Fear of Food

Patients have come to me in despair, saying, “There’s nothing left that I can eat! Beef contains hormones, chickens are raised under cruel conditions, salmon is endangered, cheese and eggs have too much saturated fat, and tofu contains estrogen-like compounds, I think I’m sensitive to gluten. I'm avoiding tomatoes and potatoes because I've heard that the nightshade family can make arthritis worse, and dairy products give me gas. I don't have anything left to eat!!“
