Every day it becomes more difficult to treat this disease. In the most advanced cases, you need to see a doctor, otherwise the sick person may simply die. Getting rid of the disease in itself is not difficult, it is much more difficult to convince a person to start it, because the treatment will lead to a set of extra pounds. And this is exactly what the anorexic is afraid of.
To cure this disease, you first need to adjust your diet. The patient should receive various vitamins and macronutrients. His diet should include fruits, vegetables, dairy products, nuts and meat. You need to eat often, but in small portions. Moreover, you can skip meals, because this will only increase your appetite.
Anorexic people also need to play sports (but not very much, 2 times a week for 30-40 minutes), go for walks, take natural sedatives. To get rid of this disease as quickly as possible, you should eat as many fiber-rich foods as possible. These are vegetables, berries and fruits. Sour grapes and apples are especially useful, because these products induce appetite. Fiber is difficult to digest, which means it promotes the release of a large amount of gastric juice, which has a beneficial effect on the work of the entire digestive tract.
Also, you need to eat spices and herbs that whet your appetite. But the most important thing is to control the actions of the anorexic, because the sick person will refuse treatment to the last. And it can even be deceiving when it comes to the amount of food eaten.
