heart). Manovaha srotas is something which governs the actions of the mind. Any type of stimulus like emotional stress, jealousy, lack of care could affect this channel and result into its dushti. So to deal with this manovaha srotas dushti the basic steps of treatment are Dhee (proper use of intellect), Dhairya (encouraging someone), and Atmadi vijnanam (to realise one’s own importance). All these three basic steps of treatment of manovaha srotas dushti could be easily understood in bulimia nervosa. Dhee that is proper use of intellect, this is how a patient could be counselled about the importance of a balanced diet. Dhairya is encouraging someone that is giving positivity to the patient about the good outcomes of the treatment. Third is Atmadi vijnanam in which a patient is made to realize his importance, so in bulimia nervosa a patient will be motivated to respect his/her identity and not to mould it for others.
