Were you looking for information about Anorexia? Anoroxia is a common misspelling of anorexia.
People with anorexia have a distorted body image and believe that they are overweight even when they are extremely thin. The eating disorder is identified by an intense desire to be thin, refusal to eat, repeated dieting attempts, and excessive weight loss. Treatment for anorexia involves hospitalization (in some cases), psychotherapy, behavioral therapy, and support groups. The course and outcome of the disease will vary among individuals; some fully recover after a single episode, while some have a fluctuating pattern of weight gain and relapse.
