Currently, there is no known way to prevent the onset of bulimia nervosa. Less social and cultural emphasis on physical perfection might help, but it is difficult to make sweeping societal changes. And, as stressed earlier, the best method for preventing the progression of this disorder is early intervention by contacting your medical health professional and receiving psychotherapy. Adults have an immeasurable impact on their children, and focusing on developing a healthy lifestyle is key to raising healthy children in all aspects of life. Teaching children to adopt a healthy diet as a way of life and incorporating fun activities into their day will allow this to become second nature to them. Children should also be taught an emphasis on their internal characteristics and qualities rather than the external focus so much of society and the media tend to focus on. Action is the best method of teaching, and curtailing your own self-criticism and behavior will reflect substantially on your children’s impressions of themselves .
