Life Works – the leading specialist in Bulimia treatment.
Bulimia is an eating disorder characterized by cycles of binging and purging. Bulimia sufferers eat far beyond the point of feeling full, followed by an episode of purging. This process of bingeing and purging is highly disruptive and can cause, chronic gastric reflux, ulcers, tooth decay, kidney damage, chest pain, infertility cardiac arrhythmia, and death.
Bulimia is often accompanied by guilt and depression and other disorders which makes many bulimics extremely secretive. Additionally, because they usually maintain an average body weight, bulimia can be difficult to detect in others.
If you are ready to start your recovery, please call Life Works at 0800 081 0700 or fill out our contact form.
What are the signs & symptoms of Bulimia?

Other less visible symptoms of Bulimia include an obsession with food, fear or embarrassment about eating sugary or fatty foods in front of other people and constantly counting calories.
