Anorexia Nervosa Connections

Below you will find various relationships to the concept of and potential clinical approaches for anorexia nervosa. It is critical to appreciate that in Chinese Medicine (and most related systems), treatment for "anorexia nervosa" is rarely designed with the resulting "anorexia nervosa" exclusively in mind.

For non-practitioners, we recommend reading treating the "cause" and not the "symptoms" for more on the overall approach and the importance of the TCM diagnostic system in formulating treatment approaches.

Within TCM, "anorexia nervosa", is potentially related to the following diagnostic patterns - spleen and stomach damp heat, spleen blood deficiency, spleen qi deficiency, stomach food stagnation, stomach qi deficiency among many other possibilities and/or layered combinations.
