Were you looking for information about Anorexia? Anorexea is a common misspelling of anorexia.
Anorexia is an eating disorder in which a person can literally starve himself or herself to death. While women tend to develop anorexia more than men, anyone can develop the disease. A common symptom of anorexia is excessive weight loss. People with anorexia believe they are overweight even when they are dangerously thin. They also typically have low self-esteem and are very concerned about pleasing others and overly critical of themselves. Some of the things that people with anorexia may do in order to maintain an abnormally low weight include dieting, fasting, and over-exercising, as well as misusing laxatives, diuretics, or enemas. Treatment for anorexia often includes therapy and nutritional counseling. More severe cases may require hospitalization.
