Physiological Implications of Orthorexia

Answered on August 19, 2014

I find that a major factor in my general level of well-being (as identified by good digestion, energy, and sleep) is how little I am thinking about my general level of well-being.

It's as though the thought of being sick or sub-optimal in some way is a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Anyone have a similar experience?

And then from feeling great thinking about how you feel progresses to feeling bad somehow because you are anxious about that for some reason? Doesn't sound as plausible. Your bottom line, that it is bad to feel bad about feeling bad remains valid, though.

Or is the that if you are feeling bad you start thinking about how you are feeling more? Sometimes it's hard to tell. If you are already feeling bad and develop anxiety about how bad you feel it can certainly make it worse, but what's the root cause. If you're feeling great do you start to think about how you feel more?

I never thought of myself as "broke" even under full blown SAD. It's hard to know what healthy is until you've acquired some reference experiences.

The irony of this post just dawned on me.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
