Alternative Therapy: Yoga in Prevention and Treatment of Binge Eating Disorder

Kyle J. Norton 

Yoga may be used as an integrated form of exercise for prevent and treatment of binge eating disorder, a Catholic University of Leuven study suggested.

Binge eating disorder is a condition characterized by compulsive eating huge amounts of food while feeling out of control and powerless to stop.
The syndrome is a common eating disorder in the United States, affecting 3.5% of females and 2% of males.

Yoga, the accident technique practice for harmonized external and internal body well being, through breath control, meditation, bodily movement and gesture..... has been well known for people in Western world and some parts in Asia due to health benefits reported by various respectable institutes' research and supported by health advocates.

In the review of literature from EMBASE, PsycINFO, PubMed, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature, Physiotherapy Evidence Database and Cochrane Library up to August 2012 for studies compared physical therapy with a placebo condition, control intervention or standard care, including 211 female community patients (age range: 25-63 years) met all selection criteria, researchers found that
1. Yoga participants showed a significantly reduced number of binges
2. Yoga group expressed a decrease of body mass index (BMI)
3. Yoga participants displayed insignificantly ameliorated depression in compared to aerobic exercise and combined aerobic exercise and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) groups

Dr. Vancampfort D, the led author said, " Because of severe co-morbid psychiatric and physical conditions, binge eating disorder is one of the most difficult psychiatric conditions to treat. Both yoga and aerobic exercise have shown promise in reducing binge eating pathology and weight".

Other, also in searching databases of PubMed, PsychInfo, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature, Cochrane Library, Physiotherapy Evidence Database, the Dutch Journal of Psychiatry (Tijdschrift voor Psychiatrie), het Tijdschrift voor Vaktherapie and Actual Themata derived from psychomotor therapy screened for the period January 1994 to August 2011, 8 studies met the met the inclusion and exclusion criteria suggested that
1. Yoga lessons induced a significant weight loss to attendees
2. Yoga participants displayed fewer symptoms of depression, when used alone or conjunction with cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
3. Conbined Yoga and and CBT demonstrated a less eating disorderpathology than does CBT alone

The authors concluded that yoga expressed the beneficial effects on weight-loss as well as on the reduction of binge eating disorder.

More importantly, in a randomised trial undertaken with participants of women between 25 and 63 years of age identified with diagnostic criteria for binge eating disorder (BED) and a BMI>25  assigned to yoga (n=45) or wait-list control (n=45) groups. Of these, 25 in each group were analysed, Dr. McIver S, the led author at the Deakin University filed the following results in compared to control  group
1. Yoga group showed a reduction in binge eating in self-reported
2. Yoga group expressed a statistical significance of more willing to involve in physical activity.
3. Yoga group also showed a small yet statistically significant reductions for BMI, hips and waist

With the information collected, there are no doubt that yoga formal weekly sessions and home-based programs are potentially efficacious for the treatment of binge eating.
