It helps patients to return to normal eating habits and strengthen their self-esteem and respect to their own bodies.

Mental bulimia

Bulimia nervosa is a psychological disorder in which the sufferer has repeated bouts of binge eating, followed by feelings of guilt and the need to induce vomiting, use laxatives or other ways to get rid of the accumulated food. The reasons for developing this disorder may vary, including stress, low self-esteem, anxiety and depression. The treatment for bulimia includes psychology, nutritional counselling, and medication if necessary. Family and friend´s support is also important to help the sufferer overcome the problem. Bulimia can be a very serious disease, so it is important to seek professional help if you are experiencing symptoms of this disorder.

Binge eating disorder

Binge eating is a psychological disorder when the sufferer has repeated bouts of binge eating without any control over the amount of consumed food. These attacks are accompanied by strong feelings of guilt, shame and inadequacy. The reasons for developing this disorder can include stress, trauma, low self-esteem, anxiety and depression. Treatment for binge eating disorder includes psychology, nutritional counselling, and support from family and friends. The most important is to help the sufferer to start controlling his food intake, strengthen self-esteem and building the body respect.

Sometimes binge eating can be triggered not only by emotional factors, but also by physical hunger and low blood glucose level.

This cycle can lead to a vicious circle of overeating and can be difficult to break.


Orthorexia is a psychological disorder when the sufferer has an obsession with eating healthy food. A person with this disorder is convinced that certain foods are healthy, while others are harmful and must be eliminated from the diet. This can lead to extreme dietary restriction including an exacting and often unsustainable eating regime. People with this disorder can be severely limited in their daily lives and their mental and physical health can be endangered, for example due to insufficient nutrient intake. Orthorexia treatment usually involves psychology and nutritional counselling aimed at regaining a healthy attitude to food and eating.


Bigorexia, also known as muscle dysmorphia, is a mental disorder in which the individual has an obsession to develop muscles and achieve as much muscle growth as possible. The individual’s build could be already normal or exceptionally large and muscular. Bigorexia can have a negative impact on the mental health of the sufferer, who can become socially isolated and depressed if he does not feel like achieving his goals. Treatment involves psychology and support from nutrition and fitness specialists to help the sufferer improve his relationship with his body and learn to train in a healthy and sustainable way.
