Associations with disgust sensitivity, anxiety and levels of sensory processing
The factors that may contribute to the emergence of self-disgust have not yet been established (Power, Overton & Simpson, 2015) however there is an increasing interest into the physiological and inherent contributors to the onset of disordered eating. It remains unclear whether sensory processing is associated with self-disgust within disordered eating, but it can be argued that understanding the motivation to change the subjective body experience within disordered eating is critical to understanding and altering the pathophysiology of this illness (Zucker et al., 2013).
