The case for warming as an adjunctive treatment for AN patients is based on strong experimental evidence gathered from
research on animals with Activity-Based Anorexia (ABA). We posit that the beneficial effect of heat results, at least in
part, from heat blocking the vicious cycle that hyperactivity plays on AN. Hyperactivity decreases caloric intake by
interfering with feeding and increases energy expenditure through excess motor activity which in turn increases
emaciation that further strengthens anorexic thinking.
