AYURVEDA PERSPECTIVE ON BINGING MORE THAN 1X MONTHLY

Bingeing is a common and serious symptom of bulimia and binge eating disorder. A binge involves a short period during which the binger consumes abnormally large amounts of food and feels a complete loss of control. This can be followed by a period of "purging" which involves self-induced vomiting, exercise, or food restriction, but this is not always the case. Bingeing overwhelms the body's stomach and forces acidic food through the pyloric valve into the duodenum, which can cause irritation and ulceration. Bingeing also confuses the body and mind, often leading to weight fluctuations, insomnia, gallbladder complications, and feelings of defeat and guilt. Bingeing is thus a serious medical and psychological concern and can quickly lead to imbalance.

Bingeing is often result from restrictive dieting practices and emotional distress. When you fight with your body and try to control it, it is likely to fight back and compel you to binge. The body becomes nervous when it does not receive consistent, adequate nourishment and tries to make up for the lack of nutrition in a binge. Once on the binge/restrict cycle, you may find yourself turning to food whenever you feel uncomfortable, distressed, or upset and may feel a complete loss of control over yourself and your actions. This can cause you to feel disgusted and ashamed of your action.

If caught in the bingeing cycle, the first thing to do is to find support - no one deserve to suffer alone. Ayurveda can help you establish a regular, wholesome diet so that your body does not feel driven to binge. Eating large amounts of processed food is also confusing to the body and can lead to bingeing so you want to create a dietary regime full of natural foods that are recognizable to the body and that your great grandmother might have eaten. Establishing regular meal times and eating real foods reestablishes your body's trust and can mitigate the drive to binge.

Finally, do your best to develop compassion for yourself. You were doing the best that you could and your body is just trying to help itself cope with what seems unmanageable. If you feel caught by feeling disgusted or ashamed of yourself (as can be common with binge eating and bulimia), read our pages on confronting self-disgust and self-loathing.

AVOID ACCUMULATION IN STAGE OF DISEASE 0

BINGING MORE THAN 1X MONTHLY IS IN STAGE OF DISEASE 0 - POTENTIAL CAUSE

Potential causes increase and disturb your imbalanced doshas and biocharacteristics, causing them to accumulate and spiral out of control. For example, if you're overheated and eat a chili pepper, heat may become excessive and cause disease. As a dosha or biocharacteristic accumulates in your body according to your dietary and lifestyle habits, it is more and more likely to cause disease. You can reduce an imbalanced dosha or biocharacteristic in two ways, by removing, or lessening the frequency of aggravating causes from your diet and lifestyle, as well as by favoring balancing diet and lifestyle practices. For example, try eating something as cool as a cucumber when you're overheated, instead of a chili pepper.

HOW AYURVEDA WORKS

ARE YOU WONDERING HOW AYURVEDA CAN HELP YOU?

WHY IS AYURVEDA THE RIGHT SOLUTION?

Ayurveda strengthens the body while opposing disorders. It takes a holistic, systemic approach that looks at the whole body. Ayurveda shows how to interpret signs and symptoms of imbalance, and how to address them using diet, lifestyle adjustments, and herbs. It shows a person how to optimize their health on a continual basis. You can't take the doctor home with you, but you can take Ayurveda home with you. Ayurveda is the most advanced and easy to use home system for self healing.

HOW DOES AYURVEDA WORK?

Ayurveda starts by identifying your body type, which identifies certain tendencies in your body to get sick (as well as identifying your strengths). It uses body type to determine the likely root causes of your disorders. Next, Ayurveda analyzes the nature of your disorder. It fits all your signs and symptoms into a pattern, expressed as a combination of biocharaceristics (gunas). For example, you may have a heat disorder, a cold disorder, or an oily disorder, etc. This simple categorical approach shows you how to correct systemic imbalances and strengthen your body as a whole.

On Joyful Belly, we've created an extensive categorization of food so you can easily match food to your imbalanced biocharacteristics. By eating an optimal diet that balances your biocharacteristics, your whole body is strengthened and the conditions that created the disorder are removed. Once the root causes of the disease are removed, the disease lessens in strength or disappears altogether. Additional remedies - such as herbs and lifestyle practices - focused on the specific disorder, can greatly enhance your healing.
