Is Opting Out of Processed Food the New Eating Disorder? Tags: Big Pharma Conspiracy Health Medical Fascism

By Daisy Luther

It’s time for an intervention. We need to talk.

Are you concerned about the stuff they call “food” at the grocery store?  Do you opt for whole foods most of the time, and feel unwell if you eat so-called “junk food”?  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, it’s time to face reality.  If you choose to eat food without chemicals on a regular basis, you, my friend, are mentally ill.

It’s called Orthorexia Nervosa.

study found on PubMed explains. (Wow, it’s like they know me.)

Orthorexia is an obsessive-compulsive process characterized by extreme care for and selection of what is considered to be pure ‘healthy’ 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 it’s a bad thing.

Don’t despair. If you’re a sufferer, there’s help. The same study states:

Treatment of orthorexia require a multidisciplinary team involving physicians, psychoterapists 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, you’re 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, I’ll bet that raising as much of my own food as possible really means I’m in need of intervention.

Just to clear up any confusion, it’s 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. “It’s different than going overboard because you want to be skinny. Rather, it’s linked to people who are trying to be as healthy as they can be.” (source: New American)

Corporations are losing money when you make healthy choices.

Gosh, do you think this could have anything to do with plummeting sales for processed food companies? There are a lot of corporations with skin in the game. An article on Natural Society by Christina Sarich noted that sales are down for the following food manufacturers (Wait – is my orthorexia nervosa showing when I say that the word “food” should never be followed by the word “manufacturer”?)

  • ConAgra (Hunts, Swiss Miss, Chef Boy Ardee)
  • Kraft (Oscar Mayer, Jell-O, Maxwell House, Velveeta)
  • Kellogg
  • Campbell’s Soup
  • Coca-Cola

Of course, companies like this have a very vested interest in making you think you’re crazy for not eating their offerings. And they have big advertising dollars. Perhaps that’s why the mainstream media is FULL of articles letting you know you have an eating disorder – because their advertisers need you to think you’re nuts.  And it’s a two for one deal for the media outlets – they can push treatment options that are available from their other advertisers.

For example, our good friends at CNN (who, incidentally had an ad in the sidebar for a Big Pharma medication on this article) explain:

There’s now a name for people dangerously addicted to all things healthy — a sufferer of orthorexia nervosa. Characterized by disordered eating fueled by a desire for “clean” or “healthy” foods, those diagnosed with the condition are overly pre-occupied with the nutritional makeup of what they eat. They rigidly avoid any food they deem to be “unhealthy,” or spend excessive amounts of time and money in search of the “most pure” foods…The condition is under-studied, and no one knows how widespread it is.

Articles from The Wall Street Journal and ABC News make it seem as though by refusing to consume processed foods or GMO foods, you are at risk of becoming malnourished. In the extreme examples they give, it’s obvious there is a far deeper issue than a desire to avoid junk food and eat clean. Most of us that opt for healthful, healing diets don’t obsess over things like broken egg yolks, yet we’re all grouped together by the media.

Meet the “Experts” Who Think Healthy Eating is a Sign of Mental Illness

What’s more, the people who should be able to help identify eating disorders are being professionally indoctrinated. Last year, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics received a “fact” *cough* sheet outlining the alleged benefits of processed foods from the International Food Information Council. It’s important to note that the IFIC receives funding from Cargill, Coca-Cola, Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, Yum! Brands (the parent company of Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, KFC, and WingStreet), General Mills, Mars, McDonald’s, Monsanto, PepsiCo,  and Red Bull.  You know, all of the companies that produce the recommended processed foods that will benefit your diet.  Here’s a look at that handout, if you’re interested.

 

If you wonder why many people are so confused about what constitutes good nutrition you need look no further than the propaganda being spouted by these so-called “experts”.  There is a real problem when the people sponsoring the nutrition lessons are the very purveyors of GMO crops, potato chips, soda pop, and fast food.

Many people are out there trying valiantly to make the best possible choices for their families on limited budgets, but they must combat the constant disinformation and now, scrutiny with regard to their mental health.  These folks are being deliberately deceived by food manufacturers, but even worse, by professional societies like the American Medical Association, the American Heart Association, the American Psychiatric Association, and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Maybe if there wasn’t so much toxic garbage out there being offered as “food”, people wouldn’t have to be so diligent about what they consume. Maybe the people with the real mental disorders are the ones pushing the chemical laden, non-food crap in a bright, cheerful box, a box that contains things which are known to cause cancer, reproductive difficulties, hormone disruption, gut disorders, and inflammation.

Maybe they should come up with a name to identify those who display enduring antisocial behavior, diminished empathy and remorse, and disinhibited or bold behavior.

Oh yeah. Wait. They did that already. There is a diagnosis for those people.

They’re called psychopaths.

And they’re the ones calling healthy eaters crazy.

