Balemia

Were you looking for information about Bulimia? Balemia is a common misspelling of bulimia.
 
Bulimia is an eating disorder in which someone eats a lot of food in a short amount of time and then purges the food from the body. A person with bulimia might purge by making himself or herself throw up or taking laxatives, pills, or liquids that increase how quickly food moves through the body. Bulimia is more than just a problem with food -- it often has roots in psychological problems. Some of the things that may play a role in the development of bulimia include biology, culture, and stressful events or life changes. Treating bulimia involves confronting the underlying psychological issues as well as teaching a person how to eat normally again.
