Get Help With Orthorexia Nervosa & Healthy Food Obsessions

Orthorexia nervosa literally means a “fixation on righteous eating. Orthorexia characterised by an excessive preoccupation with eating healthy food.

Orthorexia Nervosa is an eating disorder where the person systematically avoids specific foods that they believe to be harmful. Although not yet recognised by the DSM5 for an eating disorder, awareness for orthorexia is rapidly growing and those affected by the condition are relatively easily identified. Orthorexia turns a seemingly beneficial diet into a rocky road of obsession fixated on “pure” food consumption.
