Is the eating disorder a psychological illness or a physical illness?
Commonly, eating disorder is regarded as a psychological illness.
Because the psychological problem will arouse the following symptoms:
- Excessive food intake（Bulimia）
- Vomiting up all the food after eating excessively（Binge eating and vomiting）
- （Because of caution on calorie.etc）Unable to take in enough food（Anorexia）
However, is it appropriate to assert that the eating disorders are psychological illness only?
There are 5 million patients from eating disorder base on speculation.
Base on the survey on national epidemic diseases carried out by a scientific research team studying central eating disorders from the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, the number of patients from eating disorders was 5 million in 1980. It has reached 200,000 in the last-half year of 1990 after a rapid growth of 4 times.
In Japan, during the period of high growth in 1970s, eating disorders were regarded as diseases attributed to graceful girls from wealthy families. However, nowadays, the ill population has already reached 5 million. It has been a common occurrence compared with the situation 40 years later.
In these circumstances, multitudinous patients who were suffering from eating disorders gathered to our clinic all around the nation.
Many of these patients reflected that “Although they felt better after receiving psychotherapy on eating disorders in the psychological medicine department or the psychosomatic medicine department. However, I didn’t find any relief from the symptom of bulimia.” Or “There were not any improvement after I had been given prescription medicine. More than that, I was fear of taking medicine because of side-effect.” Aiming to solve psychological problems, the patients received psychotherapy without any improvement. Or they refused to take prescription medicine from the psychological medicine department or the psychosomatic medicine department. There were many patients reflecting so.
Eating disorder is defined as a kind of mental disorder. In the psychological medicine department or the psychosomatic medicine department of a hospital, psychotherapy or pharmacotherapy is usually taken as the standard treatment.
However in Clinic HYGEIA, such kind of treatment will be never carried out.
Because we consider that the reasons of eating disorder are not only on psychology, but also on physics.
The reason of attendant symptoms of eating disorder, such as dysphoria, tension, depression, irritability, insomnia, etc, can be also found on physics.
A common physical reason was discovered after we had carried out more than 60 projects of biochemistry detection as well as more than 5 hours of glucose tolerance test: modern malnutrition and hypoglycemia.
Every time when patients inquire the causes of eating disorder, they usually would be answered “extreme diet”. In fact, the causes includes fasting and anorexia occurred by stress, not limits to extreme diet. When patients lose weight substantially and fall into starvation, they will be attacked by eating disorder.
Paroxysm of eating disorder usually exists in adolescence. Many patients who are fare to inform families and have little knowledge on causes and treatment of eating disorder have to suffer from bitterness for 10 years, 20 years or even longer. It’s really a pity. Clinic HYGEIA will present you both a better understanding on the causes of eating disorder and a secure treatment to help you soon recover psychologically and physically.
Clinic HYGEIA will guard health of females.

There are many kinds of diseases in the world that can be divided into two broad categories: organic disease and functional disease. Because modern medicine is more appropriate to cure organic diseases, while most of the functional diseases are considered as reason unclear or psychological disorder.
Eating disorder possesses physical symptoms as functional diseases; meanwhile, it also has clear reason as organic diseases.
