Eating disorder – The Causes

Why does my son have an eating disorder? Why did this happen? Is it my fault?”
There are usually multiple triggers and factors that contribute to an eating disorder, not one single cause. So it is not our intention to place blame, or to suggest that parents have caused the condition. We want to bring awareness to the triggers, so that eating disorders can be more easily averted.
Causes Eating Disorders usually lies in some combination of the social, environment, and biological attributes, and/or the family dysfunction of each individual.

The feel as though they are not good enough, that they never do anything right, feelings of helplessness, loneliness, and a fear of becoming fat.
Traumatic event or experience can also increase the probability of developing an eating disorder such as childhood physical or sexual abuse.

Cultural factors
The society emphasis on being as thin as models at the same time that were encouraged to eat fast food and use alcohol.
Some advertisement promise that thinness leads to romance, success, and a lifetime of happiness.The advertising strategies lead many viewers to feel negatively about their bodies and to think that changing themselves to look a certain way.

Some experts estimate that genetic factors are the root cause of many cases of eating disorders. The results of the studies so far remain unable to confirm that genetics contribute to, or indeed cause, eating disorders. But there is evidence that low levels of the brain chemical serotonin receptors play a role in compulsive eating. These receptors are a part of the pathway which helps signal hunger and fullness to the body and it is thought that this might affect eating disorders.

Relationship and environment pressures
Relationship disappointments/conflicts, feeling controlled by others, and family influences. A mothers who are overly concerned about their daughters' weight and physical attractiveness may put the girls at increased risk of developing an eating disorder. In addition, girls with eating disorders often have father and brothers who are overly critical of their weight.
