What is Cibophobia the Fear of? Symptoms, Causes and Treatment

Cibophobia is the fear of food. People with this disorder are usually mistaken for having anorexia. The difference between both conditions is that anorexia is when people stop eating with the fear of their consequences due to pathological conditions while Cibophobia is the fear of food itself. It should b treated as early as possible. Many signs of this phobia are difficult to recognize. People with this fear avoid certain food varieties absolutely like milk and mayonnaise. These people are very cautious about expiry dates. The cause can be a certain bad incident in the past related to that food item like food poisoning due to which these people blame and avoid that food for life. Medications, hypnosis, talk therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy are some of the commonly adopted treatments for the condition.
