Anorexia Nervosa, Binge-Eating, and Bulimia
Eating Disorders are characterized by an obsessive focus on food and body image. that generally involve negative, self-critical feelings and thoughts about body weight, size, and shape. They involve eating habits that disrupt daily activities and normal body functions. The desire is to gain control in an attempt to deal with perfectionism by regulating weight and food. Anorexia can be life threatening via heart failure, starvation, or electrolyte imbalance, mineral and nutrient deficiencies. Bulimia is characterized by binge eating (consuming unnaturally large amounts of food) and then purging.
Essential oils such as bergamot, lavender, clary sage, lemon, nutmeg, and ginger can complement the CBD oil, as the aroma has soothing effects that can directly stimulate the amygdala gland, which is part of the emotional center of the limbic system.
The ideal CBD dose for you usually depends primarily on your body weight, but it can also be influenced by other factors, such as your personal body chemistry, your age, and any other health conditions you have. Start with a low dose. Assess how you feel after 1 week of use. If required, adjust dosage weekly until you find your “sweet spot.”
Eating disorders are complex and affect all kinds of people. Risk factors for all eating disorders involve a range of biological, psychological, and sociocultural issues. These factors may interact differently in different people, so two people with the same eating disorder can have very diverse perspectives, experiences, and symptoms.
