Free yourself from fear and start expanding the types of foods you feel comfortable eating
Do you feel anxious about eating some kinds of foods?
How would your life be different if you could start to find pleasure in eating again?
Fear of food, or cibophobia, can present in many different ways. Maybe you’re afraid of highly perishable foods such as mayonnaise and milk, or especially preoccupied with expiration dates. Perhaps the idea of eating food cooked by others sends you into anxiety. Or it could be that you had a bad experience, such as choking or vomiting, after eating a particular type of food, and now you stay away from anything that even resembles that food.
Whatever the cause, anxiety around food not only prevents the enjoyment that can come from experiencing a wide range of culinary experiences, it can also mean you are not meeting your full nutritional requirements. Maybe you’ve also experienced the painful social stigma that can surround eating disorders, especially since avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID) is often mistaken for anorexia.
How long have you had this phobia? Has it changed over time? ARFID often worsens with time, so that you may find yourself avoiding more and more food types – which puts your physical health in even more danger. Many people are so good at avoiding or ignoring the problem that they don’t even notice the progressive restriction in their eating habits, which of course makes it all the more dangerous.
Why willpower alone is not enough
Until you overcome your food phobia, you will never be able to enjoy life to its fullest. And you can overcome it. Yes, it will take patience, perseverance, and commitment. But despite what you may think, it’s not all about willpower.
If you’ve tried to overcome your phobia with willpower before, you’ll know that simply forcing yourself to face your fear can be worse than useless. And there’s a good reason for that.
Like all phobias, cibophobia occurs due to a faulty pattern match in the brain – that is, your brain has mistakenly learned to associate powerful negative emotions with certain foods. And because this occurs at a subconscious level, it can be near impossible to control it through conscious willpower.
But what if you could access your subconscious to break down those faulty pattern matches and replace them with healthier associations?
Well, you can – that’s exactly what hypnosis is designed to do.
