Heat in the treatment of patients with anorexia nervosa.

Gutierrez E, Vazquez R.

Departamento de Psicologia Clinica y Psicobiologia, Facultad de Psicologia, Campus Universitario Sur, Santiago de Compostela, Spain.

The paper presents the results of heat treatment in three cases of anorexia nervosa (AN), in which marked overactivity and/or strenuous exercising were prominent clinical features. Heat was supplied in three ways: continuous exposure to a warm environment, wearing a thermal waistcoat, and sauna baths in an infrared cabin. The outcomes went far beyond what had been expected, as the disappearance of hyperactivity was followed by progressive recovery.
