Anorexia Nervosa is a very serious disorder, and is much more complicated than a loss of appetite, it indicates a physiological aversion to food. The disorder usually occurs in adolescent boys and girls who have a fear of becoming fat and hold a distorted impression of their own body image.
Anorexia Nervosa is characterised by rapid weight loss and inevitably leads to body weakness and general apathy.
Anorexia Nervosa has been treated by homeopathy, it requires detailed specific prescribing of the "right" homeopathic remedy.
Trial and error or shotgun prescribing does not work, and therefore we don't recommend self-medication. In fact, self-medication will complicate the overall symptom picture.
Below are only some of the remedies we may prescribe, please note how important the individual symptom picture is. Only when all symptoms, aggravation or amelioration are taken into consideration can a specific homeopathic remedy be selected.
A further consideration is given to the potency of the remedy.
