THS 097. Binge Eating and Trauma The Hungry Soul Podcast with Rachel Foy

    • Nutrition

Learning how to stop binge eating and feeling so obsessed about food is not really about focusing on the food as much as you think. 
Repairing your connection to your body is one of the areas which often gets ignored (in the mainstream anyway) but it's one we spend a lot of time and focus on in our Soul Fed Woman® Program.
If you cannot connect to your body this is going to cause an issue in some way, especially when it comes to finding peace with food.
Hunger is in the body, if you can't feel it/sense it, what's going to happen?
Satisfaction is in the body, if you can't feel it/sense it, what's going to happen?
Self awareness around food choices, hunger cues, hunger levels are all in the body, if you can't feel/sense, what's going to happen?
You end up having a relationship with food that you are constantly fighting.
For most women, repairing that connection to their body is about practice, intention and having the tools to do so yet for others, what we actually need to focus on is healing trauma.
When someone experiences trauma, regardless of what that trauma may have been, the spiritual self leaves the body and creates disconnection or disassociation, meaning there is a lack of connection.
