Biofeedback is effective in reducing anxiety, food cravings, and rumination in individuals with eating disorders.
Biofeedback is a non-invasive technique that can reduce the need for medications in case of co-morbid conditions such as anxiety and depression along with an eating disorder. It helps individuals with eating disorders become better at emotional regulation skills, reduce their food cravings and rumination, and teaches them to relax when triggered by their unhealthy urges regarding food.
The number of sessions required depends on the condition of the individual and their response to the biofeedback training sessions.
