Help for Eating Disorders Tucson AZ

There is no abstinence from food. There is only management. This means that individuals who have eating disorders have to learn moderation, and that is very difficult, considerably harder than abstinence.

There is also anorexia nervosa, (which is basically starving yourself… sometimes to death) or bulimia nervosa (which involves inducing regurgitation).

There are a number of eating disorders which could be part of the problem. It’s not just all overeating.
