Obesity – Cause and Remedy

A well-known psychologist recently wrote about the issue Of Obesity in America for the Practical Advise column, which appeared in my local newspaper. The title of her article, “Obesity Is A Medical Illness, Not A Behavioral Disorder,” shocked and frightened me. She stated, “Obesity meets all of the clinical definitions of a disease.”

In view of the fact that this is a syndicated column and hundreds of newspapers will carry this article, I am compelled to write a rebuttal to this outrageous miscarriage of facts. Maybe with some stretch of imagination, being obese may have earned a medical disease diagnosis—becoming or staying obese is the result of emotional adaptations and indoctrinations—environment, family, religion and society are contributors to the onset and proliferation of obesity.

The frightening aspect of this article is the proclamation that Obesity Is A Disease, reinforcing the doctor’s role as an authority and the person’s role as a helpless sick person. This indoctrination instills the belief that a “disease,” is out of the direct control of the person and that the doctor has a “treatment,” and that the person must “listen to the doctor” in order to “get well again.” Thus, learned helplessness and submissiveness is then vastly amplified by this insidious edict. The person becomes more dutiful to the doctor and to the demoralizing principles of prescriptions, which is the mainstay of Traditional Western Medicine. Denial of ones responsibility for ones health and compliance to the doctors authority becomes a way of life, anchored in place by false facts.

The National Center for Health Statistics, 2007, set the obesity rate for Americans at 31 percent. This statistic is no doubt low, because many obese people do not appear in statistical data, because they seldom use medical services in order to be counted.

Side effects of obesity includes: diabetes, cardiovascular disease, sleep apnea and depression, which are diagnosed as medical conditions. However, from a metaphysical standpoint, these issues can be traced back to emotional issues which precipitated the person to use food as a coping mechanism.
