                               What does an individual needs to survive in his life?
                               Water, air and food! Food is the basic necessity of ever
                               living being. Food is required for growth, development of
                               various organs. Daily intake of food is very useful for
                               maintaining a certain level of proteins, vitamins and
                               carbohydrates. All these are extracted out of the food we
                               eat daily. There is a daily requirement of food and one
                               has to supply in the adequate amount. Only then a health
                               level is maintained. Any kind of imbalance in the food
                               intake leads to various problems in our body. There is a
                               direct connection between the moods of a person and his
                               eating patterns. On a normal day a person can eat food
                               that is required by the body, but when the person is sad
                               or too happy then he tends to either eat more than
                               required or eat lesser.


   So mood swings and stress can directly affect the food intake. Not eating right or
   Eating disorder is a very commonly found scenario these days. This disorder can not
   only be caused due to stress or pressure, but also there are other factors such as
   professional requirements for example the catwalk models are required to be waif thin
   to carry out any outfit with grace and élan. This is one of their criteria to move ahead
   in their career. Secondly, these days everyone wants to look presentable and they go
   to any extent to achieve that right look. They can splurge huge amounts to change
   their wardrobe, shell out money to big time to buy the diet food for losing weight and
   get into a designer outfit, which makes them look and feel confident. Following wrong
   dietary pract ice can be very harmful in long run. It can cause many deficiencies due to
   improper food intake like vitamin deficiency.
The original immunity can also be lost. Various other side effects like losing hair,
malnutrition and pale or anorexic look also accompany unhealthy eating disorders. If it
is not treated early there could be hazardous impact on the individual. There are
various eating disorder centers which offer personalized attention and
individualistic eating disorder help . The main reason of these institutes is to deal
with the root problem. Hence they believe in counseling. They follow cognitive therapy
sessions which give their clients a new perspective towards life by changing their
behavioral patterns. Only mind can rule the eat ing habits, based on this idea the
therapists develop sessions to change the thinking patterns and target at changing the
perspective towards life through this.


Trauma can play culprit in addiction


                                    Trauma is word which causes much damage to our
                                    mind as well as our body. There is a very close
                                    connection between mind and body. When we are
                                    down with fever, we feel dull and drowsy. The normal
                                    cheerfulness is completely vanished into the woods
                                    then. Another example could be when we are so
                                    stressed or our mind is emotional, naturally we feel
                                    tender, our body also does not respond to any activity
                                    with similar enthusiasm, which it would normally do.
                                    mind and body are interconnected with each other
                                    and are inseparable. Both these factors rule each
                                    other.


Trauma can be caused due to physical damage leading to emotional turbulences or
vice a versa. The physical and mental damage caused in trauma is equivalent. This
could cause due to an accident or any distressing incident such as death of someone
loved or losing job etc. these incidents lead to stress and other disorders in life. This
complicated and interconnected emotional and physical turmoil is called trauma.
Trauma cannot be dealt with easily.The person needs external support to get out of
such situations. Some people may not be that fortunate to get the help and support
at the right time, so they seek shelter in the form substance addiction, which
temporarily makes them forget the worries and troubles existing in life. This
addiction can be termed as ptsd addiction, meaning an addiction caused due to
trauma. The full form of this term is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. After a traumatic
event, people often report using alcohol to relieve their symptoms of anxiety,
irritability, and depression. Alcohol may relieve these symptoms because drinking
compensates for deficiencies in endorphin act ivity following a traumatic experience.


Within moments of experiencing a traumatic incident, there is an increase in the level
of endorphins in the brain. During the time of the stress, endorphin levels remain
high and help to numb the emotional and physical pain caused by the trauma.
However, after the trauma is over, endorphin levels gradually decrease and this may
lead to a period of endorphin withdrawal that can last from hours to days. Since
alcohol use increases endorphin activity, drinking following trauma may be used to
compensate this endorphin withdrawal and thus avoid the associated emotional
distress. PTSD addiction treatment and drug addiction treatment is possible
with the help of professional experts which target the mind for recovering from
 trauma as well as addict ion.




                Detecting eating disorder through different ways

Many of the persons perform well under stress. But commonly people succumb to the
stressful situation. There are times when people feel stressed out or over-worked. Also
there are times when they feel defeated, lost and helpless. The only escape co mes to
rescue in a form of a friend. Sometimes they may not get required support of friends
as well. Then like any other human being they turn addiction or eating disorder. The
addictions and disorders can make someone forget their worries for a very short
period of time, once they get back to reality after the effects is reduced, the reality
hits them even harder. The eat ing disorder is somewhat similar to the compulsive
overeating.This is also found in a bulimia nervosa. Binge eating disorder is twice as
common among women as among men. The disorder is found in all ethno -cultural and
racial populations. People who are obese and have binge eating disorder often became
overweight at a very younger age than those without the disorder. They might also
lose and gain back weight more often, or be paranoid about gaining weight, the
fluctuation continues. People with eating disorders cannot be forced to change their
behaviors or beliefs, but one can definitely make a difference by showing little care,
offering support, and encouraging the person to seek professional help. One of the
major characteristics of the people with eating disorders is that they use food to deal
with uncomfortable or painful emotions. Restricting food is used to get a feeling of
being in control.


Overeat ing temporarily soothes sadness, anger, or loneliness Eating disorder quiz
helps in finding out whether someone is actually suffering from this disorder. This is
one of the most preferred and private ways to find out our own faults. There are many
online quiz available which delivers results straight into the mailbox, so that highest
means of confidentiality are maintained.
