Anorexia treatment in Spain

Asking for help is the first step in overcoming Anorexia. This disorder affects several facets of the person. On the one hand, physical health suffers due to the restriction of food. On the other hand, there is significant emotional suffering: episodes of anxiety, depressive states, low self-esteem, etc. As a social consequence, isolation is the most obvious sign.

What are usually the first symptoms of anorexia?

  • Weight loss in a short period of time.
  • Following a slimming diet despite being at or below a healthy weight.
  • Excessive physical exercise.
  • Dizziness or fainting.
  • Physical and emotional isolation.

At Ita Salud Mental we specialise in the treatment of eating behaviour, especially in difficult situations that have proved resistant to treatment.

To do this, we have a multidisciplinary team that carries out a personalised treatment that includes all the affected areas and their family environment.
