Being overweight is a global problem that needs to be addressed, so that it does not endanger long-term treatment and health and well-being in general. More than 1,4 billion adults over the age of 20 have been diagnosed with inflammatory weight worldwide. In contrast, more than 200 million men and 300 million women suffer from obesity and the health problems it causes. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 40 million children under the age of 5 are obese.*
Disorders caused by eating addiction are related to the patient's internal feeling of insecurity, where patient feels the increased satisfaction of various needs when taking food. No matter how much the patient eats, there is a feeling of hunger and emptiness, as well as a desire to continue the relevant compulsive activities, even if afterwards becomes embroiled in self-blame. On the other hand, a positive feeding experience in childhood creates a self-image of a loved, loving and satisfied person in relations with oneself and others.
People with this experience in the early stages are more likely to develop a variety of addictions, such as increased eating to compensate for anxiety, guilt and inferiority. As a result, patients often face confusion and condemnation from relatives and bystanders, which forces the patient to continue eating-related abnormal behaviors.
Obesity can be caused by psycho-emotional experiences such as prolonged anger, dissatisfaction, boredom and emptiness, feelings of danger, prolonged tension, loss or separation from an emotionally close person.
