Is it really possible that wanting to eat healthy constitutes a mental disorder? Some psychiatrists think so, and want to officially classify it as such. They even have a special name for this new mental condition already called, ‘orthorexia nervosa.’ And, of course, they already want to medicate people for this condition.
Orthorexia nervosa is officially described as “a pathological obsession for biologically pure and healthy nutrition.” News outlets, all over the country, are jumping on the bandwagon to report this phenomenon. Now, newscasters are telling us it is not normal for anyone to want to grow their own food, eat (only) clean and natural foods or, for that matter, to be ‘overly’ concerned with the nutritional content of what they eat.
As I’m sure you can understand, the field of conventional psychiatry is deeply connected to the pharmaceutical industry. When new psychiatric disorders are “discovered,” the drug companies can make medicines to treat them, and psychiatrists get new business.