How To Heal Cavities Naturally Without Going To The Dentist! – A True Family Story Tags: Natural health Prevent Disease

by Sarah Pope, The Healthy Home Economist. Originally published on The Health Home Economist web site, May 12, 2011

Dentists will not tell you this because big money is involved in the dental industry because of it. If everyone knew how easy it is to cure tooth decay, no one would go to the dentist. If you ask people whether caries and teeth can be healed naturally, 99% of the answers would be that that is impossible.

Dentists also, sometimes because their own earnings, sometimes because of fraud, will always say that the decay cannot be cured naturally but only with dental techniques.

You were told that tooth decay is caused by diet with too much sugar in it. The American Dental Association says that tooth decay and cavities are formed when carbohydrates are stuck between the teeth, creating an acidic environment in which tooth’s enamel rots and thus decay is formed.

Part of their reason is correct (the one with the carbohydrate), but there are a number of holes in this theory. There are many documented cases of tribes and people who live outside the modern society. These people have a bunch of carbohydrates stuck in their teeth all the time and never brush or floss their teeth.

Weston Price (dentist in the early 20th century) traveled the world in search of such people, in order to examine their teeth and thoroughly document his findings. Bacteria also like to eat foods such as vegetables, meat, fruit and dairy products, but they have never been named as the cause of tooth decay and cavities.

In stark contrast to the current conventional “wisdom”, Dr. Weston Price wrote about a number of situations in his practice, even in the 1920’s and 1930‘s, when voids and cavities were cured without the need of drillings and fillings. Dr. Price discovered through a research that both cavities and tooth decay, caused by nutritional deficiency, are treated by itself.

Can the body heal itself?

If you think about the manner of an open mind, leaving all ideas of caries in the background, do not you think this makes any sense? Would not our body be able to treat cavities just like it cures a broken bone or a cut on your hand? Why would our teeth be different from a broken wrist?

In addition we will present a part of a woman’s story linked to caries and how to cure it.

“After reading an epic book by Doctor Price, “Nutrition and physical degeneration” a few years ago, my head was full of thoughts that caries can really be cured with proper nutrition over time. But believing in something intellectually and knowing how it works in practice are two very different things, right?

For this reason, I am very excited to tell you about a recent story about one of my children. You see, my oldest child has recently developed a cavity in his tooth, in his right maxillary lateral incisor. Caries was behind the right tooth on the gums. My husband noticed it one night, as a person who diligently protects teeth and brushing and flossing.

There definitely was a hole in the tooth, and it was not so little. We both agreed that caries should immediately be filled with seal.

I called the dentist immediately and arranged a meeting. Meanwhile, I began to insist for my son to take 3 butter-oil capsules every morning along with his normal, everyday spoonful of fermented cod liver oil.

With that big hole in the back of his incisors, he drank both oils. Dr. Price found that the tooth decay can be faster healed when these two therapeutic and nourishing oils are taken together.

The dentist meeting was within a few weeks, so I continued giving my child butter oil capsules every day. I also told my son that he really needed to get back to his breakfast of two slices of toast every morning with raw butter and honey instead of tahini (a thick paste that is made from ground sesame seeds, sesame oil) and honey, which he actually had for breakfast in the last few months.

My son loves raw butter and he just got out of his routine where he used to eat it every morning. Did this simple change in the breakfast have effect on the development of the cavity? Probably yes.

I did not change anything else in his diet. He did not stop to eat cereals and he still occasionally eats sugar through “junk food” that he gets in his school. He was still a teenager, after all. Try to remove grains and sugars from teenagers’ diet and you will get riot. Children need to learn some things the hard way.

I decided that I cannot protect my children from these things and keep them in a balloon – you can only learn to be wise and they will learn moderation themselves over time.

Anyway, back to the story of caries.

As it turned out, one day before the meeting with the dentist, we were informed that the dental treatment to be moved to another date because the dentist had to go out of town for family reasons. So the dates for my baby move for a couple of weeks, but all that time he continued to take the 3 capsules oil butter with a spoonful of fermented cod liver oil after breakfast of two slices of toast with butter and raw honey.

Last week prior to the dentist, I decided to take a peek into the cavity and see if everything was worse. About a month has passed and my husband was a little worried due to the fact that it was one of the top front teeth. I took a flashlight and my son leaned his head back and I looked, and looked, and looked!

There was no caries and no cavity

That’s right! No more holes anywhere. It is completely filled and was smooth as the tooth next to it. I told my husband, and he also looked at it. He was delighted when he saw that the holes were gone.

I will continue to take him to the dentist to make sure there is not tooth decay and to check whether the tooth cured all right.

The best news is that we have changed very little in order for my son’s tooth to be cured. My son has continued its normal, nutritious food at home with “omissions” in his diet, which usually occur during school and fun events.

We just we add butter oil in our regular diet along with fermented cod liver oil, and my son went back to the raw butter and tahini on his toast every morning.

Dentist’s conclusion

Indeed, we took the son to the dentist to make a full review and to check that there are no voids and cavities in the mouth of my son. The tooth was there but the hole was gone. Diet can really cure tooth decay!

I hope that this story is encouraging enough for you to make some changes in your diet! Dr. Price’s research actually works in practice!
