Sitophobia- Food Phobia


What is Sitophobia?
Sitophobia is the fear of food or eating. The origin of the word Sito is Greek (meaning food) and phobia is Greek (meaning fear). Sitophobia is considered to be a specific phobia, which is discussed on the home page. Sitophobia is also known as Sitiophobia and Cibophobia.


What are the causes?
It is generally accepted that phobias arise from a combination of external events (i.e. traumatic events) and internal predispositions (i.e. heredity or genetics). Many specific phobias can be traced back to a specific triggering event, usually a traumatic experience at an early age. Social phobias and agoraphobia have more complex causes that are not entirely known at this time. It is believed that heredity, genetics, and brain chemistry combine with life-experiences to play a major role in the development of phobias. (Wikipedia - phobia).


What are the symptoms?
As with any phobia, the symptoms vary by person depending on their level of fear. The symptoms typically include extreme anxiety, dread and anything associated with panic such as shortness of breath, rapid breathing, irregular heartbeat, sweating, excessive sweating, nausea, dry mouth, nausea, inability to articulate words or sentences, dry mouth and shaking.


Can I take medicine?
Medicine can be prescribed, but please note that these medications can have side effects and/or withdrawal systems that can be severe. It is also importation to note that medicines do not cure phobias, at best they only temporarily suppress the systems. However, there are treatments for phobias, which include counseling, hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, and Neuro-Linguistic programming. Please click on the link at the top of the page called “Treatment Information” to find out more information on these types of treatments.


Bila orang bercakap, "hari ni saya makan ayam penyet. " "Nina, jom pergi makan ayam penyet, sedap dekat kedai ni". "
Jom nak try kedai Wong Solo dekat kampung baru tu, sama macam dekat indonesia punya."


Semua ayat-ayat di atas buat aku rasa fobia. Aku sejak balik dari Bandung  dan terkena food poisoning (sila baca) membuatkan diri fobia dengan makanan indonesia. Orang sebut makanan indonesia je, aku dah boleh bayangkan keadaan aku yang muntah-muntah dan diarrhea yang sangat teruk tu. Sampai 2kg berat badan turun.  


Dengar menu atau gambar pun boleh membuatkan aku rasa pening. Mungkin terlampau sangat aku fikir pasal sakit perut. hahahahJadi kalau 10 orang cakap ayam penyet dekat kedai Danau Kota sedap ke, kedai mana-mana lah. Aku memang tak ada selera nak ikut. Fobia makanan indonesia masih melekat dalam diri aku. Hahaha. Tunggu la setahun dua, atau tahun depan ke. Nanti hilang la FOOD PHOBIA aku nie. hehehe


p/s: Tapi aku masih suka lagi minum Fruit-tea hehehe
