The "Uni-Rexia" Phenomenon – Finally a Treatment That Works
University should be the most exciting and enjoyable time of your life.
…But it can also be lonely, scary and miserable.
Recent studies have shown that past sufferers of eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia often relapse at University. The lack of parental supervision and routine, plus the pressure associated with a dramatic change in lifestyle, can lead to students developing dangerous and potentially life threatening beliefs and habits around food and body image.
- "Over-achievers" who shone at school and college now find themselves a "little fish in a big pond" and can seek refuge in reclusive behaviour and disordered eating.
- The hedonistic lifestyle associated with student living, along with the focus placed on being attractive, can drive students to an eating disorder as a coping mechanism.
- Being away from familiar surroundings, parents and old friends can make students feel insecure and lonely and this can manifest itself in negative body image.
If you are a student suffering from anorexia, bulimia, compulsive eating or negative body image, Winning Minds can help.
Neural recoding can allow you to conquer your demons and be free to enjoy your student experience.
You may find this Understanding Eating Disorders CD useful. This is a 1.5 hour recording of an interview between Mark and Natasha in which they outline what Eating Disorders really are, the common sources for them, why traditional modern medicine approaches won’t work and how and why Neural Recoding does work.
This CD is ideal for ED sufferers who are frustrated by the current medical approach and can’t see a way out; for parents whose children have ED’s to give them an understanding of what their child is going through; for ex-sufferers who have beaten the behaviour, but who still have extreme anxiety around food.
