Eating disorders are among some of the toughest addictions to beat because they are so central to how we feel and how we navigate the world. It is not a simple act of willpower or lack thereof that determines the type of relationship we have with food and subsequently the type of bodies we have.
Many of us have struggled with weight loss and maintaining a healthy relationship with food, however, it is an issue of internal alignment. Our eating habits are often connected to our feelings and how we use food, or perhaps how our bodies use food as fuel, or do not use the food properly because we are not digesting as we should.
There is so much we could learn and understand about ourselves if we seek to understand what our bodies are saying. Often our bodies are communicating with us, telling us, for example, that we are not hungry, we are thirsty. Yet many of us will eat instead of drinking a glass of water, not because we are deliberately ignoring our body, we just don’t know how to listen.
Kinesiology can help us do this. With Kinesiology you can learn where your energy is not flowing, through muscle testing. Once we know where your body needs help, we can apply a range of gentle yet powerful healing techniques to learn what your body needs and tap into that inner knowing that will change your relationship with yourself and then with your food. The result is an improvement in health, wellbeing, life energy and vitality.
Mind and Body Connection
Physical health and mental health are very closely related. Some people eat to suppress emotions while some people deprive themselves of food. Bulimia and anorexia, for example, can be described as an extreme form of control, this may mean you are so tightly held in other areas of your life.
Eating disorders can also arise from trauma that is manifested in the physical – through how we relate to food and how we weaponise food and think it is the enemy.
This is where mind, body and soul food coaching comes in. My work combines Dynamic Eating Psychology and Mind-Body Nutrition. We use a combination of practical coaching techniques, results-oriented psychology, clinical nutrition, and body-centered practices. These are combined with mind-body science and a positive, compassionate approach to challenges with food and health.
It is important to understand why you have the relationship you have with food.
How has this affected other areas of your life and most importantly are you ready to start your healing process?
