Bulimia takes a considerable toll on the body. Physical healing and self-care practices are critical in the recovery process.

Cycles of bingeing and purging can render damage to the following:

  • Esophagus
  • Stomach
  • Teeth
  • Intestines
  • Kidneys
  • Heart

In addition, those experiencing co-occurring mental health or substance use disorders tend to be at greater risk for medical issues and relapse. It’s important to treat each condition appropriately — balancing therapies, support, and assistive medications, and making comprehensive plans for continued healing once inpatient treatment has been completed.
