Is Opting Out Of Processed Food The New Eating Disorder?  ???

March 4, 2015 | By Daisy Luther | Business, General Health, Propaganda, Sleuth Journal

Itís time for an intervention. We need to talk.


Are you concerned about the stuff they call ďfoodĒ at the grocery store?     Do you opt for whole foods most of the time, and feel unwell if you eat so-called ďjunk foodĒ?     Are your views about food causing you to make changes in your day-to-day life?    Do you believe there is a connection between the food you eat and your physical and mental well-being?   

Then, itís time to face reality.  If you choose to eat food without chemicals on a regular basis, you, my friend, are mentally ill.


Itís called Orthorexia Nervosa.
 

A study found on PubMed explains. (Wow, itís like they know me.  ;D

Orthorexia  is an obsessive-compulsive process characterized by extreme care for and selection of what is considered to be pure Ďhealthyí food. This ritual leads to a very restrictive diet and social isolation as a compensation. Orthorexics obsessively avoid foods which may contain artificial colours, flavours, preservant agents, pesticide residues or genetically modified ingredients, unhealthy fats, foods containing too much salt or too much sugar and other components. The way of preparation, kitchenware and other tools used are also part of the obsessive ritual. 

Huh.  They say that like itís a bad thing.

Donít despair. If youíre a sufferer, thereís help.  ;D

The same study states:


Treatment of orthorexia require a multidisciplinary team 
involving physicians    , psychotherapists    and dietitians  . In some cases, antiserotoninergic drugs         may be required as part of the treatment.


So the long and the short of it? 

If you want to be healthy, youíre sick. You need a team of doctors and dietitians to cure you from trying to be healthy. And maybe some medicine. The desire for good health is an illness, and Big Pharma and Big Medical wants you to be better. And by better, they mean you should have no hesitation whatsoever about consuming the garbage passed off as food in the grocery stores. 

Wow, Iíll bet that raising as much of my own food as possible really means Iím in need of intervention.  ;) ;D

Just to clear up any confusion, itís not about weight loss.  Doctor Thomas Dunn  is an associate professor of psychology at the University of Northern Colorado who co-authored a paper in Psychosomatics, outlining the diagnostic criteria for the disorder. ďItís different than going overboard because you want to be skinny. Rather, itís linked to people who are trying to be as healthy as they can be.Ē (source: New American)

Corporations are losing money when you make healthy choices.
