Is anorexia a purely medical problem or is it a sin?
QUESTION: is anorexia a purely medical problem or is it a sin?
ANSWER: Nutritional problems, so-called eating disorders, are far more common than most of us realize. The age of these disorders is steadily decreasing; they cover not only girls, but also boys, and in more or less obvious forms – and adults. The basis of the treatment of anorexia and other similar disorders is psychotherapy, but doctors of different profiles are also involved in this process – therapists and endocrinologists, nutritionists and psychiatrists, gastroenterologists and gynecologists.
