Nourishing Your Right Hemisphere

Understanding Nourishment

Quality food is nourishment. But eating disorders aren’t about nourishment for your body. If you have an eating disorder you eat too much or too little or ou eat food that provide little or no physical sustenance. You know, and so much on the Internet repeats, that you eat or starve for emotional reasons, for soothing, for going numb. You eat or don’t eat in order to treat your body as if it were a thing whose shape and size you can control (or can't control). But what does using food this way actually mean? Why use food, which is supposed to sustain life, in a life destructive manner?

Are You Bingeing on Eating Disorder Recovery?

theta-healingThis title is not a typo. I don’t mean bingeing during eating disorder recovery. I mean actually bingeing on the recovery process itself.

If you have an eating disorder you enter psychotherapy with fear and hope. You fear the loss of your eating disorder, and you fear that therapy won’t work to end your eating disorder.

Response to Cry for Help

rescue800px-Sea search and rescue exercise 1Today I received a long post from a woman caught in a desperate tangle of bingeing, starving, guilt, shame and anxiety. She is bewildered by her own experience and frantic to find relief without getting professiona*l help.

I believe she represents many women in a similar position of suffering.

If this is also you, this article may help you.
