History of Bulimia and revolution Become a New Problem

    History of bulimia is old. Even the ancient Romans used to regurgitate the food they eat at the party. They even have a special place for it called "vomitorium". There are many memories of the events in the book of ancient Rome. Roman Emperor Claudius and Vitellius is bulimia.

    Some other cultures like ancient Egyptian purged themselves every month for three consecutive days, using vomiting and Clysters to maintain health. They think that human diseases come from food.

    In Europe during the Middle Ages purgation are used as cures for many diseases and is recommended by your middle age.

    In ancient Greece and Arabia there are also descriptions in texts of binging and purging.



    But all the ancient practices of binging and cleaning are similar but not the same as what we call "bulimia" now. There is no evidence of a drive to thin it is a clear trait in all modern bulimia, even skinny women is not normal for the female form.

    From the evidence that has been reported it is clear that bulimia nervosa as it is presented now is a disease not known until the late 20th century.

    In the 1970s there are cases described in medical literature of the three patients who were interspersed with overeating and under eating classed as anorexia nervosa. One patient vomited and two others took a lot of laxatives to get rid of the food.

    The first description of bulimia nervosa modern published in 1979 by Dr. Russell. He stated in the results of research that eating too much and self-induced vomiting may have been a common practice among otherwise normal female students attending North American universities. He mentioned that the condition was always the most relevant to women.

    There is no doubt that the incidence of bulimia increased significantly in 1980 and came to exceed the incidence of anorexia nervosa.

    There are still many questions remaining about bulimia nervosa.

    Questions like, bulimia nervosa is a new disease or is it the same disease that has been known for centuries, but embody a different version? And what made bulimia increase so significantly in the last few decades? Is the modern pressure to be thin or more like personality traits are inherited or both?

    To conclude, bulimia like simple overeating has been known since ancient times. But the term "bulimia nervosa" can not be applied to the cases recorded in history that was published prior to 1979. Just because the motives in the past to overeat and then different from today's clean and psychological aspects are also different.

    The modern term "bulimia nervosa" means not just the simple practice of binging and clean, now there are certain personality traits behind the term. These traits include addictive tendencies, problems with impulse control, obsession with weight and general looks and certain personality disorders can be associated with the term bulimia nervosa.

    So my own opinion is that bulimia nervosa is a new disease of our time who has emerged as intense pressure to look slim. Also the fact that they are used by many sufferers as a coping mechanism for the additional stress that we have in our lives today.

    Modern medicine as put all the dependence on cognitive behavioral therapy to deal with Bulimia. Although there are some initial success it has now become clear that he failed to some patients as the disease continues to evolve.

    A new way forward in treating the disease is to eliminate the subconscious blockages that have been shown to inhibit and restrain a person from recovery. Because the more one knows about how the mind works medicine has to move with the flow of discoveries and not rely on an outdated methodology.

    But unfortunately throughout history medicine has never moved at a fast speed, so many people who do not find out about new methods will have to suffer in vain to catch drug.
