Rumination Syndrome Treatment
Our Veterans Rehab Treatment Centers offer specialized treatment programs for Rumination Syndrome. With years of experience, Our Residential Mental Health Treatment Centers work tirelessly to meet your treatment needs.
WHAT IS Rumination Syndrome?
Rumination syndrome is a condition in which people repeatedly vomit undigested or partially digested food, rechew it, and then either swallow it or spit it out. Because the food hasn’t yet been digested, it reportedly tastes normal and isn’t acidic, as vomit is. This typically happens at every meal, soon after eating.
The precise cause of rumination syndrome isn’t clear. But it appears to be caused by an increase in abdominal pressure and can be triggered by Anxiety Disorders. This Eating Disorder is frequently confused with bulimia, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and gastroparesis. The condition has long been known to occur in infants and people with developmental disabilities. This condition is more likely to occur in people with anxiety, depression or other psychiatric disorders.
Our Veterans Rehabs and Detox Centers, located from Laguna Beach to St. Augustine, treat Rumination Syndrome through the use of one on one therapy, group therapy, mindfulness techniques and nutritional groups.
Symptoms of Rumination Syndrome
Some of the Physical Symptoms can include:
- Effortless regurgitation, typically within 10 minutes of eating
- Abdominal pain or pressure relieved by regurgitation
- A feeling of fullness
- Bad breath
- Unintentional weight loss
This isn’t usually associated with retching.
Untreated, this can damage the esophagus, which runs between your mouth and stomach.
Other Complications can include:
- Unhealthy weight loss
