Bulimia

Bulimia

Bulimia (aka ‘Bulimia Nervosa’) is an eating disorder where people attempt to control their weight by severely restricting the amount of food they eat, then binge eating and purging the food from their body by making themselves vomit or by using laxatives.

This cycle of binging and purging is often triggered as a response to periods of emotional distress and can have serious physical consequences, such as permanent damage to the teeth and hair, kidneys, and the heart.
