Where and How to Treat Anorexia Effectively?

Anorexia is a disaster for the whole family. It is a big suffering for parents who feel themselves helpless. It is not only the type of eating disorder. More importantly, it is also a psychological disorder.

Anorexia is a condition that goes beyond concern about obesity or out-of-control dieting. A person with anorexia often initially begins dieting to lose weight. Over time, the weight loss becomes a sign of mastery and control. The drive to become thinner is actually secondary to concerns about control and/or fears relating to one's body. The individual continues the ongoing cycle of restrictive eating, often accompanied by other behaviors such as excessive exercising or the overuse of diet pills to induce loss of appetite, and/or diuretics, laxatives, or enemas in order to reduce body weight, often to a point close to starvation in order to feel a sense of control over his or her body. This cycle becomes an obsession and, in this way, is similar to an addiction.

That is why anorexia should be treated clinically. Parents get fully engaged into the games which anorexic girls impose on family. So they become fully co-addicted.

Luckily, there is a private clinic in Russia owned by Dr Valentina Fedorova, a highly authorized expert in treating anorexia. For 10 years Dr Fedorova and her colleagues use systematic approach in healing anorexia successfully.

Now wonder, patients gain 6-12 kg during treatment period of 21 days!

Healing your child in a foreign country has a lot of advantages.

Firstly, there happens a disconnection between a worried & co-addicted mother and the anorexic girl. The child’s abnormal thinness causes pain and feeling of guilt at the same time. On the other hand, the girl’s tricks in controlling her weight by using childish mentality gives rise to resentment and annoyance.

There is nothing wrong with these feelings! It is a normal reaction to the intended fading flesh. Statistics states, that 1% of teenage girls in the U.S. develop anorexia and up to 10 percent may die as a result.

Parents feel fury at all sorts of lies anorexic girls use, trying to deceive their families… to continue their obstinate strategies in weight loss… until it becomes a physical and mental disease.

Secondly, being treated in a foreign country is psychologically favorable. It causes a person

  1. to obey healthy rules and requirements
  2. to use intelligence in order to get accommodated according to unusual circumstances
  3. to communicate with fellow patients (the clinic treats from 5-11 anorexic patients at a time).

Thirdly, Dr Valentina Fedorova created ideal conditions for successful treatment.

The clinic itself with green lawns, trees and flowers

looks more like a palace than a medical building.

More than that, the clinic is situated in the residential area of Moscow, where very rich and famous people live.

Clinic’s neighboring villas

No wonder these wealthy people chose this famed “Roubleff area” for their villas.

It is surrounded by pine and birch trees, the air is fresh and healing…

The sky in this area is typically blue, peaceful and beautiful...

You will be surprised to learn, that Russian President’s summer palace is only 5 km from Dr Fedorova’s clinic!

Anyway, the prices for anorexia treatment are moderate.
