This Woman’s Lifelong Fear Of Fruit and Vegetables Was Cured By Hypnotherapy
A Coventry woman was afraid to eat fruit and vegetables. Then she got hypnotherapy sessions from Russell Hemmings that changed her life.
A British woman who has eaten only cheese, fries, and pasta for more than 20 years after developing a fear of fruit and vegetables has been largely cured by hypnotherapy.
Before her treatment, Jenny Edgar would gag if she tried anything other than dry cereal, cheese, and biscuits, or her typical dinner of pasta or chips.
Even her Christmas dinner was mac and cheese washed down with a glass of water.
The 32-year-old health center receptionist, from Coventry in England, avoided eating out as any fruit, vegetables, or fish would leave her feeling ill.
After getting engaged, she decided to face her lifelong fear of nutritious food to lose weight before getting married next March.
Incredibly, after six hypnotherapy sessions, Jenny can now dig into some of her most feared foods.
She said, “When I was a child I would eat raisins and grapes but hated vegetables.
“I really hated the texture on some fruits, like the fuzz on peaches or the juiciness of tomatoes, so just didn’t eat them.
“When I was in my teens, it wasn’t really a problem because I was quite slim but after going to college and having my son I really noticed the weight going on.
“One Sunday I went for dinner at my fiancé’s house and I had to take my own ready-meal of macaroni and cheese.
“It was very embarrassing and it was getting me down. I just thought to myself that if I don’t sort it out now then I never will.”
Jenny also decided to tackle her fears to help her eight-year-old son Kian have a healthy diet.
“Because I don’t like fruit and veg I’ve only been buying him strawberries but I want him to try lots of different things.”
