Anorexia is a mental illness, as a result of which a person masters an unjustified, pathological desire to lose weight. Patients with anorexia nervosa have sexual fears, an inadequate understanding of their appearance and a distorted attitude towards the patient. “Psychological causes of anorexia. Low self-esteem and perfectionism are among the factors most conducive to the development of anorexia. It often happens that both of these traits are present in one person. Because of what a person of normal weight begins to seem that he is ugly fat. Psychological causes are often influenced by family and internal conflicts. In the presence of a family member or relatives, the risk of developing disorders increases. Known cases when parents found that their daughter suffers from anorexia, only after many years! “Socio-cultural causes of anorexia. In modern society, the cult of extreme slimness reigns, almost thin. Many people do not pay attention to the fact that for their constitution superstructure is abnormal, or that 90-60-90 with their growth will look not just ugly, but also unhealthy.

52. Do you agree that the spread of eating disorders reflects the influence of science and technology on our ways of life today? 53. Examine the phenomenon of individuals who have been specialized as healers, using a mixture of physical and magical remedies – representatives of the so-called category of alternative medicines, for example, in the Philippines. 54. Do you agree that the mind and body can be treated separately? It is impossible to treat the body without treating. These words belong to the ancient Greek philosopher Socrates. In ancient times, the treatment of any disease began with a psychological effect on the patient. The gap between the physical body and its mental state, formed in the system of medical medicine, significantly reduces its authority in conditions when stresses become commonplace. Social shock, negative information (evil eye), increased excitability, depression accompany organic diseases, increase pathologies, and sometimes become the main cause of their appearance. Official medicine was not ready for a surge of social shocks in society. The competence of the specialist doctor of the psyche of the patient is still not included. 55. Do you agree that trained medical specialists are considered the only experts in the treatment of disease? I do not agree with this opinion, since not everyone with a medical education can work adequately. Many doctors only aggravate the patient's health, there were cases when an absolutely healthy person began to get sick often due to improperly prescribed treatment. Also now there are healers and healers who treat far better than current doctors. Unfortunately, modern medicine is difficult to trust in our time.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
