4 Essential Signs that Your Teen Might Have Anorexia Nervosa

4 Essential Signs that Your Teen Might Have Anorexia Nervosa

Privacy for your kids and being able to provide care for them is a tough balancing act -especially when a dangerous but often well-hidden disorder like anorexia nervosa is involved. At a time when children start to demand more personal privacy, there is also a cheater chance for developing potential behavioral and mental health diseases than during the early childhood years.

Anorexia nervosa is the most dangerous mental health disorder – shockingly, there is an almost 20 percent chance untreated anorexia nervosa will result in premature death.  Many people are familiar with the basics of anorexia nervosa, many of the early symptoms are unfamiliar and subtle.  By catching the symptoms of anorexia nervosa disorder early, parents can give their teenagers the greatest gift possible – a healthy, recovered life free of anorexia nervosa.

With an average onset of age 18, the need for anorexia nervosa treatment may become apparent as young as 12 or 13 – there have even been cases observed in girls as young as 6 years old.  Here are four signs your teen (or tween) may have a problem:

  1. Compulsive Exercising

Virtually every person with anorexia nervosa has a distorted body image.  They, contrary to all evidence, think they are “too fat,” and that they need to take measures to avoid gaining weight.  In addition to the well-known avoidance of eating, this can also manifest in excessive exercise.Of course, athletics and exercise are important at all ages.Anorexia-related obsessive exercise can put strains on the body, though.This can cause lots of medical complications in later years, affecting the knees, feet and other joints as well as the heart and lungs. Signs that exercise might be turning compulsive include exercising in bad weather, skipping social events to exercise, or trying to work out even when injured.

 

  1. Food Rituals and Lessening Appetite

One of the earliest signs of a disordered relationship with food and eating is when a child begins to engage in foot rituals.  There are lots of ways this might manifest, but they usually get more elaborate and complicated as time goes on.  Some common rituals might include pushing foods around on the plate, refusing to eat foods if they touch other kinds of food on the plate, refusing to eat certain parts of the meal like more rare parts of the meat or the crust of a slice of pizza, or eating foods only in a certain order (meat, starch, vegetable, for example).  Of course, most of these are innocuous on their own but combined with other unusual behaviors, it might indicate that your teen needs to consider anorexia nervosa treatment.

 

  1. Dieting and Counting Calories

Experts at anorexia nervosa treatment centers who treat teenagers as young as 11 years old have noticed that their clients often count calories obsessively and engage in diets.  While healthy eating should always be encouraged, for growing children a balanced diet is essential for growth and mental/emotional development. Correspondingly, diets and strict caloric intake restrictions are usually not appropriate at that age.

 

  1. Continued and Excessive Weight Loss

This is the most obvious sign of anorexia nervosa (although weight loss can come from a variety of illnesses). As time goes on, people with anorexia nervosa will restrict their food intake to the point where they cannot maintain viable body weight. For teenagers and smaller children, it can severely slow or even halt growth and development. If weight loss continues for 6 months or your child is noticeably emaciated, don’t hesitate.

 

There Is Always Hope

Anorexia nervosa affects almost one percent of the female population, and that might even be underreported. However, an anorexia diagnosis isn’t a cause to lose hope.  There are many options for help, most notably from a professional anorexia nervosa treatment center.  If you’re a parent who is concerned that your daughter may be developing anorexia nervosa, keep an eye out for these early warning signs – and reach out to her sooner rather than later.

How to Take CBD Oils

How to Take CBD Oils

The cannabis plant has long been known as the plant that can be used as a drug to get high. However, this plant contains different types of cannabinoids, some that have proven to be very useful to the human body.

Cannabidiol is one of the useful components that can be extracted from the cannabis plant. The use of this oil is associated with numerous benefits. Medically, it has only been proven to have the ability to be helpful to epilepsy patients. However, it is also said to have other positive effects on other conditions, especially those associated with the nerves and inflammation.

There are four different ways of taking CBD oils. All these methods deliver the same results, albeit at different speeds.

Inhalation

Inhaling the CBD oils is an effective way of taking it. When you inhale the oil, it goes to your lungs and is immediately absorbed into your bloodstream. Smoking and vaping are the two ways you can inhale the oil.

Smoking

Smoking CBD oils is done using an oil rig that looks like a water pipe. This rig has a chamber where you pour your oil. The chamber is first heated before the oil is introduced.  This produces a smoke that is then inhaled. Smoking CBD oils makes it easy for you to absorb it into your system faster. It also enables you to manage how much of the oil you consume.

Vaping

You can use a vaporizer pen to vape CBD oil. For people not familiar to vaping, buying a vaping starter kit can be helpful. You can also get vape pens and the oil from vsavi.co.uk. This method of consuming CBD oils is an excellent alternative to anyone who prefers inhaling it but hates smoking. It still delivers maximum effects within a short time. Vaping also enables you to control your dosage.

Application balms or topical creams

It is possible to take CBD oils by applying them on your skin as a skin cream, ointment, or balm. This is the easiest method for most people as it does not require special tools to be done. You get the CBD oil topical treatment and rub it on your skin as recommended. This method of consuming CBD oils is useful in the treatment of headaches, muscle soreness, and skin conditions such as acne.

Using the sublingual method

CBD oils are available in the form of tinctures. These come in small bottles that have a dropper. You squeeze the recommended dosage under your tongue and leave it there for it to be absorbed into your system. After around 30 seconds, you swallow the oil. CBD oils consumed through the sublingual method take longer to deliver the effects as compared to the other two methods mentioned above. If you decide to try CBD be sure to check out these “Medterra discount codes“.

As oral capsules and edibles

CBD oils are manufactured in the form of capsules. One can buy the capsules from a certified dealer and take them as they would any other medication.

You can also get this oil in the form of edible gummy bear or lollipops. This form of consuming CBD oils can be too potent for some users.

Whichever method you prefer to take your CBD oil, you can be sure that you will enjoy the benefits associated with using these oils.
