Symptoms and effects of bulimia

Uncontrolled wolf-hunger attacks lead to a variety of mood disorders, anxiety and neuroses. The typical response of a person suffering from the illness is an attempt to restore control over the body and calm down – through dieting, physical exercise, and self-induced vomiting. However, the guilt that accompanies bulimia results in withdrawing from social interactions, changing life plans and often reaching for drugs and alcohol.

The most common symptoms of bulimia

  1. episodes of overeating, coupled with a feeling of loss of control, occurring at least twice a week
  2. self-induced vomiting
  3. taking laxatives and diuretics
  4. taking appetite suppressants
  5. intense physical exercise



We provide the very best care and comfort. Our fees are typically between CHF 80,000 – CHF 120,000 per week, depending on the requirements of the individual client. Fees are settled directly by the client (we do not work with insurance companies) and we can supply written quotations upon request.

The Kusnacht Practice services are not covered by Swiss health insurances. All costs are to be covered directly by the clients. Patients who are domiciled in Switzerland and are therefore mandatorily health insured may be reimbursed by their health insurance for medical services in accordance with the Federal Law on Health Insurance (KVG) and its implementing provisions.

Monica, aged 25

“There’s the risk of judgment, the fear you’ll be misunderstood, or that people just won’t care. Being vulnerable is hard, but often openness, honesty and self-disclosure can lead to strength and empowerment. The Kusnacht Practice’s treatment programme and its individual approach have brought me hope. Now I am on a catwalk for myself.”
