Bulimia

Bulimia is closely related to anorexia. Sufferers of bulimia, who are usually young women in their late teens and early twenties, indulge in secret bouts of bingeing on all sorts of food and then take large doses of laxatives and make themselves vomit, in order to stop themselves gaining weight.

Chinese Medicine regards bulimia as caused by a weakness in the spleen and stomach. The bingeing and vomiting with bulimia cause further damage to the liver. Physically it is very important to strengthen the digestion so that when the patient does eat, she will not feel so uncomfortable, and will enjoy the food more.

Chinese Medicine Tea, made from hawthornberry, rice sprouts, wheat sprouts and even chicken gizzard, are helpful. Chinese Medicine remedies like the Six Gentlemen can also help to strengthen the spleen and the stomach.
