Woman with food phobia finally enjoys first Christmas dinner
A teacher who was so phobic about food that she ate only chicken nuggets, garlic bread and plain toast told how she finally tucked into her first ever Christmas dinner – thanks to hypnosis.
Convinced she grew up suffering from Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID), where sufferers restrict their eating by avoiding certain foods or food groups, Nikki Gwynne, 30, was so phobic she ate a very limited diet.
He issue was resolved in just 40 minutes during a session with a hypnotherapist.
"I couldn't believe it, Nikki said. "Once I realised it'd been a success, I just wanted to try more and more."
