London [UK], Oct. 10 (ANI): Nowadays, people are becoming obsessive for losing weight and switching to healthy eating.
But most of the people don't tend to know what they actually are eating and this has become a common problem these days.
But a study has found that an obsession with eating clean food may be endangering lives reports The Independent.
Someone suffering from orthorexia is "imprisoned by a range of rules which they impose on themselves."
"It was as if she preferred to lose her sight. Rather than betray her commitment to animals," Ortega said.
This problem of obsessive healthy eating disorder is known as orthorexia nervosa.
Experts believe that orthorexia sufferers could be treated with cognitive behavioural therapy, which may involve learning how to deal with situations that can cause anxiety about eating, relaxation techniques and discussing excessive beliefs. (ANI)
