  • your daughter has Bulimia, and needs help. My suggestion is to try a homoeopathic, as I had great results with one, who treated the mental causes.

  • If she refuses to eat it's anorexia. If she eats then throws up, its bulimia. But she could be throwing up because you are making her eat. If this is something new, maybe look into her friends and what is the popular things with those girls her age. Perhaps she's being teased at school. Girls can be cruel. Often times this is more of a mind thing and would require counseling. But most important talk to her to see whats going on. And be sure to tell her that her body needs food to function. And to consider food as energy rather than fat. Just some thoughts. Here are some links to go to for info. http://www.eatingdisordershelpguide.com/causes.htmlhttp://www.mamashealth.com/anorexia.asp She isn't doing this because of something you did. But she needs your help to not fall into the anorexic pattern. Good Luck!

  • I think you need to speak with your doctor and the school. See if there is anyone who can montior what's she's eating at school. Ask if she can skip gym till she gets to a healthy weight. Show her pictures of what people can become like- explain what will happen if she refuses to eat. Its not pretty xx
