Trying to make sense of Eating Disorders in the Muslim World.
Eating Disorders are a growing problem in the Muslim world .We don’t have the statistics for this disease but it is affecting many from Pakistan to Gulf to Western Africa to Indonesia. We can’t even guess the number, since doctors have no requirement to report eating disorders to health agencies, and since most people who suffer disordered eating never seek treatment, it’s hard to get accurate statistics.
There are horrific and destructive consequences for sufferers and their families. If you or your loved ones suffer from this ailment, then Please seek Help.
Detecting the signs of eating disorders early can help prevent its progression Thus, early diagnosis and treatment of eating disorders should be considered an urgent matter.
One of the groups newly affected by disordered eating is young women of Arab and South Asian origin now living in Western countries. One study remarks that this group is now vulnerable because these girls simultaneously experience the conflicting and multiple pressures of Western body-shape ideals, traditional family and cultural expectations, and the challenges of fitting in to a new society.

Becoming aware of new information isn’t always a good thing in the world of eating disorders. Some people learn new things about disordered eating and instead of using it to heal themselves, they add it to their destructive eating arsenal. For this reason, I have made a decision not to share information on behaviors/methods that are triggering for people. This blog is all about creating awareness, healthy living and happiness.
If you struggle with disordered eating and you think some content on this blog offers more risk than benefit, and/or you think it may trigger problematic behavior, proceed with caution and please let me know and I will remove it.
