When my daughter nearly died in hospital from Anorexia-Bulimia I was absolutely determined to find a cure for this dreadful disease. Now a few years later she is completely healthy - physically and emotionally, and I am very proud of her and myself for what we've achieved.
Even a doctor was surprised by the effectiveness of the treatment I discovered and now she recommends this treatment to her anorexia- bulimia sufferers.
Getting the right help for anorexia-bulimia isn’t easy but I found 25 things you should know about it.
Why you may ask? Because most people relapse and suffer again, even after repeated treatment programs and hospital stays but if they understand the reasons why this is they would not.
Medical literature often characterizes anorexia-bulimia as "cunning” and" baffling.” but it doesn’t have to be that way, so how do you find the best treatment possible?
You may ask how do I know this?Well I have been exactly where you are now with my daughter.
My name is Karen Phillips and I am the mother of a girl (Amy) who suffered from severe Anorexia Bulimia since age 13. Her battle with this disorder lasted nearly 10 years. Read our story below.
She nearly died in hospital once but luckily survived. And it was this episode that became a turning point for both of us. I promised myself I would do whatever it took to find the right treatment for Anorexia-Bulimia regardless of the cost, and I did.
I am now offering an individual home treatment program I developed during the years of battling with Amy's anorexia-bulimia to help as many people as I can.
But not only that I have the full support of a medical doctor who was also an anorexia-bulimia sufferer herself. But more importantly she also cured herself using similar neuroplastictic methods. Between us you now have a full treatment program that works.
Karen and Amy's story.
Well, I guess it was 14 years ago I started to notice something was not right with Amy. She had
Amy at 12
just turned 12 when I caught her always looking at herself in the mirror. She would ask me if I thought she put on weight. I told her of course not, she always looked just right to me for her age.
You know, I never even thought anything was wrong. I took it as just being a teenage thing and really thought no more about it. I remember myself in those teenage years worrying about my looks and going on diets and silly stuff like that, it was what a lot of my friends did also.
The trigger for Amy's Anorexia-Bulimia was a major disappointment when she was 13. Amy just loved to perform and she was good at it and she had a real passion for dancing. She always said that she wanted to be a dancer when she grew up and if any dancing came on TV she would not miss it. Even if there was a family outing or a birthday party, if dancing was on TV she would refuse to go, until the show had ended.
It was the 18 November 1996 that I believe was the trigger for the 10 years of hell we were about to face. Amy had been practicing for months to get into the school drama group. It was the auditions for the Christmas extravaganza and Amy wanted so badly to get the lead role.
Two days before the auditions she got ill and by the time her trials came she was not in good health. She failed to get the lead role; in fact she was so bad she did not even make the play. When she was leaving the stage I heard one of the girls who was successful say, I told you you’re too fat.
Amy just sobbed and sobbed all night in her room there was nothing I could do, absolutely nothing. I remember saying to my husband John that she will cry herself out and in a couple of days she would be that lovable girl we knew: how wrong this statement turned out to be.
I have heard Anorexia described by another sufferer as being like getting on an escalator that you can’t get off. It just keeps going and you don’t even know how you got on in the first place, all you know is the floor has changed. You think you are in control at first but then it takes control of you and there is nothing you can do about it.
This is basically what happened to Amy, I believe she got on the escalator the night of the auditions looking for something she could control, but only found the Devil instead.
After suffering from Anorexia for a long time and regularly attending counseling, Amy seemed to improve: but the improvement was false as I realized later. Amy was eating large amounts of food but sneaking away to the bathroom and making herself sick. She had developed Bulimia.
People like Amy become very good at hiding their disorder and even though I was aware and on the lookout for any change she completely fooled me. If you are in this position at the moment be very careful and take nothing at face value.
It was the Bulimia that nearly cost Amy her life. I had to go away for a 3 week business trip and during that time Amy was binge eating and purging up to 15 times a day. Her potassium levels dropped to dangerously low levels and she collapsed ending up in hospital.
When I saw her in the hospital she looked absolutely terrible, I hardly recognized her she was so

thin and stick like. Her weight was down to 85 pounds and for someone who was 5.6in is unbelievable. I still wonder how she went down hill so fast it seemed impossible and it is a miracle she did not die being so thin.
The doctors told us Amy could not have lost much more weight and expect to live much longer. They told us that what happens when potassium levels drop below 2 the sufferers heart can simply stop and they die.
That was it for me, I came to the point where I was at my wits end. When Amy nearly died in hospital that was the turning point I had sworn to myself that I would not let her die and I nearly had. That was the catalyst that took me on a quest to find a cure for Amy and with Gods help I did.
What I did
I spent hundreds of hours studying and thousands of dollars learning everything I could about Anorexia and Bulimia.
Then I came across a very old book on Roman psychology that gave me ideas. I then developed these ideas into the secret that changed Amy's life from misery to success.
It is well known fact that ancient Roman suffered bulimia a lot especially during feasts. I read how they looked at bulimia.
Then I thought how could I get more insight and then how to apply it to Amy's condition. I gradually developed it to a bigger program, talked to different people, went to seminars and here we are now with our success and a unique individual home treatment program that works.
Even a doctor was surprised by my treatment and now uses it to treat eating disorders.
