Meditation for Anorexia
Meditation puts us on the path for anorexia recovery by making us feel more comfortable with ourselves, and enables us to rediscover our true selves without being defined by our weight or looks. The dysmorphic tendencies that characterise anorexia also dissipate as our perception refines and this allows us to see a much more accurate picture of ourselves when we look in the mirror.

- The problem
Anorexia is one of the most common eating disorders.
It is defined by a dominating fear of gaining weight and the subsequent attempts to exert control over this area of your life. Symptoms include restricting food intake, excessive weight loss, lying about what you’ve eaten and how much you weigh, and strict rituals around eating.
The causes include an intersection of genetics, life experiences, psychology and personality traits. Ultimately, however, anorexia has its roots in various cognitive imbalances and perceptual errors that become more harmonised when we meditate.
