How You Can Successfully Overcome Bulimia like Nicole Scherzinger

Published on 07. 24. 2015

Discover how Nicole Scherzinger, a Hawaiian actress, struggled with bulimia, an eating disorder that took a toll on her health. Learn about the proper treatment program for this type of behavioral bulimia and how you or your loved one can overcome this behavioral disorder for good.


Hawaiian celebrity Nicole Scherzinger admitted publicly that she battled with behavioral addiction-bulimia nervosa at the height of her X-factor career in 2012. Bulimia is an eating disorder in which the bulimic person eats a lot of food within a short span of time then induces vomiting or takes laxatives to purge the food out. Others take diuretics, exercise excessively, fast, or take stimulants to get the food out of their system.

Bulimia is closely linked to drugs and alcohol addiction, anxiety and depression. Bulimics also have a high risk for suicide because they have the tendency to harm themselves.

During an interview Nicole said that it’s not easy for her to talk about her addiction. According to her, it’s “a shameful thing and it’s a dark place” and that she thought that no one else will correlate and it is embarrassing to tell the world about it.

Nicole said in another interview that a lot of different things caused her bulimia-after she left for college and it heightened during her X-factor career due to depression. She started losing her voice and there was an incident when her manager found her passed out on the floor. Nicole finally overcame bulimia after she made a brave decision that her addiction has to stop and worked on it. She said that she never gave up on herself and others battling with this disorder shouldn’t give up as well. According to Nicole, it is important to have self-acceptance and not just to put up an image. The healthy image one projects has to come from within.

Is Bulimia fatal?

Bulimia is a serious behavioral condition that can cause death if left untreated. Your body needs the right amount of food to function and sufficient levels of vitamins and minerals for cells to survive. Forced starvation plus electrolyte imbalance because of vomiting and forced bowel movements can lead to severe weight loss, poor concentration, and organ damage.
