Britney?s nine-year nightmare, revealed in an American magazine, was confirmed by a senior source at the ?24,000-a-month Promises centre in Malibu, California. ?Doctors are alarmed at the physical state she is in,? said the source. ?They confronted her about her desperately unhealthy lifestyle and the truth came pouring out.?
Britney said she managed to stop the dangerous habit during her two pregnancies. But as soon as sons Sean Preston and Jayden James were born, she began the desperately unhealthy cycle again in an effort to lose her added baby weight.
On top of her alcohol and alleged cocaine use, the bulimia turned her into a ?human wreck?, according to the source, who added: ?When she came here she was shaking and baking. Her whole body was wracked by spasms and she was hot one minute, then freezing cold the next. Her first week in detox was real hell. She was in a total mess but slowly she?s pulling through.?
Dietary specialists at Promises are working with doctors to help Britney conquer the eating disorder which was discovered when specialists realized why her medications were not working. The source said: ?For the first few days, she?d take her tablets, then go off and eat breakfast or lunch. She was throwing the whole lot up, so, naturally, her medications weren?t working. Now the medical experts know why, her progress should pick up a little speed.?
