Dear Thessa
I must admit that I have not heard of an eating disorder called "magma"? Does this have something to do with eating soil or rocks? If you could tell me a little bit more about the symptoms then I can perhaps help. The standard eating disorders are anorexia (starvation), bulimia (inducing vomiting or overuse of harsh laxatives), orthorexia (eating only certain foods that the person regards as super healthy, which then leads to undernutrition) and bigorexia (excessive development of muscles to look like Superman).
