One of the most profound and easily recognized
mind-body connections is related to body weight.
Habits, stress level, lack of sleep, poor exercise,
lack of self-worth, and other emotional issues all
affect your weight. Sometimes we eat as a
response to our feelings. This is a learned response
that was most likely formed as a defense mechanism
In my experience, losing weight is a huge challengeboth
physically and psychologicallyfor most people. Weight
loss requires a major shift in the mind-body continuum.
Successful weight loss is a combination of exercise, diet, and
emotional well being. My belief is that the mind-body connection
is an integral part of developing a healthy body and is
an essential ingredient in a successful weight loss program.
My weight management
sessions start with the nutritional philosophy of
Ann Louise Gittleman and
The Fat Flush®
plan is the prescribed diet. Appropriate, non-strenuous exercise is recommended.
I will use techniques to teach you to embrace and fully
engage with your feelings. You will learn how
to work through cravings and focus on the present day
of your diet. In addition, we will address your
attitude toward your physical body since your attitude
can affect your weight.
These sessions will also allow for constant feedback
on an as-needed basis through email and short phone
conversations. Anyone losing weight needs support from
a stable emotional presence that is nurturing and encouraging
while being direct and real.
Note: Some people have trouble losing weight because of enzyme,
hormonal, or other physical irregularities. Referrals
to other practitioners are available if other medical
factors become apparent.
