At least 30 million people suffer from an eating disorder in the US and Anorexia has the highest fatality rate of any mental illness. Anorexia is an eating and mental disorder characterized by low weight and fear of increased weight. Anorexic people are keen to restrict their daily diet, they avoid certain foods or eat them in low amounts. Additionally, Anorexia sufferers tend to exercise excessively, use laxatives or induce vomiting.
The physical signs of Anorexia include extreme weight loss, dry or yellowish skin, thinning hair and nails and swelling of arms or legs. Symptoms of Anorexia include fatigue, insomnia, constipation and many other physical and emotional issues. Treatment for Anorexia include psychiatric therapy, nutritional therapy and prescribed medications like antidepressants.
Medications for Anorexia include Citalopram, Fluoxetine and Olanzapine. Each of the prescribed medications contain negative side effects that include memory issues, headache, drowsiness, vision changes, dry mouth, increased sweating, numbness or tingling, nausea, diarrhea, fast heartbeat, insomnia, cold symptoms, sexual problems andtremors or shaking.
Studies have shown that normal functioning of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) is impaired in Anorexia patients and using CBD focuses on fixing this system in the human brain. According to research the endocannabinoid system (ECS) is responsible for regulating how humans relate to food.
Anorexia may be linked to endocannabinoid deficiency and consuming CBD infused products may provide a healthy dose in people with the deficiency, as well as improving symptoms without the negative side effects of prescribed medications.
